Nothing would make me happier to report than Warner Bros. deciding to reboot Christopher Nolan's doom-and-gloom Batman series by recasting Val Kilmer in the part—preferably due to some sort of time-travel plot that would let Kilmer replace Batman's secret identity of "Bruce Wayne" with, say, "Mark Motherfucking Twain." But alas, that's not the case. (THANKS FOR NOTHING, WARNER BROS.) Instead, we have to settle for Kilmer showing up on Warwick Davis' Life's Too Short. The resultant clip is now my third-favorite thing on the internet, after (1) that Mark Twain business and (2) Kilmer's Twitter feed.
Thanks to my fellow Val Kilmer superfan Robert B. Fortney for the heads up.
