Batman #4 Schools Batman #7 on People Skills

2/2/2009 6:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Not every Batman is a raging, angry lunatic -- in fact, the caped crusader who launched the movie franchise, Michael Keaton, was the coolest cat ever when almost every person at the Tampa airport approached him for a picture.

Doesn't this call for a "who's the best Batman" poll? Anyway, I'd pick Keaton over Bale any day.

michael keaton was a much cooler batman, and WAAAYYY hotter than the crazy guy.

didnt bale try to claim recently that he DIDNTassault his crazy mother and sister?? if THEY are the crazy ones, i hope they are locked up and off the streets forever!

casting christian bale in American Psycho obviously didn't require much thought!!!!!!!!

"Anyway, I'd pick Keaton over Bale any day." WHAT?????????
NOT ME, man!!!!! No effin' way! Burton's ridiculous creations can't hold a candle to Chris Nolan's. Want to experience the heart and soul of Batman? Steer clear of Tim Burton's, and, especially, Joel Schumacher's parodies. They're pretty much a crock o fsh it!

Now, can any of his fans explain why Michael Keaton didn't want to play Batman, anymore?

I love Michael Keaton but that doesn't mean because Christian Bale had one bad day he wouldn't be nice to a fan. In the past Michael hasn't been all that nice either. Everyone has a bad day or more than one. Get over it. I love both guys!!!

There's no comparison, Bale IS Batman, Keaton WAS Batman. The fact that Bale lost his temper is a joke, like no one has ever lost their temper? Gimme a freakin' break.
