Actor and filmmaker George Clooney has joked about what it would take for him to return to the role of Batman following his brief cameo in “The Flash” this past Summer.

The actor played Bruce Wayne/Batman in Joel Schumacher’s widely despised 1997 film “Batman and Robin,” a film so bad even Clooney himself has previously admitted on British television that it nearly destroyed the franchise.

Clooney reprised the role, sans the suit, for the closing moments of “The Flash” which begged the question as to whether he might ever do it again.

Speaking at the premiere of his new sporting film “The Boys in the Boat,” Clooney was asked by Entertainment Tonight about his “The Flash” cameo and had fun with the question:

“Well, I thought … there was such a clamor for me to come back as Batman … there was a clamor. I actually said, ‘Where are my rubber nipples?’ And they were like, ‘Can we do it without the rubber nipples?’ I was like, ‘Well, it’s not really my Batman, is it?’”

Then asked if he could be convinced to come back again as Bruce Wayne/Batman one more time, he says: “I don’t think there’s enough drugs in the world for me to go back again” before smiling and walking off.

Clooney will soon be re-teaming with Brad Pitt in “Wolfs” which is currently in post-production, and will soon be working with filmmaker Noah Baumbach and actor Adam Sandler on a new project.

“The Boys in the Boat” opens on Christmas Day in cinemas.
