Considering how expensive the set is I guess it involved a whole lot of money.

Who cares? The point is it's happening.

I've already begun saving.

The same process that made The Hobbit possible. Both sides realize they have more to gain by sharing the property than stonewalling forever and nothing happening.

Are you sure streaming is more profitable? The record companies always seem to bemoan the rise of streaming and the decline in CD sales.
Sure -- in many cases with streaming, you don't even own the movie, just a license to stream it for a while. License runs out? Guess what, tough rocks, you have to buy / rent it again.

I wonder if there wasn't a point of diminishing returns as well. How long will Batman be a hot commodity? 10/20 years from now will it still be as in demand?

Just pre-ordered this Blu-ray set. Will arrive in time to be a shared Christmas gift for my son and me (we've been reading the Batman '66 digital comic series and he loves them, so this will make for good father/son viewing).

I really want this collection but the deal breaker for me will be if the set are original run episodes or syndicated edits.

That comic is fantastic.

And I pre-order the Blu-Ray collection as well.

Yeah, they need to release some details on the set.

Well since they are making an HD version of the show, I'm assuming that they are using the original camera negatives (or as close to original as possible), not the 50 year old SD film masters. So they'll probably be the 60's network versions.

Assuming the camera negatives weren't chopped up to make the syndication versions. That's what happened to I Love Lucy, although thankfully a few 16mm prints were discovered of the missing footage.

Fingers crossed, though.

This is great news and I will definitely be getting it-- sooner or later, depending on the cost.

I bailed on mainstream comics during Civil War. What is Batman '66?

It's a weekly digital comic that is set in the TV show's continuity. You can easily imagine them as comprehensive storyboards for unaired episodes. Hell, whenever Joker appears, he's drawn so much like Cesar Romero that the artists even include the moustache he refused to shave under the face paint. If you're a fan of the show, you cannot help being a fan of the comic. There is also a monthly digital comic of Batman '66 teaming up with The Green Hornet, done in the same way.

I was irked with the storyline where Batman and Robin went to London. Everyone knows it's Londinium.

I'm a little bothered by the '66 comic's inclusion of more modern characters and elements like a proto-Harley Quinn. I'd rather see something that feels more like what could've been unaired episodes, authentic to the '60s context. But I suppose it makes sense to try to give the comic appeal to modern comics fans as well as fans of the show, and to try to imagine how more modern characters might have been interpreted in the B'66 milieu.

Really, what I'd like to see is an origin story for the '66 version of Batman. It would be tricky to do well, and it'd have to be rather different from the way the origin is usually told today, but if done right, it could be cool to see a '66 version of how Bruce Wayne became Batman, how he acquired Dick/Robin as his ward and sidekick, how he began his relationship with the Gotham PD and won Commissioner Gordon's undying admiration, and who the first villain he confronted was.
