    maybe trilogy was better but you cannot conclude that BaleBat was better. Bataffleck’s charm, voice, suit, story, attitude and Alfred were of no match. Bataffleck can crush BaleBat all day.

    Christopher Nolan's story and genius direction and Heath Ledger's potrayal of joker made Dark Knight remarkable..If only combat and action choreography of the movie was great, it would have been cherry on the top...That's the reason Affleck's Batman was liked by many fans even though story of BvS (lets exclude Josstice shit League) was not great as Dark Knight.

    Imo, bvs actors really did their best. But the plot is one of the cringiest shit I watched.

    What about the fact that Bale's Batman doesn't kill, while Ben's Batman kills multiple people in BvS

    Ben Affleck is a good actor so the problems with his character and story isn’t really his fault. I never liked Batman in BVS because the conflict wasn’t fair. In captain America civil war there is no clear winner in the conflict, both Steve and Tony are right and wrong but in BVS Batman just comes across as a fucking villain. He is the one that wants to kill Superman and Superman just tries to defend himself.

    The trilogy was way better than B&S, so this helped a lot Bale. If we compare just actors, I prefer Affleck.
    Note: In Justice League, Affleck was not so good as B&S.

    Nolans Batman Trilogy is something that is truly legendary. it will go down in history of film and be watched 25 years from now with the same love as when it was in the theater. truly remarkable

  • Bankai Bullett

    Bale's Bat is clearly the best version of the character, however....
    The combat skills and voice modulator from Affleck's Bat are actually better in my opinion.
    Bale's combat just didn't fit, where as Affleck's Bat was just about as brutally efficient as I can picture Batman being. It was actually awesome to watch.
    As for the voice... while I liked Bale's voice in 'Begins', it became a little TOO hardcore a version of itself in 'Knight' and 'Rises'.
    Affleck's voice modulator would've solved that problem AND tech like that wouldn't have been out of place in the NolanVerse.
    TL;DR - Give Bale's Batman the combat and voice from Affleck's Bat... that would be the best live-screen Batman you could get. EVER.

    It's the realistic approach of the nolan to vigilante justice that sold batman to me. I don't care much about comic book batman.

  • Daniel Keller
    Daniel Keller 3 days ago

    Affleck. He is more of the sort of Batman type guy that got me into it. The reason is that he researches weaknesses in his enemies before he goes into fighting. I'm actually a Superman fan and he surprised me. Just the way he fought so brutally like similarly to the Arkhamverse. Yes he may have killed some people, but it was during fights for self defense. It was also the era too where not everyone was good or you could trust. Ya gotta give him good pointers.

    michael8985 6 days ago

    I like both think I prefer been Affleck version where Batman a bit more dirty using guns and stuff. I think the scripts were shit for ben thou that's why movies sucked would liked to have seen him did a straight bat man movie

  • OffenFeind
    OffenFeind 6 days ago

    Lol imagine smoking so much crack you prefer the Bale Batsuit over the Affleck Batsuit. Bale's looks like Batman hasn't eaten in 3 weeks. It's not intimidating or imposing, which is the whole point. I'd shit my pants if Affleck's Batman was in front of me.

  • Nicholas Campitiello

    Affleck is so much better than Christian Bale for so many reasons:
    1: His body physique is so much better than bales.
    2: Ben Affleck didn’t have to do a stupidly deep voice.
    And by the way they’re comparing Batman’s not movies

  • M Sammy

    Michael Keaton gave the best comic book portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman, but Christian Bale's role as Bruce Wayne/Batman was by far the most realistic and gritty.

  • Andi Muh Nur Ichsan

      Nothing really new was delivered in Suicide Squad in terms of Batman, and in Josstice League, the story and tone for Batman was completely changed from what was set up and was essentially an entirely different Batman.

    Ben Affleck had too much beer 🍺 his belly in a muscled up suit gave us the fatman🤣🤣he looks ridiculous asking Henry if he bleeds, would’ve been a better question, if he asked do you drink🍻since he crashed the bat mobile in the man of steel, there was no cop on the scene to give him a DUI.
