It’s not often that you hear an actor talk candidly about their own film, but when it does happen, it’s always refreshing to see. Such is the case with Jeremy Irons, who recently spoke with the Daily Mail about Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which – as we all know – didn’t quite do as well as the studio had hoped it would.
According to the actor, the bashing that Zack Snyder’s superhero showdown received was deserved:
‘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 “next one” that Irons mentions is obviously Justice League: Part One, which is currently shooting in London but according to recent reports, things aren’t running too smoothly on set. Snyder is under heavy watch by the studio and as we keep hearing, they’re doing some serious shuffling around in order to ensure that they don’t have another disaster on their hands when the film is released.
We’re hopeful that the Caped Crusader’s next adventure will turn out alright, but it’s still way too early to tell how Justice League: Part One will do once it hits theatres. Besides, we’ve still got Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman to look forward to before we can even start thinking about Snyder’s next flick. Those two aforementioned films both look fantastic as well and despite the mess that was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, we’re optimistic that Warner Bros. will be able to get their DCEU back on track and give us a cinematic universe worthy of these iconic characters.
