    I thought the Batvoice was MUCH better this time around. Sounded nasely and whiney in BB, but sounded like a growl in this one, which I think really fits well with the character.

    Agree with Buttmuch.

    I saw it last night (same theater as BM) and I would give it a sold 9.5/10. Did HL's Joker bring Tom Waits to anyone else's mind. I hadn't read anywhere that he based his interpretation on Wait, but it was a dead on impersonation of him.

    I loved it.

    Let's see...

    Michael Keaton = Crappy Wayne, God Bats
    Christian Bale = Crappy Bats, Good Wayne (his Bats voice is just pathetic, if only he had some mechnical device to augment his voice, it would have been better)
    Kevin Conroy = Great Wayne, Great Bats

    Conroy wins.

    Conroy only did a voiceover though. To me you can't really say he "portrayed" Batman the best. Maybe he sounded the best as Batman but portrayed?

    Ya, I think you'd have to say Batman: TAS Batman and Wayne, a combination of Conroy's voice and the animators efforts brought that to life.

    I like Bale the most, he's a fantastic Wayne and I enjoy him as Batman. I think what they do with his voice is good, it's so departed from Wayne's voice, aids in the cover. Keaton's voice sounded nice, but Batman and Keaton were very close in sound so one with a sharp ear might go, hmmm sounds like Bruce Wayne to me. I'm still amazed how Bale does either voice with how his natural one sounds.

    You could argue that, but just the force of that voice, with my love for that show, just bring to mind Conroy's voice whenever someone mentions batman

    I'm really gonna have to check the animated series out. Too many here are raving about it. I'm just not into modern cartoons and animation.

    That series and JLU are some of my favorite animated series ever. I belive someone on YouTube has every episode on there. I'll look for it when I get home

    Little fun fact: Kevin Conroy went to Julliard at the same time as Christopher Reeve......

    Yes you are. It's my fave cartoon of all time. Possibly my fave TV show of all time. Though, I don't think you can call a show from 1992 "modern" anymore

    Glad to hear more people speaking up about Bale's bat-voice, good to know I'm not the only one that's put off by it. His voice (as well as some other aspects of his performance) far too intense for what I think Batman should be.

    That's funny. It's his intensity that makes me love him as Batman. I still remember how cool it was to see him grab up Flass and question him.

    "Swear to me!"

    Still one of my favorite movie lines of all time.
