Batman may be the anti-est anti-hero among his contemporary franchise blockbuster counterparts. Bruce Wayne tragically lost his parents as a child. The police never caught his killer. So he dedicated his life to doing what no one could do for him and his family—keep the people of Gotham safe from criminals. Along the way, the masked avenger is forced to make tough decisions concerning what justice for the oppressed really looks like. Sometimes these decisions result in casualties and chaos, yet nothing has seemed to slow audiences from clamoring to the theaters each time a new Batman comes out.
