The 10 Best Superhero Performances in Movies

EE British Academy Film Awards 2014 - Alternative View In Colour

Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman

Let’s make thing clear: Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy is an extraordinary piece of filmmaking, and the the center of these gritty, noir-esque, superhero movies is the strong, consistent performance of Christian Bale. While his Batman voice may be a little ridiculous (get the dude a throat lozenge), Bale, whether he’s Bruce in a tux or the Caped Crusader in his Batsuit, is always tough, focused, and determined. It’s a more quiet and subtle performance than a lot of other ones on this list, but it’s what grounds all the violence and insanity that invades Gotham throughout all  three movies.
