FarkingReading: While I also think Keaton was the best, this 2012 poll had Bale as the best by far:
http://www.theguardian.com/film/filmblog/poll/2012/jul/18/best-batma n- poll

57 percent Bale to Keaton's 20 percent (he came in second).

In two 2013 polls, Bale had only a slight lead over Keaton:

http://forums.superherohype.com/showthread.php?t=464747


So, in short, while I disagree with the general public, there is no need for the Supreme Court to step in and appoint Bale president. He won it fair and square.


Well, for the first poll, The Dark Night Rises was coming out in a couple days.  Due to historical proximity to the material, people are going to identify more readily to it especially if they're unfamiliar with the earlier material which was decades earlier.  For the second, a lot of that proximity will have waned due to the trilogy being over and the third movie not living up to expectations, but there will still likely be a large dearth of awareness of the earlier material.

It'd be like if Chris Farrell was a more popular Quaid than Arnold.

Plus it was an online poll. More Bale fans would be tech savvy compared to the Keaton fans. So they would naturally be over sampled.

yves0010: Snapper Carr: yves0010: ltdanman44: Prometheus_Unbound: Keaton was the best Bruce Wayne.

There, I said it.

2nded.  A lot of people believe he was the best batman

To me, he was the 2nd best Batman as Adam West was the best. Though I know it was campy, I loved the 60s Batman. So Adam West will always be #1. Keaton is a close #2. The rest a very large distance away... I think Bale at #3 and Kilmer and Clooney way out as #4 and #5 (Bat Nipples).

Everyone who plays the role will be judged by one standard

I think hes the best voice for Batman. But not the best filmed Batman. I think he had the best Batman but since he only voiced the character, though it is much harder, and he did not act the character in real life. He is not included in the list of best Batman actors.


THANK YOU! I get tired of this comparison. It is ridiculous. Compare him to other Batman voice actors, not real-life Bat actors.

Crewmannumber6: Zombie DJ: I like how he said on the Today show, "Oh, I don't know. Why people go crazy about this stuff? I don't get it."
Exactly.

And this was Keaton's best role.
"We could call ourselves love brokers."

MayoSlather: Biv: Smackledorfer: MayoSlather: Not the right build, not the right look, not the right tone for the character

This can, and will, be said of every single person who ever plays batman. I'm not saying you cannot hold that opinion, but bear in mind there is no one single character "batman". Unless you are a true originalist and want to go back to the first comic book run or something.

Although I think we can all agree anything wearing a nippled suit is ridiculous.

Hell, the Batman that most "looked" like Batman and Bruce was Clooney...and we know how that turned out.

I don't think Clooney was actually a great fit either, but you're conflating the script and direction with the actor's ability to embody the role. If Clooney had Burton or Nolan directing it would have been a different story. This is also why Keaton gets a pass from so many people, if he had Schumacher directing he'd be universally panned as terrible.

Director and script aside, Keaton was the worst for the role.


I think we are arguing different things. I'm talking about who was the best batman (again entirely suggestive) and you aren't.

Brick-House: OK, here's an idea. Before passing judgement on something that hasn't even happened yet, how about we wait until the movie is released, perhaps read the critics reviews and even a spectrum of fan reviews. Then, based on what you've read decide to see it or not. If you're on the fense, go to a early show which are usually cheaper and if it so bad that you can't watch it, have a plan to theater hop into a show you do want to watch.  Then and only then, come here and biatch, gripe and complain about the casting choice.

Or you can just continue to biatch, gripe and complain now which will have no effect on what is to come.

This being FARK, I am sure you'll act in a well thought out and reasonable manner.

//I can't believe I type all that with a stright face.


Take your reasonable and sensible suggestions elsewhere!

For what it's worth, I think the Batman with the pronounced codpiece and nipples was the most suggestive.

Before Batman I questioned Keaton in the role.  Didn't seem to have any brooding or intensity to him, which I thought would be necessary.  After Batman he was in a movie called Pacific Heights where he played a psychotic squatter (kind of).  In the trailer there's a shot of his eyes as he lights a cigarette and someone in the theater yelled, "I'm Batman" and it worked.

Pacific Heights showed that Keaton actually could act, and that wouldn't have been possible if he hadn't been a good Bats.

Clean and Sober actually was before Batman.  The thing about Pacific Heights is while not a great film (not bad either) it showed a side I had never seen before (never saw Clean and Sober).

He had the duality better than most. Spacey billionaire, the guy who uses his access and money to get better toys and fight crime.

IMHO when they let Bale show it in the first movie, he did a passable job.

nice to see all the love for Nightshift, Mr. Mom, and Johnny Dangerously. All three are ridiculously quotable and still pretty damb funny.

I understand that you little guys start out with your woobies and you think they're great... and they are, they are terrific. But pretty soon, a woobie isn't enough. You're out on the street trying to score an electric blanket, or maybe a quilt. And the next thing you know, you're strung out on bedspreads Ken. That's serious.
