Robert Pattinson Vs. Christian Bale: Who Played The Better Batman


With so many actors now having played Batman, portrayals can now be compared based on thematic intention and tone, instead of by generation. It’s easy to make a comparison between Robert Pattinson in “The Batman” and Christian Bale in the “Dark Knight” trilogy, as they both depict the early years of the caped crusader in a way that is more grounded in reality than in fantasy.

When it comes to the numbers, it looks like Bale’s Batman is still in the lead, as he easily won a GameSpot poll about the best Batman with 66% of the 290,000 votes. Additionally, “The Dark Knight” holds a 94% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes to the 85% that “The Batman” has, and “The Dark Knight Rises” squeaks by it with an 87% as well.

However, it’s important to remember that this is only Pattinson’s first Batman film, and he hasn’t been included in many public polls, so it may only be a matter of time until he replaces Bale as the favorite Dark Knight. After all, some critics and fans are already calling him the best Batman.
