Despite the DCU set to enter a new era, multiple rumors have suggested the comic book franchise may bring back George Clooney as the new DCU’s Batman in The Brave and the Bold. James Gunn, as he does, has taken to Twitter to respond to these rumors.The DC universe has seen its fair share of actors take on the cape and cowl over the years Phish Riviera Maya Moon Palace Cancun Mexico Feb 23 2023 Shirt The trailer for The Flash just debuted during the Super Bowl and it features both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton’s Bruce Wayne returning to the big screen. DC loves to honor its history by bringing back iconic faces, so is George Clooney returning for The Flash?George Clooney took on the role of the Dark Knight in just one film, 1997’s Batman & Robin. The film has largely been considered one of the worst Batman films, with only a 12% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It would be surprising for Clooney to return to his superhero role after such a critical reception, but that’s exactly what the DC rumor mill is saying.

The rumors of George Clooney’s possible DC return began when entertainment insider Grace Randolph tweeted that a “former Batman” will cameo at the end of The Flash and could possibly become “the new permanent DCU Batman”:”I hear that it’s going to be a former Batman who cameos at the end of The Flash & could potentially stick around as the new permanent DCU Batman. Damian’s Dad, Pattinson is still solo Phish Riviera Maya Moon Palace Cancun Mexico Feb 23 2023 Shirt I know who it is; but it would be uncool to reveal the whole thing.”Randolph’s post was accompanied by a picture of three different Batmen, including Christian Bale, Val Kilmer and George Clooney, suggesting the cameo will be one of those three actors.Batman-on-Film’s EIC Bill “Jett” Ramey then addressed fan questions in his mailbag and shared that he thinks the DCU’s upcoming The Brave and the Bold will have an even “older take” on Batman. Jett guessed the actor would be “late 50s” in order to differentiate from Robert Pattinson’s current version of the character:”I think they are going for an older take on Batman — older than he was in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ (pushing 40) and ‘Batman v Superman’ (pushing 50). Late 50s is my guess. Why? Because they want to have a very different version of Batman in the DCU than the one in Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’ films as played by Robert Pattinson. And since the Batman Family already exists, Bruce is obviously going to be older — which is fine by me.”Jett said he would provide more hints on his social media and then later posted a tweet with an image of Clooney as Batman and Chris O’Donnell as Robin from Batman & Robin.
