    How wonderful is this! The Hollywood Reporter revealed that:

    "The late Adam West will be honored Thursday night with a lighting of the iconic signal in Los Angeles, with Mayor Eric Garcetti and L.A. Police Department Chief Charlie Beck doing the honors. The public is invited to the event, which will take place at 9 p.m. at City Hall (200 N. Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90012). "


    The public is encouraged to wear their Batsuits. If you're in LA and don't go to this then turn in your geek badge.

    Normally going to that part of town at 9pm is not something you'd want to do, but I guess it should be ok just this one time.

    Fear not, there will be a lot of superheros there.

    Nice touch from the peeps in LA, hope somebody picks up the phone in Gotham.

    There will surely be better photos available soon, but for now...




    These were taken from a live feed from a local news helicopter that was covering the event. The symbol was projected onto City Hall.

    I was wondering how they were going to pull this off. Typically the Batsymbol reflects off the clouds which in real life it has to be next to impossible to pull off unless it's really freakin' cloudy and they have to be hanging really freakin' low. Which begs the question, what did Gotham do if it was a crystal clear night and they needed Batman?

    Man that is cool. I'm quite sure his headstone will have the logo on it as well. What a great send off.
