Now You Can Watch Adam West’s Guest Performance from an Unaired Episode of Powerless
Adam West, famous for his role as the Caped Crusader in the campy and comic ’60s Batman show, passed away last week at the age of 88. Fans around the world mourned his passing, and the city of Los Angeles lit up City Hall with the Bat Signal in his honor. Now, NBC and DC Entertainment have released a previously unaired episode of the sitcom Powerless, in which West had a guest role/cameo, so that fans can enjoy one of his last performances.
In the episode, titled “Win, Luthor, Draw,” West plays a member of the Wayne Enterprises board named Chairman West. His cameo is short, but it includes jokes about a “gratuitous cameo,” some campy narration, and West’s warm, humorous grin.
The episode is only about 25 minutes long, but if you’d like to skip to West’s cameo scenes specifically, he appears at four points: at approximately 4:24-4:52, approximately 5:15-6:00, approximately 10:20-11:20, and approximately 21:15 to the end.
“Win, Luthor, Draw” was intended to be the second-to-last episode of Powerless‘s first season. However, NBC pulled the final three episodes in late April, before announcing the series’ cancellation in May.
While this is one of West’s final performances, it isn’t quite the last. Fans of West can also look forward to remembering and celebrating his voice work in the upcoming animated film, Batman ’66 vs. Two-Face.
