Iconic Batman Adam West dies in LA aged 88

Adam West, the actor who played the iconic 1960s Batman, has died at 88.
Entertainment News – Latest Celebrity & Showbiz News | Sky News

ENTERTAINMENT SPECIALS:

Adam West, ‘Batman’ Star, Dead At 88

Longtime actor Adam West died Friday night, June 9, at the age of 88. He famously played the title role in the 1960s television series “Batman.”

A rep confirmed to Variety that the actor died after being treated briefly for leukemia.

“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero,” said his family in a statement.

The West family also tweeted from his account:

West remained a working actor until his death, notably with recurring voice work for animated projects such as “Family Guy” and “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.”

On “Family Guy,” the actor voiced a character with his own name. “Adam West” seemed to be immortal no matter what medical catastrophe came his way. A memorable moment from the show involved a doctor telling West he had lymphoma ― “Probably from rolling around in that toxic waste.” The doctor goes on to ask, “What in God’s name were you trying to prove?”

West’s response, “I was trying to gain super powers.”

The actor also made cameos as himself on shows like “30 Rock” and “The Big Bang Theory.”

Over the past 50 years, he never fully retired his role as Batman, voicing the character as late as 2017 in the upcoming video “Batman vs. Two-Face.” Since the original show, West also appeared in various non-lead roles in the “Batman” series.

West’s “Batman” is now remembered as being comically over-the-top, as he was in relatively low-budget action sequences and often uttered cringe-inducing dialogue. Perhaps the most famous line from the series was when West yelled, “Quick! To the Batmobile!”

The actor embraced the humor of his take on the Dark Knight throughout the rest of his life. In 2006, West appeared on the game show “I’ve Got A Secret” and revealed that he even got a “tattoo” of the Batman logo on one of his teeth.

West graduated from Whitman College as a literature major. After being drafted into the United States Army, he got a gig as the announcer for an internal television service for the military called the American Forces Network. It wasn’t until 1959 ― when West moved his then wife and two children to Hollywood, California ― that he took the stage name Adam West, adapted from his given name, William West Anderson.

After moving to Hollywood, West secured small roles in numerous shows and movies, many of which were Westerns. But when he landed the role as Batman about a decade into his career, West became extremely famous.

Once the original run of “Batman” ended in 1968, West had a bit of a lull in his career, with serious work being hard to come by. To support his family, he had to do “things that I wasn’t very comfortable doing,” the actor explained in the 2013 documentary “Starring Adam West.” He had exploit his fame for money with celebrity event appearances and risky ventures, such as a daredevil stunt where he drove a car through a truck.

West’s persistence eventually started earning him more comedic roles, though, as he embraced the love fans had for his zany Batman.

In April 2012, West was finally awarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To begin his acceptance speech, West addressed the crowd as “citizens of Gotham.”

The actor is survived by his wife, Marcelle Tagand Lear, whom he married 1970. West has four children over three marriages ― Hunter Anderson and Jonelle S. Anderson with his second wife, Nga Frisbie Dawson, and Nina West and Perrin West with Lear. West also has two stepchildren from the Lear marriage, Moya and Jill.

The Robin to his original Batman, Burt Ward, is now 71.

Superman Blames Batman for Everything in Injustice 2 Prequel Comic Book Series

Writer Tom Taylor is back for the Injustice 2 comic book series, which tells the story in between the first game and leads into the sequel. The comic is a digital-first series that releases weekly chapters online every Tuesday (starting April 11) and will be released in print each month (starting on May 1 for the first issue).

The story of the first game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, showed an alternate world ruled by a tyrant Superman driven to the dark side by the grief of losing his wife Lois and their unborn child, all thanks to an attack by the Joker. The comic explored the five years between when this tragic incident happened and when Superman took rule over the world. It showed how Batman tried to stop him, with each side enlisting the help of various heroes and villains, and the many twists, turns, and deaths along the way.

Ben Affleck And Antoine Fuqua Are No Longer Directing ‘The Batman’ And ‘Scarface,’ Respectively

Two high-profile directors, Ben Affleck and Antoine Fuqua, stepped down from their high-profile reboots on Tuesday night, one to focus on his acting duties and the other to make a sequel instead. Hollywood roars on! 

The first was Affleck, who announced in 2015 his plans to co-write and direct a standalone Batman movie. Then Fuqua said he would be abandoning a reboot of the gangster classic “Scarface.”

Technically, Affleck’s vision for “The Batman” ― inspired by his work on last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ― was partly influenced by the DC comic books and partly by an original story. As of a Jan. 9 appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Affleck said he was indeed directing the upcoming film, then complained because no one seemed interested in what he was promoting at the time, the soon-to-be box-office bummer “Live By Night.” 

