The comic-book community suffered a great loss this past week, with the announcement that Batman actor, Adam West, had passed away at the age of 88 after a battle with Leukaemia.
It was as the caped crusader in the television series that West was best known, so it is only fitting that one of the actors last roles will see him once again don the cape and cowl.
Last year saw the release of Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, an animated film set in the same continuity of the 1960’s Series with West, Burt Ward and Julie Newman reprising their roles of Batman, Robin and Catwoman respectively.
The film received plenty of acclaim from fans, which led Warner Bros. Animation to announce a sequel which would see the dynamic duo dealing with Two-Face, set to be played by William Shatner.
With the film not yet given a release date, fans were concerned about whether West had actually managed to complete the film before his death, but now the website 13thdimension.com has contacted Warner Bros. who revealed that the late actor had completed the recording sessions for the role.
This means that the film will be released as expected and will possibly the actors last role.
Hopefully, more information will be revealed at next months Comic Con in San Diego, in the meantime you can check out the trailer for Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders below.
