POWERLESS: Television's Former BATMAN Adam West Set To Guest Star

Golly gee Willikers Batman! WB TV announced today that television's former Dark Knight, Adam West, is coming to NBC's Powerless for a funny arc! Come get your first details on his guest spot now!

WBTV issued a press release earlier today, announcing that Adam West, television's original Batman, has signed on to guest-star on an upcoming episode of NBC's DC comedy series Powerless

He'll appear as Wayne Industries chairman Dean West, who arrives in Charm City with some pretty bad news for Emily and Van as it looks like the company will have to make some major cuts after a devastating attack in Gotham City. 

Check out the full release below:


BURBANK, Calif. (March 7, 2017) — Gotham comes to Charm City when the iconic Adam West, who played the role of Batman on television in the Sixties, guest stars in an upcoming episode of Powerless as Dean West, chairman of Wayne Industries. Following an attack on Gotham City, Wayne Industries has to make some cuts and Mr. West visits Charm City to deliver the bad news to Van and Emily. Will the dynamic duo of Van and Emily be able to save the team at Wayne Security, or are our Charm City Heroes destined for the unemployment line?

Executive producers Patrick Schumacker and Justin Halpern said, "Powerless is billed as DC's first comedy, but we'll always view Mr. West as the founding father of comedy in the DC Universe, thanks to his work in the original Batman television series. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a living legend.”

This won't be West's first return to the DC universe as he's previously returned to voice characters on Batman: The Animated Series and Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and just last year, he reprised his role as the Dark Knight for the animated film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. He's also collaborated with the Powerless crew before, having provided the voiceover for the comics-inspired opening credits. 

So, what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!
