Particular comments from an interview that Jeremy Irons did recently with The Daily Mail are surfacing, and they’re not so kind about his latest film, ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’.
While the general party line about the critically-decimated film is that ‘Okay, we thought it was okay but we’ll do better’, Irons instead referred to the film as ‘overstuffed’.
When asked about ‘the kicking’ his film received from critics, Irons said this:
“Deservedly so. 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.”
The actor is notorious for his outspokenness for sure, but his comments were definitely a surprise seeing as he’s yet to reprise his role as Alfred Pennyworth in ‘Justice League Part One’, due out next year.
“I’m tied into The Batman at the minute, which is nice because it’s a bit of income…
Not that I need a bit of income but it’s nice to keep ticking over.”
We’re sure it’s nice to keep ticking over and erasing certain traits of Batman’s entire persona too, as ‘BvS’ did, but we’ll just leave it there and hope for a ‘simpler, more linear’ story with ‘Justice League’, shall we?
