Batman Star Adam West Has Passed Away At Age 88

It's with great sorrow that I report fan-favorite Batman star Adam West has passed away. He was 88 years old and he died after a short battle with leukemia. His family offered the following statement:

“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero."

A spokesperson for the actor added:

“A true American icon and beloved father and husband, he will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and millions of fans around the world."

I grew up watching reruns of the original 1960's Batman series and I've always enjoyed seeing him pop up in other films and TV shows over the years. It's so sad to hear that he's passed on, but he's left behind a legacy of greatness.

West's career as an actor all began in the 1950's as a

Beyond He-Man and She-Ra: celebrating the Filmation legacy

Andrew Younger Sep 2, 2016

Tarzan, Space Sentinels, The New Adventures Of Batman, Flash Gordon, Bravestarr and more, as we salute Filmation...

For a child of the 1970s and 80s, nothing readied you for a half hour of quality entertainment quite like the Filmation logo. Immortalised by their phenomenal success with He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe, and its spin off She-Ra: Princess Of Power, Filmation produced some of the most fondly remembered animated series to grace the small screen.

Over a period of 26 years - in tandem with classic Doctor Who funnily enough - the company's writers, artists and producers delivered a staggering amount of programming. While naysayers point to Filmation's penchant for reusing a stockpile of rotoscoped body movements, or the heavy handedness of its moralising and educational content - children on the other hand, thrilled to an irresistible mixture of action, adventure and superhuman heroes.

Now something of a lost art form,

‘Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders’ Trailer: Adam West and Burt Ward Lend Their Voices to the Dynamic Duo
Back in 1966 Adam West became one of the first Batman’s to grace our screens, with Burt Ward alongside as his trusty sidekick, Robin. Now the Gotham City duo have returned to reprise their superhero roles, but this time without putting on the tights.

The first trailer for the animated DC film, “Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders,” has just been released and features the voices of West and Ward as the dynamic duo going up against their fiendish foes.

Fanboy Complaints: The Dark Knight Rises

Hey ComicBookMovie community! Today I respond to some of the complaints throw around about the critically acclaimed blockbuster: The Dark Knight Rises. For some reason this is the most complained about movie in the entire trilogy, and probably the most complained about in the last decade. Anyway, I warn you guys again of the incoming spoilers. In the words of Bane: "Let the games begin!". That isn't Bane: Why isn't he Bane? He doesn't wear a luchador mask? Last time I checked there have been many different versions of Bane and what his mask looks like. I remember he wore like this a dominatrix type mask with a spiked collar in The New Adventures of Batman. Oh, he doesn't use venom like Bane does? Well if I remember correctly Bane quit using venom before the New 52 reboot since he started to see it as a weakness. Oh his origin is different?

The Actors Who Have Played Batman

James Aquilone Rob Leane May 31, 2019

We take a look back at the 8 crusading actors who’ve played Batman in TV and the movies, as well as his animated avatars!

Holy revolving door, Batman! The Caped Crusader has been portrayed by more actors than any other superhero in movie history – eight to be exact. Most have lasted for just one film. But after The Dark Knight Rises, Christian Bale has become the first man to have played Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego more than twice on the silver screen. He didn’t have much competition – Michael Keaton was the only other actor to reprise the role at the time.

Ben Affleck tied Bale for appearances as Batman with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, his Suicide Squad cameo, and 2017's Justice League. That run will not extend to a fourth film, though, as Affleck has exited the role. Instead, Robert Pattinson is your new Bruce Wayne.

The 9 actors who’ve played Batman

James Aquilone Rob Leane May 7, 2017

We look at the nine actors who’ve graced Batman's cowl on the big screen, including Mr Ben Affleck

Holy revolving door, Batman! The Caped Crusader has been portrayed by more actors than any other superhero in movie history – nine to be exact. Most have lasted for just one film, but with the release of The Dark Knight Rises, Christian Bale became the first man to have played Bruce Wayne and his alter-ego more than twice on the silver screen.

He didn’t have much competition – Michael Keaton was the only prior actor to reprise the role. Will Arnett's voice joined the club with Lego Batman Movie earlier this year, though. Ben Affleck could well throw all these records out, of course, given the sprawling DC Extended Universe plans now afoot and his vital involvement in them.

Here's the nine actor who've played Gotham's Dark Knight.

Robin actor Burt Ward from Batman TV series gets his own comic

Burt Ward, who played Batman's sidekick Robin in the 60s TV series and its spin-off movie, is returning to the comics world that spawned his iconic Boy Wonder.

Ward, now aged 66, will appear in a new miniseries from Bluewater Productions that "showcases his superhero legacy and his post-acting passion for pet rescue."

The project is a spin-off from his former co-star's own comic book, The Mis-Adventures of Adam West.

Burt Ward, Boy Wonder will appear first as a free issue during Free Comic Book Day this May and then as a full four-issue mini-series in summer. It's described as "a campy take on Ward's fictional post-Batman life."

The premise follows the actor as he returns to superhero status, this time with his own canine sidekicks as they travel though time fighting villains.

Ward said: "I am excited about working with Bluewater Productions to create a comic book based

Tim Burton’s Batman vs Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight

With the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, the third in a trilogy of highly successful Batman movies by Christopher Nolan, and the recent release of the hotly anticipated video game Arkham City, its really never been a better time to be a Batman fan. The past few years have seen a gigantic leap in popularity for DC Comic’s surly, brooding poster boy, a character that has always held a large amount of public affection in its near 80 year history.

With this in mind, WhatCulture has decided to do an article comparing the two most beloved Batman movies: Tim Burton’s Batman from 1989, the iconic and most endearing interpretation of Batman, and The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan’s second take on the World’s Greatest Detective from 2008, the highest grossing and critically revered Batman film to date. As soon as I heard of this, I practically pleaded for the opportunity to write it.

Hamill had hinted a while back that he may step down from voicing the Joker after his stint on Batman: Arkham City, but the above Twitter announcement appears to have confirmed his decision.

Batman's Aerial Evolution: From Hokey Copter To Nolan's Batwing

Christian Bale's incarnation of Batman had hardly been confined to the gritty streets of Gotham City in "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight." His Caped Crusader perched high atop skyscrapers, spun aerial pirouettes through the night sky with a pair of retractable wings, and plucked a corrupt businessman into the air thanks to some nifty black-ops technology and a white cargo plane.

But never before has Bale's hero had his very own aircraft, a super-slick Batwing perhaps to park in the Batcave next to his Batpod, which resides within his Batmobile. That's about to change, as photos from the Pittsburgh set of "The Dark Knight Rises" make clear. Director Christopher Nolan has given the craft an entirely new spin, updating what was once an undeniably hokey comic-book creation into the latest, greatest way for Batman to shoot through the air and bust bad-guy butt. Here's a look at the aircraft's evolution.

Geek Infographic: The Evolution of The Batmobile

So, you’re a geek and you might think you know every variation on the Batmobile. You know George Barris’ iconic 1955 Lincoln Futura from the Adam West TV series of the late 60s, and you undoubtedly remember Michael Keaton‘s ride in director Tim Burton‘s late 80s incarnation of the big, black bat, and of course the infamous Tumbler from director Christopher Nolan‘s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight but, the Caped Crusader has had many, many other sets of wheels.

Luckily, the infographic below gives us a look at just about every single one of them, check it out!

My personal faves are The Tumbler, his ride from Batman The Animated Series, and the Batmobile created by Bruce Timm for 1998′s The New Adventures of Batman & Robin. How about you? Drop your favorites in the comments below!
