Batman will be back on our cinema screens in 2016, but it's interesting to take a look back at the rich history the character has.
Arguably the most well-recognised and iconic of all superheroes, Batman has meant different things to different generations. Some remember the utterly daft 1960's Batman with Adam West, others remember the Tim Burton era with Michael Keaton, some (gulp) remember Val Kilmer and George Clooney's take. Almost all know of the truly fantastic Animated Series in the 1990's.
In recent years, Christopher Nolan's take on the character has eclipsed previous versions, but with Ben Affleck and Zack Snyder set to rejig the character yet again, we may be looking at a whole new generation of Bat-fans.
It's an interesting watch, to say the least. Did you know there were 1940's Batman serials? We sure didn't.
