News: Funko POP are releasing a figure of George Clooney's Batman!

No this is not an April Fool's Joke. Funko really are going to be releasing a George Clooney Batman figure from the much maligned Batman Forever follow-up Batman & Robin.

I've got to say it actually looks pretty great in toy form. I imagine a Batman Forever Sonar Suit can't be far behind because it's a pretty similar design/mould.

I've sorted of avoided talking about the infamous 1997 movie for a long time. And... well... there's a reason that this website is called

I don't really have a great hatred of Batman & Robin (like so much of the internet does) but I don't really have a great love for it either. I'm sure at some point I'll put down my complicated feelings about the movie. The short version is I think it's a rushed, lazy movie that tries and fails to copy all the beats of Batman Forever without getting the recipe right.

Anyway, I'll probably be picking this up and will do a review regardless.


  1. Batman 1997 is funky fresh and super dope!

  2. Batman & Robin 1997 is perfect. It's underrated n a really great film for lil kids. The problem is people usually expect the film to be more mature when watching it but thats not the point. I watched it when I was 5 when it first was released n I loved it! Till this day I think is aesthetically perfect too, Can't beat Mr. Freeze costume. That shit dope fr. Ask most of 90s kids, we all love it.

    1. Yeah it's a kid movie and a lot of people miss that. I think people give it a hard time.

    2. Yeah. And it's my favorite of all Batman films, along with Batman Returns. Both Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger were the greatest. Tim and Joel knew they were perfect. Both Batman 89 and Batman Forever were also my favorites, the way they had Jack Nicholson and Tommy Lee Jones, it was movie magic.
