Expect to see some very old, and today unknown actors, such as Frank Gorshin as the Riddler, Cesar Romero as the Joker, Burgess Meredith as the Penguin and Julie Newmar as Catwoman. In case you wanna check what the most famous crime-fighting duo has been doing back in 60's watch the video below:

Adam West in Batman from 60s

The Classic Batman series DVD will be precious for those 'old' fans who were growing up as kids in the 60's. What younger generation probably didn't know is that this series was executed as sort of pop-art comedy with lots of theatrical humor in it.

2. Dark Knight Returns for the 3rd time?

With so many TV and cartoon series and movies about Batman, it's hard not to get confused when you read the news like that. The Dark Knight wash Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy where the 2nd movie (2012) was entitled The Dark Knight Rises (not returns!). Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" was one of the best and the most influential cartoon series published in 1986. Miller is in talk with current Batman writer Scott Snyder and DC comics to co-write the third Dark Knight mini-series. The 2nd one was called "Dark Knight Strikes Again" and didn't go that well with the readers audience. To make things a little bit more complicated, there's also a two-parts animated film "The Dark Knight Returns" , which is clearly adaptation of the comic book. The first part was released in 2012, while the second one in 2013.
