Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, The "Dark Knight" Trilogy (2005-2012)
When Christopher Nolan first set out to revamp Batman on the big screen, he stayed away from the usual well. He opted for two new villains (Scarecrow and Ra's al Ghul) and he told the Caped Crusader's origin story on film for the first time ever. He also brought in the character of Lucius Fox to serve as an ambassador of sorts between Bruce Wayne and the technical gadgetry that we'd see Batman employ throughout the series, and in Morgan Freeman he found an actor able to lift that character to heights never before achieved in the comics. It was a stroke of genius to make him "Q" to Batman's Bond and that's why he's such a memorable addition to the cinematic mythos.
