Yes, there's lots of debate. If Ledger was still alive consensus would be Nicholson>Ledger.

His voice was certainly terrible. People idolize actors so much. Bale is easily replaceable. Had Bale stared in Batman and Robin people would have said Bale was a terrible choice for Batman instead of blaming the director and writers.

It didn't sound cool or batman-y. It sounded like a kid calling his high school and mimicking his grandpa in order to cut classes.


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.

Exactly.. He played it a bit over the top but Batman/Bruce Wayne is over the top.. he's a billionaire hell bent on revenge and seeks his revenge dressed up as a Bat-man. Him having a scratchy voice makes a lot of sense to me.. Could you imagine if someone heard him talk and be like.. you're Bruce Wayne aren't you.. If "Robin" can figure it out by a look he got from Bruce when he was a kid.. I don't think the disguised voice is a bad way to go.

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.

Bane, Talia, Selina Kyle, 'Robin', and eventually Commissioner Gordon all knew who he really was and he still insisted on talking like he had stage 4 throat cancer when he was around them. Didn't make a lick of sense. Must've been really confusing for them

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.
