There are few men in films as popular as the Dark Knight. The caped crusader is one of the most recognizable and well-loved characters in cinema history. His name has been associated with fear for almost 90 years, and he continues to captivate audiences around the world. It seems too tempting to not compare his popularity to that of another man named Robin, who was also part of this year’s Halloween season.
It is no secret that the Batman franchise has enjoyed phenomenal success. The first movie was released in 1939, and to this day, it remains one of the most popular superhero films of all time. Fans frequently cite this film as the starting point of the entire franchise. Since then, the franchise has continued to grow in popularity, and the most recent film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is the sixth highest-grossing movie of all time.
This record-breaking success can be attributed to a combination of factors. First, the films adapt the DC Comics universe so well that it feels like an extension of the superhero genre as we know it. Second, unlike most superheroes, who are usually played by A-listers, the Batman is often cast with much smaller, independent actors. Third, and most importantly, Batman is a character that resonates with many people. Even those that have never read a word of comics can understand his motivations, and many consider him to be a role model.
Why Robert Pattinson?
There are several reasons why Robert Pattinson is the most recognizable face associated with Batman. First, he is the perfect age to portray the character. Batman was originally created for a much older audience, so it makes sense that his most famous cast members are often much more mature than the average superhero. Second, he has previously portrayed rebellious youths, which is similar to the depiction of the early Batman. Third, he is a complete unknown when compared to almost every other actor that has played the role of Batman. Finally, and most importantly, he is the son of one of the greatest cinematographers of all time, Angus MacLeman. His casting in this role was met with universal approval, particularly among fans of the Dark Knight.
Who is the Most Popular Robin?
Similarly, the Robin character is also immensely popular. The character first appeared as a supporting character in the 1939 movie, and ever since, he has been appearing alongside Batman in most of the other films. Typically, the character is portrayed by a young boy named Robin. However, as the character became more popular, the actors that played him grew up and became men. Now that we are in 2017, it is a completely different story. As before, it is difficult to determine the most popular Robin. There have been several different Robins over the years, and he will always have a special place in the hearts of fans.
It is interesting to compare the popularity of these two iconic characters. Bruce Wayne was first introduced to moviegoers in 1989’s Batman, and even then, he was not as popular as the character that would later be called the Joker. Since then, however, Bruce Wayne has not been the same. While he remains one of the most recognizable faces associated with the Batman, that role has been eclipsed by the villainous Joker. It seems that this year’s Halloween season will tell us once and for all which character is the most popular. Let’s find out.
