The best ever Batman, Adam West, has died after a short illness. He was the iconic Batman and no follow up has ever bettered him in the role.

His career waned after the series ended (1966-68) and he mainly earned a living doing voice overs. His co-star Burt ward (Robin) said he was the wildest man off-screen he ever knew.

Sad. I watched reruns growing up. For me he is always the original Batman. RIP

Check out Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. Animated movie based off the TV show, Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar all voice their respective characters from the TV show. It's not bad if your looking for some nostalgia. RIP

I recall reading, at the time of the first of the revived Batman movies (the one with the soundtrack by Prince), that West had also been reduced to making personal appearances at functions and parties dressed in his old Batman outfit, but the marketing people for the new version got an injunction preventing him from using the Batman image.

I thought it was really mean at the time - still do, come to that.

Never knew that. If true, Warner Bros are a bunch of coonts.
