Val Kilmer Looks Back on His Time as Batman: 'It Was A Struggle'

“The kind of acting that I’m really interested in, I haven’t done very much in movies,” he revealed at one point in the pic, and added that Batman Forever was a low point in her career.

Val revealed that he was offered the role just days after wandering through an actual bat cave while on a safari in Africa. While he said yes to the part, it wasn’t long before he started to regret it.

“When you’re in [the bat suit], you can barely move and people have to help you stand up and sit down,” Val shared. “You also can’t hear anything and after a while people stop talking to you. It’s very isolating.”

He went on, saying that it “was a struggle for me to get a performance past the suit, and it was frustrating until I realized my performance was just to show up and stand where I was told to.”

The next Batman movie, The Batman, will be out next year.
