Batnipples is a poster that sums up Joel Schumacher's two Batman movies- Batman Forever (1995) and Batman and Robin (1997).

Batman Forever saw Val Kilmer's Batman find a partner in Chris O'Donnell's Robin just in time to fight off Tommy Lee Jones' Two Face and Jim Carrey's Riddler. The film was a financial success but received mixed reviews.

Batman and Robin starred George Clooney and Chris O'Donnell as the dynamic duo who faced the combined threats of Uma Thurman's plant loving Poison Ivy and Arnold Schwarzenegger's frosty Mr Freeze. Alicia Silverstone appeared as Batgirl. Reaction to the film was mostly negative.

Both films featured Batsuits with very visible nipples which were eventually labelled as "Batnipples" by fans. The Batnipples are just one example of the many things wrong with Batman Forever and Batman and Robin
