George Clooney might have become a superstar after first appearing on TV's ER. He has won many awards and also turned a director. His recent sci-fi Disney film, 'Tomorrowland' just released and is getting rave reviews plus box office collections.
Clooney might be proud of many of his award winning films but not Joel Schumacher's 'Batman & Robin'! George Clooney was on "The Graham Norton Show" to talk about his latest movie "Tomorrowland" along with the cast, where the 54-year-old American star apologised yet again for 'Batman and Robin' saying he had destroyed the franchise.
"I did 'Batman & Robin'...which was a disaster. Other than that, there's never been a reason for me to go to Comic-Con," Clooney told Grahan Norton.
When the host pointed out that Clooney had apologized before for the critically-panned movie, Clooney replied in front of his Tomorrowland's cast, "I always apologise for 'Batman & Robin'. Let me just say that I actually thought I destroyed the franchise, ya know, until they brought it back and changed it."
While most actors would gain more prominence after taking a superhero role, Clooney thought he made a bad career move by playing the Caped Crusader in the 1997 movie. "I thought at the time, this was going to be a good career move. Um, it wasn't," he added.
Clooney went on talking about wearing the heavy suit and drew laughs when mimicking director Joel Schumacher, who directed "Batman & Robin".
