    Christian Bale brings more depth to both Bruce Wayne and Batman. Before Begins, I would have said Michael Keaton, but after...definitely Christian Bale. When I first heard he was going to play Batman, I was excited because I was confident in his abilities as an actor. I wasn't let down in the least.

    Christian Bale is the best. He's got the Batman talent and fits the character the best, and he's hot!

    Christian Bale has th best presence as Bruce Wayne, but nobody carried batman as well as Michael Keaton did.

    Christian Bale plays the part incredibly well. As much as I love George Clooney, the duo of Heath Ledger and Christian Bale wins in a landslide.

    it would be a toss up between west, keaton, and bale but bale does great even though adam west was a great original. george clooney and tht whole movie was pretty much made to add the celebrity effect to batman. mr freeze only spoke in 1 liners and ivy was just played terribley.

    This is a joke. Keaton was very good don't get me wrong... but Bale defines batman in every way... he becomes him completely. No one has taken batman as serious and deep as Bale has. The only reason I can see anyone thinking Keaton over Bale is for nostalgic reasons or stubborn.

    I love Micheal Keaton's version it's classic. BUT! Batman begins was who the dark night realy was. They got it right that time. He was a dark person for good a scary person you could believe in.

    Michael Keaton was great as batman. For Kilmer and Clooney they are great actors so i wont blame them for there part in the hacked up almost turned cartoon batman 3 and 4. As for Bale his spoiled act as Bruce Wayne kinda turned me off. No way a billionaire acts that way no matter how much there tryin to protect there identity although his movies are truly superior to any other.

    Adam West did the greatest job. Dealing with all those stars. Plus it was great entertainment. The new ones are good, but dark and violent.

    I think that Bale did a pretty good job and that the current batman movies are actually more accurate in certain areas because batman was supposed to be dark and disturbed and did some bad things like when he dropped that guy off the building on to his legs and all that

    Christian Bale plays a stunning Bruce Wayne, but as Batman, he's kind of overkill (that voice... it just makes you cringe!). Now Val Kilmer as Batman was fabulous!

    Bale, hands down. I was a critic of all the batmans that replaced Keaton for a long time. But, what people are missing is that "he" actually get hurt! Bruises etc. More realistic to say the least and that changing of the voices from batman to bw is something they havent done before in the previous ones. Point is, the new batman is more real-life versus the other ones were very "movie" like. Keaton is deffinatly the runner up..

    It honestly depends on the Batman movie. I love Christian Bale as Batman in today's movies; but as far as the Batman movies from the late '80s and mid '90s go, I thought Michael Keaton was the better Batman. I loved Adam West on t.v.s 1960s satirical performance of Batman

    Christian Bale is the ONLY actor to portray batman as he was meant to be. Dark and disturbed. However, Geore Clooney's Bruce Wayne is hard to top.

    i agree with what u say, but to some extent. Christian Bale did a good job as bat man. However, in the dark knight, the movie contradicted every thing that batman stood for. Noticed that the bat mobile had guns on it. Batman would never use guns, in the movie batman begins they said managed to keep it that way but why would they end up changing there mind later on.

    I'm just saying this so others know what's up, and also in the hopes that the creators of the next movie read this, even if it is by some small chance.

    Also, next villain should be, Johnny Depp as the riddler.

    Cheesy as hell, but it least it was what it was. The movies take it to serious. Another comic book series beaten to death by greed movie companies.

    Keaton hands down he just wasn't tall enough Bale has the right build for it but his Batman voice stinks it sounds like he has a sore throat or something as for clooney and kilmer their movies sucked so bad i couldn't really finish watchings especially Clooney's

    The 1966 Batman was a blundering idiot. And all the others had no spirit. So my decision is on Bale.
