Batman Forever

Batman Forever (1995) (official on-screen title is simply "Forever") is regarded by some as less serious than Batman and the 1992 sequel Batman Returns. This third film in the modern series of live-action Batman movies stars Val Kilmer as Batman and Chris O'Donnell as Robin. The villains in this movie are The Riddler, played by Jim Carrey, and Two-Face/Harvey Dent, a role played in the original 1989 movie by Billy Dee Williams, but assumed here by Tommy Lee Jones. It was directed by Joel Schumacher, who took over the film franchise from Tim Burton, this film's producer.

This sequel follows Two-Face's alliance with The Riddler to destroy Batman. It also tells the origin story of Robin (a familiar character not seen in any previous Batman film in the Tim Burton era).
