George Clooney is a pretty great movie star who also happened to be a pretty bad Batman.
“Batman is still the biggest break I ever had and it completely changed my career, even if it was weak and I was weak in it,” Clooney told Total Film in a 2011 interview. “
“It was a difficult film to be good in. I don’t know what I could have done differently.”
With that kind of perspective on things, did Clooney offer Ben Affleck — Clooney’s producer partner on the Best Picture-winning “Argo” — any advice about taking the Batman role in “Man of Steel 2”?
“I am the least qualified person to comment on anyone playing the role of Batman since I so terribly destroyed the part,”
Despite that, Clooney did provide some comment to those Batman fans who were so enraged by Affleck’s casting in the first place.
“I tend to look at it like this — let’s just see what the movie is before everyone starts beating him up,”
“He is a smart man, he knows what he is doing.”
Clooney’s comments echo Matt Damon’s words of support from back in August, when the Batfleck controversy was still quite fresh.
Affleck will play Batman in Warner Bros.’ “Man of Steel” sequel. The film is due out in theaters on July 17, 2015.
