Bale is THE method actor in Hollywood. But beyond that, which was undoubtedly very useful for his Batman gig, there is nothing special about him; if you ignore his willingness to do extreme stuff to delve into a role he is just a good but not brilliant actor. Like Affleck.

I guess most of this is about the physical aspect of Batman, he should be an intimidating bada*s. While this was certainly the case during Nolan's trilogy it is in no way mandatory, Burton's movies worked well with Keating's calm and reserved portrayal of Bruce Wayne.
