In my own lifetime, not considering the Adam West Batman that I saw in reruns, there have been conceived and executed (minus the forthcoming Robert Patterson embodiment), there have been 5 live-action movie versions of Batman
- Michael Keaton (Batman and Batman Returns)
- Val Kilmer (Batman Forever)
- George Clooney (Batman and Robin)
- Christian Bale (Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Dark Knight Rises)
- Ben Affleck (Batman v. Superman and Justice League, also cameoed in Suicide Squad)
Of course, the one who gets the label “My Batman” is Michael Keaton who appeared in Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992).
So, after I did Christopher Reeve Superman, I thought I’d like to take a shot at the DC Trinity: Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman (so you know what is coming after this one).
