Batman (Val Kilmer) Film Batman Forever
In Batman Forever, Val Kilmer played Bruce Wayne/Batman. The actor had been cast to play the role of Batman after Michael Keaton opted not to reprise the part. The film received mixed reviews, but it did well at the box office.
Director Joel Schumacher eschewed the dark tone of the Tim Burton films and instead adapted the character to be a more human and heroic figure.
The film also portrayed Bruce Wayne as a much more public person and less neurotic than the previous two movies had done.
As a result, Batman Forever was more favorable to critics than the previous two movies. The film was a box office success with $336.6 million in worldwide revenue.
It also became the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time, a distinction it holds to this day
Tahun 1995 Film Batman Forever
But although it did receive positive reviews, some criticized the performance of Kilmer as Batman, with others praising his portrayal.
In Val, an autobiographical documentary released last year by Amazon Studios and A24, Kilmer opens up about his reasons
for not returning to the role of Batman in another film. He admits that the intense experience of working with a heavy Batsuit left him feeling isolated and uneasy.
He also says he was bored with the role and didn’t feel like he grew as an actor while he was in it, which is why he decided not to return for Batman & Robin (1997).
He says that his scheduling conflicts with The Saint made it impossible for him to continue playing the character after Forever.
But he’s still very fond of the character and enjoys talking about it with fans at Comic-Cons. In fact, the documentary even includes a video of him quoting Mark Twain in order to describe what Batman is all about.
Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones) Film Batman Forever
Tommy Lee Jones played Two-Face in Batman Forever, a role that he was not originally intended to play. Initially, Billy Dee Williams was cast as Dent in the film. However, director Joel Schumacher decided that he would be more comfortable playing the character with Jones.
Upon receiving brain damage from acid, Dent developed a second personality and became a bloodthirsty and eccentric psychopath named Two-Face. He used a double headed coin, one side scarred, to determine his actions.
After Two-Face escaped Arkham Asylum, he robbed the Second Bank of Gotham. His henchmen took hostages, but they were quickly caught by a police officer who was able to save a terrified guard.
On the second anniversary of his escape, Two-Face was discovered by Dr. Burton, who alerted the GCPD.
Two-Face then attempted to kill him and Batman, but the two were reunited. The resemblance between the two characters made
Two-Face nervous and he tried to flip his coin again, only to be unsuccessful. This was the final straw for him.
Later, Two-Face found a new ally in Edward Nygma (Jim Carrey), who adopted the persona of the Riddler. He offered Two-Face the opportunity to ally with him in exchange for his help. The two
worked together to solve the “Who is Batman” riddle, and Nygma helped Two-Face steal production capital from a company.
Despite the fact that the film was not well received, it still served as an important step in the evolution of the character. It also proved that the studio was not afraid to make changes to the tone
of Batman. This was especially true in the wake of Tim Burton’s departure from the franchise after Batman Returns.
Edward Nygma (Jim Carrey)
Film Batman Forever Batman and Robin are chasing the villainous duo of Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones) and Edward Nygma, a former Wayne Enterprises employee. Nygma invented a device that could beam
television signals directly into someone’s brain. He approaches Bruce Wayne (Batman’s civilian identity) with the invention, but Bruce rejects it.
After killing his supervisor and staging it as a suicide, Nygma plots revenge against Bruce by sending riddles to him.
When Bruce discovers that the Riddler has been stalking him, he finds Nygma’s lair on Claw Island outside Gotham.
In this version, Nygma is a computer-genius who became obsessed with Bruce Wayne (Batman’s civilian name).
He believes that he and the Dark Knight are kindred spirits, and so he designs an invention for transmitting television images into people’s minds.
He tries to convince Bruce to sell the device to the FBI, but Bruce refuses. Eventually, Nygma

Film Batman Forever resigns from Wayne Enterprises and becomes the Riddler, leaving riddles at scenes of crime.
