Default Re: Christian Bale v.s. Michael Keaton - Part 2

2 inches? Isn't Bale like 6'1 or 6'2? I thought Keaton was around 5'8 or 5'9?

And Keaton was cut, post-Batman, I think. But not built. He looked toned in Extreme Measures...but he's never looked muscular in any film to me.

People pick at Keaton's height, but it wasn't noticeable, at all, in the movies except for maybe that long shot at the very beginning of B89 when he's coming down on the crooks. But, aside from that one scene, his height isn't a problem to me. I think maybe he was shorter than Selina, but again...the way it was shot I never remember it being an issue.

Bale's voice in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight sounded the same to me.

I'm surprised anyone liked The Dark Knight, really. Considering so many people don't like Batman. It's a Batman, not liking Batman sounds like something that would make the movie bad for people.
