1960s TV Batman Returns as Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar Voice New Animated Film

The great thing about animation is that it isn't dependent on an actor's physicality. As long as the performer has a distinct vocal performance, literally anything can happen — including having Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar get back into their skin-tight costumes! There's a new DC animated film on the horizon, and it's all about 1960s TV Batman.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
