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

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

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.

The Batman vs. Superman follow-up, Justice League, quietly began filming in London last week, and while there wasn’t a big splashy announcement, we do have a new and interesting bit of casting. In addition to all the many known cast members both returning — Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams — and new — J.K. Simmons, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller — there’s one more good guy joining the film: Willem Dafoe.

Bizarro Back Issues: The Justice League Against The Deadly Peril Of Board Games (1992)

Justice League America #61

Whenever people talk about the major eras of the Justice League, they tend to skip from the sitcom-inspired International era of Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire straight to the big action widescreen reboot of Grant Morrison and Howard Porter's JLA, and with good reason. Those were two hugely important and influential runs that helped to define what DC was for an era, and they're certainly worth talking about. The thing is, there was another era in there, too, and while it doesn't get talked about too much, it's every bit as tied into exactly what was driving the DCU: That stretch from 1992 to 1993, when Dan Jurgens rebuilt the Justice League around Superman.

To be fair, though, it's easy to see why it might not get the press that the other major runs receive. It's in this weird little middle ground between those two extremes, caught between snarky quips and world-shattering stories, never quite getting as memorable as either. Also, there's the thing where the new Justice League is almost murdered by a board game in their first adventure.

Batman vs. Superman opened to negative reviews and mixed word of mouth. All that could have been forgiven if it was a box-office juggernaut, but after an impressive opening weekend, Dawn of Justice is sinking like a stone...

‘The Flash’ Solo Movie May Team Ray Fisher’s Cyborg Up With Ezra Miller’s Speedy Hero

By now you’ve seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and if you haven’t, then you’re still probably well-aware of the Justice League cameos — they weren’t exactly kept secret, after all (Warner Bros. even spilled the details of The Flash’s cameo to EW weeks ago). In any case, it looks like we may see two of those characters team up in a film separate from the Justice League movies, as Batman v Superman producer Deborah Snyder reiterates that #NotAllDCMovies will have the same gritty tone.

Following the critical response to Batman v. Superman, some fans grew defensive and grew angry at those who spoke negatively about the film. Others took a completely different route: starting a petition to get director Zack Snyder fired.

There are a lot of fan petitions for a lot of dumb things. In January there was one to get Colin Trevorrow fired as the director of Star Wars: Episode 9. Then there was the one trying to get Deadpool to host SNL. Now comes the latest as a group of disappointed comic book fans have taken their voices online in an effort to get Snyder out of the DC Cinematic Universe.

Justice Dawns: The Best DC Trinity Fan Art Ever

Feature

Since their introductions at the birth of the age of superheroes, these three colossal champions of good have stood above countless contemporaries and inspired so many others, both in their fictional world and in ours. But more than that, they’ve also stood together and come to represent the very core of the DC Universe from which every other aspect of that world radiates. Who can truly say what it is that has both separated and united these three above all others, but I’d like to think it goes beyond just sales figures, and that the money part is just a happy bonus.

So as you ruminate on your thoughts and theories about the movie, or make your plans to go see it again, take a couple of minutes and enjoy this collection of some of the best Trinity fan art the internet has to offer.

Zack Snyder Confirms ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Easter Egg, Teases Cyborg’s Role in ‘Justice League’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just gets curiouser and curiouser. Earlier today, Warner Bros. released a totally bizarre (to say the least) deleted scene from the film, which appeared to incorporate a couple of crucial elements from the DC comic book universe. Although ultimately cut from the theatrical version, Zack Snyder confirms that at least one of those things appears elsewhere in the film — you may have spotted it during Cyborg’s cameo.
