Golfing wiith Bruce Wayne

Golfing With the Dark Knight (complete post here)

If Bruce Wayne had no desire to keep his crime-fighting identity as Batman a secret, he would probably tool around the golf course in this:



This stylish golf cart is modeled after The Tumbler-the vehicle that Bruce Wayne adapts into the Batmobile in Batman Begins and which met with a dramatic destruction at the hands of the Joker in The Dark Knight.



Complete with rocket booster, a stylized windshield and a spoiler, this tricked out ride would definitely turn the heads of golfers and comic book fans alike.  And they would hear it coming; the cart incorporates several sound effects from the movies.

Seen around the Warner Brothers' movie lot, this golf cart was originally thought to be owned by Christopher Nolan, the co-writer/director of the two wildly successful superhero flicks.  It was later discovered that it belongs to a huge fan of the caped crusader who happens to work on the lot.

While I couldn't find more specs on this little vehicle, remembering this scene from Batman Begins and wondering if the golf cart could do any of this stuff sparked my imagination:

I’m Too Hairy For Batman Movie

Robin Williams: I’m Too Hairy For Batman Movie

Robin Williams: I’m Too Hairy For Batman Movie
Robin Williams


Robin Williams thinks he is “too hairy” to star in the next Batman film.
The actor adores the comic film franchise, and would agree to star in the next one without even seeing the script. He would prefer to play a villain, even though he is worried he could never measure up to Heath Ledger’s portrayal of The Joker in The Dark Knight.
Robin does think he would play The Riddler well, but insists he is far too hairy to wear the character’s skin-tight costume.
“I would do Batman in a second, playing anyone,” Robin said. “I’d play The Riddler in the next one, although it would be hard to top Heath as the villain and I’m a little hairy for tights.”
Robin has a disappointing history with the Batman series. He was offered parts in two previous films, only to have them given to other stars at the last minute. Despite this, he would still love to star in any future instalments.
“The Batman films have screwed me twice before: years ago they offered my The Joker and then gave it to Jack Nicholson, then they offered me The Riddler and gave it to Jim Carrey. I’d be like, ‘OK, is this a real offer? If it is, then the answer’s yes. Don’t pump me again motherf**kers,’” he told Empire magazine.

Batman Beyond Movie Trailer (Fake)

This guy made a live action version of the Batman Beyond title sequence. I think it's pretty good. Looks like he used clips from The Watchmen, and Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and a couple fan films.
Take a look.

BATMAN 3: The Joker will NOT feature

BATMAN 3: The Joker will NOT feature says Chris Nolan
.
When asked on whether Nolan would re-cast The Joker for Batman 3, he ‘emphatically and without hesitation’ answers “NO!”.
So that’s it, all the two year speculation on the ethics behind a potential re-casting of the late Heath Ledger in his Oscar winning, iconic role can be put to bed. THE JOKER WON’T APPEAR IN BATMAN 3. Presumably we have to imagine him for the time being as a mental patient locked up in Arkham Asylum.
Transcript is after the jump;

From the latest issue of Empire magazine;
There is the ever-lurking question about villains: who will The Dark Knight tussle with this time… Could it possibly be a returning (and recast) Joker, pulling strings from Arkham, Lecter-style, Empire wonders?
“No”, says Nolan emphatically and unhesitatingly. He resists elaborating simply because, quite understandably, he says, “I just don’t feel comfortable talking about it”.

City of Scars

Ever since Batman: Dead End made it's debut on the fan film circuit, I think it raised the bar as far as fan films went. Quality production with good story and a eye for details. Well......I think there is a new film ready to take it's place.
I have followed BITS (Bat in the Sun) for some time now. They have been making fan films (most of which are Batman related) for about a decade now.
This is their film Batman: City of Scars.
An extremely well done film with great sets and stroyline, attention to detail and a bit of a Film Noir feel to it. I hope all the fans out there enjoy it as much as I do.





and.....I love the fact that they worked in The Ventriloquist

Anatomy of a superhero | The Augusta Chronicle

Anatomy of a superhero | The Augusta Chronicle
This is a cool article about a virtual fight to see who the top Super is !!!! Of Course....it turns out to be BATMAN ! Yeah!!
If you get a chance, and you have some time to kill (like me) check out the other articles on the site.


In the end, it came down to the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. After several weeks of close contests, the final fight in The Augusta Chronicle's Superhero Smack-down featured two of the best-known characters in comic book history -- Superman and Batman.
 
 
Christian Bale starred as Batman in the 2005 film Batman Begins (above) and 2008's The Dark Knight. The character first appeared in the 1939 Detective Comics No. 27.
By defeating his rival, Batman proved that in both Gotham City and the Garden City, he's the hero to beat -- despite the fact that he is the one superhero who has no super powers.
What is it about Batman -- a hero sometimes depicted as a violent vigilante and at other times as a campy crusader -- that continues to resonate with audiences?

Comic Book History Display

This a great little piece of comic book history. Check it out. I would love to go to this display and see these things up close.






More than 70 years ago, the very first superheroes debuted in the dire times of the Great Depression and the early years of World War II. Their names became legend -- Superman, Batman (or, as he was then known, the Bat-Man), Wonder Woman, Captain America -- and they're still with us today.

A new exhibit at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles celebrates these icons from the Golden Age of Comic Books. Through a collection of rare original artwork and comics, the exhibit explores how a group of mostly Jewish artists created the costumed heroes who came to symbolize the hopes of a beleaguered nation.

"In the 1930s, the American Dream had become a nightmare, and I think comic books and superheroes in particular provided an escapist form of entertainment that allowed the American public to go into a fantasy world where all the ills of the world were righted by these larger-than-life heroes," says Erin Clancy, a curator at the Skirball.

Villians for Batman 3???

Step aside Eddie Murphy, move over Cher. The rumour mill has churned out Joseph Gordon Levitt as the front runner to play the super-villain in Christopher Nolan's new Batman film

It must have been almost a whole three months or so since the last spurious rumour about Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight follow-up hit the interweb, so it's hardly surprising that the gossip mill has been ramped up once again this morning.Read more here.

Batman's past, present, future collide

(CNN) -- As everyone but the citizens of Gotham City knows, Batman is Bruce Wayne. But lately, he's been Dick Grayson. And this month, he's also Damian Wayne and Terry McGinnis. Will the real Batman please stand up?
This look at Batman's past, present and future has been brought about by Grant Morrison, the Scottish writer and playwright behind the award-winning "All-Star Superman." Morrison has masterminded a new direction for the character and returns to the 70-year-old "Batman" comic book series with its 700th issue Wednesday.
"I started to do a bunch of research, and I realized that every story had been told," Morrison said. He decided upon a psychological deconstruction of the character that would run over many issues and over two years, beginning with the story arc "Batman & Son" in 2006.

Check out the rest of the CNN article here.

Christopher Nolan on Batman and Superman

(taken from www.superherohype.com )

Empire magazine talked to Christopher Nolan, whose new film Inception opens July 16, and got some great quotes from the helmer on the next Batman movie, coming July 20, 2012, and next Superman movie, targeted for a holiday 2012 release.

It was recently revealed that he would take on a mentor (or "godfather") role for the Superman movie, but he's not that comfortable with that title. "It's much more specific than that," he explained, "What it is, while David Goyer and myself were putting together the story for another Batman film a few years ago - you know, thrashing out where we might move on from 'The Dark Knight' - we got stuck. We were just sitting there idly chatting and he said, ' By the way, I think I know how you approach Superman,' and he told me his take on it. I thought it was really tremendous. It was the first time I had been able to conceive of how you would address Superman in a modern context. I thought it was a very exciting idea."
