Post-Batman career

Typecasting

After his high profile role in Batman, West, Burt Ward and Yvonne Craig (who played crimefighting sidekicks Robin and Batgirl respectively) were badly typecast in their roles. West's first post-Caped Crusader role was in the 1969 release The Girl Who Knew Too Much. He played against type as a tough, hard-boiled assassin. The movie was a failure and has almost become a lost film. Burt Ward (born Bert John Gervis, Jr. ... ‹ The template below (Expand) is being considered for deletion. ...

For a time, West was forced to make a living entirely doing personal appearances as Batman. In 1972 however, when Burt Ward and Yvonne Craig reprised their Batman roles for a TV public service announcement about equal pay for women, West was absent. Instead, Dick Gautier filled-in for West as Batman. See also: 1971 in television, other events of 1972, 1973 in television and the list of years in television.

His typecasting, however, always brought these to naught.

Self-parody is parody of oneself or ones own work. ...


Return to the Batman role

During this period, West often played the voice of Batman, first in the short-lived animated series, The New Adventures of Batman, and in other shows like Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show, The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians. In 1979, West once again put on the Batsuit for the live-action TV special, Legends of the Superheroes.[4] The New Adventures of Batman is an animated series produced by Filmation in 1977 featuring the DC Comics superheroes Batman and Robin, and occasionally Batgirl. ...

Instead, West ironically voiced the part of a washed-up actor who used to play a superhero in a TV series called "The Gray Ghost" and who, now typecast as the Gray Ghost, has difficulty finding work.
