Batman is branching out this fall in crossovers with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the (TV) Avengers, and now he's going up against The Man From U.N.C.L.E. In December, DC will launch the six-issue Batman '66 Meets The Man From U.N.C.L.E., pitting the two 1960s-era properties against one another.
However, whether the crossover will more reflect the 'continuity' and likenesses of the classic 1964 to 1968 TV show (ala The Avengers), or Warner Bros.' recent theatrical update/adaptation starring Henry Cavill (Superman), or either, remains to be seen. DC declined to comment on the topic.
