The trio starred in the 1960s television story with West starring as Batman, Ward as Robin, and Newmar as the villainous Catwoman.

Entertainment Weekly premiered the trailer for the movie Tuesday.

West celebrated by retweeting Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s tweet about the trailer and adding “I’m back!”

“Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” will be released for Digital HD on October 11 and Blu-Ray on November 1.