But apparently portraying the Caped Crusader was plenty for the elder Affleck brother, who will still star in and produce the movie, according to Variety.

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions. Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give,” the actor said in a statement. “It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. I am still in this, and we are making it, but we are currently looking for a director. I remain extremely committed to this project, and look forward to bringing this to life for fans around the world.”

Affleck’s replacement probably won’t be “Batman v Superman” director Zack Snyder, who is busy making this year’s “Justice League,” in which Affleck is set to appear as part of a three-picture contract with Warner Bros. Variety reports that “Cloverfield” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” director Matt Reeves’ name has been tossed around as a possible substitute.

This is not the first time a star director has exited a Batman sequel. After Warner Bros. became nervous that Tim Burton had made 1992’s “Batman Returns” too dark for children, the studio hired Joel Schumacher as a replacement. Revenue soared, but reviews dwindled. Today, Schumacher’s two Batman installments are often mocked. (No pressure, Ben!)

As for “Scarface,” director Fuqua (”Training Day,” “Olympus Has Fallen”) had to choose between that film and a sequel to 2014’s “The Equalizer,” which Variety and The Hollywood Reporter indicate is on the fast track at Sony, with Denzel Washington slated to reprise his role. Fuqua had already spent considerable time developing the “Equalizer” follow-up, so he picked that project.

The upcoming “Scarface” will be the second reboot of Howard Hawks and Richard Rosson’s 1932 film loosely based on the life of Al Capone. (The first remake was Brian De Palma’s 1983 version starring Al Pacino.) Diego Luno, fresh off a breakout role in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” is set to portray Tony Montana, the movie’s central drug kingpin. 

“Scarface” has a 2018 release in mind, while “The Batman” hasn’t announced a target date.

Batman Annual #1 Review

Batman Annual #1 is one of those comics that sells itself on the strength of its ensemble cast. Where else can you buy a comic that features such an an impressive lineup of classic Batman creators and current favorites? None of the stories within are necessarily career-defining work, but the overall package offers a fun look at how the Batman family celebrate the holidays.

This issue opens with a new story from current Batman writer Tom King and rotating artist David Finch. The story essentially serves as a new origin story for Ace the Bat-hound, tracing the poor pup’s journey from rejected Joker experiment to valued member of the Wayne household. Basically, if you’ve enjoyed Grant Morrison and Pete Tomasi’s work with the Bat-pet menagerie, you’ll be right at home here. King’s script makes for a lighthearted alternative to his darker work on the main series, and one that’s suitably heartwarming. It’s not a story that caters especially well to Finch’s storytelling strengths, but Finch is still able to convey the warm emotion of King’s script.

Designed especially for kids. This luggage featuring Batman was created by Heys with the unique characteristics of children in mind. Incorporating several design features that benefit children, these cases are the perfect travel companion. This beautiful case has Batman specially printed onto its hardshell surface. In creating a ‘High-end’ series for Batman, our designers incorporated several children-specific features. One of these is the internal ‘reversed-curved’ handle system that curves the handle inwards & upwards closer to the child, making it much more comfortable for the child – at a low height – to hold and navigate the case. The Patent Protected design of this case also allows the wheels to ‘protrude’ out. This protrusion keeps the case elevated, so that even when being rolled at a very low height off the floor, the wheels will be the only point of contact and the case will continue to roll with ease. The cases weigh in at a mere 3.7 lbs, and feature our inline skate wheels that make their rolling even smoother, so any child can easily wheel these fun cases around. They also have a zipper closure system, that when opened reveals a beautifully lined interior as well as a zippered divider for internal organization.

The 8 Stages Of Watching ‘Batman & Robin’ On Netflix

For whatever masochistic reason, the film “Batman & Robin” is trending on Netflix, and has been for a few weeks or so. Helmed and steered clear off a cliff by Joel Schumacher, “Batman & Robin” stars George Clooney as the caped crusader with nipples on his batsuit.

One of the plot points is that Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred is dying, and you see him in various scenes privately wincing from some unknown pain. Well, it’s clear now that just being in this movie was probably physically paining the actor who played Alfred, Michael Gough.

It’s an awful movie. And I fell for watching it.

It began like any other Saturday: no pants, a vague sense that I had embarrassed myself the night before, and the urge to drown my brain in some mindless Netflix viewing.

Thus began the eight stages of watching “Batman & Robin” on Netflix.

 


STAGE 1 – Optimistic Amnesia

Maybe it wasn’t as bad as I remember! I mean, it was goofy, I remember that much, but maybe it’s goofy in a “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” kind of way.

