‘Gotham City 14 Miles’ Explains Why The 1960s ‘Batman’ TV Series Matters

My love of Batman comes primarily from the Batman television series, which ran from 1966-1968. It’s where my love of Batman was born.

I remember, as a kid, watching and obsessing over the pop, campy fun of Batman and Robin fighting bright characterizations of Gotham City’s worst foes. I watched the 1966 Batman movie countless times as it aired on cable, and watched the television episodes each and every day as it re-aired on The Family Channel. The show is something that I have grown up with. So, to me it was quite surprising to look towards the other fans of Batman and see that they don’t share the same love for the series that I do, and that most fans like their Batman dark, brooding, and surrounded by a negative version of Gotham City. That’s why it serves as a great pleasure to see that Sequart Research & Literacy Organization has collected a group of 14 essays in a book called Gotham City 14 Miles showcasing the reasons why the television series is important.

The essays, written by top writers including one of my favorite comic scribes Chuck Dixon, focuses its energy on the Batman craze of the sixties, the role of women, camp, all of the celebrity appearances, and the series’ long-lasting effects on pop culture.

Legends of the Super Heroes DVD It’s no secret that I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with Batman, and that obsession certainly includes the Adam West, camp-fueled television series of the 1960s. So, when I saw that the ultra-rare Legends of the Super Heroes is getting released on DVD on October 19, I could hardly contain myself. This is the one artifact from the Adam West era that I have never seen, and guys… it’s totally the stuff of legend.

In this remastered format from the original tape that was believed to be destroyed, Batman (Adam West) and Robin (Burt Ward) team up with The Flash, Green Lantern, and more members of The Justice League to face off against The Riddler (Frank Gorshin, who is totally insane), Mordru, Weather Wizard, and more in a live-action onslaught of awesome. The DVD includes the episodes “The Challenge” and “The Roast,” but it also features never-before-seen deleted scenes that are most likely just as crazy as the entire premise for the DVD.

Tonight Show with Jay Leno: Nicolas Cage & Adam West

Nicolas Cage, who stars as Big Daddy in Kick-Ass, made an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno this week to promote his new superhero action film, which opens in theaters today.

In Kick-Ass, which is based on the comic book series by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., Cage’s Big Daddy is a Batman-type superhero out for justice while plotting revenge on a mob boss. His costume and gadgets all scream ‘Batman’ as does his motivations, but Big Daddy is a lot more violent and unforgiving than the Caped Crusader, as evidenced by the clip from the film that was shown on The Tonight Show.

For Cage’s appearance on the late night talk show, host Jay Leno decided to test the actor’s knowledge on Batman by going beyond just asking him trivia questions. Instead, he had Adam West, who played Batman on the 1960’s television series Batman, come out to play against him! Now, Cage is known for his love of comics and superheros, but can he really beat Batman in a Batman trivia contest?

Find out in this video below from the trivia segment, which also includes the aforementioned clip from the film.
