Word broke earlier this year that 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. had negotiated a deal regarding licensing of the 1960’s “Batman” television show. Today, the latest issue of License! Global confirms that the first wave of merchandise will hit in 2013.

“The 1960’s Classic Batman TV Series line,” the magazine reports, “which will be released next year, is based on the original television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward.”

“Batman” aired for three seasons on ABC between 1966 and 1968 and featured returning talent like Cesar Romero, Frank Gorshin, Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt.

Due to legal complications, “Batman” has never been available on DVD but with news of a toy line on the way, it’s likely we’ll be seeing the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder finally hit the format sometime next year.

I'm a BIG Batman fan. Back in the day I would write scripts and get my friends together to make Batman movies. From real Batman suits to a wide collection of Batman stuff from over the years I have never have grown up when it comes to Batman. I go to Comic cons and dress up in full Batman (Nashville's Dark Knight) gear and hang out with fellow comic fans and take pictures. Hanging out with friends is always a blasty blast when they can find the time or when I can. I'm a big movie buff or at least a little buff lol. I love the extreme activities. White water rafting, playing paintball, just about anything I can get into. I have been in a few different kinds of Martial arts. Sometimes I go hunting on the family farm but its rare. When I lived in Bell Buckle I was on the BBVFD for about 5 years --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
