Michael Keaton was the best Batman and Christian Bale is the best Bruce Wayne.

I picked Bale, but I like your answer better.

Christian Bale.

Kilmer and Clooney don't even deserve to be on this list.  Kevin Conroy does.

@zymase:  I know what you mean, but I was going for live action.

Kevin Conroy

#12 Posted by RE_Player1 (7558 posts) -

Kevin Conroy. I'm not saying that to be an uber fan because I know the actor who played him in the animated series I just honestly think he is the best Batman. Second to him would be Christian Bale in my book.

Pierce Brosnan.

Bale is my answer.  The other actors lack the proper gravitas I think a brooding Batman should have.

Kevin Conroy is not an option...

#20 Posted by Yummylee (21547 posts) -

I thought Kilmer done a good Batman. Though Keaton was a really cool Batman I feel. He put in alot of his own natural eerieness to contribute to his Batman.

#21 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

I vote Super Secret Multiple Choice Letter 'F'. Kevin Conroy as best Batman. The animated series was just amazing. 

#22 Posted by Ramyun (664 posts) -

Green Lantern Batman is the best Batman.

#23 Posted by EvilTwin (3324 posts) -

Christian Bale is in the best Batman movie, but he is not the best Batman. 

#24 Posted by James_F (15 posts) -

I'd say Kevin Conroy if he was an option, but Keaton would have to be my favorite live-action Batman because of how dark and brooding his portrayal was (plus he lit that clown on fire with the Batmobile, which was out of character, but when I saw that scene as a kid, I thought it was so bad-ass).

I will give up the oportunity to say "I am Batman" or to comment on Batman bin Suparman (overdone already). I will say I voted Bale. However Keaton was great. Anyone who voted West is an idiot. West was a campy rip off of Batman and DC should have murdered whoever agreed to lend that name to West's show. Kilmer wasn't horrible, but he shouldn't have been cast as Bruce. He's too cool but not sly enough to be a stuffy millionare. So, between Keaton and Bale, it was a hard choice. Keaton was a shocker back in the 80's. He did Beetlejuice, which left everyone floored. Then he flipped it and played Batman/Bruce Wyane. Both were outside of his chuckle stand-up comedy. Meanwhile, Bale grasped the gritty character, and is enough of a pomp to do the Bruce Wayne part truthfully. Also, Bale and Nolan have a good working relationship, and there is little lost between the two's vision. Still, the dark comedy of Keaton and Burton really touched on the comic book's tone. But when that movie came out, Batman had already been turned into the darker and less humerous story that Nolan eventually adopted.

Russian Martian Batman is my favorite. Followed by Kevin Conroy and then Michael Keaton.

Bingo.  I watched Batman: Under the Red Hood last week and Conroy isn't Wayne/Batman in it (Bruce Greenwood is).  It was very disconcerting to me.  Conroy is my Batman of choice always, but if you're limiting me to just live-action appearances, the I'll go with Michael Keaton.  His Batman felt as crazy as his rogues-gallery.
#30 Posted by NinjaTard (151 posts) -

I really love the new Dark Knight movies but Christian Bale as Batman is just growly marble mouth ridiculousness. Not a bad Bruce Wayne but I love Val Kilmer's Bruce (sorry). I think the best Batman has yet to be seen. I know Michael Keeton and Adam West are *NOT* worthy of wearing the cape and cowl. 
 
They should do a movie of Birds of Prey...that would be hot!

I like my batman camp and from the 60's. All this modern dark batman nonsense isn't worth my time (I know they may be more true to the comics, but screw the comics!!!!). So that's a vote for Adam West.

Kevin Conroys voice and Bales everything else.

#33 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Adam Wee!  
 
For the more serious Batman there is only one though and that's Bale.  
Then again Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were the only serious ones..

Russian Martian Batman.

#37 Posted by OldGuy (1552 posts) -

Kevin Conroy is the only correct answer.

Aye. I saw the Batman movie form the 60s a few weeks ago and it was far more entertaining than the rest of the movies, apart from, maybe, Forever.

I voted Clooney. How could I not?

I agree with you 100%. Bale's batman voice just kills me. 
#41 Posted by nick_verissimo (1383 posts) -

When I think of Batman, I think of the animated series and Kevin Conroy's voice is synonymous with Bats.  Having him voice Batman in Arkham Asylum made that game more amazing then it already was.  So ya, Kevin Conroy is THE Batman.

#42 Posted by audiosnag (1604 posts) -

Not to beat a dead horse...but Kevin Conroy not being on this list is a travesty. A TRAVESTY!!!
I voted Bale. He occasionally overdoes the voice but i think it's appropriate for what they were going for. Keaton was great but Nolan/Bales Batman is the first time they totally nailed it on the big screen.

#43 Posted by FlyingRat (1446 posts) -

I think i've only really seen enough of Bale to judge his performance and i think he plays a very uninteresting Batman, so it's definetly not him. Same as a lot of people here i would have picked Kevin Conroy if he was an option, but since he isn't, i won't vote.

Very easily, like any sane person would.
 
On a side note, awesome avatar!
#45 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2712 posts) -

If Kevin Conroy isnt allowed then I guess Bale.

Again, I was going for live action... only.

No but seriously, I love how the first post was like the best one.
#50 Posted by Djeffers03 (2545 posts) -

He may be a dick but  Bale gets my vote. I can't take any of the rest seriously.
