Batman is one of the the most popular superheroes on this planet. Many actors have portrayed him in different ways. You have Michael Keaton in Tim Burton's Batman, 1989, Adam West play Batman on the television series from 1966-1968, Val Kilmer played the cape crusader in Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever, 1995, George Clooney in Batman & Robin 1997, Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight series 2005, 2008 & 2012. Lets not forget Lewis Wilson and Robert Lowery, they too played batman in the 40's. Each actor had something different to bring to the role.
So I ask the question, "Who is Batman to you?" If you're a Batman fan, then I assume you at least watched most of the Bat flicks.
To me Batman is...Christian Bale. I'm not just saying that because he's a fan favorite. I choose him because unlike the other cape crusader actors, Bale did 3 Dark Knight films so it made him pretty consistence as Batman. All 3 films did amazing at the box office, mostly 2008's The Dark Knight is one of the highest grossing movie's off all time. Bale's Batman was the most realistic Batman, with money being his biggest resource. Plus there wasn't a cheesy villain. The Penguin, Two-face, The Riddler and Mr. Freeze were a little too corny for my interests. Still great films but I knew that they were fiction. But of course that is just my opinion. So, WHO IS BATMAN TO YOU?
