The footage also reveals a new, but appropriately retro, origin for the Caped Crusader’s coin-flipping rogue, as Gotham’s district attorney falls victim to a malfunction of Dr. Hugo Strange’s ethically dubious “Evil Extractor.” (And is that Harleen Quinzel, aka Harley Quinn, assisting the not-so-good doctor?) Adam West’s beloved Bright Knight never encountered Two-Face on the 1966 Batman television series, allowing for free rein in depicting the backstory of the classic villain.
The direct-to-video animated feature marks West’s final performance as Batman. The actor, who passed away June 9 at age 88, is of course best known for his portrayal of the Caped Crusader on the live-action 1966 series. However, he also voiced the character on such animated series as New Adventures of Batman, Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show and The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians.
Batman vs. Two-Face stars the voices of Adam West as Batman, Burt Ward as Robin, Julie Newmar as Catwoman, William Shatner as Two-Face, Steven Weber as Alfred, Jim Ward as Commissioner Gordon, Thomas Lennon as Chief O’Hara and Lynne Marie Stewart as Aunt Harriet. It arrives Oct. 17 on Blu-ray and DVD.
