    Christian Bale nailed it on the head when the second movie was released, he showed some strong acting and emotions as if he really was Bruce Wayne. The dark knight was the best movie out of the 3 movies, due to Heath Ledger’s breathtaking performance as the joker. Not to mention that Michael Caine also played Alfred very well. The problem with the recent batman movies (to me) is that Jeremy irons was... how can I say it... not really a good butler, because!!! He didn’t dress like one or act like one, I mean the guy mad Ben Affleck a cup of tea and did no other duties throughout the whole justice league movie and I feel he’s a bit young for and Alfred role. I will say that Ben did play Batman in an interesting way, but not as good as Christian Bale. Overall I think all 3 Batman movies are more serious and interesting as Batman takes his time to find out the details of the crime, but the justice league and BatmanVSsuperman are more for the younger audience who love action more then patience. And I just want to point out that stupid scene cough! cough! Batman climbing the walls in BvS that inaccurate shit made me laugh. It’s just my opinion so... yeah.
    P.s do tell me what you guys think, cause I’m a marvel/DC nerd 😂😂🤟🏻

    Christian Bale is a Reality version of Batman an made for Men, Ben Affleck is an Action batman for the entertainment of nerds.

  • Arpan Saha
    Arpan Saha 4 days ago

    The character has been chosen wisely... I personally didn't like Ben Affleck as Batman, he didn't carry intelligence, his body language was too shaky, low in confidence, lack of Intel gathering, using gun, depending on other people than himself are not Batman characteristics... His attitude was noway near to Batman... Bale has exact mixture of rudeness roughness toughness seriousness and intelligence in his attitude... Batman never been bulky figure what Ben Affleck portraied...

      No but the fact that his Batman kills already causes him to lose who’s better as Batman. And yes that one thing really does matter.

    you cant really compare the two. They were two different styles of movies. Bale was a realistic batman in a dark world, Affleck was more of a comic book batman, DC's version of the Avengers. two completely different movies.

    If you think it's not batman for him failing to see through Talia, you clearly haven't read the comics much. Take a nice look at Batman Death and the maidens and tell me that again.

    Christian Bale is undoubtedly the best. He should have been the batman in Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017). Bale is the best.

    • Mr Javiex

      Are you fucking kidding me? Bale could barely face the Joker's dogs, I doubt very much that he can face a Parademon or even Superman. Affleck will always be the best adapted Batman in the cinema

    Ben Affleck is trash asf. Idek why they chose him for the role. Christian Bale is the goat. Gained over 100 pounds after his role in the Machinist to play Batman. Bruh is Batman. Foh, 5-0 Bale.

    • shassitojn 49
      shassitojn 49 7 days ago

      Mr Javiex he’s on the Joel Schumacher Batman level. And he sure as hell isn’t as good as Bale.

    • shassitojn 49
      shassitojn 49 7 days ago

      Mr Javiex Ok, no. We actually got time to develop Rachel and Harvey, and learned about them as characters. Hell Rachel got a whole movie BEFORE the Dark Knight. It’s not too far off to believe that that would kind of fuck him up. It gives Batman um... AN ARC. We know Batman is sad about his parents dying, we don’t need Zack Snyder to give us a scene full of terrible dialogue. Superman should have just straight up said “I don’t wanna fight you, Lex wants me to fight you and if I don’t he’ll kill my mother.” What if Batman were beating the shit out of the Joker, and the Joker said Martha? According to Zack Snyder, a pretentious film student, that’s what would happen because the plot demands it. So no, the 8 years Batman takes off doesn’t detract from his character in fact it adds to it. There’s no excuse for the Martha scene. Try again.

    • Mr Javiex
      Mr Javiex 7 days ago

      @shassitojn 49 The films of DC could be bad but Ben Affleck managed to stand out as one of the best adapted Batman (From Michael Keaton)
