Update With Val Kilmer Another Batman has praised Adam West: Val Kilmer. “He was always so kind when we met,” said Kilmer, star of 1995’s Batman Forever. See his tweet below.

Previous Among the many reactions to Adam West’s death pouring out from Hollywood, only one immediately hit social media from an actor who has also worn the Bat-cowl.

Ben Affleck, tweeted about the Bat legend (see below). Affleck starred as the Caped Crusader in last year’s Batman V. Superman, and will return as Batman in Justice League, which is out Nov. 17.

Thank you for showing us all how it’s done.”

Here’s the full tweet:
