Benjamin Melniker has died

In cinema, Batman has always been subject to change.
 Even amidst all that change, though, two names have been a constant with cinematic Batman: Michael Uslan and Benjamin Melniker.  Going back to Tim Burton’s landmark 1989 Batman film, the duo’s names have been listed in some sort of producing role on pretty much every Batman film ever since.  Sadly, Uslan announced on Facebook today that Melniker has died.
He was 104.

Jake Gyllenhaal as Batman?

Rumors have resurfaced suggesting that Nightcrawler star Jake Gyllenhaal is set to take over the role of Batman in the near future. Ben Affleck took over as the Caped Crusader after Christian Bale’s lauded turn in the Christopher Nolan trilogy, and many fans never warmed to him. Affleck already has three films as Batman / Bruce Wayne under his utility belt – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and most recently Justice League – but studio execs are said to have gone sour on him and are looking for a replacement.

Man Spends Two Years Building Iconic 1989 Burton Batmobile

A REAL-LIFE superhero has turned down six-figure offers for his home-made 1989 Batmobile for hire - so he can continue helping sick children. Batman fanatic Zac Mihajlovic, from Camden, Australia, hand-built his very own street legal version of the car from the 1989 film starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson. And the car has whipped up a reaction wherever it has been seen. Businessmen from across the world, including a Sheik in Dubai, have offered Zac big bucks for the Batmobile. But rather than cash-in on his dream machine, Zac decided to use his powers for good by teaming up with Make-A-Wish Australia, who make dream’s come true for terminally-ill children.
