Well, this is Batman's 75th birthday!  Mr. Furmanek, are you throwing subtle hints that you may be involved with the compilation of extras for the set?


Bring "The continuing story of PEYTON PLACE" home on DVD: the one that started it all- from Dallas and Dynasty to Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl!!! Starting this May, see the legendary saga starring Mia Farrow, Ryan O'Neal, Barbara Parkins, and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone on DVD thru...

No, I have nothing to do with it. Just sharing some interesting items that I've come across in my travels.

From Daily Variety, four days before the start of principal photography. This listing would remain

for over two months until the film wrapped production in late November 1954.

Kevin Smith is co-writing a comic book sequel to the Batman/ Green Hornet crossover, with hopes that it can become an animated film, with the voices of West, Ward, and Van Williams. (Bruce Lee, of course, is deceased, as is Roger Carmel, who played their adversary, Col. Gumm.)

Seems the 60s Batman floodgates are really opening.

 

The article is refreshing to see that people discuss the '60s show with affection.

I think a Batman 1966 animated film would make a lot of sense.

For those concerned that WB hasn't officially said anything about the release of the show, Warner Bros. put out this press release yesterday, which acknowledges the release of the '66 show.

Home Entertainment will bring fans an array of new Batman titles throughout the year, including the highly anticipated release of the Batman ’66 TV series for the first time ever. Other new releases include animated films Son of Batman (May 6) and Assault on Arkham (summer 2014). Additionally, a 25th Anniversary Edition of Tim Burton’s Batman feature film will be released in the fall.

An interview with Burt Ward reveals that he, Adam West, and Julie Newmar have been recording interviews for the bonus material, which Ward says focus on "more sophisticated aspects of the show."

 

He also says he thinks the release will be in late November, and that he and West will be at ComicCon this summer for a big push. As far as the release date, it makes sense, but Ward doesn't really know, so that should be considered rumor at this point.

I think its more than a rumor.  The Warner press release you linked to identifies the 1966 show as coming this year.  However, it's clear that they still have a lot to do.  My guess is that they are pushing for November.

I was only saying the November date is a rumor. The show is confirmed as coming this year. I happen to think the November date is likely.

I can't really imagine it coming out earlier than November. There's a lot of work to be done.

I have no idea whether or not the series will also be available on blu-ray, but I wouldn't be worried specifically because Ward didn't use the term as such. I saw Julie Andrews on Craig Ferguson's show a year or so ago and she was plugging the release of one of her movies on blu-ray and neither she nor Craig Ferguson knew what blu-ray meant.

He held it up and said, "What's a blu-ray?" And she said she didn't know.

"It looks like a DVD," he suggested.

"Yes, it does look like a DVD. It must be a kind of DVD."

So I never worry when the stars aren't entirely clear about the media format.

Makes sense that they'd want to get it out in time for the Christmas shopping season.    Many Bat-fans I'm sure will be seeing it all nicely wrapped this year!

I thought blu-ray was mentioned in one of the WB press releases (might have been the one about the various "special events" planned for Batman (the character)'s 75th Anniversary.

 

We'll know soon enough anyway, at ComiCon (as I have been saying way before there was ever any official word).

There's going to be a 75th anniversary event in early May in New York. Maybe some details will come out then.

For a project of this magnitude, of course it will be released on Bluray.
