Alfred Actor Says ‘Batman v Superman’ Deserved Its Bad Reviews

“I mean it took $800m, so the kicking didn’t matter but it was sort of overstuffed.”

[dropcap size=small]H[/dropcap]as Alfred betrayed Batman? Certainly not, but you can be sure that Ben Affleck isn’t happy that Jeremy Irons agrees with the critics reviews of DC Comics and Warner Bros’ Batman v Superman. The British actor said the movie received negative reviews “deservedly so” and he is “tied into Batman at the minute, which is nice because it’s a bit of income.”


While it isn’t completely unheard of for a starring actor to agree with scathing negative reviews, Jeremy Irons has made a reputation for himself as an actor who isn’t afraid to speak his mind and doesn’t care if he is going to get in trouble for it. That being said, the British actor did have a slightly positive thing to say about his next DC movie. 

“I think [it] will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear.”

Taking into account how jumbled and muddled Batman v Superman was, it is good to hear that Justice League: Part One will (hopefully) not follow the same steps as its first predecessor.

Justice League: Part One will hit theaters on November 17th, 2017.




Probably one of the biggest fans of Doctor Who you'll ever meet.
