Val Kilmer On Batman: Give Ben Affleck A Chance

by Wochit 0:53 mins

Ben Affleck withstood an initial fan backlash when he was announced as the latest Batman this Thursday. But, at least one member of the fraternity of Dark Knight actors appears to be backing the casting choice. Val Kilmer, who defended Gotham against Jim Carrey's Riddler in Joel Schumacher's 1995 Batman Forever, tweeted that the negative reactions were premature, writing "Give Ben a chance!" The opening number of the Video Music Awards is a big deal, so Lady Gaga is making sure she gives a performance to remember. MTV announced that the pop singer will kick off music's big show by taking the stage to belt out "Applause," the first single from her highly anticipated album Artpop, at Brooklyn's Barclay Center
