SHARE `BATMAN’ STAR SLAPPED WITH $750,000 JUDGMENT

Too bad "Batman Forever" star Val Kilmer doesn't have Bruce Wayne's bank account.

Slapped with a $750,000 federal judgment over a real estate loan, Kilmer and brother Mark Kilmer filed an appeal Friday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to reverse it.The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said it lost the money when the Kilmer brothers failed to honor a loan guarantee made on behalf of their father's real estate development company.

Eugene Miller's company, KEM Inc., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in April 1991 after real estate values dropped. The brothers' company, Valmark, also filed for bankruptcy reorganization, but creditors refused to accept the plan, leaving Valmark liable.

Val Kilmer's attorney said the actor shouldn't have to pay because he wasn't directly involved in the transaction.
