‘Justice League’ Movie: Alfred Actor Quits? Hates ‘Batman vs Superman’

‘Justice League’ Movie: Alfred Actor Quits? Hates ‘Batman vs Superman’



Will Alfred be absent from the upcoming “Justice League” movies? Does Jeremy Irons, the actor who plays Batman’s trusty butler, really want out? Did he really quit because of the bad reviews “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” earlier received?

According to Collider, the actor did say “Batman v. Superman” deserved its bad reviews. “It was sort of overstuffed,” Irons was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying. “It was very muddled.” However, the Oscar-winning actor has no plans of abandoning his next projects with DC. “I think the next one will be simpler,” he said. “The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear.”

It was also earlier reported that he will get a bigger role in the solo “Batman” movie. “Justice League: Part 1” is set to be released on November 16, 2017. The movie’s second part, on the other hand, will not hit the big screen until two years after. “Part 2” will hit theatres on June 14, 2019.

Meanwhile, Irons recently explained why he refused the British knighthood. “I just didn’t fit in,” the actor explained. “It wasn’t that I didn’t have the manners – there’s a sort of unspoken code among people in that world, which I want to kick at, I want to hit … I don’t see the point of it,” he added. “There are so many people who do amazing work which is unheralded and unrecognised. I do what I do because I like doing it. I’m well paid for it. I get far too much adulation compared with what it’s worth.”

Irons also discussed his semi-retirement. “Really, ambition has gone,” he said. “I look for things that tickle my fancy. You begin to see the end of life on the horizon. You think, ‘It’s not going on forever, this. Let’s make the most of what time I have left.'”

    i loved what Chris Nolan did with batman, however this new movie, I have no idea who dropped the ball, but it made me feel sick during the bulk of the film. I used to love watching and rewatching anything with the Dark Knight. Here is a top, first of all Ben should be booted, the guy needs acting classes. Second, get Chris Nolan back or someone who has an eye for this level of a picture.
