Which Played The Better Batman?

The first actor to portray "Batman" was Lewis Wilson in 1943. The comic hero had been around for just four years

The second to play the masked hero was Robert Lowery in 1949 in The New Adventures of Batman & Robin.

Then came actor Adam West, who starred in the 1966 installment of Batman along with the tongue-in-cheek series that followed.

Michael Keaton played Batman twice, in the action films Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992).

Val Kilmer played the caped crusader in Batman Forever (1995)

George Clooney portrayed him in Batman & Robin (1997).

Most recently, Christian Bale took on the role, in Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008).

Michal Keaton was the best Batman. Simply beacuse he played both sides well. He was a good Batman and a good Bruce as well.

Lazy and very sloppy, when a simple piece of research would have been easy.

That is not a photo of Lewis Wilson, it is a picture of Lyle Wagonner, wearing the costume that bith he and Adam West wore when auditioning for BATMAN in 1965!

Did it never occur to you, Einstein, that the photo was in colour?
