Holy Heavenly Choir Batman!

88, it's not a bad innings, and you really reinvigorated your career over the last few years.

Stuff Ben Affleck, you will ALWAYS be Batman to me.

Sorry Ponder but it was Adam West who passed, Burt played Robin and is very much alive
[regarding Alan Rickman] He had Tim Curry's ability to save the day by putting literally all the scenery in his mouth and gnawing on it like a deranged woodchuck.

I've taken the liberty of correcting the thread title.

Ta for the correction, I meant to put Adam West, but was trying to think of who played Robin at the same time and clearly put the wrong name. Age you know...

Until the Tim Burton Batman in 1989 Adam was simply the only Batman I knew. I think it's still one of the best known (and most parodied) versions. Only Fools and Horses, Wallace and Gromit even, and anything that had "Pow!" or "Wham!" printed up over the screen. Adam was quite happy to play up to this, taking roles like Mermaid Man in Spongebob Squarepants (with Burt Ward being the voice of Barnacle Boy). Rather denying the past he embraced it and cheerfully went along with it all, a real pro.

Outmaneuvered on all counts, I opt to change the rules.

Many great actors had played Batman, but Adam West was something special.
