Voted Bruce Wayne, of course!

As for casting...

Keaten was a SUPERB Batman. His eyes, his jaw, his voice - nailed it.

Although I'm not a big fan of the Nolan Bat flicks, Christian Bale was probably the best film version we've had of Bruce Wayne. Shame he never really eased into a good Batman voice.

Mark Ruffalo was terrific as Banner in the Avengers film, but probably the Edward Norton film is the best Hulk film we've had. The Eric Bana one is interesting too, in some ways more like a horror story!

Have to say, almost all the Batman animated shows, either `The Animated Series' from the 90's, `Batman Beyond' and `Brave and the Bold' etc are all hugely entertaining, all offering great different interpretations of Batman!

Bruce Wayne gets the vote.
 
I too liked Keaton as Batman, however he should have played Batman in the current films instead of Bale as those movies were better than those Keaton were in. 
 
I loved Ruffalo as Banner, he just seems to have that quiet coolness about his character.

Hmm.....Batman is a better character than the Hulk.......but Keaton...seriously? I thought he was badly cast  as Batman. Bale is the definitive Batman imho.....at least so far.

oh I think coolest would have to go to Banner/Hulk, especially as portrayed by Mark Ruffalo who turned in a more subtle performance than the always acting Chris Bale.    I mean I love Bats but c'mon:  "That's my secret, I'm always angry".   Brilliant.

Hulk is much mote difficult to conway to the big screen. Because the transition from geeky scientist to rumbling, smashing Hulk is a challage to make it dynamic.

Wayne does not need to transform to become Batman, he simply changes his clothes, ergo Wayne is Batman.

Therefore since Batman is cooler than Banner, Wayne must also be cooler than Banner by default.
 
However, The Hulk is far cooler than Batman because Batman is just a man in a Hallowe'en costume...
 
In the Marvel Universe Banner is far more smarter than Stark on an intellectual level, but that doesn't make him cooler.
 
 
 
 
If we're picking dudes who played the best Hulk, then I'm voting for big Lou, not some CGI programmer.
...that's just green greasepaint, a wig and a pair of comedy stick-on eye brows. No CGI necessary.

And another thing--  half of Bruce Wayne is fake; the whole "eccentric playboy" thing we know is bogus and part of covering his lonely, dark, angry self.    At lest Banner is exactly what he appaers to be, a nerdy genius with anger issues.
