Batman isn’t the easiest of roles to fill. For one thing there’s the fans, who seem to hate anyone cast in the role before they’ve seen a scrap of footage. And then there’s the duality of the role. Any actor taking on this role has to have a vision (or a director with one) and also the sizeable talent required to pull off the double performance. Many have tried, but only a few have lived up to the task.
