If Bruce Wayne Ever Went Broke, This Will Probably Be His Crimefighting Ride

Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman, always gets the best gadgets and rides money can buy, and therefore, to think that the billionaire masked crimefighter will use a Toyota Camry as his ride of choice when he go about kicking baddies’ ass is nothing less than absurd. Seriously, Joker will probably die laughing. However, if he ever go broke, who knows he may resort to converting a lacklustre ride into his Batmobile like what this Imgur user did. But, of course, knowing the Bat, he will probably tricked out the drivetrain to maybe include jet engine(s) and the requisite afterburner(s), along with Bat-ish not-so-aero aero kit and a bunch of seemingly just-for-show bits. And how can we forget the Batman’s favorite color, black for the paint job, eh? Continue reading If Bruce Wayne Ever Went Broke, This Will Probably Be His Crimefighting Ride

Guy Built Christopher Nolan’s Batmobile ‘Tumbler’ Out Of A Minivan

Thinking of getting rid of your rusty, old minivan? Well, don’t. Not at least until you have read this. What you see here is the modern day pop culture, the Batmobile, AKA Tumbler, made famous by Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, DIY-ed entirely in the garage. Granted, this is a rather crude contraption, but you’d be impressed if you know that it actually has a minivan underpinning. Yes. That’s right. This is in fact a bat-minivan, or batvan, if you will. Cobbled by Instructables member Kid Hero who we’d hailed as a real-life superhero for making minivan great again. It may not look exactly like the movies’, it does look reasonably decent.

Infographic: The Evolution Of Some Of The Most Iconic Superhero Vehicles

Thanks to Marvel Cinematic Universal, the interest for comic book superheroes has never been higher and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon – more so now that the two comic book powerhouses are fiercely vying for a chunk of the lucrative movie pie. Annual sale of literatures like comic books, trade paperbacks and magazines have definitely been in a decline up till the late 90s – due to financial woes and changing distribution method. However, there was a graduate increase in the beginning of 00s’ which was clearly a positive side effect of the various movie adaptations hitting the theaters and also the improve distributions in the digital media age.

Tirrenia Launches DC Superheroes-themed Ships, Starting With Batman

It is unlikely that Batman will announce his presence on a mass transportation system such as a ship and surely, billionaire Bruce Wayne won’t either, but for fans of this fictional crimefighting cape superhero/brilliant detective, it will be perfectly fine to be cruising on a classic Batman themed big-ass ferry like the Italy-based Tirrenia ship’s Sharden. In a partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and obviously, DC Entertainment, Tirrenia has begun decorating the sides of DC superheroes-themed Tirrenia ships. Work started earlier this year when Tirrenia’s ship, Sharden, had its sides painted with the classic Batman graphics.

What you see here is a RC Batmobile from toy maker Mattel. So what’s with this RC toy that gets us so stoked?

1/6th Scale Robotic Batman In Off-White Is Kind Of Steampunk-ish

The world as it is, is facing a shit load of threats. Socially, the general population is frowning upon the prospect of robots taking over their livelihood and if that’s true, could this real-world fate apply to the world of comic?

This Is The Bat Creature That Supposed To Appear In Batman V Superman

One of the most memorable scene from Batman v Superman would be that of Bruce Wayne’s nightmare. I guess the decryption processing was so freaking darn slow that not only did the Bat fell asleep (I have no idea that he even sleep at all) but also induced a nightmare. If you think that the dystopia Mad Max-like nightmare setting plus the fact that Batman kills made zero sense, then you will be thankful it wasn’t made worst by something totally out-of-this-world: a bat creature. Wait, what? A bat creature? Well, apparently, yes. According to Batman v Superman production designer Patrick Tatopoulos who have shared a concept art (on Instagram) of a hideous creature that supposed to be part of the Dark Knight’s nightmare.

Batman Meets Steampunk And Awesomeness Ensues

Considering how dark Batman’s comics, cartoons and movies are, I think it is only fitting that this world’s famous, fictional caped crime fighter receive his fair share of steampunk treatment and steampunk treatment it did get, courtesy of Olivier Xavier. Little is known about this awesome creation, but according to the man himself, this Victorian-age cape crusader’s ride was scratch built for his son’s fan film and that was it. No build details, no words on when the fan film will be out and if we will be able to catch it. Regardless, we have a feeling that it is going to be an awesome work of art too. I mean, seriously, a Victorian Batman? That’s clearly beyond awesome. Continue reading Batman Meets Steampunk And Awesomeness Ensues
