Whether you call him "the Bat-Man", "the Caped Crusader," "the Dark Knight," or "the World's Greatest Detective" Batman rules.

Last week's poll "Which Actor Played the Best Joker" was very popular, so I thought I'd switch it up and ask who was the best at playing his nemesis: Batman.

There were a number of actors that have played Bruce Wayne/Batman in film and animation. He's been an enduring character since artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger first introduced him way back in 1939's Detective Comics #27.

Batman is a cultural icon and IGN named him #2 in their list of the Top 100 Comic Book Heroes of All Time. He's steadfast, powerful and a self-made superhero. We love him and can't get enough of the guy.

Some like him dark, and some like him funny, but we all love Batman.

So, who's your favorite?


By the way, Mark Hamill from Batman: The Animated Series (1992) won the Joker poll by a narrow 46%. Heath Ledger from The Dark Knight came in second.

Come back next week for the bi-weekly Caption This! And come back in two weeks for the next poll.

I don't think this will be much of a contest. Poor George Clooney. Holy miscasting, Batman! I still remember in the theater when he delivered the "I'm Batman" line and I thought, "No you're not!" Incidentally I had the same reaction watching Chris Pine in "Star Trek."

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

If anyone picks Clooney it's only because they are a die hard fan of the man...

i picked clooney... he didn't do it wrong, he had the jaw thing going.... right.

I used to love the old Batman show with Adam West. Do I think he's the best? No, but the show's so wonderfully campy. They did have the best Catwoman, though. Or Catwomen, rather, in Julie and Eartha.

The ol' bat days were a good laugh. Adam West and his sidekick did a great job keeping the show on the road.

MPax said...

Same bat time, same bat channel. I miss that show. It was such fun.

Bale!

DAVID WALSTON said...

I think this should be divided between animated & live.
Conroy & Bale

Maurice Mitchell said...

Good point TS. I tried separating the animated from the live action before and people got upset. Plus, the Joker poll was a mix.

MedeiaSharif said...

I loved Adam West and Bale is awesome as a modern Batman.

Colin Biggs said...

I can't give Christian Bale enough credit, but Kevin Conroy is what I grew up with.
