Survey: Batman Is The Best Superhero of All Time
A recent survey conducted by the online list-making and voting website Rankers.com ranked the Caped Crusader as being the "best superhero of all time," even surpassing Spider-Man, Wolverine and Superman.
While the ranked list is ongoing, Batman currently sits comfortably in first place with over 3,400 votes. That's a substantial amount more than second place (Spider-Man), who has just 2,800 votes. And with the upcoming Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice movie on the horizon, the Caped Crusader will only become more popular and relevant in the months to come.
Complete list of the best superheroes of all time (according to Rankers.com):
- Iron Man
- Captain America
- Wonder Woman
- Green Lantern
First announced at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con International, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is the sequel to Man of Steel. Of course, it will follow a different plot, as Batman is introduced to the DC Universe story. Dawn of Justice is directed by famous Hollywood director Zack Snyder and features an all-star cast consisting of Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Holly Hunter.
Affleck discussed how he was able to nab the role of Batman in an interview with 411mania.
"Initially I was reluctant as I felt I didn’t fit the traditional mold but once Zack showed me the concept, and that it would be both different from the great movies that Chris and Christian made but still in keeping with tradition I was excited. Doing something different and new is always tricky and part of the thrill and the risk is that initially it confounds expectations. The truth is, it’s the movie and the execution of it is what all the actors depend on and I believe in Zack’s vision," said Affleck.
There's been some criticism over the casting of Affleck to play the Caped Crusader. Some people have slammed Snyder for choosing Affleck, but others are confident it's the right choice. If Affleck turns out to be a poor choice for the upcoming flick, we may see the above rankings shift in favor of Spider-Man. Until then, though, Batman will likely remain in first place, holding the title of the world's best superhero.
