Bob Kane said that Van Kilmer was his favorite because he thought Kilmer sucked? Interesting...

I thought Batman forever had a lot of problems, but I remember Kilmer as being pretty solid, given the quality of the material.

Val said in a recent interview in England (promoting bang bang kiss kiss) that he never wanted to do the forever storyline, he wanted what the first two batman's got or to do an origin story... but he gave props to Bale.

For me Val was great, he had the best dark sinister batman potential but the script just wasn't right. Bale is more cartoony and funky, which I like as well, I thought his representation of a young Bruce was great, but his batman voice must've hurt to pull off though, it was a bit too raspy for me, but I loved every second of the film to care.

Dont know if this has been covered yet but the main reason Kilmer did not continue as Batman was because Schumacher found him very difficult to work with.There were reports that he beat up schumacher and got into fights with the screenwriters because he wanted to do a more serious batman than what they had in mind for him.Thats why George Clooney replaced him in the next film.Kilmer since then has had trouble getting work in films because of his bad reputation he now has because of that.

I don't think i remember 1 "Forever" Batman line.

thank god he wasn't alive to see, with horror, what they did to the Batman mythos.

I love Burton and am a fan of Keaton's Batman and that's why I can't stand Kilmer because he was the closest one could get to Bruce Wayne and the 40's Batman. As Bruce, Val was handsome and charming, a socialite, wasn't always dark and broody. He had the best Batman voice (after Conroy), a perfect body for the role and he knew martial arts. Looking that way, Keaton becomes secondary to him and I can't stand that. Yet why I like Keaton's Batman is that he was original - his expressions, his mood, way of talking, attitude when he dons the cape and cowl. Although very opposite to the comics, I love his Bruce Wayne as broody, lost (yet not that he's not confident) and sometimes nuts. His dark side get reflected on his public persona and sometimes he does act like Bruce Wayne when he's Batman - a very complex character.

Bale imo was the best batman. Val Kilmer as a batman was a failure.

Val Kilmer was best BATMAN in my opinion. Was a fairly average Bruce Wayne.

Keaton was a good Wayne but a terrible Batman. Bale did a good job overall and is probably the most balanced and has an excellent Bruce Wayne.

Clooney can go die in a hole.
