How Tall is Batman Actually Supposed To Be? | Screen Rant – Screen Rant

Fans may be curious to know: How tall is Batman? Is he the shortest member of the Justice League? Does Joker look down at him? Is he 7ft tall?

How tall is Batman actually supposed to be? Fans might be interested in knowing the exact height the Dark Knight comes to (we won't look into his weight, that's rude). Is he the tallest member of the Justice League? Perhaps he's the shortest but the rest of the League members are too afraid to make fun of him for it (he's still Batman, after all). Which villains look up at him and which look down to him? Read on to learn just how tall (or short) that Batman truly is compared to other characters in the DC Universe.

The official sizes and body metrics for a multitude of DC characters can be found in theofficialDC Comics Encyclopediafrom DC Comics in partnership with DK. It makes sense that Batman and other DC Comics characters would have official heights and other body type metrics. The publisher would want to maintain a base level of consistency between series and different comic book artists as time goes on as they're being depicted. They wouldn't want one artist to draw Batman a few feet taller than a Gotham rogue, only to have him be shorter than that same rogue a few issues or series later when drawn by another. In order to maintain a basic continuity of appearance, there needs to be an agreed upon set of character dimensions.

According to the official encyclopedia, Batman is 6'2". For reference, that puts him as the same height as Will Smith, Ryan Reynolds, Chris Pratt, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. He's also the same height as Batman actor Adam West, and Lego Batman voice actor Will Arnett. As another fun fact, Michael Caine and Jeremy Irons, who both played Batman's butler Alfred in their respective films, are 6'2" as well.

In the DC Universe, Superman comes in at just an inch taller than the Dark Knight, while Wonder Woman is two inches shorter, putting Batman right in the middle of the DC's Trinity of Heroes. Furthermore, he is neither the tallest nor shortest member of the Justice League: Cyborg is the tallest at 6'6 and Flash and Wonder Woman tie for shortest at 6ft, while Green Lantern Hal Jordan is the same height as Batman. On the villain side, Penguin is obviously shorter than Batman at 5'2". Surprisingly, the Joker is taller than Batman being 6'5", while Darkseid is taller than all listed previously at a whopping 8'9". One could imagine that being super tall is a prerequisite for being a cosmic dictator obsessed with ruling over all by means of a vicious Parademon army.

While the information of knowing Batman's specific height is not super important in the grand scheme of things even in the realm of comics knowledge, it's hopefully still fun, interesting, and entertaining for Batman and DC fans to learn all the same. Fans of the Dark Knight can rest easy knowing that Batman can ride all of the rides at Disneyland, if he were so inclined.
