London: Adam West, who played Batman in the 1966 hit TV series of the same name, says he is excited to watch Ben Affleck don the superhero role in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.

West, 85, who also starred in 1966 original 'Batman', finds the 41-year-old 'Argo' star highly talented and feels he will suit the role of the Batman, reported Contactmusic.

"My feeling is that Ben Affleck will be really good simply because he's a great talent, and I'd be very interested in seeing him in the role," he said.

The veteran actor also had a suggestion for Affleck for his performance in the film. "Just make sure the costume works for you, Ben," he said.

West talked about his own 'fun' experience while working on the television series.

"The best part was just the fun and the laughs when you read the material, and you could really feel it coming to life, scene by scene," the 'first' Batman said.
