Adam West And Burt Ward Drop Some Details On The BATMAN TV Series DVD Release
Fans of the ’66 Batman TV series were thrilled to learn that the entire series would be released on DVD sometime this year. There had been numerous rights issues hindering a home video release for well over a decade, but with the release of new toys and other merchandise over the past year, things have finally been cleared up. While the original announcement only mentioned that the release would be sometime this year, stars Adam West and Burt Ward seem to have dropped some details about the DVD and when exactly we can bring it home.
The dynamic duo appeared at Wizard World St. Louis this weekend and the subject of the new Batman ’66 merchandise was brought up. Burt Ward dropped the juiciest details, saying “Finally, after an innumerable number of years, our series is going to be coming out, all 120 episodes. I understand it’s right at the end of November this year in time for Christmas. I know this last week, both Adam and I at separate times, went in and we filmed some additional bonus material for Warner Bros. that’s going to be included with the programs. And I also understand that they’ve really done a tremendous job digitally remastering our series so that it’s really going to be just absolutely gorgeous on DVD. So I think you can look forward to a very, very high class product.“
Adam West then jumped in and seemed to confirm that the additional material they filmed is either commentary for some episodes or just special featurettes for the series. He told fans, “Warner Bros. had a very fine director/producer they hired. And he he asked us the most profound questions. And Burt agrees that he asked us things that people have never asked before. And it was tough to answer, but I think we were both very honest and straightforward and told him what he wanted to know.“
