He looks like he smirks a bit when he says I am Batman

wow, but it's seriously is about the suit.. thank god they changed it.. because that suit makes even Christian Bale look like an idiot in a batman suit.. LoL

No wonder Val Kilmer's batman was so bad, it's the suit.. If the suit looks silly on your face it doesn't matter how good the performance --> batman fails..

I'm sorry but no amazing performance can get pass the suit.. look at Ben Affleck as DareDevil.. get the suit wrong and it's over, nothing can save it..

so it's a double edge sword, it works both ways, you need good suit and good actor..

Awesome. No wonder he got the part.

Bale did a great job as both Batman and his alter ego, Bruce Wayne.

The only let down was the voice.

I really didn't have any problem with his voice, don't get why people hate it so much.
Tskales  +   310d ago
He sounds like a crack addict.
Kurylo3d  +   310d ago
crack addicts are scary. Batman is scary...
FamilyGuy  +   310d ago
He sounds like a man that's masking his voice so he isn't recognized while in costume. The voice makes sense and even in every batman cartoon he's had a gritty voice that differed from his Bruce Wayne voice.

I don't see the problem.

The fact that his Batvoice sounds like he swallowed glass?
cyclindk  +   310d ago
I think we'd all just have liked for the animated batman's voice actor to play as batman if he fit the role, but the only way that would really be possible is if they made a fully "digital" cg rendered character in a live action film using his voice... do it!
DARK WITNESS  +   310d ago
would you like he do a Kermit the frog voice?
lastofgen  +   310d ago
I dug the voice.

That cowl made him look a little bit chubby. Did Val Kilmer also look fat in Forever?
Yi-Long  +   310d ago
Yeah, but in Kilmer's case, the suit wasn't really to blame for looking chubby.
shaun mcwayne  +   310d ago
I think he was chubby because he had just finished that movie were he was real thin, then got the batman role and had to beef up fast, they made a joke that the movie could be call fatman till bale shaped up a bit.

Too bad Kevin Conroy doesn't have the Batman look... His voice alone, IS Batman!!!

I already figured it out, they make a totally realistic CG rendered batman to play in the live action film where everyone else is a real actor. Bam, perfect batman with the perfect voice.
cell989  +   310d ago
maybe he should dub for Ben Affleck
StarWarsFan  +   308d ago
I think Christian Bale was a decent Batman. But I think he may have been a better Bruce Wayne than he was a Batman; only because of his voice at certain times that made his mouth a sight of annoyance at a point.
