The Dark Knight has been portrayed by multiple actors over the decades. Michael Keaton played him for Tim Burton, Christian Bale played him for Christopher Nolan, and Kevin Conroy brought him to life in cartoon form in Batman: The Animated Series. But for older generations, Batman will always been Adam West, and now he’s reprising the role in a new animated movie.
We first heard about the animated Batman 1966 movie in the spring of 2015 with a plan to bring back the classic versions of Batman and Robin this year, just in time for the TV show’s 50th anniversary. Adam West and Burt Ward are back as Batman and Robin, and the first teaser trailer for the straight-to-DVD animated feature has just arrived online.

Three things are certain in life. Death, taxes, and Internet trailer parodies. The instant a big film trailer hits the web, you know hundreds of people start working on different parodies, memes, and whatever else they can come up with. In the past week, two of the year’s biggest trailers came online: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course, so too came the parodies.
For Batman v Superman, Screen Junkies did an Honest Trailer version of the trailer, and someone else re-edited the footage with shots of Christopher Reeve and Adam West to give it a retro feel. Check out the Batman v Superman trailer parodies below. Read More »

There’s a funny scene in Neighbors where two drunk dudes argue about which actor is the definitive Batman. For 30something Seth Rogen, it’s Michael Keaton of Batman and Batman Returns. For college kid Zac Efron, it’s Christian Bale from the Christopher Nolan films. And in the future, for kids even younger than that, it could very well become Ben Affleck going up against Henry Cavill in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
But for a sizable portion of the population, Batman always has been and always will be Adam West of the ’60s TV series. Though it’s been decades since the show ended, he remains an icon among superhero fans. The new documentary Starring Adam West is all about his career, from its rapid rise to its equally swift decline, and his lasting legacy. Watch the Starring Adam West trailer after the jump.
