As Christian Bale says in Batman Begins: "It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me." The same can be said for Batman actors, whose different portrayals aren't created equally. Every generation has its own version of the Caped Crusader, from the campy '60s era Adam West to the super gritty and serious post-9/11 Christian Bale.
And here—in light of the news that Robert Pattinson will be our next Batman—we take on the daunting task of ranking each of the most famous Batman actors (sticking only to the most well-known live-action portrayals). Here are the best Batman actors ranked from the obliviously bad (Ben Affleck) to the nippled (George Clooney).
