The Suicide Squad director James Gunn recently revealed who his favorite live-action Batman is.
The role of Batman has become one of the most lucrative in all of Hollywood, with various A-list stars portraying the Dark Knight over the years. This naturally leads to a debate between fans on who is the best Batman that we’ve gotten on the big screen. As we wait to see what Robert Pattinson does with the role, many put Christian Bale, Michael Keaton, and Ben Affleck towards the top.
James Gunn is about to enter the DC Extended Universe with The Suicide Squad and is currently working on post-production at home. While Ben Affleck’s Batman appeared in the last Suicide Squad film, Gunn’s sequel will not feature an appearance from the Caped Crusader. However, Gunn did share during a recent Instagram Q&A that his favorite is probably Christian Bale’s version from The Dark Knight Trilogy.
