Are 1960s Batman & Robin Set to Make a Return?
After seeing Batman callously mow down his enemies with a machine gun in Batman v Superman, a lot of fans wouldn't mind seeing a lighter version of the character return to screens. And there has never been a lighter version of Batman than the one portrayed by Adam West in the 1960s Batman TV series. But is West set to reprise his role? 

It definitely seems like he has something Batman-related up his sleeve. During an appearance at MegaCon 2016, West confirmed that he and Burt Ward, who portrayed Robin on the old series, are working on a top-secret project together

Well, I have a gag order...However... No no, me and Burt have been working on a new project that's just gonna knock your socks off, and believe me, it's our Batman and Robin!

So what could it be? Well, last year West claimed he and Ward were voicing the characters for a new animated film that was supposed to be due out this year, but that was the last we heard of it. Perhaps it's resurfaced, or maybe there's a whole new project in the works. Honestly, a new live action show in the vein of West's Conan O'Brien/Robert Smigel-penned '90s pilot Lookwell would be pretty amazing, but we don't want to get too excited.
