Watch The Evolution of Batman Over Seven Decades


Just four years after the first Batman comic was published, the caped crusader made his big screen debut in 1943’s Batman. Since then, the nocturnal superhero has appeared in live-action television shows, films, cartoons, and made-for-TV movies. Over the last seven decades, he’s been portrayed as a lovable goofball by Adam West and a deadly serious crime fighter by Christian Bale; time and again, he’s defeated the Joker, the Riddler, the Penguin, and more, saving Gotham City from certain destruction. 

Now, in advance of Bruce Wayne’s next big-screen appearance in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Burger Fiction has created a supercut of Batman’s greatest film and television appearances. The supercut isn’t comprehensive—it’s missing some of Batman’s animated adventures (including his truly bizarre 1970s Scooby Doo crossover)—but it does include all of his live-action films and most of his most famous adventures. Check it out above.
