Morgan Freeman's Lucius Fox has provided Batman with an array of wonderful gadgets in the retooled Batman franchise, but he leaps into action to aid the superhero in The Dark Knight Rises.
Digital Spy sat down with the esteemed actor to discuss Fox's relationship with Wayne over the course of three movies, letting his stuntman do all the work, and why he "theoretically" might return for more Batman movies.
Asked if anything surprised him when he saw the movie for the first time, Freeman responded: "Heavens it always does. For instance, those first action sequences - oh my goodness. How do [they] do that?!"
On Fox's friendship with Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne, he added: "He's known him since forever. He didn't raise him though, Alfred raised him. Alfred's the father figure.
"I never thought of Lucius as a father figure, more like a benevolent uncle."
