Batman Returns! To television! Sort of! Adam West is coming back to NBC’s Powerless, and this time he’s not just lending his voice. West portrayed the Caped Crusader in the classic Batman '66 television series, ZAP! POW! and BANG!ing his way through his rogues and their countless goons. Now he’ll be portraying a new character on Powerless in an upcoming episode.
West previously narrated a commercial for Wayne Securities on the show, the company where the characters work. But now he’ll be returning to the series in a larger capacity in a character that will have to deliver some bad news to the cast.
In the show, some mayhem and destruction in Gotham City will force parent company Wayne Industries to make hard cuts for the future of the company. And that’s when chairman of Wayne Industries Dean West will come to town to deliver some bad news to their subsidiary in Charm City.
No word yet on which episode West will appear in, but it should be coming up pretty soon.
The next episode, "Cold Season," premieres this Thursday at 8:30pm EST on NBC.
EMILY'S BRIGHT IDEA MAY SEND TEDDY INTO A TAILSPIN - Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) convinces Teddy (Danny Pudi) to enter what she thinks is a game-changing invention into the Wayne Innovation contest against the elitist engineers of Wayne X, even though he has his doubts.

Jennie Pierson recurs.
