Do you know what we have a hard time believing? That Adam West will have a cameo in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. But that's just what the internet is saying today. Actually, let's give the internet some credit this time. Even the internet is expressing some doubts, partly because of the rumor's source.

Quoth Floss Magazine's Twitter: "Hollywood big wigs confirmed actor Adam West(Batman on the TV series) will make a cameo on "The Dark Knight Rises" set to open July 20, 2012"


CinemaBlend brought the rumor to our attention. They don't believe it either. Christopher Nolan has avoided cutesy crap like this until now, and it seems unlikely that he's going to start now. Of course, we love Adam West. He's a funny guy on both the original Batman television series and his popular recurring stint on Family Guy. But it's hard to imagine him performing any kind of cameo in The Dark Knight Rises that wouldn't be distracting as hell and take the audience out of the immersive, wink-free world that Christopher Nolan has created in his Batman movies.

If this rumor gets confirmed or denied, we'll be right on top of that… but put your money on "denied."
