1960s The Dark Knight

I believe that the Batmen featured in The Dark Knight and the 1960s Batman tv series are two of the best interpretations of the character. Adam West’s campy ’60s Batman perfectly captures the goofy spirit of the silver age of comics and Christian Bale’s brooding Batman is a great adaptation of the Bat’s post-Frank Miller moodiness. Now, what if we combined the two takes on the character? We don’t have that answer yet, but we do have the 1966 Batman tv show opening recreated in the spirit of The Dark Knight. Happy Dragon Pictures created this fun update on the old Batman intro full of references to Christopher Nolan’s current Bat-trilogy.
