Batman is a very popular superhero. He's been around since 1939. His creators are Bob Kane and Bill Finger.

Bob Kane is the one who came up with the plan to have a superhero called Batman. The reason for creating was Batman was likely to continue the superhero fad that Superman started. Although Bob Kane intended for Batman to be popular I doubt that he knew that his character would become one of the most beloved characters from any franchise. Bob Kane's main role in the Batman franchise was to be the artist of the comic books. His drawings are some of the greatest comic drawings of all time. His visual talents were amazing and were one of the main things that made Batman such a great franchise.

Although generations of people thought that Bob Kane was Batman's only creator the character has two creators. Bill Finger was the writer of the original Batman comic books. One of the best things about the Batman TV shows and films are the interesting plots. I think that the writers of the Batman shows and films were inspired by Bill Finger's spectacular writing skills. Bill Finger was one of the greatest comic book writers of all time.

Batman Ninja is a 2018 Batman film. My review of the film is about the film's English dub.

The film is about Batman getting sent to Japan's past. He teams up with Catwoman and his regular helpers to stop the Joker. The Joker is being aided by Gorilla Grodd, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, the Penguin, Poison Ivy, and Deathstroke. Batman realizes that the people of Japan's past consider Batman to be a prophecy hero so Batman tries to live up to the hype.

The film's plot is pretty interesting and unique. Although having a film that's about Batman and Joker's rivalry is very typical nearly every other element of the plot is one of a kind. The film should of been longer, because it has so many characters. Despite a length issue the plot is good.

The film's characters are mostly good. The one major character that I wasn't a fan of was the Joker. Tony Hale is a talented actor, but he shouldn't of been hired to do a high pitched Joker voice. I had a hard time standing the Joker.

Batman has been the star of various shows and films. In addition to that Batman has been played by several different actors. This list is about my ranking of the live action versions of Batman.

8. George Clooney (Batman and Robin)

Despite how hated the film was I think it's lots of fun. However I'm not a fan of George Clooney's Batman. Since the film was a odd mix of action and comedy it was hard for Mr. Clooney to play Batman well. A lot of critics think that Mr. Clooney wasn't enjoying his role in the film which I agree with. Thankfully he's very kind about it and has even said he was sorry which was very nice of him.

7. Robert Lowery (Batman and Robin Movie Serial)

Adam West is actually the third live action Batman. There were two movie serials that came out in the 1940s. Sadly both movie serials are too outdated to be exciting. Because of that Mr. Lowery didn't get a chance to shine as Batman. Despite the movie serial's outdated qualities it did help Batman become more popular so Mr. Lowery's version of Batman does have some importance despite me not being a fan of the movie serials.

Several actors have played Batman. There have been over five live action versions of Batman as well as various voice actors. People often discuss about which Batman actor is the best. I think that the best is Adam West.

1. Adam West stood out more than any other Batman actor

Adam West got to play Batman in a show that lasted over 100 episodes. That gave him plenty of time for his version of Batman to be memorable. Later on he got to voice Batman in cartoons which gave him a chance to play various versions of Batman. All of his performances as Batman are a memorable treat.

The other live action Batman actors had the problem of not being to truly shine. Michael Keaton played Batman in 2 films which primarly focused on the villains, Val Kilmer was in 1 film which is mostly remembered for the Riddler instead of Batman, and George Clooney's Batman film is memorable for the ice puns. Although Christian Bale got to have a very well done leading role in Batman Begins he had to share screentime with various characters in the sequels. Also Ben Affleck hasn't been in a solo Batman film.

Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants is part of the Batman Unlimited film series. The film is made for kids. Despite that there's a lot of fun things for Batman fans of any age.

Plot Info

The plot focuses on a partnership between the Penguin and Mr. Freeze. They have a plan that involves turning other super villains into mutants. Batman, Damian Wayne, and Green Arrow try to save Gotham from Penguin and Mr. Freeze's mutants.

Due to being a film that's for young kids the plot is more about action than complexity. However that works out well here. This film is fun. It has plenty of enjoyably cartoonish energy and the antics of the villains' plans are pretty exciting. The film also has several funny moments.

Cast Info

Roger Craig Smith voices Batman in the film and he does a pretty good job. The most impressive voice performance comes from Dana Snyder who voiced the Penguin. Other talented voice actors including Troy Baker show up in the film.

”THE DARK KNIGHT” (2008) Review

In 2005, director/writer Christopher Nolan rebooted the Batman franchise with the highly successful movie, ”BATMAN BEGINS” that starred Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader. Both men have reunited three years later for a new story centered around Batman’s conflict with his greatest nemesis, Joker in this 2008 sequel called ”THE DARK KNIGHT”.

