Batman might not be as heroic as you once thought.

There once was a time when Batman was the shining Dark Knight of Gotham City, fit with corny catch phrases and the integrity to never kill an innocent civilian in the pursuit of the bad guys like The Joker and Riddler.

But as the comics turned to films and the Knight got darker, so too did his methods.

'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' was released earlier this year, marking the new chapter of the superhero's life as protector over Gotham and a certain movie fanatic has crunched the numbers: It seems Ben Affleck might just be the most murderous Batman to grace the live action of the big screen with 21 kills to his name.

With a grand total of 66 deaths at the hands of the Caped Crusader of Gotham, we'll let you watch the compilations, so you can make your own minds up as to whether Batman really is as heroic as you once thought.
