Batman's Dramatic Evolution Over 70 Years on Our Screens

By Sam Gibbs on at

With the Dark Knight Rises almost upon us, let's look back at how Batman's changed over the last 70+ years. He's gone from being a campy animated hero, to the equally campy lycra-clad Batman of the 1960s; then through the terribly cheesy Keaton/Kilmer/Clooney-era, to the growling Dark Knight we know and love today. That's quite an evolution over the years.

I have to say, even though 90's Batman broke records and actually made money, he was far too cheesy for me. The current Dark Knight is way and above my fave, apart from that hilariously gruff, I'm-trying-to-sound-as-deep-as-possible voice. Which was your favourite Batman of all time, animated, camp, cheesy or gruff? [NY Film Academy via Mashable]
