Adam West is putting on Batman’s cape and cowl one last time, and you can see it on the big screen in Brisbane.
The upcoming animated film, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, will feature the voices of Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar in their iconic roles as Batman, Robin and Catwoman.
This will be a very different Batman film to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy or Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with a much lighter tone.
The film will screen in theatres for one weekend only, before being released digitally and on DVD and Blu-Ray.
This will be the second animated Batman movie to hit theatres for a limited engagement this year, following Batman: The Killing Joke. That one was mauled by critics, and rightly so, but it did sell out theatres around the world.
We can’t guarantee that Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders will be better than The Killing Joke, but with the return of West, Ward and Newmar, we’re confident it’ll at least be a lot more fun.
