Jeremy Irons hasn’t made the rounds to watch Zack Snyder’s Justice League just yet — but he’s made his feelings clear on the theatrical version.

While Justice League was under production, director Snyder turned away due to a personal tragedy, and The Avengers assistant Joss Whedon re-shot, which drastically changed the tone and plot of the film. After a lengthy fan campaign, the Snyder Cut was finally released in March 2021, with Irons once again playing Batman’s trusted butler Alfred Pennyworth.

“Weirdly, I think I have it and I haven’t seen it,” Irons told Diversity, “I’ll have to find it out and see if I have it somewhere online or on DVD. I remember talking to Jack before he used to do it and was very interested to see what he came up with . It couldn’t have been worse.”


In response to a follow-up question about whether Irons meant the Snyder Cut couldn’t be worse than Justice League, the actor replied: “I don’t think it could have been, did I?” Then, when the Variety interviewer said he thought the theatrical film was “terrible,” Irons agreed: “Well, I did too.”

He isn’t the only actor from Justice League to comment on the film recently. Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in the film, recently said: “It was just the worst experience. It was horrible. It was everything I didn’t like about it. That became the moment where I said, ‘I’m not doing it anymore.’ It’s not even about, like, Justice League was so bad. Because it could have been anything.”
