Jeremy Irons says ‘Batman V Superman’ was ‘muddled’ ‘overstuffed,’ talks ‘Justice League’

Hard words of criticism for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice continues as star Jeremy Irons ragged on the Zack Snyder film and looked ahead with hope for Justice League.

During an interview with The Daily Mail, Irons acknowledged critics panning the film.

“Deservedly so. I mean it took £800 million, so the kicking didn’t matter but it was sort of overstuffed… It was very muddled.”

Justice League concept art Cyborg batman superman wonder woman, aquaman flashIrons’ Alfred Pennyworth was widely considered to be one of the best parts of Dawn of Justice and Irons believes the messiness that plagued Batman v Superman won’t be a problem with Justice League.

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

Ben Affleck as an executive producer on Justice League, Warner created a new DC Films division, and reduced producer Charles Roven‘s involvement in the franchise, although the effects of the last two decisions will be felt more in the films following Justice League.

Irons returns as Batman’s loyal butler Alfred in Justice League, which is currently shooting and opens November 17, 2017.
