Val Kilmer Dons The BATMAN Cowl Again For LIFE'S TOO SHORT

Val Kilmer Dons The BATMAN Cowl Again For LIFE'S TOO SHORT

The actor, who played the Caped Crusader in Batman Forever, made a guest appearance on the British tv series alongside his Willow co-star Warwick Davis. In the following hilarious skit, Kilmer wears the cowl again in an attempt to surprise Davis' bemused secretary..

"Is it the cartoon version?" That was an excerpt from the Life's Too Short Easter special. The show itself is written by Ricky Gervais and one season in (I'm not even sure it's getting a second?) it's really only sporadically funny to be honest, but this episode is definitely worth tracking down in full. Kilmer is looking pretty good too - am I the only one who'd actually kinda like to see that Willow sequel for real? Oh, okay then..

Val's definitely lost some weight. But is it just me or does he always appear stoned now. I know he's quite a fan of the bud, but he's giving Jeff Bridges, James Franco and Snoop Dog a run for their money. Funny stuff stuff though. Great show.

If given a proper script and tone, Val Kilmer could've been the best live action Batman, but...........
RorMachine - 4/9/2013, 5:23 PM
lol, there was nothing uniquely British about that! I think you mean "I don't get humor":)
Emjeed - 4/9/2013, 5:25 PM
Damn! Val kilmer lost weight
SuperDude001 - 4/9/2013, 5:26 PM
Kinda cool. Good to see Kilmer losing weight tbh. Wasn't this on like two weeks ago? Idk, I liked the series but missed the special, seemed like Gervais just doesn't have faith in it by missing a second series and it just made me hesitant to watch.

MDHENDRICKS @ Yeah that wasn't exactly British humour...that was just humour...I'll admit not the most hilarious thing, but that wasn't 'British' humour.
Nick56 - 4/9/2013, 5:28 PM

marvel72 - 4/9/2013, 5:34 PM

val kilmer was bob kane's favorite batman.
marvel72 - 4/9/2013, 5:37 PM

did you watch wrestlemania it was a bit disappointing a couple of good matches.

the next night on raw that crowd made that show better than wrestlemania.
RorMachine - 4/9/2013, 5:39 PM
Grif, nah NOTHING is as funny as that..

SuperDude001 - 4/9/2013, 5:49 PM
Ahh I forgot the Liam Neeson has aids bit, yeah that was hilarious!...Yeah I'm gonna watch the easter special, that reminded me why I watched the show in the first place.
TyrantBoss - 4/9/2013, 5:54 PM
Val has to get back in shape if he is going to make the Top Gun sequel.
Tony93 - 4/9/2013, 5:55 PM
Oh yes.. great nostalgia of my childhood..
I loved this movie

D117 - 4/9/2013, 5:55 PM
Lmfaoo too funny, especially that Liam Neeson one.
marvel72 - 4/9/2013, 5:56 PM

the last three matches & the tag team championship were the best matches.

raw was really good booing the faces & cheering the heels,some the chants "sexual chocolate" & "fandango's theme" classic.

i also liked when cena was talking about doing a little dance & maybe doing a "heel turn",the crowd loved that.

This is actually pretty funny. Sadly though, it's more like Fat Man... :-S
GodzillaKart - 4/9/2013, 6:37 PM
Holy Crap! One of the only guys almost as bad as Bale at playing Batman. Funny bit.
superherofan21 - 4/9/2013, 6:48 PM
I still think Batman Forever was pretty good. Nothing spectacular, but definitely better than the film that came before it and the film that came after...
NeoBaggins - 4/9/2013, 6:49 PM
Kilmer looked the best in the suit out of all the Burton Shoemaker films. And was definitely Bruce Wayne over the debacles before him.
Azrael725 - 4/9/2013, 7:13 PM
I actually thought Val Kilmer looked the best in the suit and he was a pretty good Bruce Wayne. I think he could've been a good Batman too if it weren't for Shoemacher.
This was a pretty funny bit. Batman Forever was the first Batman movie I ever saw and owned. I have home video of me getting it for Christmas on VHS haha
thingrock4 - 4/9/2013, 7:35 PM
Love Val Kilmer. AWESOME.

Saw The Big Bang Theory for the first time on a plane yesterday. Terrible sit com with fan boy reference. Nothing more.
BritishMonkey - 4/9/2013, 7:53 PM
Yeah, that was funny.
BIGBMH - 4/9/2013, 7:58 PM
Haha! He's a good sport!
SpideyQuad - 4/9/2013, 8:07 PM
Sorry, you may have liked the movies but cancer throat Batman was not the best. That guy that fought the Predator in that 5 minute short was a much better Batman than cancer throat.
BlazinTexan - 4/9/2013, 8:08 PM
Give me a sword Eric and I'll win this war for you!!!!!!
BTW Val looks great here hes actually in good shape . But I bet everyone saying hes still fat is a real Adonis there self < sarcasm
Oh and willow looks fantastic on Blu
SigmaCenturion - 4/9/2013, 8:21 PM

CapFanLex005 - 4/9/2013, 8:23 PM
i love this show so much
spartan6888 - 4/9/2013, 8:24 PM
What a bimbo! She didn't even know who Val Kilmer was!
thewonderer - 4/9/2013, 9:15 PM
Batmans voice has been described as throaty and hoarse in the comics.

People critique Bales voice so hard because they are used to the years of Conroys voice.

Bale nailed the role, and insulting his voice is like insulting Superman for lack of undies in Man of Steel. Probably even more stuff.
