Besides “Batman the Movie” The Campy Adam West version of Batman has not been available on DVD or Blur-ray due to Fox owning the rights to the show and WB owning the rights to the character Batman. But now there may be hope! WB has cut a deal with Fox to licensee the rights to the campy version of the characters.
For the first time in 40 years, Warner Bros. Consumer Products will be able to use the likeness of the show’s stars, including Adam West, Burt Ward, Cesar Romero and Burgess Meredith, on everything from apparel to toys, home goods, publishing and promotions.
WBCP will introduce the new “Batman” product opportunities to potential partners and retailers at next week’s Licensing Expo, running June 12-14 in Las Vegas. First products will launch in the spring.
