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.
In the clip, Batman and Robin must stop their greatest opponents which include Catwoman, the Joker, the Riddler and Penguin. The goofy, retro-looking sneak peek includes silly jokes and scenes and features the catchy and unforgettable Batman theme song.
“Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” also features Julie Newmar as the voice of Catwoman and Wally Wingert as Riddler.
Ward and West starred in the live-action TV series “Batman” from 1966 to 1968. The two also portrayed the Gotham City heroes in 1966’s “Batman: The Movie” and 1977’s “The New Adventures of Batman.”
The animated movie will be released on Digital HD on October 11 and Blu-ray on November 1.