There has been a great deal of attention surrounding this movie. Many have not only praised it, claiming that it is better than the 2005 movie. But most of the word-of-mouth had centered around the late Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker, especially after his tragic death some six months before the film opened. When ”THE DARK KNIGHT” finally hit the theaters, many critics and fans expressed the belief that the positive word-of-mouth had been justified. Not only have many judged Ledger’s performance as the best in his career, others have claimed that the movie is probably the best Comic Book Hero movie ever made. I do not know if the Joker featured Heath Ledger’s best performance. As for the claim about ”THE DARK KNIGHT”...

I know that a lot of Batman fans would disagree with this, but I think that Batman and Robin is very overhated. Batman and Robin is a 1997 film that has become really hated by Batman fans. However I think that there's a lot of stuff in this film to like.

5. This film's versions of the heroes are well done.

I think that George Clooney's version of Batman actually works well. People have compared it to Adam West's Batman, but I think that it's good that there are things in common between them. Mr. Clooney has the same wholesome charm of Mr. West. Mr. Clooney's Batman took the silly stuff going on around them seriously and it led to a lighthearted and fun Batman.

Robin's rarely ever cool. Even a lot of the best versions of Batman have struggled to make Robin cool. However I like Chris O'Donnell as Robin. He acts like a punk, but a likeable and cool punk.

I also like Alicia Silverstone's version of Batgirl. She's like a edgier version of Batgirl from the 1960s' live action Batman show. This version of Batgirl is respectful and sweet to her uncle, but she's also a dangerous motorcycle lover. It's pretty cool.

This review is dedicated to Adam West, William Dozier, and all the wonderful people who helped make the show.

The first Batman show was just called Batman. The show started in 1966 and had 3 seasons as well as a film called Batman: The Movie (1966). There was also 2 animated films based on the show called Return of the Caped Crusaders (2016) and Batman vs. Two-Face (2017).

The Plot

Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson protect Gotham as the Dynamic Duo: Batman and Robin. The 2 heroes saved the city by themselves in the show's first 2 seasons, but Batgirl started helping them in the 3rd season. They battled the Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Riddler, and a bunch of new villains.

The show is often treated like an outdated goofy show that gets respect for nostalgia. However I think there are several other reasons to be a fan of the show other than nostalgia. I didn't grow up with this version of Batman so my true enjoyment of the show comes from what a good show it is. The show's comedic qualities were intentional. The show's corny antics are delightfully fun. 1 big element that keeps the show exciting is that the villains have such unique...

Scooby-Doo Meets Batman is a 2002 DVD that has the 2 episodes of Scooby-Doo that have Batman. The episodes were made in the 1970s.

The Plots

The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair has Scooby-Doo and his friends meeting Batman and Robin. They try to stop a crime involving a mysterious and new villain who has a money scheme. The episode also the Joker and Penguin who cause the heroes trouble in their Fun House.

The Caped Crusader Caper has Scooby-Doo and his friends teaming up with Batman and Robin again. The Joker and the Penguin plan on stealing Professor Flakey's flying suit.

I love the 2 episodes. Having the Scooby-Doo and Batman characters is a insanely fun idea. This version of the Batman characters is very corny and absurd which I personally love. The combination of Scooby-Doo's comedy and Batman's corniness is a delightfully eccentric experience. The plots may be simple, but the comedy in the episodes is great. The 2 episodes have nearly non stop jokes that are memorable and funny.

This review is dedicated to Adam West (my favorite Batman).

Batman vs. Two-Face is a 2017 animated film that is based on the classic 1966 Batman live action show ands is a sequel to the 2016 animated film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.

The Plot

Bruce Wayne's best friend (Harvey Dent) accidentally gets turned into a super villain called Two-Face. Batman and Robin try to stop Two-Face who has teamed up with Dr. Hugo Strange. Two-Face has a major crime set up involving several other Batman villains. Even Batman's secret identity is in danger.

The film has a great plot. The film is rated PG so it's okay for kids. The plot is more serious than I expected, but there's also plenty of fun comedy. The film is exciting, lighthearted, cool, and fun. It has the epic seriousness as well as goofy antics that make the Batman franchise so good.

The Cast

Adam West is my favorite Batman. He is a very nice and sweet Batman that I admire. He's also delightfully fun and goofy. This version of Batman isn't serious and harsh. He's a optimistic gentlemen who makes Gotham safer and happier.

This review is dedicated to Adam West: the best Batman of all time.

