| I didn't think we had a prayer of seeing this series on DVD (in any form) this decade! |
Well, we have seen quite a few things released to DVD that we thought would "never" be released. Things such as unedited SNL season sets (not counting the bumpers) all known cuts of Blade Runner, the Donner cut of Superman II, the original versions of the Star Wars trilogy (even though they were just non-anamorphic, ported Laserdisc transfers) just to name a few things. So, even though it looked grim, I never really doubted that it would ever be released.
| The huge success of The Dark Knight definitely triggered this whole thing, no question about it. |
It's probably no coincidence that with the success of TDK indications of a possible release are leaking out. However, if Adam West is currently working on special features, his participation was probably worked out before the last week and a half.
| It'll be interesting to see if this is limited to just West or if Burt "Boy Wonder" Ward has been invited also. |
I'm sure he will be. He was there for the commentary and special features for the Batman: The Movie DVD release. People have been waiting so long for this that if Fox does have to go ahead to release this, they will probably go the extra mile in terms of features.
