About a week ago, the first promotional teaser arrived for an animated feature that would bring back Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin. The two actors played the live-action television iterations of the Caped Crusaders in a TV series that started back in 1996, and now we get to see (or rather hear) the duo back in action with the full trailer for Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.
