This was a no brainer for me, it’s Batman all day. Well that’s not entirely true I went through a few choices like Hans Landa, Patrick Bateman, Han Solo and of course Batmans greatest enemy The Joker. Ultimately I landed on Batman because of the sheer complexity of the character. He’s a character living on the verge of madness, forever trying to keep his rage in check. Although some film portrayals have been light, goofy, fun and sometimes terrible the psychology of the character can never be ignored.
In Killing Bill vol. 2 Bill tells The Bride that his favourite superhero has always been Superman because Superman is his true identity and Clark Kent is the disguise. In a way the same could be said for Batman, his Bruce Wayne personal is him acting like a billionaire should just to keep up appearances whereas Batman is who he truly is deep inside. Bottom line is this is appearances character that will get my appearances rise to a cinema no matter what, I’ll always show up for Batman.
