Earlier than we get into the numbers, we must always begin by stating the controversial alternative to go away some names off our listing as attainable picks for the very best Batman. Val Kilmer, Adam West, and the late nice Kevin Conroy have been all absent from this ballot, as was George Clooney (however that was extra of an act of pity for the poor man on our half). As an alternative, we have supplied a alternative between arguably the actors most acquainted to fashionable audiences – and sure, Michael Keaton issues as a result of he is the primary to take action and his much-publicized return in ‘The Flash’.
Now the outcomes are in. One thousand and fifty-seven of you accomplished our survey, ensuing within the right and proper results of Keaton’s victory. With 37.6% of the vote, the person who launched Tim Burton’s two Batman movies, 1989’s “Batman” and 1992’s “Batman Returns”, got here out on high. However Christian Bale was not far behind. In reality, it was uncomfortably shut, with Bale getting 36.5% of the vote and proving that he and Christopher Nolan’s movies retain their much-vaunted standing in standard tradition.
In the meantime, our present Batman, Robert Pattinson, got here in with a comparatively meager 15%. However contemplating he is solely been in a single film and would not but have the nostalgia driving him, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Ben Affleck, alternatively, acquired a paltry 10.9%, suggesting to finish his run because the Caped Crusader wasn’t actually a missed alternative in spite of everything.
