Live-action and cartoons, features and serials, television shows and movies: Batman has starred in them all. Bob Kane and Bill Finger's Dark Knight debuted in the pages of ‘Detective Comics’ in 1939, and quickly made the transition to film and later to television. He’s not only one of the most popular comic-book heroes, he’s also one of the malleable; he’s been a camp icon (in Adam West’s series and film) and a menacing, shadowy avenger (in Tim Burton and later Christopher Nolan’s interpretations). After Christian Bale’s extremely successful tenure as the character, the next man to play Batman will be Ben Affleck, when he co-stars in next year’s ‘Batman v Superman.’

  • Notable Appearances:
  • Batman (1966-1968)
  • Batman (1989)
  • Batman Begins (2005)
  • The Dark Knight (2008)
  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
