Adam West talks ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

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!
