Cillit Bang brand ambassador Barry Scott, renowned for eradicating household grime and revitalising dirty and forgotten pennies, has said he is 'thrilled' to be moving away from commercial work after landing the role of Batman for the next instalment of the hugely successful Warner Bros franchise.
Fighting off competition from the likes of Ben Affleck, Ryan Gosling and even Hugh Jackman, Scott says he was chosen for the role after convincing directors he was the only person really capable of 'cleaning up the mess in Gotham', which he claims he can do in 'minutes'.
Scott also insisted that he won't be leaving his experience in deep cleaning behind entirely, after confirming that the degreasing product will be included in the next movie as a 'last resort weapon' for the hero crime fighter. 'Have you ever accidentally sprayed that stuff in your eyes? I have, It's lethal', said Scott. 'Forget fancy gadgets and guns, just one spray of that stuff in the face and you're not going anywhere fast'.
A Warner Bros spokesperson said: 'Barry is incredibly enthusiastic and has an impressive history of fighting scum. We accept that it has mainly been soapscum, but even so, that stuff can be pretty stubborn and difficult to remove too, just like an actual criminal'
Reading through the secret script for the hotly anticipated film, which is due to hit screens next year, Scott says he 'can't give too much away', but insists it's a 'cracker'.
'I was chuffed to see they have changed Batman's signature phrase to 'Bang and the crime is gone', I can really put some passion behind that', added Scott. 'I'm not afraid of the challenges I'll face as the masked crusader. If I can tackle ancient oven grease, I can take-on an eccentric criminal mastermind, no problem'.
