Having reprised the role of the Dark Knight for the animated movie Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders this year, Adam West has revealed that he’s now keen on another DC role, as he’d like to cameo in Ben Affleck’s The Batman – and he even has a specific role in mind.
“Absolutely,” said West when asked by Comic Book if he’s keen on a cameo in the DC Extended Universe. “You know what I’d love to do? Those guys are all wonderful talents in their own ways, and they approach the role differently, but if I could approach it in a darker way, of course, in a more serious way, however, it would be wonderful to play Bruce Wayne’s father coming back. You know he was murdered, but coming back one dark and stormy lightning-riven night through a library window. Bruce Wayne is there thinking, »

Adam West just made his long-anticipated comeback as Bruce Wayne in the DC animated feature Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. Fans and critics have been responding well to the movie and a sequel has already been greenlit. But it looks like Adam West is interested in returning to the live action Batman world too, just not as Bruce Wayne. The actor recently revealed that he would like to cameo in Ben Affleck's upcoming Dceu movie The Batman and even stated he who he'd like to play.
In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Adam West revealed that he would love to have a small role in The Batman. He spent quite a bit of time playing Batman himself in the 60s Batman TV series, but now he wants to play the role of Thomas Wayne in Ben Affleck's new Batman movie. Here is what he had to say about it. »
Warner Bros. has released a clip from Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, the upcoming animated movie which sees Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar reprising their roles as Batman, Robin and Catwoman from the classic 1960s TV series; check it out below after the official synopsis…
It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. This time, the four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It’s a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil … and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray. »

At the New York Comic Con this past weekend, Warner Bros. announced that next year will see the release of Batman vs. Two-Face, a follow-up to the upcoming Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, with William Shatner voicing Harvey Dent opposite Adam West’s Caped Crusader.
Batman vs. Two-Face joins the previously announced slate of Justice League Dark, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract and Batman and Harley Quinn, and now thanks to We Got This Covered, we may have an idea of three more potential movies in the pipeline from DC Animation.
According to the site, a survey was handed out during a recent screening of Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, which suggested that an adaptation of the DC/Idw crossover Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could be on the cards, along with a Wonder Woman ’77 movie 9presumably featuring the return of Lynda Carter, who is currently guest »

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. held a special theatrical event for their highly-anticipated animated film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, which reunites original Batman TV series stars Adam West and Burt Ward. During this two-night event, the studio reportedly handed out surveys to moviegoers in select theaters, to gauge their response for future animated movie projects. One of these mentioned in the survey will certainly get some fans very excited, a crossover of Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
A source for We Got This Covered attended one of these screenings, and was given this survey. One of the potential movies listed was a Batman and Ninja Turtles crossover project, which would most likely be an adaptation of a recent comic book crossover. Last year, DC Comics and Idw teamed up for a six-issue monthly mini-series, where both the comic book versions of Batman and the turtles meet up. »
Over the past few years, Warner Home Video has played it safe when it comes to choosing which characters are granted headlining privileges in their animated movies. In other words, it’s pretty much been pared down to the proven money makers: Batman and Justice League. And, while we recently got confirmation that 2017’s direct-to-video animation slate shall be a bit more ambitious, it has nothing on what may follow.
Earlier this week, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders was given a two-day limited theatrical engagement, allowing fans to view the film ahead of its November 1 Blu-Ray release. What’s especially interesting is what happened at select multiplexes.
You see, an anonymous source close to We Got This Covered was handed a survey and one of the questions included was in regards to certain animated films moviegoers may be interested in seeing. Hey, if you can get Adam West and »

In “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” Batman and Robin have their hands full when Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman raise hell in Gotham City. The animated DC film is directed by Rick Morales and features the original 1966 “Batman” series cast: Adam West voicing Batman, Burt Ward voicing Robin, and Julie Newmar voicing Catwoman.
The movie is now available in Digital HD, and so far critics are loving this new Batman adventure.
Scott Mendelson of Forbes called “Return of the Caped Crusader” the “best Batman movie of the year.”
“‘Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders’ is a celebration of one of the most critical interpretations of the original character, one that offers a full-throated defense of everything it was regardless of how it is viewed in hindsight…It could use some tightening, but it’s totally entertaining while celebrating the legacy of its televised predecessor. It understands that the »

