Legendary actor Jeremy Irons certainly wasn’t hiding his true feelings for Joss Whedon Justice League when the topic was brought up in a new interview with Variety, which was primarily aimed at discussing his new movie Munich: the brink of war. As is the case with any actor who has appeared in a Marvel or DC movie, the subject of his foray into the world of comic book movies came up when asked if he had seen 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 the second time in Justice League, reprising his role as Bruce Wayne’s confidant and butler in which he first played Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the actor, like any star of a current movie, didn’t say anything derogatory about the film when it was released, it’s clearer now that he doesn’t really care at all and well. that he confessed that he had yet to see Zack Snyder is far from a perfect cut from the movie, he plans to watch it at some point.

Much like Jeremy Irons, many people had issues with the 2017 version of Justice League, even before many stories about Joss Whedon’s attitude on set became well known and actors like Ben Affleck publicly called the set of the film the worst time they’ve ever had on set. . With Warner Bros. and DC wanting to catch up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which in 2017 was only two years from the biggest comic book movie to ever hit the big screen in Avengers: Endgame, Justice League attempted to bring together iconic DC heroes too quickly and ultimately failed mainly due to unfortunate events that removed Zack Snyder from the original shoot and the film picked up and gutted by Whedon.

While we might not find out what Irons thinks of Snyder’s very extended film version, but his lack of love for the original version is not surprising as over the past few years everyone, cast and crew to audiences and critics alike, got torn apart in the film, and with Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher and more recently Affleck portraying Whedon’s unprofessional behavior on set, the reputation of the movie gets better one day.
