The first brief clip shows Val Kilmer, who portrayed Bruce Wayne in the 1995 flick Batman Forever, alongside a filmmaker friend producing a comedy sketch. Over the course of the bizarre video, Kilmer and his pal don various masks and outfits that resemble the caped crusader. Towards the end of the clip, the Top Gun alum puts on the Batman mask while saying, "It's been a while."
Kilmer shared the first video on Twitter with the caption: "#NationalSuperheroDay brings us a comedy by david Choe with me at his studio yesterday."
After the first video was released, Kilmer was met with a largely positive response from his adoring fans. Because it was so well-received, Kilmer treated his followers to another clip with more footage.
He shared the second video with the caption: "More for #NationalSuperheroDay by #davidChoe. Stay close to his feeds he's gonna change how people understand art in ONE SHOW! in LA/July"
After Kilmer posted the videos, Twitter erupted with responses.

When Val Kilmer isn't making goofy Batman videos, he has reportedly been battling cancer. During a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA), Kilmer answered a fan question and admitted for the first time to a "healing of cancer."
"A while ago, Michael Douglas claimed you had terminal cancer," the fan asked. "What was the story behind that?"
Kilmer responded by writing: "[Douglas] was probably trying to help me cause press probably asked where I was these days, and I did have a healing of cancer, but my tongue is still swollen altho healing all the time. Because I don't sound my normal self yet people think I may still be under the weather."
Before last week's Reddit AMA, Kilmer denied having cancer. Earlier this year, he spoke out about Douglas' comments and said that he was "misinformed."
"I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed," Kilmer wrote. "The last time I spoke to him was almost two years
