'Riddle me this, riddle me that. Who's afraid of the big, black Bat?'
If this line rings a bell, let us guarantee you know your 'Batman' lingo. But, how well do you know the history and mystery of the men played the caped crusader? From Robert Pattinson to Ben Affleck and many others, we take a look at actors who played the Batman with an interesting Marvel Cinematic Universe connect. While some stuck to saving the day, others hung up their cape and played villain, but there was no denying that they put the 'super' in superhero and supervillain all the same.

02 Robert Pattinson

Before Robert Pattinson could growl the lines "I am vengeance," did you know that he put his hat in the ring for a role in the MCU instead of DC Comics. In one of his interviews, the actor revealed that he had an informational meeting with Marvel bosses during the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' casting, but he didn't stick the landing. Nonetheless, reports claimed that his non-Marvel background made him the perfect candidate for Matt Reeves' upcoming superhero film 'The Batman'.

03 - Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck may not have been a blind bat-man, but what he was a blind lawyer in Marvel's Daredevil. Before jumping off the rooftops in his a black mask and cape, he got all the crime-fighting to practise with his role as Matt Murdock, the Devil of Hell's Kitchen. Although black will always look more flattering, his red superhero gear will always be special.

04 Christian Bale

Bruce Wayne once said, "You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." Life came around full circle for Christian Bale and the 'Dark Knight' who recently crossed over into the MCU to play the villain in the upcoming film 'Thor: Love and Thunder'. The actor, credited as one of the best and broodiest Batman characters, is now set to lock horns with Chris Hemsworth in the upcoming Marvel film. Rumour has it that the movie bosses may have just found their next supervillain (to possibly even replace Thanos) in Christian who may feature in many more films to come.

05 - Michael Keaton

Good guys going bad seems to be a recurring theme with actors playing the role of the 'Batman'. Michael Keaton, who played the suave, sophisticated and smooth Bruce Wayne in 'Batman', 'Batman Returns' and who will be donning the cape once again in 'The Flash' also has a Marvel link. The DC superhero turned several shades darker when he crossed over to the MCU as the Vulture in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' and the upcoming anti-hero film 'Morbius'.

06  - Will Arnett

Will Arnett wasn't kidding when he said, "I only work in Black, and sometimes very dark grey." The actor, who voiced the character of Batman in the hugely successful 'The Lego Movie', 'The Lego 'Batman Movie' and 'The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part'. Well, did you know that Arnett also had a Marvel past? No, he didn't feature as an avenger, but as Agent AA in 'Men in Black 3'.

07 - Bruce Greenwood

Bruce Greenwood also lent his voice to the iconic character of Bruce Wayne, aka the Batman in the animated films 'Batman: Under the Red Hood' and 'Batman: Gotham by Gaslight'. Years after he played the caped vigilante, he said across to the Marvel universe and bagged a role as the President of the United States in the film 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'.