The New Adventures of Batman is a 1977 animated show. It was made by Filmation who also made the first He-Man television show.

Plot

Batman, Robin, Batgirl, and Bat-Mite protect Gotham City from the villains. Bat-Mite tries to be helpful, but often causes conflicts for the Dynamic Duo. Each episode had a lesson for the kids to learn.

This show is 40 years old. Back then plots were really simple and this show is proof of that. However the plots aren't bad. The show was meant for kids. 1 of the main reasons that the show works is for how enjoyably corny and silly the show is. In my opinion this show is even cornier than the live action Adam West show.

The Heroes

In this show Batman and Robin are voiced by Adam West and Burt Ward. Adam West is my favorite Batman. Mr. West was great at making Batman likeable and fun. This show's Batman is friendlier and less serious than other versions of Batman. I really like this show's lighthearted and fun Batman. Burt Ward did a good job at voicing Robin. Batgirl is forgettable, but okay. Bat-Mite has a...

”BATMAN BEGINS” (2005) Review

When Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the BATMAN franchise first made its debut during the summer of 2005, many critics and moviegoers hailed it as the second coming. They also viewed it as a vast improvement over the four films released between 1989 and 1997. Since then, ”BATMAN BEGINS” has been overshadowed by its 2008 sequel, ”THE DARK KNIGHT” and 2012's "THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS". After a recent viewing of the 2005 movie, I must admit that I have a deeper attachment for it.

”BATMAN BEGINS” was basically an origin tale about the scion of a wealthy Gotham City family, who endured a personal tragedy before become a costumed vigilante. The movie began in a Chinese person where Bruce Wayne was serving time for robbery. A mysterious man named Henri Ducard offered to arrange for Bruce’s freedom if the latter would consider joining his organization called the League of Shadows. Once Bruce began his training under Ducard’s tutelage, flashbacks revealed his childhood; his friendship with Rachel Dawes, the daughter of a family servant; his parents’ tragic deaths; and the murder of their...

Hi there! We are the Batman: Anarchy team, and we are looking to increase funding on our non-profit, original Dark Knight film. The film stands as a continuation to the amazingly successful and compelling Dark Knight Trilogy created by talented film director, Christopher Nolan.

THE STORY:

Batman: Anarchy is quite unique because it isn't just another Bruce Wayne story. Instead, we venture into the unknown, picking up where Nolan left off, with John Blake inheriting the Bat-cave and taking on the mantle of the caped crusader. Naturally, he won't be perfect at this as he lacks the discipline and training (by the League) that Bruce possessed. And ultimately, he will be forced to decide whether or not to remain The Batman or take on his own iconic persona.

It’s been eight long years since Heath Ledger's Joker captivated audiences and introduced the people of Gotham to a world without rules. Leaving many, including former psychiatrist, Harleen Quinzel, to wonder what became of the criminal mastermind following his capture at the end of The Dark Knight. When rumors of a secret prison surface, Harleen succumbs to the seductions of her alter ego,...

Hi, my name is Tom Sinclair. I'm an independent film-maker. I'm trying to get into the film business. I'm trying to do a tribute to the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy films. This film takes place 1 year after Dark Knight Rises. when the city is in chaos after death of batman. When robin found himself in the Batcave, appearing to have been hand selected by Bruce himself to take his place as Gotham's protector.

The Joker is arguably one of the greatest villains in pop culture history. The complete antithesis of Batman in almost every regard, many say he the hero's perfect adversary. His origins are shrouded in mystery, making it impossible to determine who he is and where he came from. This theory, however, could explain who he is, and why he is so obsessed with Batman.

Keep in mind, this is merely a fan theory.

The Joker, in reality, is Bruce Wayne's older brother. For story purposes, we'll call him Jack. Jack was born around 5-10 years before Bruce, and he seemed like a normal child at first. However, he started to show significant behavioral problems, such as being overly aggressive to other children and possibly killing animals. It could also be possible that Jack may have tried to harm Martha Wayne while pregnant with Bruce.

The Waynes decided to have Jack placed in a juvenile mental facility to try to get rid of him. Their influence in Gotham could've helped hide what they perceived as an embarrassment, and may have fabricated a story that Jack had died from an illness. Some years later, after Bruce is born, Thomas and Martha are killed.

