Here is the my video on which is the better Batman:
Neither. Obviously Clooney is best Batman.
Kevin Conroy is Batman. End of discussion .
Silly question. Kevin Conroy, of course.
Between the two, I'd go with Michael Keaton. Christian makes a great Bruce Wayne, but the Batman voice is just awful on the ears.
But, I like Batman 1989 a lot, so i'm probably biased there.
Bale is the best. His character develops, thus requiring an evolving performance. Keaton's character never really learned or moved on with his life. The Tim Burton films are episodes in a standalone series, the Nolan films are an actual story.
Kevin Conroy lol but for the live action i would go with Keaton, with Bale uhhhh he maybe did well as Bruce Wayne but as Batman.......wow, especially when he does that really annoying voice like it has something on his throat.
Adam West. He's got the best voice and delivery and he fills out the suit with solid West, even if his cowl is purple. He's the only Batman it seems legitimate that Catwoman would fall in love with.
I'm not voting for Christian Bale because I maintain when they set out to make Batman they got confused and made The Shadow instead.
Eh, they were both really good. If I had to pick just for Batman, I'd say Keaton, but I really didn't like Keaton's portrayal of Bruce Wayne. I'd say overall Christian Bale is my favorite as he portrays the multiple dimension/ duality of the character better.
Oh, and Kevin Conroy, obviously, for the best Animated Batman.
I've never had a particular preference as far as live action Batmans go. All I can say is that Christian Bale is ridiculously difficult to take seriously as Batman. He comes across as sounding really, really goofy.
Bale by like a million percent. To be fair, though, he actually had a character with an arc to play. Keaton only gets a few character bits in his films, he mostly stands around as others chew the scenery.
He was trying to disguise his voice while he is Batman. Which is what Batman should sound like. In Frank Miller's All Star Batman and Robin, Robin refers to Batman voice as "cold." So Batman's voice is supposed to be different.
I don't want to start a flame war on here, so I will just say this: Bale was the FAR BETTER Batman.
I think Bale was the better Batman as long as you can get around the voice.
As much as people knock the voice.....it has made Bale the most quotable batman. Not because he really said anything memorable but because of HOW he said it.
So I guess you can take that any way you want.
Fact is, that if you watch most videos on Youtube most people tend to mimic his batvoice.
Keaton's movies aren't as good as Bale, but Bale SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS as Bats.
Very mature .
I love Bale's Batman voice. Put yourself in an illiterate thug's shoes, what's scarier? "I'm Batman." Or "SWEAR TO ME!!!!!"
Bale in every area, even voice.
Keaton had little to work with, but there was nothing different to his performance when he was Wayne or Batman.
While people are quick to mock Bales post production Batman voice, he is not often praised for his three different personas, the playboy airhead, the intelligent guy in the batcave and the 'beast' to quote Bale himself, when he puts the suit on.
Keaton displays none of the wit, charm or gravitas when performing either dimension of the character. This isn't really much of a comparison, they play two entirely different versions of Batman and Bales is vastly more interesting, in my opinion.
The concept of having different voices for Wayne and Batman was perfectly sound, it's the the execution that's the problem. I think it's Bale gravely "Cookie Monster" voice that gets all of the flak. The idea work, especially in the bit in TDK where he takes the gag out of the blindfolded guy and he immediately knows it's Batman just by the voice.
