It’s the face off Batman fans have been awaiting for awhile. The final performance of Adam West as Batman comes to home video with Batman vs. Two-Face. And he’s bringing Captain Kirk with him.
This is the sequel to last year’s surprisingly great Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. Batman vs. Two-Face pits the 1966 Batman and Robin against Two-Face (voiced by William Shatner).
When the mutilated master of multiplicity, Two-Face, begins staging a daring crime wave across Gotham, the Caped Crusaders must work double-time to discover his mysterious secret identity before they can halt his evil-doing – all the while combating the likes of Catwoman, Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Bookworm, Hugo Strange and King Tut!
The late Adam West leads the star-studded cast in his final performance as Batman. The beloved actor delivers an inspired turn opposite fellow pop culture icon William Shatner (Star Trek) as the criminally conflicted Harvey Dent/Two-Face. This is only the second production of any kind to feature the two titans of the fanboy realm together. West and Shatner first teamed in the 1963 Alexander The Great television series that never made it past the pilot.
The cast also boasts two more pop culture icons of the 1960s. Burt Ward is back for more ‘holy’ fun as the Boy Wonder himself, Robin, and Tony Award winner Julie Newmar reprises her role as the fiendish feline, Catwoman.
I’m pretty excited about this one. I don’t think Two-Face was ever on the 1966 series and Shatner is a perfect choice for this take on the character.
