Batman is one of the most filmed superheroes ever, with his on-screen career going back an incredible 73 years. As such, the presentation of him has developed quite a bit over the decades. Now you can see just how much, thanks to those nifty people at the Burger Fiction YouTube channel.

Just before he lands in cinemas once again for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this amazing video demonstrates how different eras have presented the Batman in different ways. Watch the video above to see the Dark Knight go from wartime serial star, to the face of campy 60s kitsch, to the gravel-voiced sourpuss we are all familiar with today.

Ben Affleck, you have a lot to live up to.


Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives in the UK and US on 25th March.
