We have known for some time now that in the highly anticipated The Flash we will review Batman iterations by both Michael Keaton that of Ben Affleck, who played the iconic character respectively in Batman (1989) and Batman – The Return (1992), both directed by Tim Burton, and in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017), both directed by Zack Sndyer.
This will be possible thanks to the exploration of the Multiverse, but those who expect to see other cinematic incarnations of the hooded hero may be disappointed. On the occasion of the premiere of his latest film as a director, The Tender Bar, George Clooney, who played the Gotham Crusader in Batman & Robin in 1997, he confirmed that he will not appear in Andy Muschietti’s cinecomic.
Interviewed by Variety, the actor motivated his absence from the film by explaining that he was simply not asked to participate. The Oscar-winning actor also joked about ruining the franchise through his portrayal of Bruce Wayne and the infamous Bat-nipples. “They didn’t ask me”, Clooney specified. “When you destroy a franchise like I did, they usually tend to look forward. I had great nipples. “
The funny thing is, last year, it was just right George Clooney to reveal that at the time of the casting of Ben Affleck in the role of Batman, he advised his friend and colleague (star of his new film as director, the aforementioned The Tender Bar) not to accept the part. “I think people seek me out for advice based on my experience. I mean: I took part in a huge flop but I also had a lot of successes. It doesn’t necessarily mean that people listen to you “, he had revealed. “Ben, for example, didn’t listen to me and eventually took the part. It is clear that I was wrong, because he did a great job. All I can do is give advice based on my experience. “
