Adam West and Burt Ward Returning For Animated Batman Film

During yesterday's BATMAN panel at Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, N.C., guests Adam West and Burt Ward announced they'd recently recorded dialogue for an animated BATMAN film slated for release in 2016 — the 50th anniversary of the classic television series.

Actually, the actors speculated that the as-yet untitled film (presumably part of Warner Animation's line of direct-to-video DC Universe series) might be split into two movies They didn't share any additional details about the film(s), but its safe to say there's going to be extensive recasting of the show's principle actors. The legal dispute between 20th Century Fox (the creators of the original series) and Warner Bros (which own the BATMAN characters) dragged on for so long that almost everyone associated with the series died in the interim. While its easy to imagine Julie Newmar participating in the upcoming animated film, nobody's really clamoring for the return of John Astin to the role of "The Riddler." Will we see Mark Hamill take the place of Cesar Romero as "The Joker?" John DiMaggio? Wally Wingert?

It's not the first time Ward and West have returned to the roles of "Batman and Robin." Both have loaned their voices to the characters in everything from 1977's THE NEW ADVENTURES OF BATMAN AND ROBIN, to episodes of THE SIMPSONS. They also announced during yesterday's panel that they've recently recorded dialogue for an upcoming episode of ROBOT CHICKEN.

Awesome news, and a great idea!

If it's half as good as their last flick I'll be tickled pink, Return to the Batcave was absolutely brilliant. And ridiculously underrated. :adam:

I'm very excited to see what the film will turn out like; can't believe it's been 50 years since the show's debut. Count me in!

Would anyone else just love it if it was extremely gritty and dark but with Bat-puns all over the place?

I completely forgot this was happening and after watching the trailer, I don't think I'll ever need to watch any other Batman film ever. Great animation and the performances cracked me up!

I finally got to see it, is freaking good :adam:
Spoiler: show
Anyone else went straight to play Arkham Knight with the Adam and Burt skins after watching this?

-Jezzz i look ridiculous with thighs XD
-How far they go to keep their little secret (That was a %100 an inner joke for the alleged hinted homosexuality from the 60's)

Who else caught the 2 legendary Batman quotes

Great movie, it captured perfectly the humor of the show and blend it into modern times, with an almost flawless use of Batman-inside jokes/commentary, it also gave closure to some stuff and addressed issues with the 60's show, like how incompetent the police is xD


I give it a 60/66
