Batman made his silver-screen debut in 1943, played by Lewis Wilson. Highly influenced by World War II fervor, the serial had its issues – the most offensive bits were deleted for the home video release in the 1980s – but it did introduce the Batcave and Alfred’s traditional appearance in the Batman universe.
