The original Batman star Adam West, who played the caped crusader from 1966 – 1968, has said he thinks Ben Affleck will be really good in the role.

Speaking at Comic-Con West said of his successor, "My feeling is that Ben Affleck will be really good simply because he's a great talent, and I'd be very interested in seeing him in the role."

He also added a word of wisdom for Affleck, "Just make sure the costume works for you, Ben."

West also spoke about making his Batman TV series, "The best part was just the fun and the laughs when you read the material, and you could really feel it coming to life, scene by scene."
