Jeremy Irons Says THE BATMAN Starts Shooting Next Summer And Reflects On BATMAN v SUPERMAN Reviews

Justice League star Jeremy Irons talks here about Alfred's role in that and Ben Affleck's The Batman while also reflecting on those negative reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Earlier this month, Deathstroke actor Joe Manganiello revealed that he begins shooting The Batman in the spring, and in a new interview with Variety, it seems like Jeremy Irons has further confirmed that the movie will begin production within the next six to nine months. That came up when the trade asked him if he's going to have a more significant role as Alfred in the upcoming Justice League.

"Similar, but then, of course, Ben’s going to make a Batman film next summer," Irons said in regards to how his role in the superhero ensemble with compare to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. "He promises me there’s going to be a bit more of Alfred in that. In the Justice League we have seven major lead characters and I’m the butler to one of them. It’s clear I will not be dominating that film."
 
Irons previously indicated that Batman v Superman may have deserved the negative reviews it received back in March, but it seems like he's since changed his tune! When the trade quizzed him on whether he was upset by them, he replied: "Not at all. I was very pleased by the numbers. Zack seems to get a hard time from the press, which is strange. I don’t know if it has to do with the sort of secrecy that surrounds the making of it all. But the audience liked it, which in the end is all that matters."

Are you looking forward to seeing more of Alfred in the DC Films Universe moving forward?
