ICYMI: Adam West and Burt Ward Announced They’re Doing a Batman ’66 Animated Movie


This broke on social media over the weekend, but is worthy of a mention here on the site too – at the Mad Monster Party convention in Charlotte, NC this past Saturday, the classic dynamic duo actors announced that they were on board for at least one, and maybe two, animated Batman and Robin features. This seems to me the best possible news to come out of DC regaining the rights to merchandise the property, though of course most of the key villain actors are dead.

I may have mentioned this before, but rather than simply setting the proposed movie in 1968 or so, I’d love to see versions of The Dark Knight Returns and Batman Beyond set in that universe. “I’m the Gosh-Darn Batman!” is a T-shirt ready slogan if I ever heard one.

See footage of the actual announcement below.
