Hear Me Out - George Clooney Should Be The Next Batman... Again

CB

From the minute it was announced on stage in Hall H that Man of Steel 2 essentially would be a Superman-Batman team-up movie, the Internet has been vibrating with conversation about who should step into the Caped Crusader’s legendary costume for the sure-to-be-massive sequel. The immediate thought process would be that the movie would connect back to Christopher Nolan’s existing Batman universe, perhaps giving Warner Bros. the chance to offer Christian Bale Downey-Jr. levels of cash to reprise his role as the not-deceased Bruce Wayne, coming out of “retirement” to investigate this strange alien who has landed on our planet (and caused millions of dollars of destruction in neighboring Metropolis). (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Culture, George Clooney)

no because george clooney is to old.
alycakes  +   586d ago
I like George but I never liked him as Batman...he never really fit the part as far as I was concerned. I really love his other movies and whether they are serious or fun ones...it's just one of those things....

Id rather have Nicholas Cage as Batman and thats saying a lot...
Crazay  +   587d ago
HAHAHAH!

I can't get behind that at all. LOL

Nick Cage almost landed a Superman role, which would have been excellent. Man of Steel probably still would have sucked though. It's just Superman getting the hi-tech, dark and brooding "Dark Knight" treatment, just like Spiderman did with the Amazing Spiderman. Annoying trend.
RedHawkX  +   586d ago
man of steel was good best action scenes of any superman and greenlantern film. also many powerful emotional moments and a lot more details and backstoy on superman the character and the home world which most people didnt even know about from any of the past movies. also the law and order guy is beast.

George Clooney is a great actor, and despite the screw up that was Batman & Robin, I believe if he was given the right script and direction, he could pull off a brutal, angsty Batman not unlike Bale, something reminiscent of Bruce from Batman Beyond.
Crazay  +   587d ago
I'm in the same boat as you here. I thought he was a great choice when it happened way back when. The movie was laughably craptacular though.
Anthotis  +   587d ago
I agree.

Could be the greatest troll job ever.

He's a solid actor and he was okay as Bruce Wayne. His problem is more of the Batman movie he was involved with and with that connection, they'll never take him.
Leio  +   587d ago
Solid actor or not no serious actor would pick up the Batman role he chose, he should be thanking god that role didnt destroy his carrier let alone doing it again.

i dont think that will happen, even george clooney wont risk his already established career into a mockery once again. if this happens, it will be a very unpopular choice.
Hergula  +   587d ago
Okay... that's it!

can we blame him, the movie was crap, it was comical at best, he played the role they gave, which was horrible at best
coolbeans  +   586d ago
He ruined his chance at that the first time he gave his Batman intro:

"Hello, Freeze. I'm Batman"

*Brontosaurus slide* (YABBA-DABBA-DO!)

The Schumacher Batman movies are criminally underrated. That's what Batman's SUPPOSED to be like - camp and wacky, not dark and brooding like that Nolan tripe.

The original comics were wacky, so was the Adam West TV show. Only when man-children trying to conceal their juvenility decided to "maturate" Batman did the brand start becoming "dark". Which it never was. The idea is intrinsically silly, it's impossible to take the Nolan films seriously, not to mention impossible to like owing to how much of his conservative agenda slips into them.

If you were reading the "wacky comics" then you weren't reading the originals at all.

It was only in the 50's with the Joker did they turn it to the goofy camp version you speak of because his character was far too sinister.

They still never took themselves nearly as seriously as the Nolan Films and the later comics did.

"The Schumacher Batman movies are criminally underrated. That's what Batman's SUPPOSED to be like - camp and wacky, not dark and brooding like that Nolan tripe."

There have been a few different looks of Batman, some being particularly dark, before Nolan's "tripe" ever released. From Burton to Nolan, each had a different aim in what THEY saw Batman to be.

Although I enjoyed Batman Forever, Batman & Robin is an atrocity that simply didn't work (the plot progression was just nonsense so often, it felt aimless in tone, etc etc).

I came here simply in hopes that the author will take my advice and punch himself in the face repeatedly until knocked unconscious, your opinion is no longer needed in this conversation. I mean if George Clooney gets Batman again why not make Justin Bieber Superman and throw some Predators into the movie wearing pink swimsuits and tackling tax reform.

Go on...

I think the role should be given to either Colin Farrell or Richard Armitage.
