    Michael Keaton rocks. He was excellent as the Vulture.

    Still unquestionably my favourite Batman. For all of Bale's shouting and Affleck's muscle, Keaton's Batman is still the only version I could really see myself being intimidated by. His piercing gaze when he first meets Selina Kyle is demonic looking and creepy as all hell. And though Affleck put in a good effort (helped massively by the writing), I still think Keaton offers up the most tortured and angst-ridden Bruce Wayne. Every time we see him sitting in the batcave, he looks totally consumed by the memory of his parents' murder.

    Although Bale's Batman just edges it over Keaton's for me, I'll take Keaton's Bruce Wayne over Bale's any day. And The Dark Knight and Batman Returns pretty much tie for my top Batman film. Affleck is a close third for Batman and my number two for Bruce Wayne.

    keaton is an out of the box decision that somehow worked very, very well.
    even though his bruce wayne was a bit of an awkward loner, keaton brought an everyman charm to it.
    he's not exactly the comic book bruce wayne, but it works for that retro-goth universe that tim burton created.

    his batman is also the closest we'll probably ever get to the original 1939 batman.
    mysterious, mostly silent, and killing criminals. lol.

    Always loved this ...

    Clearly drawn to be Keaton in a more traditional comic accurate black and grey bat suit.
