Movie Series - Batman

The Batman film series refer to six superhero films based on the DC Comics character of the same name, all of which have been financed and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. The first series of films, directed by Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher, was released between 1989 and 1997, consisting of Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin. After the critical failure of Batman and Robin, the franchise was rebooted in 2005 with a new series of films that presently consists of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, both directed by Christopher Nolan. In the film series, Batman has been portrayed by Michael Keaton (Batman and Batman Returns), Val Kilmer (Batman Forever), George Clooney (Batman & Robin) and Christian Bale (Batman Begins and The Dark Knight). Development for the first Batman film started as far back as 1979, when the film rights were purchased by producers Michael Uslan and Benjamin Melniker. It was Uslan's wish to make a dark and serious film, but he and Melniker were turned down by various film studios (among them were Columbia Pictures, United Artists and Universal Pictures). The Batman film was finally set up at Warner Bros. in late 1981.

1 I was just thinking about the time I went to see The Dark Knight in IMAX with my dad. I thought the movie was great, but my dad hated it. He thought it was too violent. I was a bit baffled by my that, as it was only a PG-13 movie, so I had no idea what he was talking about. I later found out that dad had literally seen nothing of Batman since the comics he read in the 1950s and the Adam West show. It must have been quite a jarring experience! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on February 27, 2014, 11:27 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I myself won't judge Ben Affleck's Batman until I see his performance (because, keep in mind, many people complained about Michael Keaton when he was chosen as Batman). -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on September 1, 2013, 10:42 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 When casting for the Batman movies, do they just pick a name out of a hat? -- Submitted By: (JayD) on August 29, 2013, 12:11 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Not optimistic about Ben Affleck. I'm not going to vote that as a BTF moment yet because there's a small possibility he might pull it off. I still think they should have given Batman a rest for a while and given other superheroes a chance. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 27, 2013, 11:26 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Ben Affleck will be Batman! What was going through their heads when they went with that casting option? Just as i thought with George clooney, he's more than capable of pulling off Bruce Wayne but not so sure about Batman. I suppose I'll only see two actors as Batman, campy version Adam West and Michael Keaton. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 26, 2013, 8:17 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 It's hard to say what the future holds. The media was trying to tie this into Batman by reporting rumors that this guy dyed his hair and called himself The Joker, but law enforcement officials say that info was completely false. You're absolutely right that this sicko's actions shouldn't color people's perceptions on Batman, but unfortunately that seems to have happened. WB is pulling advertisement for TDKR for the time being and Nolan has released a statement. The word prior to the massacre was that WB was planning an immediate Batman reboot like Sony did with Spiderman, but I wonder if that's going to change now. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 21, 2012, 3:12 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Yes, the tragedy is sick, but I don't think the whole franchise of movies is tainted because of one crazy individual. I did see the third movie and didn't like it as much as the first two, so I think it was a good time to close this Batman series and I hope they let the series rest for a while before rebooting it up again. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 21, 2012, 12:44 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 The senseless Dark Knight Rises massacre today has really cast a pall over the film and the franchise in general. WB would be wise to let this movie franchise rest for a long time. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 21, 2012, 1:23 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I'm kind of worried that when the Nolan series ends, WB might be tempted to go campy again to be "different". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 16, 2012, 8:08 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Series of boning and unboning, like with the James Bond series. The Adam West version of the show was so campy and bad, it was just embarrasing. The Tim Burton directed movies were so damn good, especially the first. The Joel Schumacher films should be burned, and eliminated from everybody's minds. The latest films are pretty good (not as epic as Burton's films, of course). Plus Christian Bale giving Batman a raspy deep voice actually doesn't bother me much (consider it this way, Batman would be throwing off his voice so nobody can say "Hey, that sounds like Bruce Wayne"). -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on July 24, 2011, 1:22 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Boned when Michael Keaton and Tim Burton left, to be replaced by Val Kilmer/George Clooney and Joel Schumacher. Batman Forever was too campy and suffered from the too many villains (the same thing that hurt Spiderman 3) and being more known for its soundtrack than movie. Batman and Robin was just a bomb, no matter how you slice it. Wisely, they left the series alone for a while so people could forget how badly it ended and came back with the Christopher Nolan movies, which are, in my opinion, some of the best superhero/comic book movies to ever be released. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 22, 2011, 2:47 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
12 IMO Michael Keaton will alway be the best Bruce Wayne/Batman. Unfortunately Michael Keaton hasn't really had any good roles since. Adam West more campy than anything else. Val Kilmer was believable as batman but not Bruce Wayne. George Clooney was more believable as Bruce than Batman. I just flat out don't like Christian Bales Batman with the stupid deep snarling voice, sounds more like he's the villain. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 21, 2011, 12:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

16 Even though they tried to kill Batman with horrendous movie sequels, lame comic stories, and arnold swartzennegar, you just can't kill the Bat. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on January 30, 2011, 6:13 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

19 My favorite is still the 1966 "Batman" movie with the television cast. Gotta love shark repellent and Lee Meriweather as Catwoman. -- Submitted By: (msweller) on May 31, 2009, 7:25 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
20 This series boned when Danny DeVito portrayed the Penguin. It deboned with Batman Begins and Dark Knight. Should the latest two movies even be considered to be in the same series at the first ones??? -- Submitted By: (rick283) on May 17, 2009, 9:23 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
