Bale is the superior actor, and plays both sides of the coin better than Keaton did imo.

That said, Keaton didn't need to put on the scary voice to do a good Batman voice.

Bale is better in general, imo.

IMO, Bale is the best overall Bruce Wayne/Batman
Keaton is the best Batman, but he sucks at being Wayne
Kilmer was the best Bruce Wayne, but his Batman was way, way to campy

Keaton is the best Batman in live-action IMO. But he is also the worst Bruce Wayne in live-action.
Bale is the best Bruce Wayne in live-action. And his Batman is the second best Batman in live-action (first being Keaton).
Overall, Bale is better due to him being good as both Bruce Wayne and Batman while Keaton was only good as Batman.

It seems to be half and half as far as Bale goes. Most others I've seen think he's a terrible actor, whether it be as Batman (particularly his voice as Batman), Bruce Wayne, etc. But I agree with what most of this thread thinks.

Bale is so much better, as both Bruce and Batman.

He did a good job as Batman he was just a lousy Batman.Bale is really the only true actor to play Batman the reason?
Keaton made a good Batman but sucked as Bruce Wayne.
Kilmer was bad as batman but was very good as Bruce Wayne
Clooney sucked in BOTH roles.
Bale was excellent in his portrayel of BOTH Bruce Wayne and Batman. wink

Bale is great at both roles, but his Batman voice gets annoying in TDK. In Begins it was great.

Keaton was the best straight-up Batman of them all, imo. He had the cool, "mystery" factor that I love. With that said, his Bruce Wayne was very out-of-character.

Kilmer's Batman was pretty corny, but he captured the emotion of Bruce Wayne well, imo.

Clooney was just bad at everything.

I'd say Christian Bale. His performances as both Bruce Wayne/Batman were spot on.

Keaton wasn't so interesting as Bruce Wayne, but made for a decent, and some-what psychotic Batman.

^ Agreed with Bat Dude that Clooney was awful at everything.

Keaton was my favourite Batman. And his look pacticularly looked spot on.
Kilmer was a good Bruce. But his and Clooney's Batman were terrible.
Bale's Batman is a gritty realistic version. His voice made sense because people would be able to voice track him otherwise. I always laughed at the other Batmen having the exact same voice as Bruce.

But Keaton's Batman knew when to shutup when kicking ass.

Yeah I agree with what most people are saying, Keaton as Bruce Wayne I always found boring as hell. Bale is able to keep me entertained as both Wayne and Batman.

You gotta seriously take into account just how heavy & bulky Keaton's Bat costume was.

Keaton could only walk stiffly in it, not run. He couldn't crouch at all & could only kick stiff legged. And lastly let's not forget the dude couldn't turn his head either.

In my opinion he played a bloody good Batman regardless of all the restrictions he was handicapped by.

I feel it should be pointed out that Clooney is in every way a great actor in his own right. Just wasn't the right kind of guy who should've been hired to play Batman..
