“This isn’t the Adam West days. You can’t just roll out of bed and put the suit on. Audiences expect you to look like a superhero.”
– from a recent red-carpet interview with Ben Affleck
Ironically, data collected by Moviepilot suggest that since Batman first appeared in feature-length films 50 years ago, Mr. West has been the closest in physique to the Gotham crusader as specified in the comic books: 6’2″ (1.88m) tall, and weighing 210 pounds (95kg). Yet few would name Mr West’s portrayal as the best.
