The Batman’O’Meter – The Range of Batman Performances

So here’s something I’ve been thinking about…The evolution of Batman in the cinema.

The diagram below is something I’ve put together to try and show how different actors have approached the character of the Dark Knight.

From left (camp dancing Adam West batman) to the darker sides of the caped crusader, I have both Val Kilmer and George Clooney shifting to the left of Michael Keaton’s cinematic batman.

Christian Bale’s performance then shifted the character far to the right, darker side of the graphic in 2005 with Batman Begins.

Which ultimately leaves us with the question about where Ben Affleck’s Batman will sit on this chart…

From my reads on the trailer, Im expecting something much nearer Christian Bale’s, if not even darker.

What do you think?
