  6. The Adam West Batman TV Series Actually Saved the Batman Comics, So Here’s Some More Trivia About It

    Holy trivia, Batman!

    Everyone has nostalgia for the campy 1966 Batman TV show, but without it, we might be living in a Batman-less world. It revitalized slumping sales of Batman comics at the time, despite readers' complaints that it also brought too much campiness to the book. That's just one of the little known facts we learned about the show today.

  8. Speaking of ’60s Batman and Futurama, Here’s ’60s Batman in Futurama

    What, you aren't always talking about Batman and Futurama on a constant loop?

    Futurama is ending soon -- again. But before that, it looks like Matt Groening and crew are looking to get the most out of their final season, and that includes getting Batman stars Adam West and Burt Ward to do a special guest appearance on the show. They recently released images of the character models on the Comedy Central website, and they look sufficiently Batman-y to make me very happy about the state of the world. Admit it, you really have been hoping those two would get back together for another Return to the Batcave. I refuse to hear otherwise.

  9. Holy Geeky Documentary Batman! PBS’ Pioneers of Television Takes on Superheroes. [VIDEO]

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Watch Superheroes on PBS. See more from Pioneers of Television.

    I'm a low-level documentary-a-holic (shut up, it's a thing), and when the documentaries are geeky it's even better. And yeah, this episode of PBS's Pioneers of Television, about the superhero shows of the '60s, '70s, and '80s, is narrated by Ryan Seacrest. But I can let that slide if I'm watching Lynda Carter, Julie NewmarAdam West, Burt Ward, Lou Ferrigno and more talk about the history of superheroes on TV for an hour.

  10. Honey Boo Boo Has a Comic Book, and Now There’s Variant Covers

    We don't know how we missed the fact that in November comics publisher Blue Water Productions printed a comic book about reality television child Alana Thompson as in Honey Boo Boo -- we're just lucky we guess -- but today they also released "collectible" variant covers. We put "collectible" in quotes not as a commentary on the perceived value of such an item, but because the covers are only being offered digitally, so we're not sure how one would really go about collecting them, or why one would want to.

  11. Michael Keaton Talks Batman, Beetlejuice, and the New Robocop on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast

    WTF with Marc Maron is one of the most popular, and best, podcasts on the Internet. It's on the radar of most comedy geeks, but Maron interviews people from a few different worlds, including the world of Hollywood. The latest episode features an interview with Michael Keaton, who many forget started as a comic, and the two talked about Batman, Beetlejuice, and Keaton's role in the upcoming Robocop reboot.

  13. It’s Like Cosplay For Your Eyes: Elaborate Eye Make-Up For Geeks

    My Precious!

    We've featured the work of phantasmagorically talented makeup artist Jangsara here before. We can't help it, every time we come across more of her work we spend a good fifteen minutes just pawing at our computer screens, contemplating whether it makes any sense at all to go on a MAC shopping spree to try these looks on our own eyes, even with our less-than-steady hands. Her work is always good for filling our daily quotient of Pretty Things to Look At, and these recent efforts are no different. Click through to witness some of her geek-inspired eye-art, and make your peepers a little bit jealous.

  14. Could Batman Make His TV Comeback Courtesy Of The CW’s Arrow?

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Most of us remember the impression Batman left the last time he starred in a live-action television show. Adam West's portrayal will never be forgotten but in the wave of Christopher Nolan's more realistic (and highly successful) take on the character in film, could Batman ever be brought back to the small screen? According to the CW's Arrow writer Marc Guggenheim, the answer is yes.

  15. Val Kilmer Says Batman Got “Too Cute”

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    We all have different preferences. Especially when it comes to Batman. You've got your Adam West lovers, Tim Burton fans, Joel Schumacher mostly haters, and Christopher Nolan devotees. And of course there's many who like a mix of those as well but Val Kilmer, who donned the Batman costume in Batman Forever, knows exactly where things went wrong - his film.

  18. Julie Newmarr Purrrrrfers the Batman Series She Did With Adam West, Thankyouverymuch

    Just Go With It

    Julie Newmarr thinks that Batman these days is just too scowly and dark. The first woman to play Catwoman on TV (Lee Meriwether played her in the 1966 movie), Newmarr longs for the days when the Bat was a light-hearted, silly crimefighter played by Adam West who had fights festooned with comic book-style violence bubbles. And while she thinks Anne Hathaway will do a fine job in the role, she had a few choice words about some other latter-day Catwoman portrayers.

  19. Don’t Blink! Witness William Shatner and Adam West — Acting Together! [Video]

    Together At Last

    Back in 1964, before they were TV's Batman and Captain James Tiberius Kirk, Adam West and William Shatner shared camera time in a failed pilot for ABC called Alexander the Great. It was meant to be a "buddy comedy" set during the Battle of Issus with Shatner in the role of Alexander (the Great) and West as his "compatriot" Cleander. So as not to let one diva outshine the other, the plan was to let each star play the lead in alternating episodes. West says that it was "one of the worst scripts I have ever read and it was one of the worst things I’ve ever done," and Shatner was "deeply, deeply, horrendously disappointed when this series didn’t sell." Let us now mourn what could have been. (Hero Complex via Comics Beat)

  20. Adam West Reminds us Why Comic Con

    and let it be known

    I know from experience that this week’s Comic-Con is bound to attract a force of fans like no other. They are the enthusiasts, the critics, the predictors, and the deciders of what we will dine on in the feast of amusement that is our pop culture. That’s why the major studios, the producers and the stars turn up. We are all there seeking endorsement from those hardcore fans whose good or bad wishes will cause the next pop culture tsunami. These are the fans who let you know what your box office chances might be. These are the fans who energize our work and determine the duration of our careers. -- Adam West This year's San Diego Comic Con is upon us, where all the hallowed bastions of geek entertainment line up and do their best to impress a broad swathe of the public, some more cynical than others. And while many of the usual takers and names are conspicuously absent, possibly giving us one of the most comics focused Comic Cons in years, fans are still there, with more than a thousand already lined up to storm the hall already. So remember: whatever this year's Comic Con may bring, it's ultimately up to we the fans to make it an event. (via Movieline.)