With the question of who's playing James Bond in James Bond 25 unresolved, we look back at the casting conundrums 007 has faced before.
Since 1962, fewer men have played James Bond than have walked on the moon. Despite the relatively long turnaround of the role, the subject of who might follow in the footsteps of Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig in the future has fuelled many column inches and tabloid splashes.
It feels as if speculation about the seventh 007 in Eon Productions' long-lived spy franchise has been at fever pitch since this time last year, when Craig was doing the promotional rounds for Spectre and commented that he would rather “slash [his] wrists” than play Bond again. It's only after a year of constant reports on the subject that his far more optimistic comments at last weekend's New Yorker Festival »

Regardless of your feelings about Adam West as Batman, you can't deny that his performance in the 1966 Batman TV series left an indelible impression on popular culture. To this day, people who have never even seen an episode of that show will hum some version of that incredible Neil Hefti theme tune whenever Batman comes into the conversation.
West's Batman was played for laughs. His ultra-serious caped crusader delivered intentionally ridiculous dialogue with impossible sincerity and deadpan timing. And he wasn't afraid of spandex, wearing a costume that was a literal translation of the blue and grey skintight gear from the comics, making him an even more outrageous figure in a series that was already full of them.

Following on from the huge success of Smallville, is shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise to hear that Warner Bros were actively exploring the idea of a Batman prequel series. A deal was then struck with Fox, which allowed Warner’s to finally release the original Adam West adventures on Blu-ray, in exchange for the television rights to each and every character within the Batman universe. Not a bad arrangement, considering that Fox’s previous contractual hold over the original series had been a been a big headache for both fans and studio executives for many years.
This resulted in the birth of Gotham, a dark combination of gothic horror and crime noir. As you might have assumed, the series chronicles the events that lead to the downfall of Gotham city and the rise of the Dark Knight. However, rather than focusing solely on a young Bruce Wayne, »

How to word this properly? William Shatner is known for his distinctive acting style, unusual vocal intonation, and very singular form of gravitas. Because of this, he doesn’t fit easily into all movies or TV shows. But there is a subset of projects in which his participation in an absolute boon. And the sequel to the upcoming Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders is probably one of them. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 85-year-old former Star Trek star will be joining Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin), and possibly Julie Newmar (Catwoman) in the sound booth to lend voices to the animated continuation of ABC’s late-’60s camp classic TV show, Batman.
Shatner will be imbuing the arch-villain Harvey Dent/Two-Face with his sonorous articulations. The facially scarred, chance-obsessed criminal has been portrayed onscreen numerous times before, by actors such as Tommy Lee Jones in 1995’s ...

Something that I’ve come to learn over the years has been to pay attention to any panel or premiere pertaining to a DC animated movie held at San Diego or New York Comic-Con because they tend to yield some exciting news. Not surprisingly, last night’s world premiere of Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders at Nycc was followed by the announcement of a sequel: Batman vs. Two-Face.
For those unfamiliar, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders is an animated film that sees Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar return to their iconic roles voicing Batman, Robin, and Catwoman, respectively, with new talent filling in for cast members who have unfortunately passed away.
While it is certainly thrilling to see those iterations of those characters once again being brought to life, Batman vs. Two-Face is especially worthy of attention because not only did Two-Face never appear on the classic television series, »

Despite Gotham continuing to play with every toy in the box as it were, I must admit that Benedict Samuel’s performance as Jervis Tetch/The Mad Hatter in this past Monday’s episode was nothing short of brilliant. His various nuances and display of showmanship have no doubt placed him among the pantheon of stellar villainous performances seen in this young series. Considering that the character hadn’t appeared in live action since the Batman TV show that aired in the 1960’s, Samuel certainly did have enough room to make his mark on Tetch’s legacy.
If the plot thread that saw Mad Hatter pursuing his sister, Alice, at no expense enthralled you, then strap yourself in because it looks like the situation will get much more intense in “Mad City: New Day Rising.” Personally, I’m most interested to see the history between those two detailed and why »
