Russell Brand Plays Batman in New ‘Arthur’ Clips

We haven’t yet seen what Russell Brand has done to this remake of a classic comedy, but now we’ve got a little more of an idea. These clips from Brand’s Arthur, also starring Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, and the-oh-so-conspicuously-missing-from-marketing-materials Greta Gerwig are cute and entertaining but even Brand’s humor is a bit muted, which is WEIRD because he’s the type of actor who never, ever shuts up. Watch a few minutes of Brand being, dare I say it, adorable and keeping his comedic babbling to a minimum. Come on folks, they needed to keep to a PG-13 rating, they couldn’t let him be too much himself.
