George Clooney's Batman = apologies
Praising article at Movieweb titled "Why George Clooney Is the First to Admit He Was Terrible in Batman & Robin. George Clooney explains why he has no problem admitting he was terrible in Batman And Robin"
A protest: George Clooney wasn't terrible as Batman, the movie Batman and Robin itself was terrible. The truth of the situation is that he wasn't given a shot at actually playing Batman, instead he was Bat-Dad, saddled up with family responsibilities and dialogue that was like the worst of the DC Comics series Batman Family. The film was jammed with other celebrity appearances and seemed to be deliberately modeled on emulating (or updating?) the Adam West Batman show but without the charm. Clooney has always been willing to take the blame for this movie, which is a kindness, but his role in the disaster seems minor compared to all the other decisions (direction, story, art direction, etc) that created the mess.

It is probably hard for any adult under the age of say, fifty, who has kept tabs on the activities of the Disney Company, to not be aware of the incredible slide of the company in reputation. At one time Disney stood out as an entertainment entity with a very shiny reputation and considered by most of us who paid attention to such things as in a special category all its own.
