Who Is the Strongest Batman According to Movies?

Ben Hall, Editor

Batman has had multiple live-action appearances between 1966 and 2022. In honor of Robert Pattinson dawning the cowl, a breakdown of each Batman as done with Spider-Man in the previous article would be quite a neat idea. Just be aware there will be major spoilers for all Batman live-action movies except The Batman, simply because I have not seen it yet.

Adam West (Batman: the Movie – 1966)

Adam West is the first live-action caped-crusader. First appearing in the 1966 series with a movie released that same year, West’s portrayal is quite… odd. The suit is very weird-looking with a suit design that looks extremely cheesy. The range of this Batman’s villains was also quite large, including the Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, and Riddler. Adam West’s Batman is not as powerful as the newer great detectives, but he laid the foundation for some of the greatest super-hero movies in history.

Micheal Keaton (Batman – 1989, Batman Returns – 1992)

From 1989 to 1992, Micheal Keaton was deemed the Caped Crusader. Taking on the Joker, Penguin, and Catwoman easily, this Batman is regarded as one of the best on this list. Keaton’s Batman is really powerful, and quite intelligent as well. His suit is also really cool in general. Also, Keaton’s Batmobile is the best, hands down.

Val Kilmer (Batman Forever – 1995)

Val Kilmer takes the cowl next in 1995. In my opinion, this Batman is quite underrated. He has cool armor, cool gadgets, and a cool car. On top of that, he even outsmarted Two-Face and the Riddler! And to top it off, he made Robin his sidekick to help take down Two-Face and Riddler.

George Clooney (Batman & Robin – 1997)

In arguably the worst Batman movie among fans, George Clooney takes the role of the Dark Knight in 1997. He, Robin, and Batgirl all find a way to take down Bane, Poison Ivy, and Mr. Freeze. The movie was quite weird in my opinion, but it was not that bad. Clooney’s suit was not that bad, either.

Christian Bale (Batman Begins – 2005, The Dark Knight – 2008, The Dark Knight Rises – 2011)

Christian Bale was considered one of the best Batmen after his trilogy. He has an awesome car, awesome gadgets, and awesome armor. He was aslo able to take down Ra’s Al Ghul, Scarecrow, Joker, Two-Face, and Bane. Bale’s Batman is definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Ben Aflleck  (Batman v. Superman – 2016, Suicide Squad – 2016, Justice League – 2017, Justice League Snyder Cut – 2021)

Ben Affleck, or Batfleck, is the Dark Knight for the Justice League. I do not remember much from these movies, but Batfleck’s Batman is quite resourceful. He always has quite a lot of gadgets on him, along with a pretty sweet car. AND he is the only Batman to apparently have a superpower: being rich. That is, according to him.

Robert Pattinson (The Batman – 2022)

The latest addition to the Batmen is Robert Pattinson’s Batman. Now, I may not have seen the movie for myself yet, but from what I heard, Pattinson’s take on the role is supposed to be incredible. His take is supposed to show more of the detective side of Batman rather than the vigilante side. I will post a movie review when I have actually seen the movie for more details later on.
