Well, surely if he was a better actor he'd be given credit for the things he's been in? Okay, the films weren't that bad and maybe Batman is now something that 'makes him' and takes away the puffy shit I've unfortunately seen him in - but I'm not going to pause my lungs in anticipation.
Certainly don't dislike the bloke, nor in Twiglit the lady actor alongside him, but I was left thinking 'if only they could act'.
But I am biased, Adam West will never be beaten, nor will Heath Ledger as Joker in my humble. The Batman lad in Gotham is good, but still doesn't feel 'right' to me if that makes sense.
Batman isnt like superman, where there was really only one man who nailed the role and noone will ever get close to what christopher reeve did. Reeve WAS superman and he WAS clarke Kent.
I think I prefer Bale. But I liked keaton. What does annoy me with bale though is when he is batman his voice is a little too husky. I struggle to understand what he says sometimes but he is by far the better actor.
Still. Superman is by far the best superhero. (Christopher reeve version only)
