The Bat has fallen. And the world mourns.
Adam West, best known for his role as Batman in the camp-tastic 60’s television series, passed away last night after a brief battle with leukemia. West’s career spanned 6 decades and included extensive live-action and voice-over work.
Though he was best known as Batman, West leaves a legendary mark on both film and television as well as in the hearts of millions of fans. Good night, good knight. Rest well, Batman.
