Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) has recently done an interview where he discusses his role in “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” (already out in the UK, in limited release in the US), as well as how it differs from playing a character in a large franchise like “Batman” or “Harry Potter”:

You must know how to deal with the wolves”you’ve done a lot of these iconic characters from famous franchises, like Batman.

But you felt with Batman the fans had felt betrayed because it was
going off the rails and Chris really resuscitated it. So the fans were
in that respect behind us. But yeah, I’ve done a few”Batman, and you’ve got it with Harry Potter as well.

Does it change the job, playing characters with all those preconceptions behind them?

No, you can’t fill your head with that, otherwise you wouldn’t get
out of the starting gate. It would paralyze you. You just hope that the
people will go and receive it.
