NEWS - Adam West Receives One Last Go as Batman
Reported by NCZ on Thu Jun 15 2017

Actor Adam West, famous for his portrayal of Batman in the legendarily-campy 1960s TV show, has one final animated Batman movie in the pipeline, to be released posthumously.

Late last year, West reprised his iconic role along with co-star Burt Ward in Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. Batman VS Two-Face is a sequel to that film, planned for release digitally and on home video later this year. Warner Bros. and IGN have confirmed that West managed to record his lines for the sequel before his death last week.

The film will pit West against another well-known 60s TV actor - William Shatner, providing the voice of Two-Face. It is likely to have been one of the final performances in West's 60-year-long career.

In the last decades of his career, West made a significant resurgence in the public eye by voicing a variety of characters in animation, often paying homage to his Batman role through characters loosely based on exaggerated versions of himself. He also voiced other characters within the Batman universe as a further nod to his legacy, such as the DCAU's Gray Ghost, and The Batman's Mayor of Gotham City.
