Jeremy Irons as Alfred in Batman v Supermanbatmanvsuperman/facebook

"Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" actor Jeremy Irons, who played Alfred in the movie, is probably one of the first cast members to agree with the film's negative reviews.

During his latest interview, Irons indicated that even though the reviews did not really hurt the movie's box office collections, the kicking it got from critics was "deservedly so."

"I mean it took £800 million, so the kicking didn't matter but it was sort of overstuffed," said the actor (via Daily Mail). "It was very muddled. I think the next one will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it's more linear." Irons then also added, "I'm tied into The Batman at the minute, which is nice because it's a bit of income."

Now it's unclear whether the "simpler, more linear" script that Irons mentioned, is of "The Batman" (the rumoured title of Ben Affleck's solo Batman film) or the upcoming Justice League film.

Meanwhile, on the subject of "The Justice League," Jesse Eisenberg (who played the villain Lex Luthor in "Batman v Superman") recently shared an update on his yet-to-be-confirmed role in the film.

"I'm kind of in wait," he revealed during an appearance at the MCM London Comic Con held over the weekend. "They just started filming Justice League, so I'm kind of like waiting for my crack at it. I don't know what I'm allowed to say, because I feel like there's probably some drone following me from DC, and if I say anything wrong I get, you know, picked off. But yeah I think so, and I love it, and I love everybody who's in it. You know, it's a really talented group of people." (via Digital Spy)

Eisenberg is also rumoured to appear in Warner Bros.' "Suicide Squad" later this year.
