Bat-Signal at LA City Hall honors Adam West

Tonight, something pretty cool is going to be happening at Los Angeles City Hall - or should we say, Gotham City Hall?

City officials in Los Angeles made a decision to pay touching homage to "Batman" actor Adam West by projecting the Bat-signal onto the tower of city hall Thursday night.

Adam West's Batman co-stars Burt Ward and Julie Newmar also expressed their grief over his demise.

Mayor Eric Garcetti, addressing the "citizens of Gotham", said "legendary" West outshone other Batman actors such as George Clooney, Christian Bale and Ben Affleck.

West went on to provide the voice of Quahog mayor Adam West in the television series "Family Guy". The iconic bat signal was splayed across the LA City Hall tower at 9 p.m. PT.

"There will never be a Batman like Adam West and there will never be another Adam West".

Fans gather around a Batmobile before a tribute to "Batman" star Adam West that includes lighting a Bat-signal at City Hall on Thursday, June 15, 2017, in Los Angeles.

With a career that spanned five decades and the iconic role of Batman under his belt, the actor has always been remembered primarily for his time as the Caped Crusader, even as he moved on to other roles such as playing the mayor of Quahog in Family Guy.

Adam West attends a "Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" event at New York Comic-Con on October 6, 2016 in New York City.

There's absolutely no doubt that Adam West was a hero to many - onscreen and off.

LA Police Chief Charles Beck also took part in the tribute along with some special guests.

Best known for his role in the campy TV show, the 88-year-old West passed away last Friday after a short battle with leukaemia. The actor was mostly involved in animated television shows, where he played satirical versions of himself.

Ward said: "He was a great family man, a wonderful husband, a wonderful father to his kids, he loved humanity and he loved his fans".
