'Terminator' star Arnold Schwarzenegger says he does not regret being part of 'Batman & Robin' even though the film flopped.

The 65-year-old former California governor said that his role as Mr Freeze in the infamous 1997 Joel Schumacher movie was interesting, reported Digital Spy online. "In most cases I don't regret the movies that failed or were not as good.

It's always easy to be smug in hindsight, right? I don't regret it at all. I felt that the character was interesting and two movies before that one Joel Schumacher was at his height. So the decision-making process was not off," Schwarzenegger said.

"At the same time I was doing Eraser over there and Warner Bros begged me to do the movie," he added. Schwarzenegger has never appeared in another comic book movie, although he was once in talks to appear as Doctor Octopus in the Spider-Man franchise before negotiations with 20th Century Fox collapsed.

His "Batman & Robin" co-star George Clooney has been openly derisive of the film on various occasions. Schwarzenegger will next be seen in Kim Ji-woon's "The Last Stand", which hits US cinemas on January 18 and in the UK on January 25.
