Not long ago, it was announced that the next Batman movie was going to be an animated version of the famous Batman alternate-history comic, Gotham by Gaslight. The basic conceit of this comic was to place Batman in 1889 London, where he’d be in pursuit of Jack the Ripper. As far as I can tell, there was no Batmobile…
It won’t hit theaters until November, but well ahead of Justice League’s theatrical release, Lego has released details for some of the first sets tied to DC Comics’ next superhero-filled Avengers challenger, revealing a few of the film’s baddies, and more of Batman’s wonderful toys.
More than any other superhero, Batman is known for his car. In fact, he’s one of the few major superheroes to even have a car worth a damn, anyway. I think I once saw Superman parking a Geo Prizm. That’s why the Batmobile is so important, and why there’ve been so many of the things.
Entertainment Weekly has the first shots of two upcoming sets for the Lego Batman movie that’s due to hit theaters next year. Yesterday we got our first look at the movie’s minifig versions of Robin and the Joker, but these sets reveal other characters that will be appearing in the film, plus Batman’s latest ride.
A couple of months ago Lego revealed its sprawling Batcave set based on the ‘60s Batman TV series. And as packed full of details as it was, it can’t hold a candle to Dan Glasure’s custom creation that took two months to build and incorporates elements from almost all of the Batman movies, comics, and TV series.
One of the best things about Batman as a superhero is that he actually has a need for a car. Superman just doesn’t need one, Spider-Man is too broke, Aquaman has the wrong address, Wonder Woman has that invisible jet, and on and on. Batman is unique in his need for a Batmobile, which is why it’s such a shame so many…
When buying luggage you shouldn’t choose based on what looks nicest, you should choose bags that are going to stand out on that airport baggage carousel. And when was the last time you saw a miniature Batmobile circling the carousel after a flight? It’s just too bad this suitcase is only designed for kids.
The star of any Batman movie isn’t the caped crusader, or the over-the-top villain he’s trying to defeat. It’s the Batmobile. The Dark Knight’s ride has seen countless design changes over the years, but it’s always been packed full of wonderful features that always make it the real star of the show.
There should be no surprises that Hot Toys will be turning their uncannily details eyes towards Batman v Superman ahead of its release next year. But the company have started lifting the lid on their plans for the movie, and said plans include a rather massive, and rather swanky, Batmobile toy to stuff the Dark Knight…
The most iconic custom car builder of the most iconic custom cars to grace a TV screen, George Barris, is reportedly dead.
Tearing through your town in a full-size replica of the tank-like Batmobile that Batman drives in the Arkham Knight game is sure to get you pulled over in no time. But a smaller go-kart version of that same Batmobile? Your local police might just ask to take it for a spin.
What’s your favorite Batmobile? They all have their own charm, don’t they? The Tumbler was brute force bicep flexing whilst kissing bad ass. The 60’s Batmobile was fanciful and fun and totally goofy but cool in all the right ways. But my favorite is probably the Batmobile from the Tim Burton movies. It’s slick and…
Do cold floors and stubbed toes have you purposely avoiding middle-of-the-night trips to the bathroom? With a pair of Batmobile slippers on your feet, you’ve got nothing to fear except your friends being jealous of how cool you look.
Batman’s vehicle of choice has had a lot of different looks over the 75 years it’s been around—but an ongoing legal case over unlicensed replicas based on the 1966 and 1989 versions of the Batmobile called into question whether DC had the right to copyright the car. Turns out, despite the myriad redesigns, they do.
Every year across the globe Red Bull holds various events requiring competitors to build and race their own contraptions. This weekend in the UK the Red Bull Soapbox Race will get under way, but why bother even holding the event when this team that built a giant version of the Lego Batmobile has already clearly won?
Batman’s chosen mode of transport has evolved a lot over the years. From swanky car to Tumbler, and even armored tanks. But with a new, heavily armored Batman in town in DC’s Batman comics, there needs to be a new Batmobile to match—and it looks completely, hilariously over the top. Bat-Truck, indeed.
We’ve already gotten a few glimpses of the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Batmobile, courtesy of the teaser trailer and the 2015 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas earlier this month. But now we’ve got an even better look at Bruce’s ride thanks to an upcoming Lego set revealed by the Wall Street Journal.
The 2015 Licensing Expo just got under way in Las Vegas today, giving us our first good look at the redesigned Batmobile that Ben Affleck will be driving in the upcoming 2016 blockbuster, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
