Re: 60s Batman show rights issues resolved!

Batman and Robin is a great movie for small kids, big bright and like having a mouthful of blue smarties. My little cousin loves it and she and I will often throw random Arnie quotes at each other. Unlike the West show it doesn't have that adult crossover appeal (what makes it work is everyone in the West series plays it straight- most could have done the roles in a "Serious" Batman show- whilst in And Robin they're all winking at the camera and trying too hard to be knowingly camp) but I think it's a testament to the character he can do the high camp of West and Shumacher and the dark and gritty Nolan films and do both well.

I can't really imagine a Superman film working in either style, Bats is just more versatile for whatever reason.
