Batman Vs. Two-Face Release Date Confirmed, Bonus Features Revealed

15 August 2017 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last year, Warner Bros. treated us with the awesome Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, which saw the likes of Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar reprise their roles of Batman, Robin and Catwoman, respectively. Being essentially the beginning to a fourth season we never received, it surpassed expectations by retaining the feel of the classic 1960’s television series, while also featuring grandiose action scenes that could’ve never been accomplished on the budget of the show.

Having said that, we’re thrilled to see that its sequel, Batman vs. Two-Face, looks like it may be even better. In addition to the return of the aforementioned actors, expect William Shatner to lend his pipes to the dichotomous Harvey Dent, a character who never actually appeared on the TV show itself during its original run.

As for the rest of the major players, here goes: Jeff Bergman (Joker, Bookworm, Desmond Dumas), Sirena Irwin (Dr. »

21 July 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

There are typically a lot of Batmen at Comic-Con, but only one was the subject of a star-filled tribute.

Filmmaker Kevin Smith, producer James Tucker, actors Ralph Garman and Lee Meriwether, and about a thousand fans paid tribute to the late Adam West at the pop culture convention Thursday night.

West played Batman in the 1960s TV series and later voiced the character of Mayor West on Family Guy. He died last month at age 88.

Smith said he was about 4 years old when he first saw West in Batman on a black-and-white TV.

DC All Access Remembers Adam West, Previews iZombie Season Finale

21 June 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By now, you’re well aware that the world lost one of the biggest icons the superhero genre has ever produced with the passing of Adam West less than two weeks ago. Sure, he may have been the third actor to portray Batman in live action, but “The Bright Knight” was unarguably the first to put his stamp on the character and turn it into a pop culture phenomenon.

Having played the Caped Crusader across three seasons of television and in a silver screen outing in 1966, West actually continued voicing the timeless hero in various animated series for decades to come. Not only that, but recent years have seen a resurgence made by his iteration of the character, thanks to Fox (the studio that produced the TV series) and Warner Bros. (the company that owns Batman) patching things up. And due to their cutting of red tape, an animated movie (with a sequel on the way) and a line of action figures have since made the world a better place.

Thus, it was only fitting that the stars came out to honor the legend’s memory by lighting a Batsignal in Los Angeles. Among those in attendance were colleagues such as Burt Ward (Robin) and Lee Meriwether (Catwoman), in addition to DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee and legions of fans who were fortunate enough to be there. And, fortunately for those of us who were unable to partake, DC All Access was able to bring the event to us.

Aside from that, today’s episode also looked ahead to next week’s season finale of iZombie. According to lead actress Rose McIver, they’re going to payoff this whole looming threat of a zombie virus outbreak in a big way. Sure, this show is a much different beast than The Walking Dead, but you can’t play with such horrific themes and not take them to their logical conclusion at some point.

So, after paying your respects to Batman and savoring the last vestige of DC TV until the fall, be sure to watch the rest of the video at the top for the latest in publishing news. »

Watch the Bat-Signal Light Up L.A. in Honor of Adam West

16 June 2017 11:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, we reported that Los Angles mayor Eric Garcetti and police chief Charlie Beck will light the iconic Bat-Signal on the Los Angeles City Hall, in honor of the late great Adam West, who passed away last week at the age of 88, after a long battle with leukemia. In case you couldn't make it to downtown Los Angeles last night, we have a new video of the Bat-Signal being lit, along with excerpts from the speeches given by Eric Garcetti, Charlie Beck and surprise guest Burt Ward, who played Robin in the original Batman TV series alongside Adam West. We have photos from the event as well. Here's what Burt Ward had to say in his speech.

"My friend Adam would want every single one of you to be incredibly happy, and to be joyous, because he spent his entire life as a performer, making people happy, making them laugh, »

16 June 2017 6:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For a few hours on Thursday, Los Angeles stood in for Gotham City as thousands of Bat-fans lined the streets to pay tribute to the late Batman actor Adam West as the famed Batsignal was projected upon L.A.’s City Hall tower.

Burt Ward, who co-starred as the Caped Crusader’s teen sidekick Robin alongside West on on the phenomenally popular and slyly campy 1960s TV series, was on hand to celebrate the life of his longtime friend along with West’s wife Marcelle, his children and other members of his family.

West passed away June 9 at age 88 following a brief battle with leukemia. »

Adam West obituary

Legendary Batman actor struggled to throw off his alter ego in later career but remained beloved of fans

Adam West, who has died aged 88, was one of those actors who had to strive to “live down” not a failure but his greatest success. West, who was synonymous with the role of Batman in the vastly popular, campy TV series of 1966-68, could never escape his alter ego. Although he appeared in scores of films and television series throughout his long career, most reviewers, whatever the role, insisted on referring to him as “TV’s Batman”. However, it is fair to say that West, realising that he owed his fame to the Caped Crusader, was not averse to making oblique allusions to the character in some of his films, and often resorted to self-mockery.

The tall, well-built West, with chiselled good looks and a resonant baritone voice, was perfect casting for »
