Here's what George Clooney Learned After Batman & Robin Bombed

1997's Batman & Robin, which was director Joel Schumacher's second Bat-flick and star George Clooney's first (and only) at-bat playing Bats, was a box office bust that killed off Warner Bros.' first Bat-franchise, ending the run that began with Tim Burton's Batman in 1989. Recently, George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer, who both starred together in 1996's One Fine Day, appeared together for Variety's Actors on Actors, and during the chat Clooney told Pfeiffer, who herself was in Batman Returns from the same franchise, what he'd learned from being in such an expensive flop. Clooney, who's insisted for many years that his performance was also a big part of the movie's failure, even going so far as to tell Ben Affleck not to play Batman when he was first offered the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, decided to go forward focusing on entire projects and not just his role in them. "After Batman & Robin came out, and it was a big bomb - you learn from your failures; you don’t learn from successes," he said.
