SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Salt Lake Comic Con (SLCC) today announced that William Shatner and Adam West will take the stage together for the first time in more than 50 years and for the first time in Comic Con history for a Legends Live event.

Shatner and West began their careers together in 1963. Soon after, Shatner took the role as Captain Kirk on the Star Trek and West took the role as Batman. The rest is history. Their paths have crossed over the years but the two have never appeared on stage together since. Until now!

"This could literally be a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans and an event nobody will want to miss."
Shatner played many roles as Kirk, including Star Trek: The Animated Series and the Star Trek feature films.
