When The Flash hits theaters next year, it’ll end up featuring two different actors who’ve played Batman in their careers. One of those actors doesn’t happen to be George Clooney, who admits he wasn’t asked to appear in the feature after joking he had “destroyed” the franchise with his previous performance.
While appearing at an advanced screening of his upcoming film The Tender Bar, Clooney admitted to Variety that Warner Brothers simply didn’t ask him to return.
“They didn’t ask me,” Clooney told the trade. “When you destroy a franchise the way I did, usually they look the other way when ‘The Flash’ comes by.”
