Who's the best Batman of all time?

With "Wonder Woman" now in theaters, we figured we'd debate the merits of every filmic version of Batman. Don't worry, we threw in some in-depth talk about Tommy Lee Jones and what a waste of him that Two-Face was.

As an audience expert, she rarely writes but when she does it's most certainly about Star Trek, Marvel, DC, Westworld, San Diego Comic-Con and great streaming properties. Or soccer, that's a thing she loves, too.

Basically, Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer were the best Batmans, no question. Oh, you don't agree? Great let's fight about it -- via podcast.
