With the sting of Adam West's recent passing still weighing heavy on our hearts and minds, it's joyous news that the man who resurrected the Dark Knight for a nation will breathe life into the cape and cowl once more, in the upcoming Batman vs. Two-Face animated feature.
Last fall, we announced that William Shatner would portray the twisted district attorney Harvey Dent in the sequel to 2016's Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. Certainly no one expected then that eight months later the legendary Adam West would no longer be with us, calling into question his involvement with Batman vs. Two-Face. But never fear, West-lovers, as Warner Bros. has just confirmed that the charismatic gentleman from Walla Walla, Washington, did indeed complete his vocal work on the cartoon flick set inside the Batman '66 universe.
Two-Face wasn't a part of the classic Batman TV series, but a never-used episode treatment by iconic sci-fi author Harlan Ellison called The Two-Way Crimes of Two-Face was adapted into the special 2014 comic book edition Batman '66: The Lost Episode, penned by Len Wein.
Word that Adam West will rise again brings a geeky smile to my face, and he'll rejoin the voices of Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman) in this next animated movie. No details as to the full title of the sequel, exact synopsis or release date yet, but look for news to drop closer to San Diego Comic-Con next month.
Are you thrilled that the resonating pipes of Adam West will live on one more time in Batman vs. Two-Face?
