The Best Batman and Bruce Wayne Portrayals

"Where does he get those wonderful toys?" All the Batmans and Bruce Waynes in one place.  Vote up your favorite portrayals.  Batman has taken on many incarnations since his creation both in the comics and films.  From the camp and hokey: Adam West and George Clooney; to the darker Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan interpretations of Christian Bale and Michael Keaton. Many of these actors are accomplished in their own right, and have made an indelible mark on the screen, Oscar Winners and Nominees. Batman is an iconic part of American fiction, and one of the first comic book movies to hit the screen. A challenge that presents big shoes to fill for any actor. As well as being a double role of Batman and Bruce Wayne, pensive, moody, thoughtful, detective, playboy billionaire? Fighter, martial artist, inventor? Who did it right? Not included are the voice actors, so there is no Batman the Animated Series or the Lego Movie, with Will Arnett.  Who was the Best Batman actor? Who was the Best Bruce Wayne actor? Vote up below.
