Attention nerds, Wizard World Miami Comic Con is coming to Miami Airport Convention Center this weekend. For fans of sci-fi television and film, Comic Con is an opportunity to step out of the proverbial nerd closet and openly embrace your inner-nerd. The headliner, Adam West, the actor who played Batman in the 60s television series, will be there Saturday and Sunday for photo ops and autographs. Hell be joined by Burt Ward, who played his sidekick Robin, Billy Dee Williams from Star Wars, and five actors from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to name just a few. Youll even have the chance to take a picture with Wests Batmobile and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. Well pause while you catch your geeky breath.
West is no stranger to conventions, admitting that they all tend to blur together. But at 82 years young, the iconic actor shows no signs of slowing down. Older fans remember him as the caped crusader, while younger audiences identify him as Mayor West on Family Guy. I keep reinventing myself like Madonna, he says. The Adam West/Mayor West character is so nutty, I think people just want to see if hes real. Find out for yourself whether or not Mayor West is anything like the real West beginning on Saturday at 10 a.m.
