Powerless: DC Honors Adam West By Releasing Unaired Episode (WATCH NOW)

In honor of the passing of the man would always be known as Batman and in response to a growing number of online requests, DC Entertainment has released the unaired episode of NBC’s Powerless featuring a guest appearance by the late Adam West. The episode would turn out to be one of his last projects, as the beloved actor passed away on Friday, June 9 at age 88.

Powerless: DC Honors Adam West Unaired Episode

In Win, Luther, Draw, West guest stars as Chairman of Wayne Industries Dean West, who visits Charm City to deliver devastating news to Wayne Security: the division is going to be sold to their corporate rival LexCorp. Particularly touching in a humorous way is the moment when after West has made his announcement, he turns towards the viewer and asks us in classic 1966 Batman style: “Will this rag-tag band of plucky performers keep their precious positions, or will they be thrown to the wolves? Find out next week!”

Located in the DC Universe, Powerless follows the adventures of Emily Locke (Vanessa HudgensSucker Punch), new to Charm City as she assumes her new position as Director of Research & Development at Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in new inventions to protect ordinary citizens from the battles between superheroes and supervillains. With the help of office mates Teddy (Danny PudiCommunity), Ron (Ron FunchesUndateable) and Jackie (Christina KirkManhattan), Emily looks to turn Wayne Security into a huge Wayne Enterprises success…even if she has to drag her painfully inept boss Van Wayne (Alan TudykFirefly) the entire way.
