We've had so many Batmans throughout cinematic history that awhile back the Hollywood Reporter ran a poll to discover how they ranked amongst fans. Unsurprisingly, Michael Keaton ranked in the top two, just one percentage point off Christian Bale. Well, these fans will be thrilled by the news that the actor is now in talks to return as Batman in the upcoming 'Flash' movie. What's more, "If a deal makes, Keaton wouldn’t just return for 'Flash' but possibly for several other DC-oriented film projects."
So it's clear Keaton is much loved, but what do people think about the other Batmen? While it’s clear the Zack Snyder-directed era starring Affleck had very poor results (i.e. bombed at the box office), he’s surprisingly not people’s least favorite!
With that said, let's take a look at the best actors who have played Batman over the years, and see who cracked the top five.
