In his first ever podcast appearance on Awards Chatter, George Clooney said he warned Ben Affleck against playing Batman on the big screen.
“I actually did talk to him about it. I said, ‘Don’t do it.'”
Clooney played Batman in 1997’s Batman and Robin, directed by Joel Schumacher. Meanwhile Affleck portrayed the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League before leaving the role earlier this year.
