Even Alfred Is Piling On BvS Posted by: Bill "Jett" Ramey (@BATMANONFILM)

Sorry, but he speaks the TRUTH.
Here’s what Jeremy Irons had to say about BATMAN v SUPERMAN being bashed by critics and its lukewarm – at best – reception by the mainstream and fans (via an interview with the DAILY MAIL)...
"Deservedly so. I mean it [made over $800 million worldwide], so the kicking didn’t matter, but it was sort of overstuffed."
"It was very muddled. I think the next one will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear."
As Mr. Irons’ is a well-respected and legendary actor, I take what he says about BvS seriously. It’s not as if he’s happy that it sucked – especially as he’s tied to the DCEU for both JUSTICE LEAGUE films and the solo Batman film.
I agree with his take on BvS totally and I hope "the next one" -- JUSTICE LEAGUE, PART 1 -- isn't has "muddled" as BvS.
