Legendary actor Jeremy Irons certainly did not hide his true feelings for Joss Whedon’s Justice League then the topic in a new interview with Variety, which was mainly to discuss his new movie Munich: The Edge of War. As the course is when it comes to any actor who has appeared in a Marvel or DC movie, the topic of his entry into the world of comic book movies came up when he was asked if he was the Zack Snyder version of Justice League yet, to which the actor responded with frank honesty about his feelings for the original 2017 version of the superhero mashup.
Irons played Alfred Pennyworth for a second time Justice League, who repeats his role as Bruce Wayne’s confidant and butler in which he first played Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the actor, as with any star of a current movie, did not say anything condescending about movie with its release, it is now clearer that he does not really care about it at all and although he did admit that he has not seen it yet not. Zack Snyder’s far from perfect cut of the movie, he plans to watch it sometime.
“Oddly enough, I think I have it and I have not seen it,” Irons muttered when asked if he had looked The Snyder Cut. “I will have to look for it and see if I have it somewhere online or on a DVD. I remember talking to Zack [Snyder] before he did so and was very interested to see what he came up with. It could not have been worse. ” Asked if he meant it could not be worse than the original movie, he added, “I do not think it could have been, could it?” When the interviewer said they thought Whedon’s version was awful, Irons simply concluded, “Well, I did too.”
Justice League was given a chance at redemption with the Snyder cut.
Like Jeremy Irons, many people had problems with the 2017 release of Justice League, even before many stories of Joss Whedon’s attitude on the set became known and actors like Ben Affleck called the filming of the movie in public the worst time they’ve ever had on a movie set. With Warner Bros. and DC who want to catch up with Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, which by 2017 was just two years away from the biggest comic book movie ever brought to the big screen. Avengers: Endgame, Justice League tried to bring DC’s iconic heroes together too quickly and eventually failed, mainly due to unfortunate events that pulled Zack Snyder out of the original filming and the film that was taken over and exhausted by Whedon.
Although we may not discover what Irons thinks about Snyder’s very extensive version of the movie, but his lack of love for the original version is not surprising, because over the past few years, everyone from cast and team to audiences and critics have film torn, and with Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher and most recently Affleck describing Whedon’s unprofessional behavior on set, it’s unlikely the movie’s reputation will ever improve.
Jeremy Irons hints that his Alfred Pennyworth character will be much more present in The Batman than he will be in Justice League.
