    If by "In today's society" you mean "your generation", then sure. For my generation it was Michael Keaton (and to a much lesser extent Val Kilmer and George Clooney) which brought Batman into HUGE popularity.

    But when I was referring to "Dark Knight Returns", that is a Graphic Novel done by the creator of 300, Frank Miller; which is widely regarded as the best piece of Batman literature ever. And he's got short ears in that, and is super buff. Like the picture.

    And I maintain, Christian Bales Batman fails simply because of that stupid voice.
    The voice isn't stupid at all. That's such misguided internet bullshit.

    He obviously can't go talking like Bruce fucking Wayne as Batman. Would you rather he disguise his voice with a pee-wee herman type accent?


    Btw, the short ears look tacky. It makes the suit look like it's too small or something..

    Nah, its just stupid.

    As I said, Michael Keaton had a bit of a voice.. enough of a voice. Bale took it over the top.


    We'll agree to disagree on the ears. I think they look bad ass and the ones that are like 6" long look tacky.

    Give me Keaton over any of em. I think I'm going to like Afflecks Batman though.
    I expect his to be the angriest and most bent on revenge/justice.

    Am I "casual" just because I don't like it?

    As I mentioned previously, Keaton had a voice. And it was fine. Its not that he changes his voice that I take issue with. Its the extreme with which he's taken it. Even the people doing the auditions didn't expect that.

    Not to mention, Bale didn't even consider the comics when coming up with "the Voice" ...
    "I got there. They put me in Val Kilmer's suit. It didn't even fit properly, and I stood in it and I went 'I feel like an idiot.' What kind of guy walks around, dressed like a bat? And is then going to go 'Hello, how are you? Just ignore that I'm dressed as a bat.' Of course, he's meant to be doing this. If you look at the history of the guy and the pain that he went through. I went 'I can't do this in a normal voice. I have to become a beast in order to sell this to myself.'"
    It always sounded to me like his nose was plugged while wearing that mask.

    i am actually going through the whole collection right now, got them on blue ray. batman returns is keaton's best. i think he gets bruce wayne the best but his batman is like watching walker texas ranger with cut-aways because he isn't physical enough.

    keaton also goes out of his way to tell women he is batman so he can bang them. bale and kilmer do batman well, kilmer does bruce better, but like miller's comic bale's batman kicks so much ass. you know if the president sent supes after him bale wouldn't even need help to kick his ass.

    i am excited about batfleck but i doubt he is able to stand up to superman the way bale would. i think his batman will be the cold scientific batman who runs the justice league.

    anyone here see crisis on two earths, war or flashpoint paradox? batman is so much the shit

    I love Batman. Keaton was great. Kilmer and Clooney weren't very good at all, but the movies themselves were awful. Honestly, Batman, with Keaton was a good movie, and Nolan's trilogy was fantastic. The rest was really awful. Many like Batman Returns with the Penguin I think, but that movie sucked too as far as I'm concerned.

    I thought Bale was awesome as Batman, and loved the deep voice. I'm not at all convinced that Affleck can pull off a better Batman, but I hope he does because I want this film to be good, because generally, super hero movies are poorly done IMO.

    As far as Batman movies go I would rank them as 1. The Dark Knight 2. The Dark Knight Rises 3. Batman Begins 4. Batman and that's. The others aren't even worth watching IMO. The one with Arnie and Carrey is fucking brutal.

    Apparently Jason Mamoa (Khal Droga to Game of Thrones fans) has been cast as Aquaman, and will make a small appearance in BvS. I'm ok with this. Dudes a bad ass.
