@Batman89 Anniversary Posting

#Batfleck #BatmanvsSuperman trailer @ComicCon !

 We’re still two years away from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but next month’s San Diego Comic-Con has the potential to be very interesting for Batman fans. We’ve already heard that Warner Bros. is planning to announce their DC movie roadmap and perhaps even the cast of the Justice League movie. According to a new rumor from Latino Review’s Umberto “El Mayimbe” Gonzalez, Warner Bros. may even be ready to show off the first footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Happy Anniversary Burton's #Batman

Rare Tim Burton's Batman Trailer 

 In order to combat negative rumors about the production, a theatrical trailer was hastily assembled to be distributed to theaters. To test its effectiveness, Warner Bros. executives showed it at a theater in Westwood, California to an unsuspecting audience. The ninety-second trailer received a standing ovation. Later, it would become a popular bootleg at comic book conventions, and theater owners would report patrons paying full price for movie tickets just to have an opportunity to see the trailer, and leaving before the feature began.

New #Batman Flick in 2019 ?!?

As Warner Bros. and DC ramp up their superheroic output as part of their answer to Marvel’s domination of the genre in cinemas, we have some confirmed movies – such as the in-production Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and the planned Justice League follow up, plus a rumoured future schedule. Another possibility has emerged from Latino Review’s sources, with whispers that Ben Affleck’s Batman will appear in his own stand-alone film, working titled The Batman.
Naturally, none of this has been confirmed by the studio, so you may file it firmly in the Bat-rumour storage caves for now. But with Affleck signed on for multiple outings as the Caped Crusader, the idea is hardly far fetched. Warners would naturally want to capitalise on any potential goodwill generated by Zack Snyder’s two new movies and it only seems right that the new Bats score his own adventure.

@BatmanArkhamK Real-Life Batmobile

BAT - BLOG : BATMAN TOYS and COLLECTIBLES: BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Real-Life Batmobile Car!: OK, maybe I should NOT have used the phrase "real-life" in the title because I don't think this thing is actually drive-a...

OK, maybe I should NOT have used the phrase "real-life" in the title because I don't think this thing is actually drive-able, ha! But you get the idea. Check out these amazing photos of a car that Warner Bros had built to showcase their new video game, BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT. 

We're sure this thing will be appearing at most of this year's major Comic Book Conventions to promote the game.... KICK ASS!! Hey, if anyone out there gets a chance to see it in real-life (yes, a stupid PUN) please send us some pics. I love this new car!

@CaptainCanuck set to Celebrate #CanadaDay !

In celebration of the great nation of Canada, Captain Canuck Incorporated is releasing the 1st Annual Captain Canuck Canada Day Edition.
WHEN & WHERE : From June 28- July 1st, 2014, the Canada Day edition will be distributed free through comic book stores, public libraries, convenience stores and shopping malls across Canada. After July 1st, it will be sold at comic book shops across Canada for $2.99.

this is just plane FUN!


How do those meddling kids do it? How do Scooby and the gang keep such an upbeat attitude as they pass through a world of decay and darkness? For the Mystery Inc. team every day amounts to stormy skies and abandoned places. Every destination is a haven for greed and deception where more than half the people they meet are fear mongering criminals. Perhaps Scoob and company cope with their bleak reality by finding comfort in the beauty that surrounds them.

The background art in Scooby Doo Where Are You? (1969-1971) is equally splendid and foreboding. The rich, painterly environment almost compensates for the clunky character animation. Ex-Disney artist, Walt Peregoy set a high standard during his brief, first episode stint as Background Stylist. But the background crew continued to churn out quality, creepy work throughout the following two seasons. Hanna-Barbera may be known for their annoying use of repeated, looping backgrounds but, as you are about to see, in this case the sublime scenery is well worth another look.

#Batman Doesn't Kill??

Ask any comic book nerds and they'll tell you that there are two things that define Batman: With enough prep time, he could take down God himself, and he never, ever takes a life. However, for a guy who supposedly took a vow to never use a gun or kill any of his enemies (thus justifying the continued existence of the Joker), it turns out that Batman has not just murdered several dudes over the years, but done so in gruesome ways that probably made his victims wish that he'd just shot them.

Heavy Metal BATMAN Tribute Band from Croatia!

BAT - BLOG : BATMAN TOYS and COLLECTIBLES: MadX - A Heavy Metal BATMAN Tribute Band from Croa...: WOW! I got an email the other day all the way from Croatia! A band member of a group called "MadX" contacted me to share these...

More Films from #DC coming!

May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
The report also gives the reason why Batman v Superman was delayed, and that reason is that the film will act as a launching pad for Justice League, which is something a lot of fans speculated anyway. The site's source then says that the superheroes in their cinematic universe will make cameos in each other's films. Here's the quote explaining that:
"Like Marvel’s The Avengers, there will be cameos of superheroes for future installments. The cameos will include the already known Cyborg and Flash. Green Lantern [not played by Ryan Reynolds, thank god] may be introduced.  And Aquaman will be seen in the Justice League movie. Problem is, Warner Bros Pictures was still negotiating with the actors for those cameos and future roles, meaning major contracts for multiple JL/character films to follow. The studio didn’t want to move forward until they had more of this secure so they held off starting production for a few months. Seemingly simple reason, but the implications are pretty darn huge."

Street Legaal #Batmobile
This guy built a street legal Batmobile in his back yard! you have to check out the link to see the complete series of pics and video of the project.

After a life-long love of Batman, 29-year-old Sydney man Zac Mihajlovic spent two years building a Batmobile in his backyard. The superhero enthusiast made a 6.2 metre Batmobile modelled in accurate detail on the one used by Batman in the 1989 movie - the only one in the world with full street registration. With a passion for the winged comic character, in 2009 Mr Mihajlovic bought a few spare parts from the actual Batmobile used in the movie and put them away. 'I'm a car and bike guy so I love all that sort of stuff,' he said. 'It doesn't get much better, if you can build anything what would you build? For me it was a Batmobile.'
