The Batman of Each Generation

If there was ever a more iconic character, we’d like to know who you think it is! Batman has been around for years, and over those years he has been played and voiced by a wide variety of people. Each actor has brought something new and exciting to the Batman character.

With that in mind, we are going to take a look at the Batman of each generation. From the campiness of Adam West’s Batman to the animated goodness of Will Arnett’s Batman in The LEGO Batman movie, we have a wide selection to choose from. Check out the Batman of each generation below.

Adam West

Of all the Batman actors, Adam West is probably one of the most controversial. He brought a campy style to Batman in the 1960s and you either loved it or hated it. Both sides have some strong opinions about West’s portrayal of the caped crusader, but the thing is – we are still talking about it over 50 years later!

With that being addressed, West did give us an excellent tongue-in-cheek take on Batman. He grew a huge fan base from this role and he even helped guide the direction the comic books took in the 60s.

We have come a long way since West’s Batman, but we may not have had Batman on the big screen if it wasn’t for him.
