George Clooney Playing Batman Again

George Clooney Playing Batman Again: Way back in January, new DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn was quoted as saying The Flash would “reset” the DC Extended Universe, setting the stage for the new DCU. “Everything from [Superman: Legacy] forward will be canon and will be connected,” the filmmaker was quoted as saying.

“We’re using some actors from the past. We’re not using other actors from the past, but everything from that moment will be connected and consistent.”

This statement says whatever movies we will see in future, it will be totally rebooted “no connection with the past movies.” We will see the characters like Superman, Batman play by different actors. DC confirms the upcoming movies of Superman & Batman, Superman: Legacy and Batman: The Brave and The Bold.

After DC Studios confirmed that a new Batman project is under making, several speculations regarding its star cast have been doing the rounds. After senior actor George Clooney made a comeback to the DC Universe with the recently released film The Flash, it was rumored that he might play Batman once again in the upcoming project, which has been titled The Brave and The Bold. After DC Studios confirmed that The Flash director Andy Muschietti is helming the project, the fans started believing that Clooney is indeed back, to play Batman.

However, in a recent interaction with his fans on the social media platform Threads, James Gunn put rumours to rest and confirmed that George Clooney is not a part of Batman: The Brave and The Bold. “James, can you confirm whether or not George Clooney is the DCU Batman? Loved the cameo in The Flash, but some people seem confused about who’s gonna be Batman in your DCU,” asked a fan, during his chat with Gunn. However, the director replied: “He is not,” confirming that the senior actor is not a part of the film. That means James has some other actor in his mind.
