Adam We 
Self-Proclaimed Potterhead, Game of Thrones Fan & All Round Charming Irish Chap 

Batman Day is almost upon us once again! Each year on the 21st of September the world of DC Comics celebrates the Caped Crusader, but this year is a big one for Bruce! 

That's right, it's Batman's 80th Year and throughout 2019 DC Comics have been celebrating Batman's Anniversary on March 30th and again for Batday using #LongLiveTheBat! 

We thought it was only fitting that this week we would dedicate our Retro Styler Giveaway to the man himself!

The Year of the Villain

2019 is a big year for DC Comics, not only are they celebrating Batman Day in a big way, Batman is sharing the limelight with his enemies as they have also made this “The Year of the Villain”! 

The baddies are taking center stage in their efforts to defeat Batman, Superman and all your favourite DC Universe Heroes in the most perilous DC Comics event to date! “Year of the Villain” focuses on Lex Luthor assembling an even larger Legion of Doom that buys into his ambitions for the planet - our heroes need their wits about them!

Bundle of Badass Batman Day Bits n' Bobs!

DC Comics and Warner Bros. are marking this special occasion with a series of worldwide events and conventions as well as the first ever Bat-Signal to light up around the Globe! We're doing our bit by giving away some of the absolutely Bat-tastic Merch we have available at Retro Styler! This brilliant Caran D'Ache Limited Edition Pen is the ideal piece of Batman stationery to journal your recent crime-stopping escapades in the most exciting detail! No DC Comics hero is complete without their stylish attire, hit the streets and let everyone know you're no ordinary Gotham resident by selecting a pair of Batman Socks from your 3 Pack of Men's Socks in Gift Tin, pop your Batman Embossed Wallet in your pocket and throw your awesome Fibre Optic Logo Snapback Cap over your Bat Ears and you're ready to go!

  • Michael Keaton, loved the Tim Burton style. Best villains. Best batmobile. Best gadgets.

  • My favourite actor who played batman over the years was Michael Keaton, I feel like he was the one that was able to split his two personas the best. When he was Bruce Wayne he acted like the millionaire business man he was but as Batman he was the Vigilante who fought crime and didn’t give his Identity away just like I believe Jack Nicholson has and always be the best Joker

  • Christian bale.

    Sarah E
  • I love the ‘Batman and Robin’ movie with Arnie as Mr. Freeze and Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy and so does my little Nephew Jack so I’d have to say George Clooney as he’s his first Batman! He’s not critically-acclaimed as The Dark Knight but he puts a smile on Jack’s face & that’s why. 🦇👨🏻

  • Best Batman would have to be Christian Bale, he played the role just about perfectly, coudnt have done it better with anyone else 👀

  • Bale definitely, the way he played batman in the dark Knight trilogy was just absloutly incredible acting

    Sophie Lewis
  • It’s all about the joker 🃏 as he’s by far the best villan… Like ever 👀😂

  • Keaton. Although I did love Bale but keaton just takes it for me. Just portrays him so well.

  • Love pretty much all past Batman’s, but if I had to pick one… Without a shadow of doubt, it’s Christian Bale!!!

  • It’s 100% Michael Keaton for me

  • I liked Michael Keaton and christen bale as they where very close to batman as can be.

  • Bale then Keaton, never in a million years Affleck, I think The Dark Knights trilogy is the best Batman.

  • Live action, its Keaton closely followed by Affleck. But the voice I hear when reading comics is always Kevin Conroy.

  • Got to be Keaton, by a nose!
    Part of me wishes he was young enough to do it now – he carried an edge that no-one else (except maybe Bale) got close to.
    And don’t forget how simply retro-awesome Adam West was!! That man was a legend!!

  • Michael Keaton. He captured something in both Bruce and Batman. He’s the only actor to play both parts well.

    The Dark Phenom
  • Probably Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton or Will Arnett. Keaton’s film is perfection, Arnetts perfectly captures Batman and Joker relationship but Affleck is an amazing Batman in bad films

    Martin Winchester
  • Ben Affleck. Still wish we could have had a solo batman film with him directing. Justice League ruined his run. But I do think Robert Pattinson is going to make that role his #CantWait #Batman

    Andy Blackshaw
  • Kevin Conroy and Michael Keaton both my Batman at some of the best times in my life

  • Val kilmer. I loved him as batman. And he also made a good Bruce Wayne. The whole film was amazing. Cheesy but fun. And the seen with dick grayson fight the neon guys saying his batman priceless

    Liam Morris
  • My favourite Batman would have to be Christian Bale, he played the role perfectly in my opinion, he’s a great actor.

    Cayleigh H
  • Christian bale because he was the most realistic

    Bryony Mason
  • Definetly Michael Keaton!

  • Michael Keaton has always been my favourite. I think it’s because he was the first Batman that I remember seeing 😊🦇

    Louise Dempsey
  • Michael Keaton has always been my favourite. I think it’s because he was the first Batman that I remember seeing 😊🦇

    Louise Dempsey
  • michael keaton is the no1 and only batman actor i love

    martin smith
  • I really like Christian Bale. My husband is a huge batman fan. He likes all actors who played batman.

  • For me the best Batman is Michael Keaton as he was the most unlikely choice but one of the greatest, I used to watch his batman’s over and over again. They are truly timeless (to me any way)

    Heather-Rose Gibson-Ryan
  • Love batman! Already subscribed and following on Instagram…..

    Love adam west! Original is great ❤

    Kimberley jane
  • Adam West just the best, the first i saw around 55 years ago

    Jane Dale-Beaumont
  • Adam West. As a kid in the v late 80s early 90s he was the first Batman I experienced and set the bar quite high. Plus he was hilarious.

  • Definitely Christian Bale ❤️ My other fave was the Lego version ☺️

  • My husband said adam west cos the originals are always the best and he is a great actor too

    donna skelton
  • Got to be Michael Keaton!
    If not for nostalgic reasons, then for his ability to do “crazy” pretty well.
    P.S. some BSG merch to buy would be nice! ;-)
