Batman ’66 Animated Movie is in Development for Fiftieth Anniversary
The 1966 Batman stars Adam West and Burt Ward confirmed this weekend at the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina that they are involved in an animated Batman project.
Ward told all fans in the crowd to get ready for a 90-minute animated feature coming their way as a tribute to the fiftieth anniversary.
“You can look forward to a new, animated Batman full-length 90-minute feature coming out on the fiftieth anniversary.”
Adam West and Burt Ward will be giving their voices in the upcoming animated feature as Batman and Robin, respectively. Ward further mentioned that there is a possibility of another movie in the future but only one of the projects is in development and confirmed.
“One of possibly two, but for sure one, that Adam and I are going to be doing the voices for.”
The show was based on the characters taken from DC Comics, Batman and his sidekick Robin. The show ran for three seasons from 1966 until 1968.
Besides Ward and West, Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether and Yvonne Craig are still alive and maybe the production will decide to use their voices in the animated version. However, the production might involve new talent to voice legendary characters like Joker, Riddler and Penguin.
Twenty-Sixteen will be a Batman-packed year although Ward and West have not given details about its release but it is expected to premiere around the time Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice airs.
Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice premieres on 25 March 2016.
