And the best actor to play Batman is…

March 5, 2011


What. A. Badass.

Actually kinda surprised that there wasn’t more Keaton love to go around, but, man, talk about an upgrade from the days of George Clooney’s nipple suit. Chris Nolan needs to hurry his ass up and finish out this trilogy already!

Solid voting, folks. But never forget the Keaton.

– Christian Bale: 29 votes
– Michael Keaton: 11 votes (that dude needs a comeback already)
– Adam West: 7 vote
– Val Kilmer: 4 votes
– George Clooney: 1 vote (amazed he even got one)
– Other: 2 votes for Kevin Conroy (thinking’ outside the box, I dig that) 1 vote for Mark Hamill (I thought he voiced The Joker?), and 1 vote for Aiden Redmond (I can see that).

    Kevin Conroy was in a theatrically released Batman movie, but yea, most people don’t consider him when thinking of Batman leads.

      What movie was that? Mask of the Phantasm or Under the Red Hood?

        Mask of the Phantasm had a theatrical release in 1993. It didn’t do very well at the boxoffice.

        I actually dragged my mom to that back in the day. Remember liking it, but it’s been way too long. Will get to it during the Batman marathon I’ll eventually have to do before The Dark Knight Rises.

    Keaton got some nice roles in Toy Story 3 and The Other Guys, I hope they continue to come in.

    Bale’s victory is deserved. He nails both Wayne and The Batman. I would love to see him get nominated for the role.

      Didn’t know he was in The Other Guys, but he was awesome as Ken. And you never know, that nom just might come with The Dark Knight Rises.

    Kevin Conroy’s voice kicks Christian Bale’s ass. Nah, I like Bale as an actor, but Conroy’s voice is just so macho it probably sneaks out of his bedroom at night and beats up criminals while he’s sleeping.

      Hahaha. Man, I need to go back and listen to that dude’s voice again. That’s some serious praise.

    No, surely George Clooney should have won this one! 😉

    YAY for Bale!! But I have a soft spot for Keaton too, yeah he needs a comeback already is right!

      Some day. There’s just no way that guy won’t have a comeback.

    Well, duh.

Drop that knowledge!
