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.
