$1 Million Street Legal Tumbler Batmobile


1-Million-Street-Legal-Batman-Tumbler

When it comes to supercars, we’re not sure there’s anything out there that even compares to Batman’s Tumbler. For the first time ever, fans of the Dark Knight can own their very own street legal Tumbler. Although it’s equipped with a V8 LS1 motor, the RWD Batmobile probably won’t compete with a similarly priced supercar. But, what it lacks in performance, it makes up in sheer awesomeness. The vehicle has been outfitted with everything Bruce Wayne would need to fight crime including five driver-assisted cameras, GPS, and 44″ swamper tires to tackle rough terrain. The 2-seater definitely requires a Bruce Wayne size bank account though, as this Tumbler is currently on the market for a cool $1 million.

Batkid, The City Of San Francisco Is Safe Again


Screen-Shot-2013-11-16-at-10.34.55-AM

The streets of San Francisco are safe once again thanks to a duo of masked heroes. When legendary superhero Batman couldn’t save the day all on his own today, he enlisted the help of Batkid, a miniature version of the Dark Knight, himself. What he lacked in stature, he made up for in heart, as the young hero brought peace back to the city after the villainous Riddler took the city, and one woman, hostage. Batman and Batkid swooped in to untie the damsel in distress, disarming the bomb she was attached to. The real question remains, who is Batkid? Rumors have it, Batkid’s true identity is 5-year-old Miles Scott, whose real life is even more inspiring than that of Batkid. Miles has been battling leukemia since he was 18 months old, and is finally in remission. City of San Francisco and Make-A-Wish did an amazing thing for making this incredible day possible.

San Francisco Will Be Turned Into Gotham City on November 15th.


san-francisco-skyline-at-night

San Francisco is a city known for hosting some pretty off-the-wall events that transform the entire city. From a massive Valentines Day pillow fight, to having one of the most colorful Halloween celebrations ever, SF gets ” out there”. But on November 15th, the city will go through a transformation from San Francisco to in Gotham City for one of its most courageous heroes.

A five-year-old Miles is fighting a battle against leukemia and thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation, he will get the chance to fulfill his dream being the real life Dark Knight. Along with a grownup Batman sidekick, Miles will get a call from the police chief and jump into his very own Batmobile to defend the city against some of his fiercest foes – including the Riddler and Penguin. Thousands of volunteers already signed up to play along.

Make-A-Wish Bay Area describes the plot line of the day:

After rescuing a damsel in distress from the cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batman will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco – directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a call on his batphone to go to the window – where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batman’s help. Why?

Because the Penguin will be kidnapping a famous Gotham City mascot! The getaway car will be visible on Union Square (a convertible so that everyone can see what is happening), and the chase will be on!

After catching the Penguin, Batman will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of Gotham City will thank him and give him the key to the city. We plan on having hundreds of volunteers and donors collected to cheer and thank our Batman!

The Make-A-Foundation will provide more details and updates on the event soon. Check their page as Miles’ big day draws nearer for ways you can help: Miles’ Wish

Created by an artist known only as Paper Beats Scissors, this collection of  illustrations depicts the single moment when two different characters from pop culture meet and give each other an empathetic fist bump due to a similarly depressing trait that they both share. For instance, when the Dark Knight and Harry Potter meet for the first time, they fist bump the fact that they are both orphans. There are a huge amount of characters included within the series from film, television, video games, comic books, animation and technology.

Ben Affleck to Star as Batman in ‘Man of Steel’ Sequel

Superhero movie fans, we have our next Dark Knight. Oscar-winner Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman in the sequel to “Man of Steel,” Warner Brothers has confirmed. Affleck, who recently won a Best Picture Oscar for producing “Argo,” which he directed and starred in, will join Henry Cavill as Superman in the next installment of the Superman franchise. The yet-to-be titled film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who lensed “Man of Steel,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch.” “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman,” Snyder said in a statement. “He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne.  I can’t wait to work with him.” The film will bring Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen, and will also bring back “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The announcement of Affleck in one of the lead roles followed weeks of speculation about who would play Batman in the hotly anticipated film. After Christian Bale, who starred in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, nixed the idea of returning to the role, a number of actors were rumored to be on board the project, including Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Michael Fassbender.

The announcement was made today by Warner Bros. Pictures  representatives Greg Silverman and Sue Kroll:

We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular super heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some,” Greg Silverman, president of creative development at Warner Bros., said in a statement. “His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.
