Jeremy Irons admits to Batman v Superman being ‘muddled’ and ‘overstuffed’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice received bad reviews from critics and mixed reactions from moviegoers. The film still made a lot of money, but the potential could have been greater if the movie was better. When an actor or director trashes their own movie, it can be seen as inappropriate; for example, Josh Trank trashing Fantastic Four. Now we have Jeremy Irons, who played Alfred in the film, coming out to say that the film deserved all the bad reviews. That’s pretty honest of him, especially since he’s going to return as Alfred in Justice League with director Zack Snyder at the helm again. However, he didn’t blame the studio like Trank did and has hope for the next film.

“Deservedly so,” he tells Daily Mail. “I mean it took £800 million, so the kicking didn’t matter but it was sort of overstuffed…It was very muddled. I think the next one will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear.”

Let’s see if this “next one” (Justice League: Part One) will be able to change things for Warner Bros after Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. The studio has been shifting things around behind the scenes including promoting Ben Affleck to executive producer status and giving Geoff Johns a bigger role in the DC Extended Universe.

Justice League: Part One hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
