Will Arnett: One of the 11 Batman actors

Im March 2016, the release of "Batman vs. Superman" introduced a new actor to the role of Batman, Ben Affleck.

The next film to feature the character Batman will come in 2017, with Will Arnett voicing Batman in "The Lego Batman Movie."

The character of Batman is now over 70 years old, but his fame is no less for it.

Batman was created by Bob Kane in 1939, and today is considered by IGN to be the No. 2 superhero of all time, losing the No.1 spot to Superman.

However, unlike the Kryptonian Kal-El, the Caped Crusader hails from the planet Earth and has no super powers of his own. Instead, he defeats evil through intellect, technology, wealth, martial arts skills and pure intimidation.

Since his creation, playing Batman has been an honor that has launched many an actor to his fame. To follow are the 11 men who, from 1943 to the present day, have had such an honor.
