Adam West, TV's Batman, Passes Away
I didn't grow up watching Adam West's Batman on TV, but I always felt the reach the show had. It introduced Batman to many people, both here and internationally. It was only when I was older that I saw the show and, of course, it wasn't my Batman. My Batman was dark and brooding and Adam West was anything but. However, his Batman was just as necessary and just as iconic. Today we all learned that the great Adam West passed away at the age of 88. Fans and celebrities alike expressed their condolences across social media.
Grateful and never bitter, the actor once explained that while he loved the fans and his time on the show, he believed there was many a part that he audtioned for that went elsewhere because he was typecast. In his later years he ended up as a reccuring character on the hit aniamted comedy Family Guy. Even into his eighties, Adam West had the gift of gab, and, according to creator and showrunner Seth MacFarlane, he "knew comedy". Through his comedy, we all felt like we knew a little bit of Adam. Thank you for everything you did, Adam.
He passed away at the age of 95, Lee’s daughter, J.C. Lee told TMZ, at Cedars-Sanai Medical Center on Monday, November 12th, 2018. His wife of 70 years passed away in 2017, and even through rumors of elder abuse by those around him, he continued to be a beacon to fans around the globe.

Bumblebee & Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse receive trailers from their respective studios.
We need our black leading men and women to shine and if their movies don’t make money, they don’t get roles in the future, so take this L. Yea, I know. Still though.
In the case of Deadpool 2, the raunchy jokes, physical humor, movie references and Reynolds’ charm were all on display, but it still felt a little like someone else following a paraphrased recipe, hoping to capture the magic of the original chef and dish.
Get Out's Jordan Peele and Jason Blum are Lee's partners on the film, so look out for something interesting.
Her pioneering work as a woman in show business and her place in superhero fandom will live on. She will be missed.
On every level, this movie satisfies. Top notch action sequences, levity and emotional heft can all be found here. After Killmonger, and now with Thanos, it may be safe to say that Marvel's figured out its villain problem.
