Contest - WPCentral Nokia Lumia 710 Dark Knight Rises Cover Giveaway

Nokia Lumia 710 Dark Knight Rises covers

Name your favorite Batman, win a Dark Knight cover for your Lumia 710

We've mentioned the Dark Knight Rises covers for the Nokia Lumia 710 Windows Phone before. T-Mobile is currently giving the covers away with new purchases of the Lumia 710. Well, we've gotten our grubby little hands on three of them to give away.

The covers are stamped with the Dark Knight Rises movie logo and we thought it might be fitting to somehow tie the Dark Knight into this giveaway. So... keeping it simple... in the comments let us know who is your favorite Batman. Was it Adam West, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Michael Keaton, Christian Bale or is the comic book version the best?

Chime in through the day (say until 5pm PST) and tonight we'll randomly pick three winners, each to receive a Nokia Lumia 710 Dark Knight Rises cover. You do need to register so we can get in touch with you (registration is done here) and remember these cases are for the 710. Feel free to chime in but if you don't have the 710, let us know as you comment to avoid winning a case that doesn't fit your Windows Phone.

Good luck everyone!

Would have to be Christian bale

toyotast165 says:

Michael Keaton was my favorite Batman, but George Clooney made the best Bruce Wayne.

jonchai says:

I'd go with Bales's version. Not much of a comic fan, but I've seen every batman movie there is. Bale's version is just dark, and sadistic (Heath as Joker)

csakre says:

Christian Bale is my favorite Batman

trurascalz says:

A major asset to the success of the comics/animated stories was Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne/Batman. He delivered one hell of a Batman voice. :D

Po_MD says:

Adam West is my favorite, but Christian Bale is pretty good. Speaking of comic books though: I found an old old old Spiderman comic while working in the back of Goodwill, maybe Batman's next. But yeah, Adam West.

nonameform says:

Michael Keaton is my favourite Batman and I enjoyed Tim Burton's movies the most.

banazul says:

Can't decide. I'd say Christian Bale, but that ridiculous growling voice he uses in the second film completely takes me out of the movie.

jdechico93 says:

Adam west was my favorite.

sadubon says:

My favorite Batman is Christian Bale

vishnu7891 says:

Christian Bale is the best according to me!! The comic version is no less awesome :) !!

VAL KILMER is the best Bruce Wayne and batman Christian bale does not even come close to Val Kilmer r Michael Keaton

MediaCastleX says:

Definitely Kevin Conroy! =P

pooleyjnr1 says:

Adam West, the original. Plus the fact he makes an ass of himself in Family Guy, quality!

Tomasz S. says:

Christian Bale FTW!

I like Christian Bale, he seem to be the most raw and violent. 

si_sepet says:

absolutely  Christian Bale!!!!    ^^,

bawtmann says:

Oh, really love Batman franchise. Christian Bale was my favourite!

AriesDog says:

Kevin Conroy IS Batman. The Animated Series, Batman Bayond, the Arkham Asylum/City video games, and the better direct-to-video DC animated movies. It's just a shame he never got to play Batman live action back when he was in his physical prime.

That batman arkham city is one of the best games Iv ever played

Christian Bale is the best one.

bubuho says:

As far as batman goes Christian Bale is the best BATMAN!..LOL!

Frank Millers version of the Batman in The Dark Knight Returns is hands down the best. We get to see the mental struggle of Bruce Wayne as an old man all to aware that his war on crime has failed and his failure to keep The Bat retired.

rodneyej says:

I have to say Michael Keaton,,, thats the era I grew up in. Plus, I had those Batman branded Chuck Tailors... Circa early 90's.. Lol.

RODNEYEJ wer u been lol

clayghoat says:

comic book version all the way!!!!!!

brianpee says:

Christian Bale! Gogo Dark Knight Trilogy

code91 says:

Christian Bale !!!
His voice when he becomes the dark crusader is scary and amazing as it should be with batman :D

XtiaN710 says:

Christian Bale

XtiaN710 says:

Please delete this one. Thanks!

dennisfang1 says:

Love how sinister bale's version of batman is:)

mrmprince says:

I'd have to say Michael Keaton! I agree with classykeyser...Bale's Batman growl voice got a lil annoying after a while..

Jnbs says:

The one that my THE DARK KNIGHT RISES app says: Christian Bale!!! 

Christian Bale is the answer. Best Batman of all time

George clooney made batman look cool!!!

Sumyong1 says:

Adam West during the day, Christian Bale at night... I know, weird right? But it makes sense!

