There Could Be More Batman 1966 Animated Movies
Robin actor Burt Ward says that the Dynamic Duo could continue despite Adam West’s passing.
By Scott Collura
It has been assumed that Batman vs. Two-Face, the new animated film from Warner Bros. and DC, would be the last adventure for the classic 1966 TV version of the Dynamic Duo starring the late Adam West and Burt Ward. Since West is sadly no longer with us, this was surely his swan song. Or so we all thought.
But today at New York Comic Con I spoke to Ward, who of course plays Robin, and he strongly implied that if Batman vs. Two-Face is successful, there could be more animated films based on the 1966 show. I asked him what it was like knowing this movie was the last teaming of his Dynamic Duo and his response was, “I don’t know about that.”
“I don’t know much,” he hinted. “But I do enough that if this movie does well, it won’t be the last.”
So that’s mysterious and cryptic and possibly controversial (would they recast West? Did he record dialogue before his death that could be used?), but we’ll have to wait to see what it all means. There’s a Batman vs. Two-Face panel happening at NYCC today, so maybe news will break regarding this development during that. If so, we’ll update this story! Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel…

I think this could work....as long as Burt is still willing to be Robin who ever played Adam West’s part it could continue as a living memorial to Adam West. Would love to see and hear Burt continue as the classic and best Robin the Boy Wonder!!!
Darryl W. Riley Really. Id like to see the stories continue.
Thomas Joesph Pryor yes
Zachary Nevel I would love to see Burt voice a Nightwing feature
Would be a little different without ADAM !! But the right voice and script could do it !!!
welll, they brought Peter Cushing back in Star Wars Rogue 1 right? The animation was awesome..could the same technology here not be applied???
