Visual History of The #Batmobile
 To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Batman franchise, we first documented The Complete History of Batman in TV and Film and now present 10 illustrated versions of Batman’s iconic vehicles by David Lo exclusively for .... Highsnobiety. While most will associate the Dark Knight’s vehicle of choice with Christopher Nolan’s Tumbler, the Caped Crusader has in fact driven a handful of cars, each a symbol of the era through its combination of design, function and technology.

#Joker Animatronic from Six Flags

#LostHeroes Film now available
It's online ready to purchase!
A great tribute to the Canadian Comic Industry.
 Lost Heroes is the story of these forgotten Canadian comic book superheroes and their legendary creators. Recovering a forgotten part of our nation’s pop culture, Lost Heroes is the story of a national treasure that few of us have ever heard about. It’s the story of a small country striving to create its own heroes but finding itself constantly out-muscled by better-funded and better-marketed heroes from the media empire next door. It’s the story of Canada striving for more than seventy years to have its own band of national comic book superheroes, but constantly failing to keep them alive. The question is: why?

LEGO: DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League Trailer

Justice League vs Bizarro League - Batman has joined the just formed
Justice League in order to keep tabs on Superman, a mistrust that is
complicated by Superman’s bad (but well meaning) clone Bizarro and his
creation of the Bizarro League, but an even bigger threat forces the two
Leagues to join forces.

THIS is/was the 1st #Batmobile

In 1956, DC Comics (then called National Periodical Publications) officially licensed the first Batmobile to Oldsmobile. Forrest Robinson and friend Len Perham began modifying the car in 1960. They finished their work in 1963, beating the Burt Ward / Adam West Batman series by three years. The car is based on what the dynamic duo drives in the comic books; it's a far sleeker (if smaller) car than the 1939 Cadillac driven in the Batman movie serials of the 1940s.

For the Bat-Record....

I GOTTA get one of these! So cool. 

Forget Christian Bale and Chris Nolan, Michael Keaton and Tim Burton, or even Frank Miller; everyone knows that the truly greatest Batman is the one from Bruce Timm and Paul Dini’s seminal Batman: The Animated Series which ran from 1992-99 in various incarnations. Now Mondo is helping to celebrate the Dark Knight’s 75th Anniversary in style, with an all-new vinyl pressing of the show’s original theme song from composer Danny Elfman (Oingo Boingo), as well as the end credits music. (Side-A will have the opening title and end credits as they appeared in the show, Side-B will have alternate versions.) This will be a 12″ die-cut version of the single, in the shape of the bat-signal, and it will come housed in a gatefold jacket designed by Phantom City Creative, and will be pressed on Black and Black with Gray Splatter vinyl.

History of #Batman on Film

No matter which actor is your Batman, each has celebrated a different Caped Crusader. Take a look at the link above for a thorough rundown of the Dark Knight’s history in television and film.


 This history of the Batman will continue on in Ben Affleck’s portrayal as the Caped Crusader in 2016, continually celebrating this DC Comics’ character as a cultural icon.

Did you know this about The Dark Knight?
 Some of these we've heard before, some are now. Either way, a good list for any fan of the Nolan-verse Batman!

 Much as he cast Christian Bale before the script for Batman Begins had been finalized, Christopher Nolan spoke to actor Heath Ledger about playing the Joker long before a script had been written. Ledger had actually met with Nolan about playing Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins, but it was more a formality than anything else, as Ledger flat out told Nolan that he had in interest whatsoever in appearing in a “comic book” movie.
