Jeremy Irons Says the Batman Movie Begins… by filmjunkee
When is this Batman movie beginning production?! We have Ben Affleck saying there’s no set date because the script is still being work. We have Mr. Deathstroke, Joe Manganiello, saying production starts in Spring. Now we got Alfred, Jeremy Irons, saying something about Summer to Variety while talking about his role in Justice League.
Similar, but then, of course, Ben’s going to make a Batman film next summer. 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.
He then talked about the negative reviews for Batman v Superman.
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.
