One person who hasn’t had much to say about the Ben Affleck as Batman casting is former Batman himself George Clooney.
In the past, Clooney has often beaten himself up about his own work in 1997’s “Batman and Robin,” putting much of the blame on himself even though he’s actually amongst the least of the film’s problems.
Clooeny, who worked with Affleck recently on “Argo,” was asked about Affleck’s casting by Empire to which he said:
“I am the least qualified person to comment on anyone playing the role of Batman since I so terribly destroyed the part. I tend to look at it like this – let’s just see what the movie is before everyone starts beating him up. He is a smart man, he knows what he is doing.”
