Bat-Signal to shine over Los Angeles in tribute to Adam West

18 Juin 2017

While he is traditionally considered the protector of Gotham City, Batman is being called to LA this evening as the iconic bat-signal will be projected in tribute to the late Adam West.

Taking its cues from the Gotham City Police Force, Los Angeles paid tribute to the late Adam West on Thursday night by shining the "Bat-signal" onto City Hall in tribute to the star of the 60s TV version of Batman.

Actor Burt Ward who played Robin alongside West's Batman also paid tribute to the late actor saying the two enjoyed "an awesome friendship".

While nothing has been altogether confirmed when it comes to the future of Family Guy, including if West had recorded more episodes prior to his death, the show will likely create some sort of further tribute down the road.

West was reportedly cast as the billionaire superhero after producer William Dozier noticed him playing a Bond-like character in a Nestle Quik TV commercial.

West will play his iconic Batman role one last time in the animated film Batman vs. Two-Face, set to be released later this year.

What's worked best for us is how we haven't been reliant on just our batting, bowling or fielding prowess but all three combined. India shall be going into the match as the favorites both on form and the quality of players they have at their disposal.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, who led the ceremony, were joined onstage by Burt Ward, the Robin to West's Batman.

While the Bat-Signal wasn't invented in West's TV show - it first appeared in the pages of Detective Comics #60 in 1942 - the phenomenon of the show helped solidify key aspects of Batman's lore, including the Batcave, Batmobile, and, uh, Bat-Shark Repellant.

West died last Friday at the age of 88 after suffering from leukaemia.

Adam West attends a "Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" event at New York Comic-Con on October 6, 2016 in New York City. MacFarlane also said he was privileged to have worked with West. Adam and I had a special friendship for more than 50 years.

Online, many posts flashed images of the Batman logo and the hashtag #AdamWestTribute.
