Who played Batman? Here’s the list

Do you remember who played Batman over the years?

I remember the Batman of old. No, not 1966 old, but when it was huge in Hollywood when I was younger. Michael Keaton was Batman then. He did a great job. But Jack Nicholson as the Joker had to be my favorite.

As years passed, as did the leading men who played the cloaked superhero.

Today news was announced that Ben Affleck will be taking the baton from Christian Bale as the next Batman.

How will he do? He’s a big star so it’s not too much of a surprise. But it’ll be see how the stars mesh with the new cast of characters. My favorite still has to be Jack Nicholson as the Joker. Cinema gold right there.

Here are all the Batman movies with their leading characters so you’re armed with some watercooler knowledge when you head to work.
