And They Pulled Him Out of the Cold, Cold Ground: Film's Hottest Costumed Superheroes and Villains
In four days, the Dark Knight shall rise and the theaters shall swell. But we won’t fill their seats based on the story alone—we fill them because of the hotness that is Bale in a rubber suit. Just let your mind wander to the other actors who have played Batman on film; try as they might, Keaton, Kilmer and Clooney didn’t come near Bale’s sex appeal. It’s not easy to carry off those ears…
Clearly there are those who wear their rubber, leather, helmets and capes better than others:
10. Michael Fassbender as Magneto
9. Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow
8. Jennifer Garner as Elektra
7. Tom Hiddleston as Loki
6. Terence Stamp as General Zod
5. Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury
4. Henry Cavill as Superman
3. Christopher Reeve as Superman
2. Christian Bale as Batman
1. Chris Hemsworth as Thor
For the purposes of this list, the focus was on appearance alone (I’m talking to you, ScarJo).
