Fact that Batman is the most famous superhero in the world, he still doesn’t have any superpowers. All that he possesses is money and talent to beat the bad guys in Gotham City. Batman holds a few elite Nobel aliases, such as the Dark Knight, The World’s Greatest Detective, and Caped Crusader. His alter ego is called Bruce Wayne who inherited Wayne Enterprise.

A person runs out of words to explain how cool Batman is. The character of Batman first appeared in Detective Comics #27 in 1939, created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger. Since then, Batman is a sensation that appeared in more comic books, cartoons, movies, TV shows. Millions of toys and merchandise were and are sold featuring Batman.

BATMAN QUIZ – THE ULTIMATE DARK NIGHT TRIVIA

To make things more clear, we have ranked every Batman movie for you to know which one is the best and which one’s the worst. We have included Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League too.

15. Batman & Robin (1997)

12Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Director: Joel Schumacher
  • IMDb: 3.7/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 11%
  • Collection: $238,317,814

This movie is regarded as the worst movie there is of Batman. Joel Schumacher made the movie too jokey that it’s very hard for the audience to take it seriously. The movie is filled with unfunny lines and it is witless. The story is about Batman and Robin working together to stop Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy. George Clooney is part of the movie as Batman, but it simply did not work out.

14. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

11Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Director: Zack Snyder
  • IMDb: 6.5/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 28%
  • Collection: $867,500,281

Made a lot of money, but honestly, Dawn of Justice has ruined Batman and Superman for a generation. It is said that Dawn of Justice is not a Superman movie, but a Batman movie. Ben Affleck who plays Batman is the most hated Batman right now. Warner Bros. had to recast Batman because of that. The story becomes meaningless at a point. At the end of the movie, Martha sentiment was used, where Batman doesn’t kill Superman because Superman chokes out his mother’s name, making it absurd.

13. Batman Forever

Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Director: Joel Schumacher
  • IMDb: 5.4/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 39%
  • Collection: $336,529,144

Batman Forever has a huge star cast which includes Val Kilmer, Jim Carrey, Tommy Lee Jones, Nicole Kidman, Chris O’Donnell. And yet it failed miserably. Two-Face(Tommy Lee Jones) plans to seek revenge for a courtroom accident that leaves his face disfigured. Batman(Val Kilmer) must stop him. There’s The Riddler(Jim Carrey) too, who has plans of his own. This is a very busy and boring movie. The only element that worked is Jim Carrey who stole every scene he is in, with his acting.

11. Batman: The Killing Joke (2016)

10Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Director: Sam Liu
  • IMDb: 6.4/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 40%
  • Collection: $4,400,000

An R-rated Batman movie which in the process of transiting from a comic book experience to animation lost its way into nonsense. Kevin Conroy voiced as Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker. The moviemakers tried to make it darker but lacked emotional resonance. There’s even Batgirl in the movie who has sex with Batman which wasn’t in the comics.

10. Justice League (2017)

9Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Director: Zack Snyder
  • IMDb: 6.4/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 40%
  • Collection: $657,924,295

Snyder again, who ruined the whole of Justice League. Steppenwolf and his Parademons seek to conquer the earth, Batman must take the help of Wonder Woman to gather a team and stop the evil. Batman in the movie lacked something, he was depressing, Ben Affleck gave a terrible performance again after Dawn of Justice. There a few good things about the movie, but they are dominated by the bad ones. It was after this movie, Ben Affleck lost his cape to play Batman for future movies.

8. The Lego Batman Movie (2017)

8Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Director: Chris McKay
  • IMDb: 7.3/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 89%
  • Collection: $310,660,018

Lego movies are different in their own way. Will Arnett voiced for Batman and Michael Cera for Dick Grayson. This is a funny movie and quite a good one. The story revolves around Joker who plans to take over the city, Batman has to team up with the commissioner’s daughter, Barbara, and Robin to stop that from happening. Hell lot of pop culture jokes included in the movie. A must watch for humor seeking fans.

7. Batman (1966)

7Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Director: Leslie H. Martinson
  • IMDb: 6.5/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 78%
  • Collection: $1,700,000

This was an epic movie of its era. Batman and Robin team up and discover that bad guys are planning to dehydrate the entire population for ransom. This movie is based on the TV show of the 6os. Adam West played Batman and Robin was played by Burt Ward. It’s a ridiculous movie and explores nothing from the dark side of Batman, but it’s hilarious and campy. The Joker, Riddler, Penguin, and Catwoman are part of it.

6. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)

6Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Directors: Bruce Timm, Eric Radomski
  • IMDb: 7.8/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 84%
  • Collection: $5,617,391

A classic Batman animated series that will be loved by the kids. Mark Hamill gave his best voice for The Joker in Mask of the Phantasm, he channeled the laugh perfectly. Kevin Conroy who is believed to be the person who played Batman for the longest period of time was excellent. The Dark Knight is blamed for the killing of a crime lord. A criminal mastermind who is connected to Batman through his ex-girlfriend does the blaming. Batman then steps up to a fight.

5. Batman (1989)

5Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Directors: Tim Burton
  • IMDb: 7.5/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 72%
  • Collection: $411,348,924

The character of Joker became popular here which was played by Jack Nicholson and he did his best. Tim Burton’s Batman is the next big-screen adaptation of Batman after Batman (1966). Michael Keaton is still a perfect Batman. When Jack Napier turns himself in Joker and tries taking over the city, Batman’s gotta protect citizens of Gotham City.

4. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

4Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Directors: Christopher Nolan

  • Rotten Tomatoes: 87%
  • Collection: $1,084,439,099

The best hands that got on to Batman was Christopher Nolan. He did justice with Batman trilogy where Christian Bale played Batman. This movie takes place after four years of the events of The Dark Knight. Bruce Wayne is a bit weaker with an injured leg. But has to fight Bane(Tom Hardy) who imposes terror to Gotham City after an eight-year-long period of peace. This movie gave an upstanding end to the trilogy of Christopher Nolan’s Batman. Not to forget Anne Hathaway, who was a witty Catwoman.

3Every Batman Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

  • Directors: Tim Burton
  • IMDb: 7/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 79%
  • Collection: $266,824,291

Quite a disturbing movie that was made by Burton after his success with Batman(1989). An entrepreneur named Max(Christopher Walken) and Criminal Penguin(Danny DeVito) team up to disturb the peace of Gotham City, Batman gets into action. Selina Kyle(Michelle Pfeiffer) who was once attempted to be killed by Max, becomes Catwoman and seeks revenge. Bruce Wayne is shown lost and terrified. On the other hand, Catwoman is sexy and scary. A magnificent and disturbing movie at the same time.

Then the criminals hire a psychopathic and wicked criminal named Joker(Heath Ledger) who tries to bring down all the heroes to his level. The pre-eminent part of the movie is Heath Ledger who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
