Batman has been DC’s biggest icon on the big screen and has the biggest fandom all over the world. Over the years we have seen so many Batman movies and loved almost all of them. Here is a list of top 10 best Batman movies.
10. Batman Forever
This was Joel Schumacher’s first Batman movie and the one that did not actually suck. This movie is quite underrated but is still fun to watch. It adapts a dark storyline and great comic-book action where Batman played by Val Kilmer fights against The Riddler and Two-Face along with Robin.
9. The Lego Batman Movie
The animated Lego Batman Movie was a treat to watch as it focussed on Batman and Robin’s relationship and Batman’s relationship with the Joker. Also, it featured so many villains of Batman’s rogues gallery and gave us an arc of the Bat-family too.
8. Batman under the Redhood
This was one of the best Batman animated movies of all time. In the movie, Batman goes after an anti-hero Redhood who was actually the first Robin (Jason Todd) and was tortured and murdered by the Joker. Redhood comes back from the dead and fights Batman over not having ended the Joker for good.
7. Batman: The Mask of Phantasm
Even though this flick went in a loss at the time of its release, it was later loved by the fans and was critically acclaimed too. Batman here has to clear off his name as he’s being mistaken for someone who’s killing various crime lords. In the end, it comes out to be Bruce’s long lost girlfriend, who then dies taking the mad prince of mayhem, the Joker along with her.
6. The Dark Knight Returns 1 & 2
The first film sees Batman as a man in his late 50s, who’s hung the cape since his protégé is killed, and it takes ten years’ crime spree of the villains to make him put the cape on again. The Second one showcases the eagerly awaited wait of fans, for seeing Batman and Superman go all out on screen, and it also sees Joker having his last laugh in the film.
5. Batman Returns
This was the second and the final installment of Tim Burton’s live-action Batman movies. It was very well acclaimed by the critics and the fans and showed Batman take down Penguin. Catwoman also played a substantial role in the movie.
4. The Dark Knight Rises
This was the final movie of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy and saw a crippled Bruce Wayne don the Cape once again to take down one of Gotham’s most threatening villains of all time – Bane. Batman fixed his broken spirit and saved his city by sacrificing himself.
3. Batman Begins
The first Christopher Nolan Batman movie was quite underrated but still, it was one of the best Origin stories any super hero can ever get and it was certainly the best origin for the caped crusader.
2. Batman (1989)
Tim Burton’s first Batman movie was a really awesome adventure as it Saw Michael Keaton’s Batman take down Jack Nicholson’s Joker. They both portrayed their roles very well and the take of Tim Burton on the story was insane. It will always remain one of the best Batman movies ever made.
1. The Dark Knight
Christopher Nolan’s second movie of the Batman trilogy was released in the year 2008. The star cast of the movie includes Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman. It was this movie that changed the whole concept of Batman and is the Best Batman movie until now.
