Cillian Murphy uncertain about returning for ‘Tron 3’ talks Nolan’s Batman films

During an interview with MTV, (in addition to talking about Dark Knight Rises) actor Cillian Murphy touched on his role in the 2010 film, Tron: Legacy, and the possibility of a sequel. More below the photo.

For those who do not know, Murphy played an extremely small role as Edward Dillinger Jr., son of Tron‘s Ed Dillinger Sr.

“Talk about being in a movie for a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ [role],” Murphy laughed when his Legacy cameo was brought up.

“I was just such a fan of the original, and they asked me if I wanted to be in it. I said, ‘Absolutely. Anything you want.’ ”

On whether he will appear in a sequel: “I don’t know,” he said. “It was just a buzz to be in that movie, even for [one scene].”

Onto The Dark Knight Rises: “I’m looking forward to it,” the actor told MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival, where he’s promoting his paranormal thriller Red Lights from director Rodrigo Cortes.

“Any film that Chris Nolan makes … he’s got a good track record. He makes amazing movies.”

Murphy co-starred in Batman Begins as the Scarecrow, getting a short cameo in the early part of Dark Knight and will have one scene to play in Rises. The 28 Days Later star also worked on Nolan’s Inception.

“It’s been a huge honor to work with him,” Murphy added. “He’s just phenomenal.”