 


STAGE 2 - Regret

I’ve made a huge mistake.

 


STAGE 3 – Confusion

Who green-lit this? OMG, they just go-go-gadgeted ice skates from their boots. And now they’re fighting hockey team henchmen. Did Robin just pull out a laser gun? This feels wrong …

 


STAGE 4 – Uncomfortable Laughter

The only entertaining thing is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ice puns, because by comparison to the rest of the so-bad-it’s-funny film, those are high quality hilarity.

 


STAGE 5 – Pun Delirium

You no longer have a reasonable grasp on reality and your brain is quickly liquifying. 

 


STAGE 6 – Full-On Joker Dementia 

You’re a zombie. A jolly, smiling zombie.

 


 STAGE  7 – Discombobulation

The standard notions of direction and position have lost all meaning. You are lost in a multi-dimensional spacial hellscape for which there is no escape.

 


STAGE 8 - Death

There’s no chance of resuscitation at this point. Like telling your friends you’ll stop out for “just one beer.” Once you’ve begun, it’s already too late.

 

 

Anyway, hello from heaven! It’s pretty nice up here! It’s all the Arnie puns you can handle, you get to watch Joel Schumacher try to direct his way out of a paper bag for all eternity, and the batsuits don’t have nipples! 

PARADISE.

 

Huge thanks to fellow lover of puns Kate Bratskier for taking a flurry of photos for me and being so … cool.  She snows what’s up. (Also, apologies to Kate Bratskier for the previous sentence.)

See Wonder Woman And Lex Luthor In New ‘Batman V Superman’ Photos

Batman and Superman won’t face off until next year, but the two superheroes are already making their presence known in a major way.

In addition to their appearance at San Diego Comic-Con next week, Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent from the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” cover this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly. The real star of the cover, however, is Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.

The issue of the magazine also features Affleck describing a “sexy” Bond-like scene between Wonder Woman and Batman, as well as exclusive looks at Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor (who surprisingly has a full head of hair) and Batman and Superman facing off for the first time.

Zack Snyder revealed to EW that his film actually began as an easter egg suggestion for “Man of Steel.” While in a meeting with Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer, Snyder said, “What about at the end of the movie we do a scene where there’s a crate full of kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor?” Then the idea turned into a full feature. “Once you say it out loud, it’s a problem, because you can’t unsay it,” Snyder told the magazine.

While we don’t know many specifics about “Batman v Superman” beyond the official synopsis and official trailer, we now know a little more about Snyder’s version of the Caped Crusader. Affleck told EW that he plays a “more embittered and cynical” Batman. “He’s on the verge of being swallowed up by the anger and the rage that we see haunt this character in the other manifestations of it,” the actor told EW.

Check out the cover photo below and the exclusive photos over at EW.com.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” opens March 25, 2016.

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ May Be Game Of The Year — But There’s One Big Problem

arkhamknight

Batman attempts to deactivate an exploding collar on Catwoman in “Arkham Knight.”



Months after GamerGate first set video game culture ablaze with unbelievable resistance to the idea of feminist perspectives in the gaming industry, we have a new title that features some of the most compelling female characters in pop culture. “Batman: Arkham Knight,” which came out Tuesday, spotlights Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Oracle and Harley Quinn in major roles. But while these women are often represented as strong, independent and able in other media, their featured roles here often tell a different story: They are damsels in distress.

Many, many people will play this game, if previous entries are any indication. The last main title in the series, which has a couple of spinoffs, sold over 5 million copies. And that aside, “Arkham Knight” is actually an exceptional game taken on its own merits: It is devoted to a cohesive aesthetic and narrative in a way few other games are, the set pieces are compelling and it’s brimming with things to do. One moment you’ll be studying the microscopic details of a crime scene, and five minutes later you’re dodging drone fire in the middle of a populated city street. It all feels crunchy and good.

“Arkham Knight” will likely earn accolades as one of the standout titles of the year — it already holds a 91 on Metacritic — and that is precisely why its sins should not be ignored.

(Note: The text that follows contains some spoilers for the storyline in “Arkham Knight.”)

poison ivy
Poison Ivy appears in “Arkham Knight” with a barely-there shirt and a mossy crotch.

It’s really no big secret that gaming and tech are male-dominated industries, even if consumers are split basically down the middle in terms of gender. Plenty of people will play “Arkham Knight” and probably ignore its oftentimes troubling presentation of women — perhaps that’s simply because the game is exciting, and as soon as you settle into a moment, something explodes and you’re off to something else.

