Since ‘Batman’ has hit the big screen, there’s only been one actor who has perfected the character – at least for me, and that’s Michael Keaton. Maybe that’s because he was under the direction of one of Hollywood’s most creative genious in recent years – Tim Burton. Val Kilmer didn’t come close, and George Clooney was just thrown in there for the female draw. But yet I was still entertained by the the third and fourth movies.

Now, comes possibly the next big actor in Hollywood. An actor to fill the wings lost in the last two. Christian Bale is the new Dark Knight in “Batman Begins.
