Adam West returned, with much fanfare, as the iconic Caped Crusader last November with Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. After his recent passing, it was unclear whether he’d actually return for the sequel, Batman vs. Two-Face. Lucky for us, West’s Batman will come to life one last time.
There are few things more glorious in superhero comics right now than the Batman ’66/Wonder Woman ’77 mash-up series. But its last few chapters, despite featuring the amazing Burt Ward Robin’s evolution from Boy Wonder to disco goddamn Nightwing, have also taken a fascinatingly dark turn.
Everything about this animated ode to the Batman ’66 TV series is the most fun thing I’ve seen in ages. There are quick costume changes, holy things, sound effects, puns, and A GIANT OVEN labelled “GIANT OVEN.” Really, what more could you want from this movie?
