I was like, ‘You’re like Dirty Harry from superheroes.’ I didn’t have to convince people that I was right for this the same way I did for Jungle Cruise. It’s like the things I’ve done with Liam. [Neeson], that tough antihero with a heart. The world is not black and white. The world is in gray areas, so you need these people who travel in that gray area. “
