Watch The Complete Batman ’66 Press Conference With Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar [Video]

hqdefault

Arguably the most anticipated home video release, like, maybe ever, Batman '66 has finally been remastered and slated for release this November. The television show is both a classic interpretation of the Dark Knight but also an influential and beloved pop culture phenomenon in its own right, but arcane rights issues kept the complete series from the home video market for decades.

As announced earlier this week, Batman: The Complete Television Series will be available November 11 on Blu-ray, DVD, digital, and, of course, a super expensive collector’s edition that comes with all sorts of groovy stuff, including a selection of photos from star Adam West’s personal archives (when you’re as mature and sophisticated as West, you get to have “personal archives”).

In observance of the news, series stars Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar sat for a press conference at Comic-Con International in San Diego over the weekend, and ComicsAlliance's Chris Sims was there to document the event for your immense pleasure.

From the It's About Darn Time Department: In the midst of a renewed push that includes licensed toys and comics, Warner Brothers has confirmed that Batman, the 1966 television show starring Adam West and Burt Ward, will be released on home video some time this year. To say that this is pretty welcome news around here at ComicsAlliance is understating things quite a bit, since some of us have been waiting decades for a complete series set of Batman.

It's not entirely surprising news, though. With the licensing we've seen from the show over the past year, it felt like it was only a matter of time before everything was sorted out between Fox (the producers of the TV show) and WB (who own DC Comics and, therefore, Batman) to get the actual show back in the hands of fans. What is pretty surprising, however, is that the news was broken by Conan O'Brien on Twitter. Really.

If you asked a bunch of comic fans what the greatest Joker story of all time was, I imagine you'd get a variety of answers. Some would probably point to Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's The Killing Joke, which raised the bar for the Joker's criminal madness. Others might
