Christian Bale just seems like a tougher guy than Michael Keaton.
Maybe the children nowadays think Christian Bale is superior just because of the quality of the new films but regardless how good they are, Michael Keaton is the best Batman.
yeah and where’s you evidence old nostalgic fossil? At least Bale is shown kicking serious as. All you said is “Keaton is the best…well because i say so”. GTFO prick!
SHUT THE FUCK UP you Nolan FAGGOT !
SHUT THE FUCK UP, NOSTALGIA FAG
The Christian Bale Batman sounds like a chain smoker
Keaton's 1989 version of Batman and 1992 sequel Batman Returns, always seemed way more scarier and awesome to me. From Gotham City, to the car, to Vicky Vale, to the villains and even the damn butler, these first two installments of the Batman's modern day saga have always been the best Batman movies. Firstly Keaton portrays a much darker character in his Batman persona. He is more feared by criminals and is more of a shadow like figure than a full blow vigilante. Secondly i think he does the best Bruce Wayne. Way more charismatic and easy to connect to. Also as the Bats he speaks very few times, again adding to the dark mysteriousness that surrounds this amazing character. Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale can not be compared. Even with the latest revival of Batman with Bale, Keaton's version is the one I associate this character with.
You could not be more correct
Because you’re a 40 year old virgin who can’t let go of his childhood hero?
The burton series wasn’t scary, it was emo. His films lacked depth, his story lacked any sense of danger. Nice try troll but you fail.
At least, Nolan’s films are easy to relate to dumbass. We dont need a mutated penguin or a Joker dancing to Prince music.
Po-pop you seem to have some anger anger issues, you should talk to someone about that. And i am a huge fan of both Batman’s. Michael Keatons Batman as a kid and Christian Bale’s Batman as an adult.
Keaton was more real and scary. More resourceful and such. No competition for him.
I first watched the Keaton Batman as a kid, and it scared the hell out of me. Not only is Keaton's Batman way darker and way scarier than Bale's, but Keaton's Batman (whether people agree or not), was willing to cross the line and eliminate criminals from time to time. Which is something Bale's Batman promised he'd never do. Just that fact alone gives Keaton's Batman the edge in a fight. In my opinion.
yeah but that only means that christian bales batman is more compassionate cause he remembers his parents if he were to kill an opponet he would just prove that he could kill he wants to prove that there is still goodness in the many hearts of gotham he wants to prove that no matter what he will always come out on top where as michael keatons is darker and more edgy so wouldnt that just means that he would be willing to kill and if he doesnt talk as much its because he cant portray emotions
and are you serouse it accualy scared people his costume sucked the villians were horrible it was like watching a cartoon where as christian bales bad guys are way more in depth they made you think that there could acually be some one like that ive seen those old batman movies the villians suck look at jim carries riddler he acted like one of jim carries characters he was like the mask he wasnt funny just like the other horrible villians
we’re talking about the Keaton Batman not the horrible Kilmer/Cloonie-disaster
“Keaton's Batman (whether people agree or not), was willing to cross the line and eliminate criminals from time to time.”
And so it wasn't really Batman.
Bale hands down.
The original Batman, was extremely dark and killed crimninals. Look at the original comics, Batman would swoop down and break people's necks. The one you know of is what most folks know of Batman, publicly correct. I believe both version is cool but do not state “…and so it wasn't Batman” because someone believe he would cross the line.
Keaton Batman. All the way. I also love Keaton's original bat suit out of all Batman films made imo.
Keaton-better suit, cooler, calmer, more resourceful, better fighter, less on the edge of his own sanity, less superficial, better acted, better girl — Kim and Mike were the best leading couple in any of these movies; better butler, cooler car, better cave and mansion. The only thing the new movies have over the original are Morgan F, and while that is significant because he was g-d and the president, it isn’t good enough.
people seem to forget that little fact!!!
they only know the modern age comics or what they’ve heard about it.
for sure right bale forever
Keatons Batman will always be the best much like Reeve’s Superman. He was way more mysterious etc. Bale’s version gave us more back story on his training etc but seems to be portrayed as nothing more than a ninja with a Bat outfit and bad voice. Keaton was better
Seriously i looked into it, Keaton hands down. Between both movies he is responsible for at least 25 deaths. How many does Bale have? 0.
no but Bales Batman just blows up peoples cars, buildings, drives on roof-tops and destroys pretty much everything in sight.
keaton had a psycho face than bale..
I personally appreciate Nolan’s Batman for the way he treats the character, I mean, he analyses the story and the psychology, but Christian Bale is too much Bruce Wayne and very few Batman. Michael Keaton had a wide range of expressions, from calm to nervous, from serious to disturbing smiley, and this is why he is the best Batman ever! Also, the suits, even though it was actually uncomfortable, is the best looking and the Batmobile, well, do you want to compare to any other??? Keaton is the best!!! My page for this;
Bale wins easily.
a) Keaton’s Batman couldn’t turn his head so anyone can move to the side or behind.
b) Keaton’s Batman only took on one person at a time. If the criminals gang up on him then he’s dead.
you must didn’t see the scene in Batman returns where he took on and beat most of the red triangle gang
Bale’s Bruce Wayne/Batman was too “normal”. Even when he wasn’t out in public trying to put together an act for the front page of the newspaper he seemed like a pretty average billionaire that just so happens to dress as Batman.