SaNcHo777 says:

Adam West for being the only Batman who can swing-dance

gorebashd says:

Comic wise I'd have to say Frank Miller Dark Knight. Was amazing, closest would be Christian Bale. Tho I hate when he talks as Batman. He sounds ridiculous.

neo0319b says:

Christian Bale!

guilhermedsx says:

Christian Bale, of course! How can you not love the dark, badass funny-deep-voiced Batman?

flodd says:

Can I be really pedantic and point out that the 'original' film Batman was Lewis Wilson...  Don't need a phone cover though so don't add me to the draw...

justop26 says:

Christian Bale sure is the best Batman for me. I love the last two movies!

TallPaul86 says:

Christian Bale for me - the comically gravelly voice would be an awesome add for a Benylin/Covonia throat medicine commercial!!
And i bought one of the last remaining Lumia 710's from the Carphone Warehouse when they were at £99!!  I'd love a blue or black one if im so lucky!!

Christian Bale for the winner!

Well it looks like so far im the only Batman Forever fan come on everybody you all know that movie was awesome Jim Carrey as the riddled, Tommy Lee Jones as 2face,Chris O'Donald as the only robin,Nichole Kidman all great actors plus the batman suit looked good not like Christian Bale's bat suit that still looks awful lol

sbanjo89 says:

Christian Bale breathed life into the franchise after the nipple fiasco of Batman and Robin. He has to win

Sangiah says:

Christian Bale. The end.

TheMofaDe says:

Two words Christian Bale

Illum1na says:

Christian Bale

ExcaliburII says:

I'm up for Michael Keaton.

ashishsirohi says:

Christian Bale is ma fav batman.

timwp12 says:

Oh no not this again. Lumia 710 sucks low 8gb storage space.
My HTC wp7.5 has a 16gb more storage space. Also the cover are so ugly.

Gemini Ace says:

Good contribution and very on topic. Please tell us more about your worthless opinions.

timwp12 says:

Your welcome digest. Now grow up batman for kids hahaha

apocacrux says:

Me, because...I'm batman.

buggyglint says:

Michael Keaton was my favorite growing up. If I was more fimiliar with the Batman series from the 60's I might have said Adam West because from the few episodes that I've seen as a kid, it looked like a very funny show.

cliff08er says:

VaL Kilmer ,he brought Batman back to the mainstream.

Finally someone agrees with me lol

cliff08er says:

Went to the movies to see Batman Forever ,then I was hooked on anything Batman:)

cliff08er says:

I understand all the young pups on here picking Christian Bale,but Keaton and Kilmer were Batman when I was a kid.

Tomasz S. says:

Oh don't you worry, we do remember how "cool" Batman & Robin was.

Cliff08er-Same here lol

TechyMexican says:

Yay :D cases for my lumia 710!  

The55 says:

Adam West a true American icon!!!
The One true Batman!!!

smasithick says:

Christian bale :)

I'm torn between Adam West as the batman, and lego batman... no, definetally Lego batman! I had so much fun with those toys!

kenn23 says:

Christian Bale 

Gemini Ace says:

Adam West without a doubt.  Bale's Batman voice is the worst thing ever.

Guakala says:

Will Friedle/Terry McGinnis from Batman Beyond! and maybe Christian Bale haha.

Batman beyond was the best

Shatterpane says:

West was funny, but I'm gonna say Bale. He's my fave.

vitor_hs says:

Christian Bale is my favorite Batman :D

bonaojnfr525 says:

val kilmer!! All day everyday!

Hell yeah lol that makes 3 of us for Val Kilmer

kool_maverik says:

Christian Bale it would have to be!

dennysenpai says:

Christian Bale because I love the movies so much.

I'll have to chime in in the Val Kilmer. I think he has portrayed Batman in the comics the best, and even his looks fits well. Plus Nicole Kidman is frickin awesome in that movie, not to mention Jim Carrey.

Haha that's what I was sayn Val is the best to bad they didn't put him in batman and robin that would of been awesome plus the bat suit was the best on batman forever

2brun4u says:

The Christian Bale movies were the best, but that's probably cause they are newer too

DMBFan5 says:

Favorite Batman? Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in the Animated series...

If that doesn't count. Keaton, by far.

hbjoroy says:

Michael Keaton, but the new films are by far the best, Christian Bale does a good job.

rk8flame says:

Batman Beyond is my fondest batman series. 

xdabob says:

Christian Bale but with Michael Leaton as a very close runner-up. And please..... never let Joel Schumacher anywhere near a Batman script ever again!!

st8ic says:

I guess I would sound too modern, but it's Christian Bale :)

imutan says:

my favorite is still the comicbook version of Frank millers Dark Knight.

pixiewaffle says:

Michael Keaton! Something about the classics are the best. I say if it works, keep it!! ;)
