Aging superheroes in costume

Post by Progress Pigment » Sun Sep 23, 2018 12:31 am

I may be in the minority, but I love seeing pics of tv & film superheroes appearing in costume years after their series ended. Please post any you have.

Iguana cowl Batman! I love it!

Hi,

After reading your post I immediately thought of the photo shoot Adam did for the 'Adam West Remembers Batman'. I believe it was 1996. Remarkable in that he wore the entire costume and he looked just fantastic.

If memory serves me correctly, I'm pretty sure Wally had a big hand in putting it together...

No doubt someone on the Board will be able to post the photo I'm referring to.

Take care,

Terry

Thanks Keith - that's the one!!
Not many superhero actors can look that fantastic in the original costume 30 years on!!! (Possible exception being Lynda Carter...)
Take care,
Terry

This is an interesting topic, but did you realize the Superman meets Lucy episode came during the run of the original "Adventures of Superman"? So not an aging superhero at this point, :lol:

:) Yeah. But Reeves never got there. "Lucy" might be the closest.