Keaton’s Bruce Wayne/Batman character/s made sense due to his past haunting him for YEARS until he decided to take on a very dark approach in his life. His mind was always on Batman. Even out of the costume. He didn’t have to make a terrible, over-the-top growl to intimidate. Nor did he have to make cartoonish facial expressions. Keaton was very natural for the role and was able to connect to the character quite well. He literally looked and felt like Batman.
And also, Bale’s Batman is pretty careless. He’d probably end up killing me by accident like he almost (or possibly) did with the cops in Batman Begins and the two little kids in the vehicle when Batman went around blowing things up near them.
Keaton’s Batman wouldn’t act so careless. Even if he must break his rule at least he isn’t putting innocent lives in danger. Lol
i believe bale played a better bruce wayne yet keaton was a better batman
I love Keeton but Bale’s Batman is much more edgy and tough, giving him the one up on Keeton in a fight
i agree with andrea keaton is the best batman who ever played the role!!!!! bottom line keaton wins!! bale is a douche bag!!
christian bale is the best BATMAN THAT’S IT
I love both versions of Batman. Granted they each have their pros and cons, no need to list them here, but when you take close looks at both versions they bring out the essences of Batman. Keaton’s portrayal of Batman was almost like that of a phantom, he was there just staring you down with those piercing eyes. He was so cold and isolated, especially in Batman Returns, that it showed us that Batman is the real identity of Bruce Wane. Keaton had the feel of the Batman legend behind him with they way he was portrayed.
Bale’s portrayal showed us how to become Batman and the full motivation Bruce Wayne had to become Batman. Clearly Bale was the most physical Batman we’ve seen and that showed us the abilities and rage Batman has. Watching him especially in Batman Begins it’s like you could feel the anger welling up inside him ready to explode on his next target. Bale gave us the feeling of really becoming the Batman which is why I loved his movies.
Personally I love Keaton more because I see Batman as a silent, cold, and brooding hero. Why argue and insult what these two actors have done for Batman? Keaton helped shape what Batman is and Bale took it to a different level. Both of these actors have the best portrayals of Batman and I’m proud to have those two represent my favorite hero. They both brought different things to the table and pulled it off like no others probably ever will.
Bales batman would totally woop Keaton batmans butt. Now I’ve seen all the batman movies and bales by far was way more scary, dark, stealthy, strong, and smart. Bales would totes win.
FUCK WHY ARE THERE SO MANY FAGGOTS VOTING BALE !?? FUCK !! JUST FUCK
MICHEAL KEATON IS THE BEST BATMAN IN MOVIES FUCK BALE AND HIS FUCKING ATROCIOUS VOICE AND FUCK HIS SHITTY LAME ASS FIGHTS !
Haha only the fans of Batman 89 and Batman returns think Keaton is better when they don’t know shit about Batman. Bale portrayed the pain and anger that drives Bruce Wayne Keaton didn’t portray shit he just looked like a fat retard in a bat suit. Burtonites don’t know anything about Batman/Bruce Wayne that’s why they talk random bullshit. Bale was/is way more built for the role and looked bad ass as Batman unlike Keaton. People saying Keaton please go away and do your research. Bale is Batman, Keaton played the role of Batman.
This is over who would win in a fight not who’s a better character. Hands down bale woulda bsat keatons ass. Keaton is scrawny and undersized compared to bale. But I prefer keaton too
No freaking way keatons batman beats bales. Keaton didn’t even look like he was remotely trained by ras al ghul. Im sorry but simple kicks and a punch here and there was nothing compared to the fighitng skills of christians batman. Also, i hated keaton in the fact that he killed at least 3 people in his time as batman in both movies he was in. THis went against everything batman stands for and keatons batman and just took a shit on it. Michael Caine was so much better than Gough because Caine served more as a father image to wayne rather than a servent like Gough did. Ledger was kick ass and anyone who disagrees doesnt know good acting. Devitos penguin disgusted me too. THe only thing i would give burton was that catwoman was better (hathaway sucked), gotham city looked waaaay cooler at night and kim basinger was better thatn gylenhal, hathaway, cotillard, and holmes combined as a love interest. Burtons gordon was too vaugue to see what he really was whereas gary oldman captured exactly who jim gordon is. Harvey dent too. Aaron eckhart was awesome. The music from nolan sounded soooooo much more batman badass but burtons was cool too. end of story
to big a time difference. they r basically made up of just their toys and the special effects r so much better now
In terms of looks – Michael Keaton
For everything else, Christian Blae
