List Criteria: Movies that star Batman, both live action and animated.

After the release of The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Nolan released the reins of the current Batman franchise after making three of the greatest of the Batman films of all time. Or were they? This list of the greatest Batman films ever is here to declare, in order, which of all Batman movies is really the top Batman film of all time. How can you possibly rank such masterpieces? It's easy - consider the mood, directing, actors, and storylines that the movie creators were able to capture in their films. Which of all of the Batman movies do you feel was most faithful to the original comics or more entertaining than the others? It's unlikely that anyone's answer would be a chronological list, given that the films have continued to build on themselves over time.

Batman has been one of the most popular comic book characters to make the jump to movies. This list has every adventure of the Dark Knight tallied by preference, from the Adam West all the way up to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy with Christian Bale, including the final film, 2012's The Dark Knight Rises. It also includes the animated Batman movies that became popular in the mid-90s. But what is the best Batman movie? Or have you ever wondered how many Batman movies are there? This list will answer both those questions!

Batman films are so iconic and popular that there's even a whole genre of Batman fan films! Many other cultures have translated Batman films into their own languages too – Urutan film Batman is a popular international film.  FYI there's another list on Ranker of Best Batman Comics.
