Ranking Every Live-Action BATMAN Movie Ever

We know how much everyone loved and agreed with our definitive ranking of all the MCU movies, so on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back we put together the ultimate list of live-action Batman films. But before everyone had a chance to get mad at each other we broke down all the latest Star Wars tidbits from The Last Jedi.

Host Jessica Chobot was joined by Nerdist editors Dan Casey and Rachel Heine today, along with Nerdist News writer Joan Ford, to discuss the latest tidbits from the galaxy far, far away. They started with the latest commercial for The Last Jedi which features Rey and a very worried Luke. What could be the “something else” she sees between the Light and Dark? Why does it have Luke so freaked out?

But while that commercial was raising even more questions, some other new sneak peeks might offer possible insights into what we might see when the movie hits theaters next month. So what do we make of the the crystal fox (called a vulptex) and its chance to be a literal light in the darkness for the good guys? Can we completely trust Laura Dern’s Admiral Holdo, the new leader of the Resistance? Could she be the new “Lando?” And is there anything to learn about Benicio Del Toro’s character from that brief look at him that popped up in a new foreign-language trailer?

Then, because of this past weekend’s release of Justice League, it was time to calmly come to an easy consensus about where every live-action Batman movie ever ranks. Yup, it was a very simple and agreeable conversation that should put this conversation to end forever.

……Okay maybe it wasn’t quite that easy. And maybe some feelings were hurt and no one is speaking to each other in the office now. But at least no one in the entire universe will agree with this ranking! So it was totally worth it. So who came out on top? Who resides at the bottom? Which film was higher than we might have guessed? And which one is overrated?

Remember Nerdist News Talks Back airs live every weekday at 1:00 p.m. PT on our YouTube and Alpha channels. Viewers who tune in with us can get in on the conversation about the biggest topics in pop culture every day.

It’s also the easiest way to tell us why our Batman rankings are all wrong and we should feel badly about ourselves. It might sound weird, but we really enjoy when that happens.

But we still want to hear your thoughts on today’s show. What do you make of Rey’s “something else?” And which Batman movie stands above the rest? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
