McDonalds Batman Forever glass mugs are glass mugs given away by the fast food chain McDonalds in 1995 to promote the release of the film Batman Forever.
Batman Forever was released in 1995, as a follow up the 1992 Tim Burton film Batman Returns. The film was a departure from the darker tone of the previous two films, and its visual style and story was more family friendly after Warner Bros decided Burton’s style was limiting the franchise’s box office success.
The film starred Val Kilmer as Batman, with Chris O’Donnell as Robin, Jim Carrey as the Riddler and Tommy Lee Jones as Two Face.

There are four mugs in the set, each of which is clear glass with an engraving of a character from the film. The mugs featuring Batman and Robin measure 4 ¼” tall, whereas the two mugs featuring the film’s villains the Riddler and Harvey ‘Two Face’ Dent are small, measuring 3 ¼”.
How much are McDonalds Batman Forever mugs worth
The Batman Forever mugs were mass-produced in large numbers and sold around the world, meaning they have currently have little or no value as rare collectibles. However, they are still popular with collectors of Batman memorabilia or people who specialise in promotional gifts, and complete sets can be easily purchased on sites such as eBay for $5 - $10.
