The passing of Adam West was truly heartbreaking. The work he did in his long career meant a lot to so many of us, and honestly we wish he could live forever. However, even though he may not be around, his legacy is continuing on.
Adam West is probably best known for his portrayal as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the wonderfully campy television show simply titled Batman. Three seasons of the show aired and they also made on feature length film which is still beloved to this day.
West’s portrayal of Batman has been such a fan-favorite that they decided to bring him back. Last year, they decided to create an animated version called Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders which was well received.
The film included Julie Newmar back in her catsuit as Catwoman, Adam West as Batman and even Burt Ward back as the Boy Wonder!
A sequel was made but unfortunately West passed away before he could see it completed. However, the new film is now done and the trailer is out for us all to enjoy his continuing legacy.
Adam West is an absolute legend, and no one can do Batman like he does. While he obviously wasn’t really the typical “Batman” age anymore, the studio found a way around that by making the movie animated.
In all honesty, his show was so goofy and campy that it was basically a cartoon anyways, so why not take it to the next level?
The cartoon version of Return of the Caped Crusaders did well so they made the sequel which includes another legendary actor: William Shatner.
The new animated feature is called Batman vs. Two-Face and it looks amazing. William Shatner will be play Two-Face, AKA Harvey Dent, and both Burt Ward and Adam West are back as Robin and Batman respectively.
They also will be once again joined by the one and only Julie Newmar, who voices Catwoman. Many of the classic villains from the 1966 series will make an appearance, including The Joker, The Riddler, Penguin and EggHead.
It will be the perfect way to say goodbye to the man we all loved so much, and a character who we hold near and dear to our hearts.
If you want to order the movie, it is now available for pre-order and will be released on October 17th, 2017 on BluRay and DVD.
