Wow, Tim Burton’s version of Batman turns 25 this year. It was the first movie I had ever seen in theatre and remains high on my list of favourites. Michael Keaton was the Batman, while the Joker was played by Jack Nicholson. Many have played the caped crusader since, Val Kilmer, George Clooney to name a couple and of course we can’t forget the early TV rendition played by Adam West. Who was your favourite Batman?
To me, Batman will always be Michael Keaton. No one has ever been able to portray the right mix of charisma and brokenness as Keaton. I think Ben Affleck might be able to pull off Bruce Wayne/Batman, but only time will tell.
