Man Cave meets Bat Cave in this intense home theater experience. The design detail incorporates elements of Gotham City, Wayne Manor and the Bat Cave, and even has a sliding bookshelf which reveals a full-size Batmobile and escape tunnel.
This video pulls out all the stops for guest stars. It's a trailer for documentary The Batmobile, chronicling the history of one of the world's favorite cars.
If you're lucky enough to be at Comic Con, you can see every incarnation in person. Also, why are you online? Go enjoy SDCC.
The Tumbler Batmobile that appears in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy is going on the road to wow people in time for the release of The Dark Knight Rises, thus giving Americans the chance to pretend that they're Batman without engaging in the cosplay culture. The Batpod will also join the tour, but no word on whether Anne Hathaway will sit in the flying car with fans.
The Washington Post has landed an interview with the "Route 29 Batman," so called because he was pulled over on Maryland's Route 29 in his Lamborghini Batmobile last week on his way to visit hospitalized children.
Batman, real name Lenny B. Robinson, is a 48-year-old self-made businessman who recently sold a cleaning service he started as a teenager, and now spends much of his time brightening the days of sick children in local hospitals.
Robinson has been Batman since 2001, and makes hospital visits at least a couple of times a month, as well as visiting schools to talk about bullying. Sometimes his teenage son, Brandon, who first introduced him to Batman, will accompany him as Robin.
Robinson has invested a lot in his superhero identity, spending $5,000 on his costume, $25,000 a year on Batman toys and books for the kids he visits, and $250,000 on a real-life Batmobile that's currently in development.
"It feels like I have a responsibility that's beyond a normal person," he says, "And that responsibility is to be there for the kids, to be strong for them, and to make them smile as much as I can."
Batman was pulled over in the suburbs of Washington, DC by Montgomery County, MD police officers last week when the cops noticed that he didn't have proper tags on his modified Lamborghini Batmobile.
The Dark Knight -- secret identity Lenny B. Robinson -- was on his way to a local children's hospital, where he regularly visits sick kids, when officers noticed he only had the Bat-symbol where his license plates should be.
Fortunately, Batman had his real plates with him in the car, so he was able to get out of a ticket without even making a call to the commissioner.
It's the 1960s TV Batmobile -- sparkly gold accents and all -- versus the 1989 Tim Burton version. One's got more horses, but the other has rocket boosters in back. I don't want to spoil the ending, but it comes down to a photo finish.
So, who ya got?
