Designed by Encho Enchev, a senior 3D artist and designer at Ubsoft, this awesome Batmobile concept takes some of what we know and love and puts a sleeker, futuristic spin on it.

In addition to Batmobiles of the past, the design takes some of its inspiration from actual bats—as you can see in the grill design pictured below.

Batman won’t take your phone calls, so there’s only one alternative.

This 3D printed lens designed by Dalpek can be placed over your phone’s flash, casting the Bat Signal instead of, y’know, providing general illumination. We’re assured that if the Dark Knight doesn’t show up within thirty minutes your vigilante justice is free.

You can print one out for free using the plans on Thingiverse, or you can buy one ready-made for only $6.

While people may be pondering the fate of movies adapted from YA novels, YA novels themselves are still going strong and they’re about to get an influx of DC Comics heroes.

Four new novels have been announced. Best-selling author Leigh Bardugo (Shadow and Bone, Siege and Storm, and Ruin and Rising) will be penning a new Wonder Woman novel, which will be the first release in August 2017. Marie Lu (Legend and Young Elites trilogy) will follow WW with Batman. After that, Matt de la Peña (The Living, Ball Don’t Lie) will have Superman, and Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass) is filling out the first four with Catwoman.

Having read Marvel’s Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl (and loved it), I’m hoping DC decides to follow suit and set the books after each of the character’s origin stories.

Seriously, no more origin stories.

Blimey, LEGO fans are an inventive lot. A couple of months ago we showed you a Brickhead who recreated Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum in LEGO. Now some other bugger’s only gone and recreated the entire ruddy Batcave, hasn’t he?

The talented bugger in question is Dan Glasure who, over the course of two months, created a version of the Batcave that incorporates design elements from a number of different iterations of the Dark Knight’s homestead. Unlike some other LEGO Batcave constructions, this one spreads out vertically rather than horizontally. It’s an interesting take on a location that’s been depicted endlessly over the years.

Batman probably isn’t too keen on letting the general public explore his lair, but even he can’t keep secrets from Google.

A partnership between Google and Warner Bros has resulted in a devistating lapse in security that allows you to explore the elaborate Batcave set in Google Street View.

Say what you want about the film, but they clearly went all out with the details. Start exploring below.

Untitled-2

Back in the ’60s, Batman had a Bat-everything. From a Bat Computer to Bat Shark Repellent, the guy was set if he needed something that did a thing and also had a tiny picture of a bat on it (or, at the very least, the word “BAT”).

That said, even he probably didn’t have Bat Mood Lighting. We reckon that’s more of a Clooney Batman thing.

This USB-powered light comes with a base, but you can also mount it on a wall. We recommend affixing it just above your bed so you can dream of vengeance.

In the original batman canon, Bruce Wayne trained to be the best at everything. We reckon even he would have trouble fitting an entire PC inside of this Batmobile model.

Built entirely from scratch by Thechoosen and friends as an entry for a Batman casemod challenge on the MSI Forums, this system is liquid-cooled, packs 16GB of RAM and contains a GTX 960 Gaming 4G graphics card. It even has working headlights! So, yeah. Not too shabby.

Check out some select photos of the build process below.

If you need Batman to come and save the day, all you have to do is flip on the Bat-Signal. But what if you want LEGO Batman to rescue you? Well… you’re going to need a LEGO Bat-Signal of course.

Nathan Sawaya, the NYC-based artist behind The Art of the Brick, recently debuted a life-size LEGO replica of the Bat-Signal from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Good Morning America. It clocks in at 7-feet tall, and the floodlight actually works!

Sawaya and his crew spent five weeks and 75,000 bricks on the piece. Sawaya originally installed the signal in Times Square, but it will tour around the country as part of the “Art of the Brick: DC Comics” traveling exhibition. It will also make an appearance at WonderCon.
