DC Entertainment has released the unaired Powerless TV series finale, which NBC cancelled when it pulled the sitcom from its schedule, back in April. “Win, Luthor, Draw” features a cameo by the late Adam West, who played the first live-action Batman and Bruce Wayne in ABC’s 1966-68 Batman TV series, opposite Burt Ward’s Robin/Dick Grayson. Fans had been asking the network to air it as a tribute to West. Instead, DC answered the Bat-Signal, while the Peacock Network ignored it. Watch the entire episode, below.
A comedy set in the DC Comics Universe, Powerless follows spunky Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens), the new Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security. The Wayne Enterprises subsidiary specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer in a city full of super-heroes and super-villains. Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi, Ron Funches, and Christina Kirk also star.
West, who died on June 9, 2017, from complications of leukemia, narrated early episodes of the cancelled NBC TV show. In “Win, Luthor, Draw,” though, he played Wayne Industries Chairman Dean West. Check out the NBC episode description.
