George Clooney says there are not ‘enough drugs in the world’ to get him to play Batman again

  • George Clooney told Entertainment Tonight that he won’t play Batman again.
  • Clooney reprised his role from “Batman & Robin” earlier this year in “The Flash.”
  • “I don’t think there are enough drugs in the world for me to go back again,” Clooney said.

George Clooney is not interested in playing Batman again.

The actor told Entertainment Tonight that there are not “enough drugs in the world” to get him to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne after appearing in a cameo in “The Flash” earlier this year.

Clooney first played the superhero in the 1997 movie “Batman & Robin,” which was universally panned.

Asked if he would take on the hero again, Clooney told ET last week: “I don’t think there are enough drugs in the world for me to go back again.”

Clooney joked that he made an appearance in “The Flash” because fans were asking for him to return as Batman.

“I thought there was such a clamor for me to come back as Batman as you know,” Clooney said. “I actually said, ‘Where are my rubber nipples?’ And they were like, ‘Can we do it without the rubber nipples?'”

Clooney continued: “I was like, ‘Well, it’s not really my Batman, is it?'”

looney’s Batman infamously had nipples on his Batsuit in “Batman & Robin.”

Clooney has been critical of the movie, which also starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Uma Thurman, in the years since it was released.

In 2013, he told Deadline that he keeps a photo of himself as Batman in his office “as a cautionary reminder of what can happen when you make movies solely for commercial reasons.”

At New York Comic Con in 2014, Clooney apologized to fans for Batman’s infamous nipples, and the movie’s bad puns.

In 2020, Clooney told Empire that he wasn’t going to be in “The Flash,” which also saw Michael Keaton reprise his incarnation of Batman. Keaton first played Batman/Bruce Wayne in 1989’s “Batman” and 1992’s “Batman Returns.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Clooney’s scene in “The Flash” was a last-minute change that was filmed six months before the movie’s release.
