Speaking to a room full of reporters including CBR at New York Comic Con, Batman vs. Two-Face star Burt Ward gave an indication that he’s not done playing Robin, despite the tragic death of his Batman ’66 co-star Adam West.
Asked if he could continue playing Robin after the death of West, Ward told reporters, “Yes. The answer is yes. There’s a lot of stuff coming.”
While Ward is optimistic there will be more of his animated take on Robin, the filmmakers behind Batman vs. Two-Face weren’t so sure. “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.”
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.
