The tone of Batman Forever was to be a family friendly and FUN experience for all, yes the character of Batman is supposed to be serious I'm referring to the tone of the film itself.
It's not the first time Batman himself had a comedic remark in a film, Keaton had them in 89 " You weigh a little bit more than 108" and in BR when in the batmobile chase "Ok now I'm a little worried". Even in the comics or BTAS Batman says funny remarks or small jokes once in a while.
