Bat Signal to light up Los Angeles in tribute to Adam West

Acilia Dean | 16 Giugno, 2017, 03:08

Mayor Eric Garcetti posted the announcement of the tribute will be on Thursday at 9 p.m.at Los Angeles City Hall. DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns said: "Like many others, Adam West as Batman was part of my childhood". Playing the critical role of the Dark Knight in the classic 1960s series, West was always in a mysterious black cape bringing smiles to his audience's faces.

Animated comedy Family Guy will also honour West this weekend.

"Family Guy has lost its mayor, and I have lost a friend", MacFarlane wrote. The image will be projected onto the Los Angeles City Hall tower and the event promises the attendance of some "Bat-Guests" to boot.

Batman originally aired for three seasons, broadcasting 120 episodes from 1966 to 1968 on ABC with a feature-length movie in 1966.


Following the news that Adam West had died of leukemia, Entertainment Weekly reported that Fox will be re-airing an Adam West-centric episode on Sunday in tribute of the legendary TV actor.

After serving in the Army, he went to Hollywood and changed his name to Adam West, and began appearing on a number of television series, including "Bonanza", "Perry Mason" and "Bewitched".

The City of Angels may seem at first glance an odd metropolis to honor the Dark Knight, protector of gritty, cynical Gotham City, a comic-book stand-in for NY.

If you're unable to attend the L.A. ceremony, you can donate to the Adam West Memorial Fund for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
