George Clooney Looks Back At Playing Batman In The Past
For all those who still don’t know, George Clooney once played Batman on the big screen. To cut the suspense for you, the movie was terrible and even Clooney wasn’t great in it. It is not a secret and Clooney acknowledges the fact that he was not the right fit to play a character like Batman. In a recent QnA session, Clooney talked about playing Batman and said, “I did one superhero movie and I f––ed it up so bad they won’t let me near the set.”
How Batman Changes Clooney’s Film Choices
Clooney has said in the past that the failure of Batman made him more choosy about his films. He became more careful about saying yes to movies and that is the reason why the next three movies after Batman were big hits for him. In 2019, he said, “I wasn’t good in it, it wasn’t a good film. What I learned from that failure was that I had to relearn how I was working. Now, I wasn’t just an actor getting a role, I was being held responsible for the film itself.” Clooney has since then established himself as one of the most bankable actors in Hollywood.
