The late Adam West will be heard in a number of projects to come, but perhaps no gig was so permanently affected as the former Batman star’s Family Guy role as Quahog’s mayor. Now, FOX pays tribute to our beloved “Bright Knight” with an extended reel of West’s wacky politician.
Just as NBC’s Powerless carried on the late Adam West’s inimitable presence, so too will Family Guy keep our beloved Bright Knight alive. Producers confirm West recorded at least five more episodes for the coming season, after which Quahog’s mayor may never be replaced.
The Adam West tributes keep on rolling. Following a Bat-Signal over Los Angeles and word that the late Batman star will reprise his role in animation, DC has stepped up to release an un-aired episode of NBC’s Powerless featuring our beloved “Bright Knight.”
The world has literally lit up with Adam West tributes since the Batman star’s tragic passing over the weekend, and we’ll have at least one more chance to honor the staccato “Bright Knight.” Sources confirm West had completed recording vocals for an animated sequel to Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.
In the most fitting tribute imaginable, the Bat-Signal lit up the skies of Los Angeles last night, in honor of the late Adam West, the first Batman of television, and one of the most beloved versions of the iconic Dark Knight (or the “Bright Knight,” as West liked to describe his more upbeat version of the character). West died of leukemia late last week; he was 88 years old.
