Poll: Who’s Your Favorite Batman Actor?

When “Justice League” debuts this weekend, Ben Affleck will make his return as the Caped Crusader, which first arrived in 2015’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

And when a new actor dons the pointy-eared cowl, it’s bound to draw comparisons to past Batmans/Bruce Waynes. For many, it’s the late Adam West who set the standard when he starred in ABC’s “Batman” series in the 1960s, embodying the superhero for generations to come.

A couple of decades later came Warner Bros.’ initial “Batman” film series, starring Michael Keaton in the Tim Burton-directed “Batman” and “Batman Returns” in 1989 and 1992, respectively. Val Kilmer took over the role, as the directing reins went to Joel Schumacher, for “Batman Forever” (1995), before George Clooney became Batman for “Batman & Robin” in 1997.

After the first series, a new millennia ushered in a new trilogy. Christian Bale starred in Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed movie series comprised of “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight,” and “The Dark Knight Rises” before Batfleck was introduced to the world, officially first announced in 2013 before making his debut in 2015.

Which actor played your favorite version of Batman? Do you prefer the brooding Bale, the comic West, the dashing Clooney, or someone else altogether? Weigh in below!

UPDATE: This poll has been closed, with Christian Bale taking the top spot.
