RUMOR: Could Adam West Make A Cameo In The Dark Knight Rises?

RUMOR: Could Adam West Make A Cameo In <I>The Dark Knight Rises</i>?

Recent reports from Twitter have placed veteran Batman actor Adam West in the vicinity of the filming for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Cameo, or coincidence?...

Are you one of the many, MANY fans who have been hoping for star of the original Batman television series Adam West, to make an appearance in Christopher Nolan's current Batman franchise? Well you just might be in luck. Recent reports from Twitter suggest that it might be a possibility. These reports/sightings have placed Adam West in the same vicinity of several current filming locations for The Dark Knight Rises.

Now be sure to note that these are just sightings of Adam West, no one (So far) has spotted the actor on set, or talking/meeting with anyone involved with filming. So for now it could be possible (and likely) that Mr. West is just on vacation in the same area that The Dark Knight Rises is filming. Although it certainly is quite the coincidence if we are to believe these sightings.



Be sure to Confirm or Debunk this rumor by clicking the thumbs up or down button below.

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Garly Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.

I thought West said he didn't care for Nolan's Batman movies.

@SeaSerpentine Well you pay some one a good amount of money and They'll make it there business to care
SeaSerpentine - 7/2/2011, 6:48 PM
@Hellsing Makes sense.

no one messes with adam we!
Deadshot - 7/2/2011, 7:20 PM
Very cool if West is in it!
JULEZ13 - 7/2/2011, 8:01 PM
CAMEO!!! Yay! Sounds cool. I'll be on the look out for his scene throughout the film.

"Adam West, Adam West. A little bit lower now. Adam West, Adam West."

I really wanna meet Adam West. My 9th grade English teacher got to meet him at some con and got a picture with him.
BillyBatson1000 - 7/2/2011, 9:58 PM
Look him up on Face Book and ask him. His daughter is actually running his profile page. No sh*t.

Do it! West, Conroy and Hamill.
And to everyone who is complaining about the cast being so big. Look at how many different people are in a movie. Any movie. Always hundreds and hundreds of different people. So now some of the extras are famous and we are upset. But hey if it was a hot chick or Stan Lee we would be all for it.
Other side of the fence. Stop posting when B List celebs get minor roles in a movie, when it is possible that it doesn't even make it to the final product. Especially when the person has never had anything to do with Batman (or whatever movie character) in the past. "Hey you know that guy who was on an old Lie to Me and a random episode of Las Vegas? Well he is going to in charge of factory safety in a ten second scene in a Batman movie."

I hope its true. Adam West was awesome as Batman. Even if its a very small role its still awesome.
Starlight - 7/2/2011, 10:35 PM
This is a joke, right?
Jagfan28 - 7/3/2011, 12:55 AM
He's going to play old Bruce.
Jefferys - 7/3/2011, 1:17 AM
I feel a Batman Beyond coming on!
95 - 7/3/2011, 2:40 AM
Haha, maybe he plays Catwoman's pimp.
JBM - 7/3/2011, 3:04 AM
why not, nolan likes to put a butt load of extras in his movies for no reason.........the dark knight is an overrated piece, cant wait until they re-boot the franchise to please comic book fans... i dont need a pussy batman that wants to quit for rachel dawes
UltimaRex - 7/3/2011, 3:41 AM
Maybe one of the crew looks like Adam West?
CaptainPresley - 7/3/2011, 3:43 AM
I hope so. With this being the 7th post Adam West Batman movie, I think a cameo is long over due. I met Mr. West in the early 90's in Chicago and he is a great guy.
Ryden - 7/3/2011, 4:05 AM
Yes Adam West is the man! He deserves a cameo, I always thought him and Keaton should have got small parts in this franchise.

@deathmetalbrain- Clearly you've missed the point of the original Batman, it was NEVER meant to be taking seriously. It was all tounge in cheek and with that in mind, he is an awesome Batman.

@JSloan- Why? That isn't relevant to the thread and it wasn't that great.

