George Clooney admits he completely screwed up playing Batman in 1997’s Batman & Robin

George Clooney is reflecting once again on his failed turn as the iconic superhero Batman in the 1997 movie Batman & Robin.

The 60-year-old actor and filmmaker spoke at a Q&A after a screening of his new directorial effort The Tender Bar where he was asked about acting in big-budget blockbuster movies.

‘I did one superhero movie and I f––ed it up so bad they won’t let me near the set,’ Clooney said during the Q&A (via People).

Clooney followed Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer playing Batman on the big screen, though Batman & Robin was a critical and commercial failure which effectively halted the franchise for several years.