Nygma’s wrath is quelled when Batman and Robin come to Claw Island, where he and Two-Face have taken up residence on a metal-fabricated artificial island. They approach the island with a Sonar Batsuit and a Batboat.
But the Riddler’s wrath is not yet quenched when he and Two-Face seize Chase, destroy her Batcave, and leave behind a fourth riddle. Once Bruce and Alfred crack these riddles, they realize
that Nygma is the Riddler himself, and he and Two-Face are now the villainous duo of Batman and Robin.
It was a risky choice to go with a more campy vibe for Batman Forever, but director Joel Schumacher’s decision worked well. It gave his cast and his movie the energy it needed to make a
fun action-packed blockbuster that also managed to be an homage to Tim Burton’s previous two films, while still feeling timeless and resonant.
Robin (Rene Russo)
Film Batman Forever After a brief lull, Batman is back in action with his newest partner, Robin. Former circus acrobat Dick Grayson, his family killed by Two-Face,
has become Bruce Wayne’s ward and he begs the billionaire to let him join the bat-winged crusade as Robin the Boy Wonder.
In the course of saving Gotham City, Batman and Robin arrive at Riddler and Two-Face’s lair on Claw Island. Robin nearly kills Two-Face, but he spares him and is captured. He is confined to
tubes above a deadly drop, giving Batman the chance to save only one hostage. But Batman distracts the
Riddler with a riddle and he destroys Two-Face’s brainwave receiver with a Batarang, draining his mind and allowing him to be freed.
Meanwhile, a mysterious Box is delivering strange riddles to Batman and his butler Alfred. These are leading the
Tommy Lee Jones
billionaire to a criminal psychologist named Dr. Chase Meridian (Kidman), who he feels might be able to help him cope with the resurfacing of his parents’ murders.
However, he quickly discovers that she’s not what he seems. When he finally visits her, she tells him she’s falling in love with him and reveals that she’s secretly the daughter of one of Bruce’s enemies.
As she explains to him, she’s also fascinated by his dual nature: as both a crime fighter and a loving father. But when the Box blows up in his face, and he’s kidnapped by The Riddler and Two-Face, Bruce is left with no choice but to accept Dick as his new partner.
Though not as harshly criticized as the previous film, Batman & Robin, Batman Forever still ranks as one of the worst films ever made. It’s heavy, loud, graceless and ungainly–as you might expect
from a Jim Carrey picture–but it does get a lot stronger as it goes along, and it is still enjoyable enough for fans of the Batman series.
Dr. Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman)
Batman Forever is the third film in the Batman franchise, directed by Joel Schumacher. It was the first film to explore Batman’s psychology more explicitly, indicating that his character is deeply affected by trauma, and may even suffer from survivor’s guilt.
The movie was released in theaters on November 17, 1995. It was a critical and commercial success. It also earned three Academy Awards nominations: Best Picture, Visual Effects and Sound.
After learning of his parents’ murder, Bruce Wayne questions his act of vengeance and struggles with his identity as a crime fighter.
He becomes romantically involved with psychiatrist Dr. Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman), who tries to help him with his mental issues.
When Two-Face holds a hostage in a bank vault, Batman consults with Dr. Meridian, who becomes enamored with him.
She suggests that the rogue detective needs a psychiatrist to help him work through his problems. She believes that
Gotham City is a place where mental illness is rampant, and that criminals are often ill-treated by the police.
Her advice helps Bruce overcome his fear of killing and become more compassionate. She also recommends that he adopt a child, Dick Grayson (Bryan Cranston), who is orphaned and unable to care for himself.
As the movie progresses, Dick discovers that Bruce is Batman and asks to join him in crime-fighting. However, Bruce refuses and Dick stays at Wayne Manor as a ward.
Despite the odd anomalies in production, Batman Forever was a remarkably successful film. It was one of the only ones in the franchise to focus on psychological issues and was the first to address
them more specifically than previous Burton movies. It was also the first to explicitly depict a villain who had been driven insane by a crime.
