    Like James Bond, there have been many actors playing Batman who ran the spectrum of good to bad performances. I think I got everyone (skipped anyone pre-Adam West).

    Personally I have a two way tie between Adam West (my childhood Batman) & Christian Bale. But I’m gonna go with Adam West. Made me laugh.

    I was mixed.

    Keaton was my favorite Batman, but not my favorite Bruce Wayne.

    Bale was my favorite Bruce Wayne, but not my favorite Batman! (I really liked him, I just liked Keaton a bit more as "The Batman").

    I voted Keaton since it said Batman, but if including Bruce Wayne, I'd be 50/50 between them

    @Multifarious5 - I always thought Michael Keaton looked weird in his Batman costume. Like some little kid that borrowed it from his dad’s closet.:haha:

    Great. I am going to picture that every time I watch it now.

    (I actually loved Bale as Batman, until hubs pointed out his overly-gravely voice. While I know he's doing it to disguise his "Bruce" voice, it distracts me now.)

    I am GRINNING about the "kid in the costume", and groaning, because I have a feeling you are spot on!

    All-in-all though, just keep Alicia Silverstone out of the series, and I'm a-OK!

    I grew up watching Adam West, but....I think Christian Bale was an excellent Dark Knight. Plus, I'm an extra in TDKR.

    I'm not a big superhero movie guy, but I've seen two Batman movies in the theater. Both times, it was at the request of the woman in my life at the time. The two I've seen? Batman & Robin and The Dark Knight Rises, the two worst Batman movies made. I do not plan on seeing a third.

    Fun Fact: Adam West & Frank Gorshin were once kicked out of an orgy for refusing to break character. I wish I was half that cool.

    Adam West is Batman. LOL I grew up watching the original series and I've seen all of the Batman movies, but I really don't have a favorite Batman amongst the other actors who portrayed the character.

    I watched Batman as a kid on TV. Only later, as an adult, did I appreciate the jokes & guest appearances. But if I had to sit through a batman movie, I'd prefer it to be a Bale rendition. Why? Because I can't look at him without thinking "American Psycho" .

    I know Batfleck got a ton of hate for BvS and JL but I actually really dug it. Loved the tired, beat up Frank Miller inspired version. But Keaton was the best Batman imo.

    Since I was a young teen in the early 90s when the greatest depiction of Batman outside of the comics was first being aired I can say Kevin Conroy is my Batman just as Mark Hamill is my Joker.

    I never understood batman.

    Why dont the police like him? He clearly is helping them get bad guys. Just never understood the whole bat thing either.

    Superman now, thats another story.

    When Adam West was asked the question he said it was him, because all he had was a leotard when all of the others had plastic body armor. He also said that they would occasionally have to take a ‘short break’ from filming when he and Robin were up against Catwoman and her female minions.
