Adam West Returning As Batman In Animated Film

While Jared Leto gets panned for his film adaptation of The Joker, the Bat Signal is being lit for the original Caped Crusader. That’s right, folks, Adam West is coming back.

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders will mark Adam West’s triumphant return as Batman alongside Burt Ward as Robin and Julie Newmar as Catwoman. The Joker, Riddler and Penguin will feature in the animated film, which is being produced by Warner Bros., Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment. The Digital HD version will be released on October 11, 2016, and the Blu-Ray edition will follow on November 1, 2016.

As you can see in the above trailer, Batman and Robin break the fourth wall as they escape a tray of food headed for a fiery oven. Apparently, they’ll be fighting some of the Rouges Gallery on Earth and in space, because why not?

We don’t get enough of the amazing voice of Adam West as it is, so this will be a great reminder to the world that he’s still going strong. The film won’t be dark and serious like the Batman we’re used to, so get ready for some campy good times with the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder.
