LEGO batman

Lego Batman is getting his own movie before The Lego Movie gets a sequel because, well, he’s Lego Batman.

Yep, Lego Batman was so popular that they’re fast tracking a spinoff for him. Will Arnett is returning to voice the Dark Lego Knight and the screenplay is being written by Seth Grahame-Smith of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies fame. Warner Brothers is looking to have the movie out in 2017.

Kevin Smith is a huge Batman fan so he must be pretty darn excited to be playing a part in the upcoming Lego Batman 3. Not only will we get Smith playing Smith, but DC Entertainment chief creative officer Geoff Johns will also be playing himself. Steve Arnell, who is Green Arrow on TV, will be voicing Green Arrow in the game and Troy Baker will be voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The group will be appearing at a New York Comic-Con panel next weekend on Saturday, October 11 at noon near main stage 1-D where attendees will get to learn about all things Lego Batman.

batman stamps 1

Thankfully, these are Val Kilmer-free.

Indeed, DC Comics is continuing the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Batman by releasing some themed stamps. The Batman postage will be of the Forever variety but do not have designs from the Batman Forever film. It’s an important distinction. Eight designs showcase four eras from Batman’s history, and the $0.49 stamps will be sold in sheets of 20. They’ll be available beginning on October 9th to kick off New York Comic Con.

See two more of the stamps after the break.

death of batman's parents

Batman’s origin story is practically a tale as old as time. Nearly every on screen appearance of Batman is accompanied by a flashback showing the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne. A mugger approaches them in Crime Alley after a night at the theater, death and vengeance follow. Vulture took it upon themselves to compile a supercut of the various takes on the Waynes’ death. No wonder Bruce became Batman.

Watch the supercut after the break.

hunka junk in LEGO

Remember that beautiful Millennium Falcon fly-by that Bad Robot posted last week? It not only showed off a tiny glimpse of Episode VII, it had a glorious Batmobile easter egg. YouTuber Chris Lankford has recreated the scene with LEGO and Batman’s Tumbler is much easier to spot in this version of the video.

batman key organizer 1

No one can keep your jewelry, keys, or coats safe like Batman can. Etsy seller 2D23D has appointed the best person for the job by making acrylic Batman symbol racks. The wall mounted racks feature different versions of the Batman symbol and come with different types of hooks so you can hang anything you please on them. You can either stick the Bat-racks to the wall using sticky pads or screw them into place.

See a few other styles of Batman symbols after the break.

Ancient Mayan Batman

Yep, you’re looking at Mayan Batman. I’d love to tell you that this piece of art is actually an ancient Mayan relic, but alas, that’s not true. It’s a piece of modern art that was made by Behance user Kimbal. Warner Home Entertainment Mexico and the Mexican Museum of Design commissioned 30 artists, including Kimball, to create unique pieces of art to celebrate the Dark Knights’ 75th Anniversary as well as highlight Mexican art as a whole. Each artist was given a simple, plain-white Batman bust and was told to have fun. Kimbal’s take was based on the Mayan god Camazotz and, as you can see, it’s incredibly awesome.

There were sneak peeks of the Batmobile, and then rumors that it had been stolen, but this time it’s video of the car in action. Not only do we see it during filming as it drives down the street, but it’s chasing bad guys and there’s gunfire, too!

See the videos after the break.

batman falcon

J.J. Abrams has given us another sneak peek at the Star Wars set. This time it’s a look at the Falcon with an awesome Batman crossover.

Could it be his answer to Snyder’s recent Stormtrooper arrest in Gotham? Snyder has been teasing Star Wars/Batman crossovers for a while now, so here’s hoping they keep this up.

Check it out after the break.

The first episode of Gotham is set to premiere on Fox on September 22nd, but you can take a closer look at what’s in store thanks to a new 360-degree interactive site set up to promote the show. WitnessGotham is a interactive site that let’s you virtually explore the Wayne murder scene with clues, clips, and backstory on the characters. There are whole sections of the site that aren’t unlocked yet, so this will likely continue to evolve as episodes air.

You can take a look right now, but fair warning, if you don’t want to know anything until you see the show, this might be a bit spoilery.
