When NBC’s DC Comics office comedy Powerless was cancelled, there were still a few episodes that hadn’t yet aired. Many thought they’d remain that way, but because of a cameo by a certain iconic Bat-actor, one of them has now been posted online.
After playing Batman on television, Adam West became more than just a mere actor. He was the definitive version of the character for almost half a century, and that made him truly larger than life. In honor of that talent and impact, the city of Los Angeles held a beautiful and fitting tribute Thursday night.
Adam West returned, with much fanfare, as the iconic Caped Crusader last November with Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. After his recent passing, it was unclear whether he’d actually return for the sequel, Batman vs. Two-Face. Lucky for us, West’s Batman will come to life one last time.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that Adam West helped save Batman and changed what was possible with DC Comics’ Dark Knight Detective.
Adam West, forever known to many as Batman and whose name is synonymous with taking your most famous role and parodying it, has passed away. He was 88.
Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders has a lot of homages to the 1966 show—but according to its writer, there was one more great big one that didn’t make it into the final movie. And it was definitely one of the weirdest references they could’ve found.
If going to the theaters to watch The Killing Joke made you want to take a shower, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders will be more like a Mr. Bubbles bath. With toy submarines. And a puppy.
Here’s a version of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice that I’d enjoy watching. Someone went and set footage from the Adam West, George Reeves and Lynda Carter Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman shows and it works wonderfully.
Nearly fifteen years ago, Corey Feldman and Adam West appeared in Seance (a.k.a. Killer in the Dark), a so-bad-it’s-funny horror film made for just a million dollars. The film was never released, but now the whole thing is online for our chuckling pleasure.
I mean, I'm not complaining - it's not like there's a paucity of Batman merchandise, even Batman '66 these days. But still, not every actor can pull off the demand to get an action figure of themselves rather than a character they're playing. You do you, Adam West!
In celebration of the 75th anniversary, there are hundreds of Batman themed builds floating about the Lego community. This 1966 Batmobile is one of the best that I've seen. Orion Pax has really captured all the cheese-ball greatness of the television show car in this model. I want to build it a lot more than The…
Adam West is Batman and always shall be Batman. And while his TV career donning the cape and cowl was quite successful, the journey after it was much, much harder. The documentary Starring Adam West takes a look at the little known plight of the actor who "peaked" in Gotham.
Rusty Blazenhoff from Blazenfluff tracked Adam West—the actor who played Batman in the 1960s TV series—through the phone book, yellow pages and white pages of Sun Valley, Idaho, where he lives. The results, as you can see in her photos, are quite funny.
You have possibly waited decades for a hiome video release of the campy, ridiculous wonderful 1960s Batman TV series starring Adam West, and now your wait is over, because Warner Bros. is finally releasing the show in a box set... as first reported by Conan O'Brien on Twitter. Wait, what?
Futurama may be coming to a close, but not before Batman TV stars Adam West and Burt Ward stick their heads in the series' jars. And, judging from the character sketches, it looks like they'll be channeling their most famous roles.
It's a good time to be Adam West. The '60s Batman TV show is returning — kind of — in a new DC comic titled Batman '66, a digital-first comic based entirely on the classic, campy series. We've already mentioned how the cult-classic show will get an awesome and long-awaited action figure series, but hold onto your…
Redditor slapshotten11 lives near TV Batman Adam West, and decided to look him up in the Ketchum, Idaho, phone book. But it's not that easy to track down the Batman. It's nice to know that even in this digital age, paper phone books can still provide us with so much amusement.
Wondering just how bad the current financial situation is? Apparently so bad that it'll take superhuman resources to fix it. And, more worryingly, the people who're saying that are the self-styled financial experts. Translation: We're all screwed.
With Transformers starlet Megan Fox calling her "lame" and the most successful writer in the American comic industry joking that she's "a walking STD farm," it's time to ask: Why doesn't Wonder Woman get the respect she deserves?
