Jeremy Irons thinks ‘Batman v Superman’ deserved to get bad reviews

It’s not every day an actor speaks negatively about one of his movies (especially when he’s in the middle of shooting the sequel), but that’s exactly what Jeremy Irons did in a new interview with Daily Mail’s Event magazine.

When the fact that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice “took a kicking” from the critics was brought up, Irons said that he thought it was deserved!

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

He lets those words hang in the air, then laughs at the thought of a film described by one critic as the most incoherent blockbuster in years.

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

“The next one” that Irons is referring to is Justice League: Part One, which he confirmed he has a part in and is currently filming in London.

What do you make of Irons’ honesty? Are you happy to hear that Justice League’s story will be a bit simpler? Let me know in the comments below.
