Batman is going back to his roots. A certain actor who had a HUGE impact on the Batman franchise may pop up in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. It hasn't been confirmed or denied but this casting is a fun possibility!
What would you say if you saw Christian Bale come face to face with Bruce Wayne of yesteryear? Are we talking about George Clooney? Nope, go back further. Michael Keaton? You're getting warmer. Adam West? Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!
Over on Twitter, Floss Magazine posted a tweet about West making a cameo in The Dark Knight Rises.
"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"
Warner Bros. themselves haven't confirmed this report so we're categorizing it as a rumor. We're kind of hoping that they don't say yes or no to this casting. The uncertainty would keep us on our toes and have us wondering where and when the old Bruce might appear!
Since The Dark Knight Rises is Nolan's final installment in the series, we'd let a little stunt-casting slide. Hell, while they're at it, throw in Julie Newmar or Lee Meriwether as a random girlfriend for Alfred. We'll buy into it.
