Why on Earth hasn't Nolan cast Adam West in either Batman Begins or The Dark Knight?

He could have played the Mayor, he could have played the judge the Joker murdered, he could have played the police commissioner offed by the Joker.

I mean, it's tradition!

Oh, and cast Burt Ward as Chief O'Hara.

Because his presence would be downright distracting and would take you out of the story.

Honestly, casting Batmanuel from the Tick as the mayor was pretty distracting to me. \:\)

Given the quality of Nolan's two Batman flicks, I'm not gonna find fault with him not sticking Adam West in a cameo somewhere.

CI-
West woulda been ideal for Schumacher Bats movie.

Weird, I never thought of him as Batmanuel. But I couldn't get the image out of my head that while he was off-screen he was taking off to a Mystical Island hidden somewhere in the Pacific to continue instructing Locke.

Yeah, but considering the ratings that show got, it's was probably you and six other people who were thinking that. \:\)
