Jeremy Irons isn’t one of those actors that’s going to say what you want to hear…unless you didn’t particularly like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and what you want to hear is that he agrees with you. Zack Snyder’s ambitious superhero project failed to impress critics and inspired a wave of negative reviews — all of which Jeremy Irons believes the film rightfully deserved. And he was in it, so he should know.

Jesse Eisenberg’s wildly eccentric portrayal of Lex Luthor was certainly one of the more divisive elements of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but whether you loved or hated his take on the iconic Superman villain, you have to admit that the movie was never boring when he was on screen. And it looks like he’s not going anywhere anytime soon, as Eisenberg has confirmed that Lex Luthor will appear in Justice League — or at least Part One, anyway.

We’ve seen more than one character take up the Robin mantle in various Batman comics, shows and films throughout the years — which makes the identity of the dearly departed Boy Wonder in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice somewhat intriguing. There are a couple of likely possibilities, each of them with their own plot implications, and while there’s been a fair amount of speculation, the big Robin question may have just been answered.

In another bit of news that lends credence to the rumors of tension between Zack Snyder and Warner Bros., Ben Affleck has been officially promoted from mere Batman to Executive Producer-Man on Justice League.

When something goes wrong, we often revisit and analyze the past to find warning signs that were previously overlooked. If you apply that logic to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel, for instance, then you could find yourself reading...

‘Justice League’ Recruits Jeremy Irons’ Alfred to Keep Batman in Line

One of the better — and perhaps somewhat undervalued — parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was Jeremy Irons’ portrayal of Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s longtime advisor / caretaker / BFF. Although it wasn’t directly referenced on screen, the official companion book for Zack Snyder’s film reveals that this iteration of Alfred is much more than a butler — he’s a former special services operative with a wealth of knowledge and combat skills. We may get to see Alfred’s talents on display sooner rather than later, as Irons is officially returning for Justice League.

Despite Ben Affleck’s solid turn as the caped crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, some fans took issue with one particular aspect of this new Batman: he kills. It’s not entirely out of character for the iconic superhero (he’s killed people in the comic books before), but the movie and TV versions of the Dark Knight don’t typically murder bad guys. It’s part of that whole “hero” thing, you know? If you were one of the fans disappointed with Zack Snyder’s decision to have Batman kill some thugs, then boy do we have some news for you.

The number 43 has held many different significances over the years. The newest significance of the number will surely eclipse any previous, however: heretofore, the number 43 shall be known as the exact number of lines of dialogue spoken by Henry...
