Back in March 2015, original Batman TV series stars Adam West and Burt Ward announced at the Mad Monster Party convention in Charlotte, North Carolina that they are both returning to voice Batman and Robin in a new animated movie. Although they didn't reveal the title or too many plot details at the convention, they did reveal that the movie would be released on Blu-ray and DVD at some point in 2016. Today we have our first look at this movie, entitled Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, which reveals that another Batman TV series star has come back, Julie Newmar as the Catwoman. Entertainment Weekly debuted this first trailer, which features both Batman and Robin getting out of a jam. The Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder reveal they will square off against iconic villains such as the Joker, Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman, with their battles taking place both on Earth, and in space. Unfortunately, we don't have word on who's voicing Joker, Riddler and Penguin yet, but hopefully … [Read more...] about Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders Trailer Reunites Adam West & Burt Ward
The spotlight shines on far more than the core trio of iconic stars of Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. With the likes of primetime television veterans Steven Weber and Thomas Lennon leading the way, the full-length animated feature film boasts a supporting cast of notable voices from across all entertainment mediums and some of the best-loved animated properties. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has also released five new photos offering our first look at new characters in the animated movie. Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman) own top billing, but Weber (Wings, iZombie, NCIS: New Orleans) and Lennon (The Odd Couple, Reno 911!) - as trustworthy butler Alfred Pennyworth and Chief O'Hara, respectively - headline an impressive array of actors who were excited to give voice to a role in a Batman film. In addition to Weber and Lennon, the cast includes Jeff Bergman as the Joker and the revered Announcer. Bergman is well known as a voice of Bugs Bunny for … [Read more...] about Full Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders Voice Cast Announced
Last week, we showed you the first trailer for the new animated Batman adventure entiteld Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, which reunites the original Dynamic Duo, Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin. Today we have the first full trailer with all new footage, along with the Blu-ray artwork. Both West and Ward first teased this project during a convention appearance back in 2015, although very little was known about the movie at that time. IGN debuted the full trailer along with the Blu-ray cover artwork for this animated adventure. Adam West hinted at last year's convention that this movie could spawn a new franchise, which would make sense since it likely won't be connected to the studio's DC Universe Original Movies, which have its own continuity in place. The trailer reveals that this is a "DC Classic Original Movie," so it seems possible that this could launch a new line of animated films based on classic superhero properties. Warner Bros. Animation and DC … [Read more...] about Return of the Caped Crusaders Trailer Resurrects the 1960s Batman TV Show

Before Marvel and Sony Pictures finally decided to join forces for a new Spider-Man reboot, which has Tom Holland set to star as a much younger Spidey, the studio was still developing another sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with Andrew Garfield set to return as Peter Parker. The Marvel/Sony deal pleased a great deal of fans, since it allows for Spidey to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time, but some fans still wanted to see Andrew Garfield return as the beloved character. Andrew Garfield revealed in a recent interview with Uproxx that he wasn't asked to come back, although he wouldn't go into too many details. When asked if Marvel ever approached him about putting on the Spidey suit one more time, he had this to say. "No. To be honest [pauses], all the ins and outs of what happened is a more tender conversation that maybe I don't want to talk about in public in a press situation. But all I can say is that I'm stoked to go and watch a … [Read more...] about Was Andrew Garfield Asked to Return for Marvel’s Spider-Man?
