I wondered if Batman & Robin made a profit. Looks like might've, tho I'm not sure how much it cost to market, or how many toys it sold.

Budget   $125–160 million[1][2][3]
Box office   $238.2 million[4]

I believe toy and merchandise sales did help it as well.

I've not been able to get exact figures, but a quick google search suggests that after you add on marketing costs, it more or less broke even. I can't find anywhere which gives a value of what was actually spent on marketing, but I don't have a great deal of time to research it right now unfortunately.

What an expensive indulgence.  I saw it in a theater new and was one eye-roll after another.   Thumbdown Bluesad

It most likely made lots of money when it was released to VHS (and DVD) for rental and purchase. According to Billboard video rentals raked in $15 Billion in 1997. I'm sure Batman & Robin got a big slice of that.
Example, Showgirls was a box office flop ($37 million) but made more than $100 million from video rentals alone, not counting sales.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
