Bale is not a bad actor, but his snarling voice totally ruined the Dark Knight movies.

Affleck is also not a bad actor, and he will most likely not ruin the movie with a stupid snarling voice.

Completely agree, The Dark Knight is an amazing film, but Bale made a terrible Batman. I'm sure I'll get a load of disagrees, but anyone who knows the Batman character outside of the Nolan films will know that he wasn't right. But this is more due to Nolan than Bale, the same goes for The Joker, Heath Ledger did a brilliant job, and the film was so good because of him, but it really wasn't a decent interpretation of The Joker. Again, The Dark Knight was nothing short of amazing, but it just wasn't a good Batman film.

Practically everyone knows Batman outside of the Nolan films. Lol He's quite popular you know.

Saying Bale was a bad Batman because of his voice is silly.

@Retro, I'm not saying he's bad because of his voice, I'm saying he's bad because he didn't suit the role.

RetrospectRealm2359d ago

I was confused because ChrisW said the voice ruined it and you said you "Completely agree" with him.

What are you talking about lol Bale is The Dark Knight...

Bale easily beats Ben Affleck. This guy is so effeminate, he fits in bad love movies but not in a manly role such as batman.
