'Batman '66: The Complete TV Series' details arise from panel with Adam West
"[For this video], I still have my original script -- my script from the pilot, with all my notes in it," West said, adding that the doc features him going over his script notes while discussing his approach to portraying Gotham's Caped Crusader.
After West applauded the set's restoration efforts, the panelists engaged in a brief Q & A -- where Ward revealed that, of all the cast members, he was the most accident prone.
"We were doing a stunt in the Batmobile," Ward said, "and I should have let my stunt double do it when I saw that [Adam's] was doing his."
The stunt required the Batmobile to drive at 50 MPH and while on the road, the passenger door opened and almost shot Ward out of the speeding vehicle. (Holy Wrong Day Not to Buckle Up, Batman!) The panel ended with West being asked why he has never made an appearance in any of the live-action Batman films. "Simple," West said. "Because they've never asked me." Your move, Zack Snyder. "
Batman '66" goes on sale Nov. 11 and can be pre-ordered online now.