But others will play the game and feel offended. Or disgusted. Or threatened. Or simply unwelcome. Even if those people were outnumbered 100 to 1 in a population of 5 million customers, it would be worthwhile to examine why and do better next time. Because here’s the trouble with “Arkham Knight”: It is a great game tarnished by its dreadful depictions of certain characters and situations.

arkham knight
Poison Ivy is held hostage in “Arkham Knight.”

The baseline problem with “Arkham Knight” is that instead of taking opportunities to depict strong women, the game makes them weak. For the most part, the female characters suck.

When you first come upon Poison Ivy early in the story, she has a gun to her head. You rescue her, and then you lock her in the back of the Batmobile and drag her to police headquarters. Later in the game, Batman determines that Ivy can communicate with — literally — a big old tree that could counteract the effects of a chemical weapon that Scarecrow intends to detonate somewhere in Gotham City. So Batman hauls his way back to lockup and drags her back to the Batmobile like she’s a petulant child. Poison Ivy is basically a power-up for the player to collect, like a mushroom in “Super Mario.”

She is barely wearing clothes throughout the entire ordeal.

arkham knight
“Arkham Knight” recreates a troubling scene from “The Killing Joke” in which Barbara Gordon is shot and paralyzed by the Joker.

Catwoman, often portrayed as Batman’s equal, fares no better. Like Ivy, her storyline begins in custody. Her outfit is unzipped enough to show a massive slice of cleavage. Why? Because Catwoman is “sexy” and it’s apparently hard to portray sexiness without showing boob?

The Riddler has strapped her to a chair, and Batman is called to rescue her. You arrive on the scene and find that there’s an entire ordeal required to free her: Riddler has fitted her with a choker that will explode unless you deactivate a number of locks. The gameplay sometimes has Batman and Catwoman working together — you can switch between them at points — but the pattern almost invariably requires Batman to complete some feat of cunning, force and reflexes while Catwoman bums around in a locked chamber. Her liberation is essentially a prize for you, the player.

Things are absolutely worst for Oracle, a hero in a wheelchair who assists Batman remotely. To detail her storyline would reveal much about the largest plot points in “Arkham Knight,” but things do not go well for her. An incredibly problematic storyline from the comic books is retread in vivid detail: She is abducted and maimed and exists almost entirely in this context to stir angst in the featured male characters. Batman, Robin, Commissioner Gordon and Alfred fret over her like a baby missing from the crib.

harley quinn
Harley Quinn steps up.

These are not failures from a gameplay perspective. But they are artistic missteps, awful quirks that will make this game — and perhaps all video games by extension — seem incredibly stupid to any critical thinker who may have thought to give “Arkham Knight” a try.

This game does not exist in a vacuum. It arrives at a moment when women are still being shut out of the gaming and tech industries to the point where many are even looking for work elsewhere. It is bizarre that “Arkham Knight” both includes many women and diminishes them so plainly.

All of that said, there are some important caveats. First: Harley Quinn — Joker’s deranged on-again, off-again girlfriend — is actually kind of cool this time around. Her character design in “Arkham City” (NSFW) was incredibly sexualized and seemingly intended purely for the male gaze. (For an interesting discussion of this very topic, listen to episode 58 of the lovely “Isometric” podcast.)

Here, Harley Quinn’s decked out in a pretty serious tutu and barks orders at a bunch of armed dudes. She’s more covered than not. The whole thing struck me as fairly whimsical and a step in the right direction, even if it’s not a perfect representation.

And no one can argue that the comic book source material is free from cheesecake. There are, in fact, many comics featuring these characters that are several orders of magnitude more sexist than “Arkham Knight.” Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn in particular are often exploited for sexy fluff, as this page from “Harley and Ivy #2” shows. It’s by the great Paul Dini and Bruce Timm:

poison ivy

But there’s a major difference between this comic and something like “Arkham Knight” — something that maybe isn’t so obvious. This Poison Ivy could be appealing to men and women alike. The entire miniseries is devoted to Harley and Ivy wreaking havoc on their own terms — it’s “sexy” more than “sexist.” They actively and successfully strike back against the forces that oppress them. They aren’t seeking the approval of men, and they certainly don’t need a player to rescue them.

And not that we need an eye for an eye, but the two ladies also take a second to objectify some dudes in the third issue:

harley and ivy

It’s ostensibly fun for everyone. And that’s what we could use a little more of in these games.

Josh Hartnett Lost Out On Another Role Because He Passed On ‘Batman’

Josh Hartnett regrets passing on “Batman,” but not for the reason you may think.

Speaking to HuffPost Live on Wednesday, the actor explained that he’d met with Christopher Nolan while the director was casting for the 2005 installment, but he’d actually hoped to discuss his next film, “The Prestige,” instead.

