Batman '66 vs. Two-Face animated movie

Adam West's final performance as Batman Really looking forward to this, Shatner is great casting, and I like seeing villains originally absent from the 1966 series getting introduced to that world.

Oh hey, Hugo Strange is there too; always like seeing him getting attention.

Looks like Harley's his lab assistant.
I love the casting of Shatner - a contemporary from the same era - as Two-Face but the design just feels very not sixties live action, if that makes sense. Feels too flat and not flamboyant enough. Same goes for Strange. That doesn't mean this doesn't seem like a really fun romp, but the designs and tone don't quite match the '66 feel for me.

True enough, and I can't gush enough about the choice in who to play Two-Face. Seriously, that's some inspired casting and I could easily see Shatner actually playing Dent on the TV series during that era. It also seems like Shatner stays away from his Boston Legal persona in the scene we see with Harvey, which is good.

That was one of my aforementioned quibbles with "Return of the Caped Crusaders", and with the DC DTV movies in general. They're taking inspiration from a 60's TV show with garishly bright colors, or various famous comic arcs, and somehow it all gets flattened to the point where all these movies have the same look and feel to them. Taking a few pages from the "Brave and the Bold" style guides would have helped.
