51 Batman Quotes from Movies and Comics

Batman, an iconic American superhero, was conceived by Bill Finger and Bob Kane for DC Comics in 1939.

The character’s impetus, Bruce Wayne, transforms into Batman following his parents’ brutal murder.

While initially darker, Batman’s character mellowed, punctuated by Robin’s introduction.

Despite early successes and the creation of famous villains like Joker and Catwoman, credit distribution among contributors was inconsistent.


Batman’s influence transcended comics, branching into films, TV and radio. Post-WWII, societal criticisms altered Batman’s tales and characters.

The 1960s brought both revitalization and a celebrated TV series. By the 1980s, the darker, original narrative resurfaced.

Film adaptations, particularly Tim Burton’s 1989 film and Nolan’s trilogy, have solidified Batman’s esteemed pop culture position.

Below are some of the most inspirational quotes by Batman character.
