Adam West played the role of a voiceover on early episodes of NBC's Powerless. But in the season finale, he was to appear as Dean West, chairman of Wayne Industries.
Following an attack on Gotham City, Wayne Industries had to make some cuts and Mr. West was to visit Charm City to deliver the bad news to Van and Emily. When the news was made public, executive producers Patrick Schumacker and Justin Halpern said, "Powerless is billed as DC's first comedy, but we'll always view Mr. West as the founding father of comedy in the DC Universe, thanks to his work in the original Batman television series. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a living legend."
However, the show was cancelled before the final episode aired.
In the wake of Adam West's passing yesterday, there were memories from those who worked with him on that episode.
There have been calls for NBC to release his final role, on TV or online.
Although some folk have managed to see the episode in question…
Will that opportunity be shared… further?