“[‘Batman’] was not what I was interested in,” Hartnett recalled. “I really wanted to convince him that when he did the ‘The Prestige,’ maybe hire me.”

“And then, of course, as time went on, he ended up hiring the guy who he hired to play ‘Batman’ to play in ‘The Prestige,'” Hartnett continued, referring to Christian Bale.

The experience served as a teachable moment for the “Penny Dreadful” star.

“I realized much later that this is a relationship business,” said Hartnett, adding that he “regret[s] not forming a relationship with a great filmmaker [Christopher Nolan].”

“That was not necessarily where my head was at the time,” he concluded.

Jaden Smith Wore A White Batman Costume To Kimye’s Wedding

Yes, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding was an over-the-top, star-studded circus, but Jaden Smith was strangest sighting at the affair.

Seriously, the kid wore a white Batman costume — at least to the reception, anyway. If you think we are joking, look no further “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis’ Instagram photo, in which he and Kourtney Kardashian were photobombed by “white Batman.”

Francis and Kourtney weren’t the only people he photobombed, either. Family friend and hairstylist, Clyde Haygood, also posted an a photo of the 15-year-old swooping in on his snapshot with Kris Jenner, which he captioned, “And then…. This cRaZYyyy #albino #bat flew in… “

We’re thinking maybe Smith’s rumored girlfriend Kylie Jenner has a thing for superheroes, because a source told E! News the two teenagers were actually seen “making out” following the wedding ceremony at Forte di Belvedere on May 24. And let’s just say, it’s not the first time we’ve seen Smith in a superhero costume while he’s been hanging out with Jenner.

Batman vs. Superman Release Delayed To May 6, 2016

Warner Bros. chose the Friday before a holiday weekend to announce that Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” sequel will not come out on July 17, 2015 as had been previously planned. Instead, the Superman versus Batman film, which stars Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel and Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader, will now arrive in theaters on May 6, 2016. The new date puts the DC Comics adaptation in direct competition with an untitled Marvel film that Disney had already slotted in for that calendar position.

“We share the fans’ excitement to see DC Comics’ most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theaters in May 2016,” Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution said in a press release.

The sentiment was echoed by Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of international distribution for Warner Bros. Pictures.

“We know that there is already great anticipation building for the next Super Hero [sic] film from Zack Snyder, and we are equally eager to see what he has in store for Superman and Batman as they share the big screen for the first time ever,” she said in the statement.

In place of the “Man of Steel” sequel, Warner Bros. will now release Joe Wright’s “Peter Pan” on July 17, 2015. Hugh Jackman is reportedly starring in that film as Blackbeard.

As THR writer Borys Kit noted on Twitter, the first weekend in May has traditionally been a Marvel stronghold. Indeed every “Iron Man” film, “Marvel’s The Avengers” and Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” all opened during that frame. (This year, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is set for May 2.) In addition to the untitled Marvel film currently slotted for May 6, 2016, Marvel also has “X-Men: Apocalypse” set for May 27, 2016. (The “X-Men” films, of course, are released by Twentieth Century Fox, while the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, which includes the untitled feature, are Disney properties.)

By shifting the Batman vs. Superman film off its July 17, 2015 date, Warner Bros. keeps Snyder’s project away from “Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which is set for release on May 1, 2015.

‘Girls’ Star Adam Driver Could Play Nightwing In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

Maybe Ray can play The Flash. As reported by TheWrap on late Friday night, “Girls” star Adam Driver is among three actors in contention to star as Dick Grayson a.k.a. Nightwing a.k.a. Batman’s sidekick in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” sequel, “Batman Vs. Superman.” The trade publication was not privy to the other two names.

That Grayson will be part of Snyder’s 2015 film was first reported by Latino Review on Wednesday. The site noted that “Batman Vs. Superman” producers were looking for “a young John Hawkes-type” to play the role, which will find Grayson and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) estranged as the film starts. (Grayson, of course, was first known by Robin in the Batman comics.)

Whether Driver, who plays Adam on the HBO series “Girls” and was a recent Emmy nominee, snags the role is unclear, but his career is definitely on the upswing.

“I’m definitely trying to figure this all out as I go along, how to craft a career,” Driver told The New York Times in a recent interview. “As things get bigger, I have days of depression, sitting in the house and wondering ‘What are you doing? Is it even relevant?’ […] I’m not against Hollywood at all. I just want to be involved with good writing and work that has some kind of meaning.”

“Batman Vs. Superman” is due out in theaters on July 17, 2015. For more on Driver and the rumor, head to TheWrap.
