Re: George Clooney as Batman/Bruce Wayne
Clooney has evolved so greatly as an actor since then that I would totally be game for him as a wiser, older Batman today.
Like Cain said, he was still in his bobblehead days, and of course the movie itself was a trainwreck. But his quiet scenes with Alfred are still as touching as can be within the confines of such a monumentally stupid film.
Wrong movie, wrong time. He was directed, like everyone, to treat it like a "cartoon." Given the right direction, he'd have been fine. And might have actually changed his voice between Bruce and Bats!
