Who is the best Batman of them all?
September 19 is Batman Day
We've had so many Batmans throughout cinematic history that a while 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.
But what do viewers 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! Robert Pattinson is the next young actor to step up to the plate, starring in 'The Batman' directed by Matt Reeves. Reeves has promised to deliver an "emotional Batman movie” that will be radically different from anything we've seen before. This would definitely seem to suit his new Batman. Robert Pattinson is better known for playing the romantic lead rather than the action hero. The movie is set to be released in 2022, at which time there are sure to be ruthless comparisons to his predecessors!
With that said, let's take a look at the best (and worst) actors who have played Batman so far.
