Bat-Signal lights up Los Angeles in tribute to Adam West

After the tribute finished, the words "The City of Los Angeles Honours Adam West 1928-2017" were projected underneath the Bat- signal.

The ceremony honored Adam West, who played the Caped Crusader in the campy 1960s TV series.

Before the people of Gotham called on Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale or Ben Affleck for growly, rubber-nippled, pointy-eared salvation, there was Adam West.

While nothing has been altogether confirmed when it comes to the future of Family Guy, including if West had recorded more episodes prior to his death, the show will likely create some sort of further tribute down the road. And by Gotham, we mean Los Angeles.

For those unaware, the world said goodbye to Adam West on Saturday after a brief run-in with leukemia.

"Adam West taught us each one of us had a heart of gold", Garcetti said.

LA Police Chief Charles Beck also took part in the tribute along with some special guests. The city will shine a bat-signal in the sky on Thursday beginning at 9 p.m. local time. "There will never be another Batman like Adam West and there will be never be another Adam West".

Warner Bros. has confirmed that West completed his voice recordings for the new film, which features fellow 1960s TV star William Shatner in the role of Two-Face (a villain who was never actually seen in the original show). In stark contrast to latter day depictions of Batman, West's version of the Detective Comics star was a colorful, optimistic figure that earned him the nickname, "Bright Knight". You know who else is celebrating his life?

After serving in the Army, he went to Hollywood and changed his name to Adam West, and began appearing on a number of television series, including "Bonanza", "Perry Mason" and "Bewitched". That show has announced they will be honoring the actor with a tribute on Sunday.

Justin Harrison, 43, wore a Batman costume and said West was not only an actor but someone who "inspired millions".
