Speaking to a room full of reporters including CBR at New York Comic Con, the filmmakers behind the Batman vs. Two-Face animated film expressed doubt that the Batman ’66 revival series would continue without West, however, they did discuss the possibility of an animated take on the ’77 Wonder Woman series starring Lynda Carter.
“It’s not a decision that I make,” director Rick Morales said, noting that the decision to move forward with more Batman ’66 revivals comes from higher up. “I feel like it’s doubtful just because, y’know, Adam West. But, I love this era, I love this take on Batman, so if they wanted to do more I would be up for it.”
“I don’t know, probably not,” co-writer Michael Jelenic said, with regard to doing more Batman ’66 movies. “I don’t know how you get someone else to step into Adam West’s shoes,” he added, “this is sort of like the Swan Song for the series…it’s a great Swan Song for Adam West too, as opposed to playing Batman’s dad or a character influenced by Batman.”
However, the filmmakers didn’t rule out doing a take on Lynda Carter’s legendary portrayal as Wonder Woman on the ’77 series. “We were talking about doing a [tag] on this movie where he’s teaming up with Lynda Carter at the very end,” Jelenic revealed, “and we see Adam West in ’77 and he’s aged up a little, and the mansion’s all decorated in the ’77 style…that could be a possibility, but I don’t think it would be a Batman thing.”
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 is currently available to purchase on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD.
