After lending his voice to Powerless, an iconic Batman actor is stepping in front of the camera for a visit to Charm City.

Adam West, who played the Caped Crusader on the 1960s Batman series, will guest-star in an upcoming episode of the freshman DC Comics-themed comedy, EW has exclusively learned. However, this won’t be the first time West has worked on the show since he narrated the Wayne Security commercial in the pilot.

West will play Dean West, chairman of Wayne Industries. Following an attack on Gotham City, Wayne Industries has to make some cuts, and Mr. West visits Charm City to deliver the bad news to Van (Alan Tudyk) and Emily (Vanessa Hudgens).

West hasn’t been shy about returning to Batman-related roles since the beloved Batman series ended in 1968. He voiced characters on Batman: The Animated Series and Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and in 2016, he and his Batman­ costars Burt Ward and Julie Newmar reprised their roles of Batman, Robin, and Catwoman in the animated movie Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. His other TV credits include The Big Bang Theory, Family Guy, and Moonbeam City.

Powerless airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
