The Batman franchise has been in live production for a long time. It starts with Adam West in the original 60s television series, then moves to the big screen with Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney. Most recently, the darker version of The Dark Knight has been played by Christian Bale. The next entry in the series, The Dark Knight Rises may have a bit of surprise in store.
According to reports, Adam West has been seen on the set for the next film and it is suggested that he will be playing a role in the new film. Most likely a cameo of sorts. In fact, Floss magazine's Twitter feed published,
Hollywood big wigs confirmed actor Adam West (Batman on the TV series) will make a cameo on The Dark Knight Rises set to open July 20, 2012
My hopes for the cameo are that Batman somehow interacts with Quahog, RI and it is Mayor Adam West we will be seeing. Probably not, though.
