IGN recently interviewed the original Batman on film, Adam West, to get his thoughts on being inducted in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The website also asked West a few questions about The Dark Knight Rises:
IGN: Christopher Nolan’s new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, is coming out in a few months. There’s been rumors and speculation – nothing confirmed – that Batman could die in this one. Do you think that’s too far for the character, or do you find that notion interesting?
West: To me, it’s an interesting idea because Batman – the character, the legend, the extension of it over all these years – it lends itself to different machinations, layers, different time zones – anything. You could really pretty much mold Batman. He’s malleable, welcome and always interesting. They [Christopher Nolan] do The Dark Knight, and I did The Bright Knight. Ours was fun for the whole family.
IGN: Are you a fan of Nolan’s darker series?
West: Yes! Absolutely. I’m a fan of anything that’s good, especially when it’s conscientiously good.
IGN: Any kind of Dark Knight Rises cameo appearance?
West: [laughing] I’d love to play Batman, and come in one night, flying in through the library window on the wings of a bat, or something. Right when Batman is totally overwhelmed with terrible things happening in Gotham City, and give him some advice. Either as a real character or fantasy character – whatever!
