Among the many reactions to Adam West’s death pouring out from Hollywood, only one immediately hit social media from an actor who has also worn the Bat-cowl.

Ben Affleck, tweeted about the Bat legend (see below). Affleck starred as the Caped Crusader in last year’s Batman V. Superman, and will return as Batman in Justice League, which is out Nov. 17.

Thank you for showing us all how it’s done.”
