I love this question, I love all things batman ok let me get to the point
I hate the george clooney movies mainly because batman was more of a joke and not serious, but I liked that they followed the comic book relatively close
The keaton movies was the first batman movie I actually liked before the bale movies came and I love the dark knight series but I hate that whispering thing he did and although he is a great actor he doesn't really have that bruce wayne look to him
Ben Affleck is definitely a no, im so worried for this new movie because ben Affleck annoys me, but after watching the trailer I'll give him a fair shot, remember when everyone found out that heath ledger was going to play the joker, they laughed in his face and he absolutely killed it!! So im hoping that he can pull through because if he doesn't he will be shamed forever I also read that apparently he might be getting his own movie series
Kevin Conroy. Yes pour on your scorn, but it really was a great adaptation. Got the right ballance of gothic/noir and more fanciful elements. End the villains really held up well. Think, that adaptation gave us Harley! And the Harley/Ivy love affair. And Mark Hamill was a great joker.
1. Christian Bale 2. Michael Keaton 3. Val Kilmer 4. George Clooney
Christian Bale killed it as batman, thanks in large part to the brilliance of Nolan and the way he was written in as batman. However, from the trailers it looks like Ben Affleck would be really good as Batman, so he may be 1-2 depending on how well the movie goes.
batman sucks. Terrible character. 0 flaws. no real story and predictable.
Adam West, Robert Lowery and Lewis Wilson will always be the greatest Batman portrayals with Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and Kevin Conroy right up there with honest outstanding portrayals, with a possible strong leaning toward Robert Lowery overall.
When Christian Bale was Batman the action was better due to new directors and action scenes developing in 2012, I vote D. C was rather funny though.
