Over ten actors have now played Batman/Bruce Wayne in various films and series. The latest incarnation of the hero is Robert Pattinson. Now a new poll confirms which actor is the most popular Batman in America.
The poll is based on about 150,000 tweets across the United States. Based on this data it is determined which Batman is most popular for which state. The conclusion was very clear; In 23 of the 50 states, Michael Keaton is the most popular Batman.
Christian Bale is second with 18 states. The remaining nine states were split between Ben Affleck and Robert Pattinson. Surprisingly, Ben Affleck is more popular than Robert Pattinson in two of seven states for Pattinson.
Michael Keaton played Batman in only two films Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). Keaton’s avatar has become more popular over the years, and nostalgia plays a big part in his popularity.
The biggest reason why Michael Keaton is the most popular Batman in America right now is because of his triumphant return to DC’s The Flash.
Check out the trailer below with our first look at Keaton’s Batman. You can see the film in Dutch cinemas from June 15.