No one knows what it's like-
to be the bad man-
to be the sad man-
behind blue eyes-
no one knows what it's like-
to be hated-
to be faded-
To telling only lies-
But my dreams, they aren't as empty-
as my conscience seems to be-
I have hours, only lonely-
my love is vengeance-
that's never free-

No one knows what it's like-
to feel these feelings-
like i do-
AND I BLAME YOU-
no one backs back as hard-
on their anger-
none of my pain and woe-
can show through-
but my dreams, they aren't as empty-
as my conscience seems to be-
i have hours, only lonely-
my love is cengeance-
That's never free-

When my fist clenches, crack it open-
before i use it, lose my cool-
when i smile, tell me some bad bews-
before i laugh, and act like a fool-
And if i swallow anything evil-
Put your finger down my throat-

Yes I know the dark knight rises is released this Friday and everyone who's anyone will be going now I don't want people hating on me for this so if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it at all. Anyway the reason I believe bruce wayne is going to die is because look Christopher Nolan is a smart filmmaker and as one he wants to do something that nobody else has ever done he wants to stun people at the ending of the dark knight rises so that no one ever forgets his trilogy which yes does sound a bit selfish but it's not look this is his last film he wants to go out on a high note and by doing this yeah he's probably gonna piss some hardcore fanboys off but Bruce wayne is a character that can be brought back from the dead because he is a fictional character and can have so many stories told about him and it would perfect a brilliant trilogy and in Christopher Nolan and all his cast,producers, screenwriters and crews minds be the perfect ending as well and Bruce wayne's death would be great well I mean if he sacrificed himself to save gotham city and died in the effort like superman did for metropolis against doomsday when he supposedly died in the comics after being...

Batman is a very dark character who I believe could be a very good character for an R rated film his Villians are violent they kill people in gruesome ways and Bruce also needs to be fucking his love interests and he hasn't done it yet why because it isn't appropriate for kids and that's really stupid and as for the cursing I wouldn't want them to do it every second obviously but it would be good and make the characters more serious and badass if the characters cursed in the batman reboot happens I want new Villians, the bat mobile,batarangs,the batwing,the bat motorcycles,a bat jet pack,a different type of suit for batman,the bat claw that batman swings on, and I want it to be rated R. So what do you guys think should a future batman movie have these things or not.

Christopher Nolan has absolutely bastardized the batman character and has ruined the batman universe by making it realistic I hatches realism with a passion a couple of years ago in an interview one of the producers batman begins said that Nolan didn't even want to give the scarecrow a mask are you serious could you really think that the scarecrows mask and costume are so corny that you wouldn't include them in the movie and the scarecrows mask and costume aren't corny at they are awesome and the mask that they had in the movie was absolute shit it was horrible looking. And in the dark knight he did something that has made me hate him forever he changed the joker that asshole had the absolute gall to change the greatest batman villian of all-time he completely neglected the joker's origin and character background he wasn't a crazy psychopath who decided to put make up on one day he was a gangster called the red hood who was accidentally knocked into a chemical vat at ace chemicals and he survived the accident because of his red hood mask which caused him to fall into madness and turn into a murdering psychopath not the other way around and not to mention two face another if my...

Ok, I hate the Hugo Strange/Catwoman rumours. Here's why: first of all I hate Hugo Strange as a villain. He has no villain name or costume, doesn't even LOOK cool, and is completly WEIRD. And Catwoman becouse didn't she already have a film in the reboot series (Catwoman was the only one not to feature Chris Nolan as the director)? Luckily, the movie will be filmed in Asia (bye bye Hugo Strange). That means a possible villain (if not, love interest) Talia Al Ghūl. In Batman Begins, we learn that, unlike Batman comics, when Rās Al Ghūl says he's "immortal" he means the roll of RAG is past on from master to apprentace and that means Talia may become the new Ras Al Ghūl.

But if filmed in a major city (Hong Kong for ex.) the villain my be an assassan like Deadshot. Possibly my favorite rumour of all time: Black Mask and Hush!!!

A cancelled Batman film, Superman vs. Batman was going to be the fifth batman film untill it was confirmed it wouldn't happen. But after the cancellation of 2013s reboot of 1997s JLA (Justice League: Mortal), Christopher Nolan, the man incharge of both Batman and Superman, Is considering making Superman/Batman: the Movie (AKA Superman vs. Batman). It will possibly the fight of the decade, even better than 2003s Freddy vs. Jason and the DC comics horror comic book god-awful sequel, Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash.

Despite the name THIS FILM WILL NOT BE BASED ON SUPERMAN/BATMAN the comic book but an issue of Batman that guest starred Superman where they fought. I'm not sure which one it was but you can buy the digital comic on www.dccomics.com/read

Based on the characters created by Jerry Siegel, Joe shushter and Bob Kane and writen by Grant Morrison.
