The Problem with Batman...

Now the simpering ladies of the press find Batman's voice to rough for them.
"His Batman rasps his lines in a voice that's deeper and hammier than ever," said NPR's David Edelstein.

The New Yorker's David Denby praised the urgency of Bale's Batman, but lamented that he "delivers his lines in a hoarse voice with an unvarying inflection."
What do they want? I suppose he could have a high whiny lisping voice, but do you think that would work with the dark persona and the fear that he uses as his tool?

Or I suppose they'd prefer Adam West's voice and measured tone. That will strike fear in a 3 year old, but do they actually think a criminal would be intimidated?

Maybe these dolts should actually understand what the story is about rather than fret that his voice is raspy and deep.
