For the better part of this year (2016), Adam West and Burt Ward had been telling fans of the 1960s hit TV series Batman about an upcoming project they have been working on. Rumors abounded as to what it could be, and people guessed anything from cameo appearances to a new television series.
Last week the news hit that the original Batman and Robin (Dynamic Duo) would team up once more for an animated film, also involving Julie Newmar as Catwoman. We now have the official trailer to give us insight into the exciting new project.
The trailer starts off with a regrouping of the Caped Crusader’s most famous villains: the Riddler, the Joker, Penguin and Catwoman. Batman and Robin team up to stop them, chasing them around in the Batmobile before stumbling into trouble.
Earlier this year, West promised the film would be the Batman and Robin we remember from the 1960s TV series.
Based on the trailer, he wasn’t lying. The film looks like it has the same camp as the show, complete with punchy title cards and comically unnecessary labels.
Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader will be available on Digital HD format October 11 and Blu-Ray Combo Pack November 1 2016.
In the Series Finale, an unusual turn of events have forced Robin and Gisborne together to save their half brother and take down the evil Prince John (Toby Stephens). Tune in to find out if their alliance lasts or if Prince John takes down Robin Hood once and for all.
If you have missed the 3rd season of Robin Hood fear not as it will be released on DVD on January 12, 2010. The five-disc set boasts over an hour of bonus material including behind-the-scenes features, character profiles, video diaries and more.

The brainchild of the series is non-other than Smallville’s executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson and Supernatural‘s executive producer McG is also behind the project. The CW has put in a pilot commitment for the show, viewed as a potential replacement for Smallville, which may be hanging up its super-flying cape after eight seasons great seasons. If Smallville continues, The Graysons will work as a companion series.
