With the popularity of the campy 1960s Batman TV show riding a wave of nostalgia, helped by DC Comics Batman '66 title, Adam West and Burt Ward return to the characters that made them household names in a retro, animated, movie.
Marking the show's 50th anniversary, Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders features authentic sound effects (Smok! Boff! Slam!) and the requisite awful puns, and sees our heroes having to travel into space to save their city from an unholy alliance of The Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman (voiced by Julie Newmar).
In the States, the 90-minure film will be available November 1, on Blu-ray and on Digital HD starting October 11. Here in the UK you can order it from Amazon on DVD or Blu-Ray for a November 7 release.
Prior to that, Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders gets its world premiere at New York Comic Con, on October 6, where the cast and creators will host a panel during the two-hour event on the Main Stage at the Javits Center.
