While one
could make an argument for the optimism of Superman, the innocence of
Spider-Man, or the personality of Iron Man, it’s obvious that the most popular
superhero of all time is Batman. Batman is a character who has given fans some
of the most iconic superhero films of all time.

Batman Day
is an annual event organised by DC Entertainment to celebrate and promote
Batman. The first Batman Day was on July 23, 2014. 

6. The Dark
Knight Rises

the first hour or so, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is a good watch. However, the
decision to jump forward in time eight years allows us to see broken Bruce

2. Batman

Released in
1992, ‘Batman Returns’ is the best as compared to other films of the franchise.
It’s really just a political thriller. The Penguin emerges from the sewer and
runs for mayor of Gotham! It’s great stuff, especially now that Donald Trump is

1. Batman: The

This one has
the timelessness factor that none of the other movies do. It’s a delight from
beginning to end, thanks to Adam West’s winking Batman and the coalition of
villains who can’t stop cackling maniacally.
