Bale as well.
Though I preferred Keatons work in the first movie. In Returns he's basically reading articles or watching Oswald on tv. Or acting like a DJ (that has a bat symbol on it
That right there is so much of why I loved Keaton as Batman. He really was believable.
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
