Batman Villains in Gif Form

We're not in the habit of putting pressure on our readers but there's an important question that needs answering: which Batman director is your favourite?

While Nolan's Joker is arguably one of the most terrifying depictions of the character on screen, Burton is the master at portraying the slippery weirdness of the Penguin.

Thankfully, we stumbled across an incredible body of work by artist Rafa Toro, who has illustrated the various versions of Batman villains all in glorious gif form, which should help you make that decision.

All answers in the comments below, on a postcard or by carrier pigeon welcome.
