And the Joker got away

I love Nicole Kidman. Extremely gorgeous and a phenomenal actor, I'll see anything she's in just because she's in it. Sadly though, there wasn't much she could do for Batman Forever as Dr. Chase Meridian (however a grand pursuit she is). That movie was the first of two blights on the Batman legacy, and thankfully they've been replaced by darker, more true movies in Christopher Nolan's take on the franchise. With that being said, it really shouldn't come as a surprise that the Batmobile from that movie fetched $500,000 less than it was expected to fetch in an auction. According to, the Batmobile was sold last week through RM Auctions from the Al Wiseman Collection. Originally expected to fetch between $600,000 and $800,000, the final price was $297,000. It could've been because of the horrible movie it was associated with, or it could be because there was a laundry list of limitations for the owner, such as not being able to actually drive it in public. So whoever won basically paid close to $300,000 for a lawn ornament that will always be a reminder of how bad that movie was. Still not as bad as the following movie though, Batman and Robin. And yes, that is a gratuitous picture of Nicole Kidman as Dr. Chase Meridian. I had to have some image to wipe out all the bad from that movie. Batman Forever Batmobile sells for cheap
