Adam West and Burt Ward To Star In New Animated ‘Batman’ Film

I’m a big fan of the 1960s Batman TV series. I literally spent hours upon hours of my childhood watching reruns of the classic series. Adam West and Burt Ward were my introduction to Batman and Robin (as Keaton had yet to put on the cowl).

With the Bluray release of the series selling well (and the success of the Batman 66 digital comic), there’s been a lot of buzz around the show lately, and it looks like it’s not stopping.

At a recent appearance, Burt Ward and Adam West revealed that they will star in an animated feature length film to be released on the 50th anniversary of the 1960s series in 2016. Here’s the (short) clip:


We don’t know much else about the film (or the possibility of sequels if it sells well), but my inner-six year old is very, very excited.

Trae Dorn has been staffing conventions for over twenty years, and is a co-founder of Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con. Trae also wrote and drew the now completed webcomic UnCONventional, and produces the podcasts BS-Free Witchcraft, On This Day With Trae, Stormwood & Associates, and The Nerd & Tie Podcast. This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”

    To clarify, Batman ’66 is actually a print comic, it’s not just digital.

      Well, it’s a weekly “digital first” comic — where they’re released digitally and then collected into print. My comics are still webcomics even if I put out dead tree versions later.
