Hollywood star George Clooney has once again apologised for 1997 superhero movie Batman & Robin, admitting that he had destroyed the franchise.

Appearing on The Graham Norton Show to talk about his latest movie Tomorrowland, the 54-year-old hunk says he still apologises for the movie, reported Ace Showbiz.

"I did Batman & Robin...which was a disaster. Other than that, there's never been a reason for me to go to Comic-Con," Clooney said.

When the host pointed out that Clooney had apologised before for the critically-panned movie, the Emmy-winning actor replied, "I always apologise for Batman & Robin. Let me just say that I actually thought I destroyed the franchise, ya know, until they brought it back and changed it."

While most actors would gain more prominence after taking a superhero role, Clooney thought he made a bad career move with playing the Caped Crusader in the 1997 movie. "I thought at the time, this was going to be a good career move. Um, it wasn't," he added.

Clooney went on talking about wearing the heavy suit and drew laughs when mimicking director Joel Schumacher, who was in charge of Batman & Robin.
