Batman on Screen

Lewis Wilson and Robert Lowery – Perhaps the least known big screen Batmen are Lewis Wilson and Robert Lowery. Wilson and Lowery have the distinction of being the first actors to play Batman in a live-action production, having both starred as the Caped Crusader in serial films produced between 1943 and 1949. The earliest Bat-serials were little more than low-budget anti-German/Japanese propaganda films (they were produced during the Second World War), but their popularity nevertheless laid the foundation for future Batman projects.
