Animated Batman ’66 Film Coming Next Year with Adam West and Burt Ward

In case Ben Affleck’s turn as the dark knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wasn’t enough for your anticipation levels, an animated film based on the 1966 Batman TV series will be debuting as well. Consequences of Sound (via /Film) brings word on the announcement which took place at the Batman panel at the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina this weekend.

“You can look forward to a new animated Batman, full length 90-minute feature, coming out on the 50th anniversary. One of possibly two, but for sure one, that Adam and I are doing the voices for,” Burt Ward revealed.

Check back here for further details on the project as they’re announced.

Starring Adam West as the titular hero, “Batman” ran for 120 episodes from 1966 to 1968 and also featured Yvonne Craig as Batgirl, Burgess Meredith as the Penguin, and Cesar Romero as the Joker. You can buy the complete series on Blu-ray or DVD by clicking here.
