The latest big-screen versions of Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth are reportedly living in a "sleek lakeside residence," as opposed to Wayne Manor, which has been Batman's headquarters for every film, except "The Dark Knight."

Also in the issue, Irons describes his Alfred as more "hands-on" than previous takes, saying, "He’s a man who can actually do anything if he has to."

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams and others, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hits screens on March 25.
