Who’s Your Favorite Batman In Cinema?

Ben Affleck as Batman really doesn’t sound appealing, I know. But with “Batman vs. Superman” in post-production and guaranteed for release next year, it seems like a really good time to reflect on the Ghosts of Batmen Past, doesn’t it? Editor Jacob Swinney put together this compendium of Batman in Cinema, from Lewis Wilson on through to Christian Bale.

Even though I grew up with Michael Keaton as Batman, my hands-down favorite is Christian Bale. Oh, and this montage really begs some eternal questions, like why was Batman ever set to surf rock? And whose bright idea was it to cast George Clooney as Bruce Wayne? Yeesh. I have a feeling we’ll be asking the same about Affleck next year, but at least with Jason Momoa, Jeremy Irons, Lawrence Fishburne, and Jesse Eisenberg, it can’t be all bad.
