I think Bale is a terrific actor but the role didn't require him to summon too much talent. It's a straight role and he played it fine, but so could a lesser actor IMO.

I liked the voice. It's a billionaire dressed as a superhero. Any guy in a attempt to change his voice would do the same thing. It almost made it more realistic.

He doesn't want anyone to recognize his voice because he is kind of famous. Seems reasonable.

A) The voice got progressively more cartoonish as the movies came out.

B) By Rises everyone and their grandmother seemed to know he was really Bruce Wayne so it didn't make any sense that he would use the voice with people who knew who he was.

Kevin Conroy did a great job of having a distinct Wayne and Batman voice without going way overboard like Chris. It was just Bale hamming it up as he has done for much of his career.

Again it's really really stupid that Batman and Superman exist in the same universe. Reaaaaally stupid.

We're done with Nolan's 'realism' approach to the Batman mythos. Now it's time to Zack Snyder aka Joel Schumacher 2.0 to give us his vision.

Apparently Affleck is signed for MULTIPLE Batman movies beyond Superman/Batman. Are they hoping he is going to be their Robert Downey Jr and finally hep them compete with Marvel? I see this exploding in their face rather spectacularly.

Twist it whichever way you want, the fact is every major character in Rises knew Batman's 'secret' identity yet he insisted on using the throat cancer patient voice with them. Made absolutely no sense. He wasn't trying to hide his 'secret' identity. He was just Bale being Bale- a ham.

As I've said several times in this thread- WB was wooing him a few years ago to direct the Justice League movie before the writers' strike. They even offered him a Daredevil reboot where he would star and direct. I think they will use Superman vs Batman as a launching pad for the JL franchise and hand the reigns over to him to be the director and continue playing Batman.

I honestly don't see a "launching pad" in a movie directed by Snyder and written by Goyer (again). They need to work on that damn script and character development a lot more or else they are basically doing another Transformers.

This Batman/Superman idea is just turrible, seems like Warner Brothers is just desperate to get Superman to ride the coattails of the Batman franchise success.

Probably end up ruining both. Marvel wins...again.
