Wednesday’s Want, Wed, Waste: Batmen

Hello and welcome to my version of the game, ‘F*@#’, Marry, Kill. This week we are WWW’ing actors who have played Batman.

Myself and some of my friends are sharing our Want, Wed, and Waste choices from this week’s list:

Adam West, Christian Bale, Michael Keaton

Me (Alicia Dean). Author of KILLER LOVE – Boxed Set of Four Romantic Suspense titles ON SALE for 99¢ – Nothing to Fear, Truly Madly, Poetic Injustice, and Tears of the Wounded

Want: Michael Keaton – He’s attractive and, in addition to the Batman role, I’ve seen him in a lot of movies that I loved. He’s not the sexiest guy in the world, but he’s the sexiest guy on the list. 🙂

Wed: Adam West – Okay, mainly because it was between him and Christian Bale, and I am not the least attracted to Christian Bale. Adam West was the original (as far as I know), and I love the classics. I think it’s cute the way they did the bam, pow, stuff. The thought of Adam West as Batman takes me back to a simpler time. However, his role on Family Guy kind of spoils the image.

Waste: Christian Bale – He just doesn’t do it for me. I don’t find him attractive in the least, and his Batman voice in the Dark Knight movies annoyed me. If it weren’t for the villains of the Dark Knight movies (Mainly Heath Ledger and Tom Hardy), I probably wouldn’t have liked the movies at all.

M.J. Schiller, author of TRAPPED UNDER ICECan love break the hold of this rock star’s past?  NOW FREE! Website: www.mjschillerauthor.blogspot.com

Want: Christian Bale. I’m not particularly attracted to him, but with that temper of his comes passion and a one night stand might be a lot of fun. Definitely wouldn’t want a relationship that lasted longer than that.

Wed: Michael Keaton. So. much. fun! We’d have a blast together!

Waste: Adam West. Too stiff to be much fun, in or out of the bedroom. Just sayin’.

Diane Burton, author of ONE RED SHOE (wannabe writer rescues wounded spy while risking her heart). Buy link:    Website:  www.dianeburton.com

Want & Wed: Christian Bale. What a hottie! The ultimate bad boy, brooding, wounded, and oh so sexy.

Waste: Definitely Adam West. So goofy. The whole show was goofy. Camp was in then and Batman was definitely campy.

Undecided: Michael Keaton. I’ve never seen him as a hero. More like a sidekick. He doesn’t do anything for me.

**********************

Nancy Fraser, author of A Saved WomanShe was used merchandise, stale bread. How could she hope for the love of a good man?

Want: Christian Bale. I mean, just look at him! He’s sexy, moody, and does that ‘dark knight’ thing perfectly. I wouldn’t mind seeing what he’s hiding under that utility belt!

Wed: Michael Keaton. He also brought a brooding, tortured soul to the part. However, I’ve also loved him in situation comedy and in family roles. He seems reliable, steadfast, and honorable.

Waste: Adam West. When I picture Adam as Batman, all I can see are the cartoon word balloons. POW! WHAM! Definitely not conducive to intimacy. Plus, the costume was just too baggy to hint at anything worth looking at!

**********************

Nora Snowdon, author of The French ResolutionCan a philanthropist and a corporate raider find true love against all odds?

Want: Adam West –He’d be a campy fling with lots of laughs and easy enough to let go of afterwards.

Wed: Michael Keaton as he can be both humorous and the dark and brooding type (sort of one-stop shopping for all your heroic needs!)  he also seems like someone you’d need many years to just begin to understand–and I like puzzles.

Waste: Christian Bale. I just can’t get past what a hot-tempered jerk he seems to be in real life.  And I’m not a fan of actors who take the craft too seriously. Get over yourself, it ain’t brain surgery…

Now we’d like to hear from you….which of these Caped Crusaders would you Want, Wed, and Waste?

Thanks for playing!

  1. Great choices this week. I’ll go with Adam West for want because he’s just too old school to get too excited over today. 🙂 Wed is Michael Keaton. I have always thought he’s hot and can fit any role perfectly. I’m with Alicia with Christian Bale so I’d waste him.

  2. Haha, late to the party (even though I was the hostess), but I like the answers you ladies gave. Nora, I guess you and I are the only ones not on the Christian Bale train 🙂

  3. Interesting choices this week and I’m not sure what I would choose, other than Michael Keaton for Wed. Adam West was handsome as Batman, but stiff and wooden. It was campy, even back in the day, but TV special effects were pretty nil, so I’m sure they did the best they could with the miniscule budget they had. It’s kind of fun to see the old TV shows when the medium was still in its childhood, if not infancy. Christian Bale has that smoldering bad boy thing going for him, but that can be trouble with a capital T.

  4. I have never heard of the word campy before! I liked Nora’s point in people taking themselves to seriously. It’s good to be dedicated to your job, but there is a point where you’ve lost all perspective and Christian Bale’s seen that point in his rear view mirror too many times.
