Pierce Brosnan has revealed he was in the running to play Batman for Tim Burton.

The former James Bond met with the director while he was looking for his Caped Crusader for 1989's "Batman," but he admits he couldn't quite see himself in the superhero role.

In a new Reddit chat, Brosnan recalls, "I just couldn't really take it seriously; any man who wears his underpants outside his pants just cannot be taken seriously. That was my foolish take on it. It was a joke, I thought. But how wrong was I?

"Don't get me wrong, because I love Batman, and I grew up on Batman. As a kid in Ireland, we used to get our raincoats and tie them round our neck and swing through the bicycle shed."

The role was picked up by Michael Keaton, who played Batman in two Burton movies. The character has also been played by George Clooney, Val Kilmer and Christian Bale on the big screen.
