West on the other hand played the titular character in the Batman television series from the year 1966 to 1968. The show consisted of three seasons with a total number of 120 episodes. He further voiced Batman in several different television projects.
The Family Guy actor passed away at the age of 88 in 2017.
According to TMZ, the supposed cameos will come from old archived footage. In other words, we won’t be seeing West and Reeve saying new dialogues or anything with the help of deep fake CGI.
The upcoming Flash movie won’t only be including cameos from West and Reeve but also reportedly feature Lynda Carter.
Lynda Carter played Wonder Woman and is among the original DC to pop up in the new feature film.
Carter acted as Wonder Woman on a television show of the same name. It ran from 1976 to 1979 and consisted of 59 episodes.
All things considered, these are just speculations. Nothing has been officially confirmed by Warner Bros as of yet.
