Val Kilmer In His Greatest Role (And Hat) Since Real Genius

Val Kilmer In His Greatest Role (And Hat) Since Real Genius

When film legend Val Kilmer sinks his teeth into the role of the main villain in Spider-Man: Edge of Time, someone’s got to die.

Walker Sloan is a scientist from the future that travels back in time to found mega-corporation Alchemax before its time in Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Changing the future affects the past, and two Spider-Men must team up to save two wildly different days. And who’s the first actor that comes to mind when you think mad scientist? Val Kilmer, of course.

OK, maybe not, but he did play a relatively mad scientist in the 1985 comedy Real Genius, which in my opinion makes him more than qualified. Besides, have you seen the man’s hat? That there’s a voice acting hat. Mess with that hat, and someone’s got to die.


  • Not only do they have a stupid post with a stupid clip – they have put the stupid clip in twice!

    *face palm*

    Also.. man val kilmer has gotten old and husky!

    • Kotaku can’t embed for shit.

      But yeah… Goddamn Val Kilmer has let himself go. And this is one of the more flattering clips I’ve seen of him recently. Thank god we didn’t see the rest of his torso.

  • I had a massive man-crush on this guy he used to be the prettiest man there was. I still like him but he got kinda old and fat 🙁

    Maybe voice acting is the place for him now, lol.

    Tombstone was awesome and he was an absolutely epic Doc Holiday.

  • Wow, ITT people who don’t know what happens when one gets older and doesn’t get major plastic surgery or spends thousands of dollars on personal trainers and gym time…

    I say props to Kilmer for aging like a real person.
