Laurence Fishburne Impersonates Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Mr. Freeze Batman

For all the grief the cast of 1997’s George Clooney-led “Batman and Robin” have been given, Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s pun-loving Mr. Freeze has a fan in Lawrence Fishburne.

Fishburne waxed nostalgic on Arnie’s villain during an interview for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,”  and delivered a spot-on impersonation.

“Arnold’s Mr. Freeze was great,” he explained. Mimicking Arnie, he said in the action star’s unmistakable accent, “The name is Freeze, remember it, for it’s the sound of your doom!” Laughing, he added, “He was wonderful as Mr. Freeze.”

It’s too bad then that cool Mr. Freeze Batman villain doesn’t make an appearance in Fisburne’s superhero mashup flick “Dawn of Justice.” As the editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet, Perry White, Fishburne plays Clark Kent (Superman, Henry Cavill) and Lois Lane’s (Amy Adams) boss.

Some highlights from his Made in Hollywood interview:

On his favorite Batman actor…
“Because of my age, Adam West is my favorite Batman. I was 6 years old—7 years old. There’s nothing that dulls that for me.”

On which Batman movie he would like to be in…
I would want to be in that original one with Adam West (Batman), Burgess Meredith (The Penguin), Cesar Romero (The Joker) and Frank Gorshin (The Riddler) and I would play The Riddler—that’s who I want to play. If I could go back to that original Batman television movie (1966), I would want to play The Riddler.

On why he dressed as Superman instead of Batman on Halloween…
“Because I started working on ‘Man of Steel.’ When my wife and daughter found out I was doing it, they sent me a bouquet and said I was their Superman.”

The Zack Snyder-directed movie, which also stars Gal Gadot, Holly Hunter, Jeremy Irons and Diane Lane, hits theaters on Friday.