LP4 - 7/3/2011, 5:12 AM
@Ryden- Agreed, West AND Keaton certainly deserve cameos in the Nolan films. Too bad Keaton won't appear though...he was my most fav live action Batman
RunDTC - 7/3/2011, 6:02 AM
he'll be Robin
level1paladin - 7/3/2011, 7:19 AM
Let's hope he's in the movie. It'd be great for Keaton to show up as well. Since he's old now he might humble himself one day.
Ryguy88 - 7/3/2011, 7:26 AM
That would be pretty funny, I hope it happens.
Bandrews1 - 7/3/2011, 7:34 AM
I always was thought it would be cool if Michael Keaton had some sort of a cameo, but I think this would awesome as well.
McFinn138 - 7/3/2011, 8:06 AM
I saw him buy a stack of porno mags once. True story.
mbomb22 - 7/3/2011, 8:28 AM
maybe Batman gets attacked by a shark and Adam West has some of his shark repellent on him

Minato - 7/3/2011, 9:28 AM
I would actually like him to have some small cameo. Like a pilot or store owner or something small that would Kick @$$.
Whether you repect his contribution to Bat mythology or not without him we wouldnt have Burton or Nolan.
GeekMobRoanoke - 7/3/2011, 9:37 AM
I hope he gets the job.. He was at the Philadelphia comic-con and he charged 60 frikkin bucks for his autograph so he obviously needs the money. ( Yeah..You heard right..60 write his name)
hero1684 - 7/3/2011, 9:40 AM
That would be awesome! I think it would be great to see a humorous tie in by such a great and serious director such as C.N. A chance to show some relate-ability in the comic/tv world, but yet producing a epic film! And if that's true, why not an appearance by Henry Cavill (Superman)??? PLEASE...

I'm soo siked for this movie! And by the way, nice to know the a "Batcopter" of some sort will be used, but how about the new Batmobile/Tumbler???

DarthTesla - 7/3/2011, 9:40 AM
This needs to actually happen. He should be revealed as the true leader of the League of Shadows.
GLprime2814 - 7/3/2011, 10:51 AM
I think it would be cool to c him and Burt ward as detectives in the background.
continuezero - 7/3/2011, 10:53 AM
This is a Fail IMO. Batman has moved should West. I like West and I actually like the Old Skool Show but I can do without the cheesiness he would bring to a cameo in TDKR.
Canon108 - 7/3/2011, 10:53 AM
You know, I remember when Michael Keaton visited the set of 'The Dark Knight' back when they first started filming it in Chicago...and guess what, he didn't cameo in it either. Just like Tom Welling wasn't in 'Batman Begins' like what was rumoured either. There have been a ton of false claims so until you either see West in the film or it's confirmed by the studio, it's %99.9 that he won't be in the film...
Canon108 - 7/3/2011, 10:56 AM

Here are the links to my above post...both Keaton and Welling were rumoured to be in the batman films but weren't in the end. This is most likely the case with Adam West...
Xandera - 7/3/2011, 11:27 AM
I doubt this is true...
Teois42 - 7/3/2011, 11:50 AM
This might just be the best movie ever now...
loganoneil - 7/3/2011, 12:42 PM
RUMOR!!! Dear god, PLEASE let this be a rumor! The old hack shouldn't be allowed anywhere NEAR the Batman set - Nolan has spent too much time and energy trying to pull the franchise AWAY from the stupid bullsh!t of the Wests and the Schumachers, bringing it back to its original DARK origins! Having West make a cameo would only acknoledge a part of the Bat's past MOST true fans would love to forget! What's next - nipples on the fetish-suit... AGAIN?!
AC1 - 7/3/2011, 1:12 PM
Maybe Batman takes a trip back to the 60s to work with the Adam West version of himself... or in the present day he gets transferred to Quahog
loganoneil - 7/3/2011, 2:17 PM
West's 'interpretation' is NOT the Dark Knight most fans have come to know and love, nor is he even close to Bob Kane's original vision for the character. Nolan HAS achieved 'something special' by taking the character back to its dark and mysterious roots! Blowing off camp and idiotic schtick-humor isn't being '...insecure about what SOME whiny fanboys will bitch about...', it's staying true to an ideal that has kept the Bat in the hearts and minds of his TRUE fans for decades. By West's own admission, he doesn't get Nolan's interpretation and think it's too dark - hell, this was the man who was offended that he didn't get the call when Burton made his original 'Batman' movie years ago (the unmitigated arrogance!)! F#CK the 'Dork' Knight - he doesn't DESERVE a cameo in this film! AS far as I'm concerned, he's no better than Stan Lee nowadays holding his hand out begging for attention scraps at the Hollywood table. The only difference is that Stan actually had a hand in the creation of the characters he's sponging off of now, whereas West is just a hack actor who happened to be in the right place at the right time!
