Veteran actor George Clooney is well aware that his portrayal of Batman in Batman & Robin isn’t well-liked by many fans, but he’s also been known to use the film’s bad reputation as a way to have fun. Released in 1997, Batman & Robin featured Clooney as Batman alongside Chris O’Donnell as Robin, Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze. From cheesy one-liners to Clooney’s Batsuit nipples, the film has drawn heavy criticism over the years.
Recently, Clooney attended the Royal Film and Television Production Magnet, a high school specializing in film and television production aimed at helping aspiring filmmakers get into show business. He commented on the Batman situation, joking that Ben Affleck’s version, who will return in The Flash and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, is inferior to the Batman & Robin incarnation. Per THR, here’s what the actor had to say.
“When you look at actors, you don’t really think about education, in general. I mean, you look at me, you just think, ‘Oh, he’s just the best Batman!’ Oh, I know what you’re thinking… Ben Affleck, really? He has nothing against me! »
George Clooney’s Batman Will Probably Never Return
The Flash will bring the multiverse to allow different versions of Batman to appear in a movie. This means Ben Affleck’s Batman will join Michael Keaton’s Batman in the film. It’s theoretically possible that other Batman actors will also make appearances, in this film or elsewhere in the DCEU, given that the door is now wide open for that to happen. But don’t count on Clooney’s Batman return, as the actor has been more open about his regrets for facing Batman & Robin in the past.
“They didn’t ask me,” Clooney previously said of his possible involvement in The Flash. “When you destroy a franchise like I did, they usually look the other way when The Flash passes by. »
Meanwhile, Ben Affleck says it’s possible Clooney filmed a secret cameo for the movie, but he doesn’t see it as very likely.
“I don’t believe he is [in the movie] Said Affleck on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “If he is, he hasn’t told me, so maybe he thinks I’d blow him. It’s possible. He can be very careful. As far as I know he didn’t want to go back to that ear height, but I don’t believe he’s in The Flash. But I haven’t even seen Michael Keaton. »
