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.

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.

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.

On Friday, a rumor began making the rounds (beginning with Bleeding Cool), that a Batmobile had been stolen while filming in Detroit. Never fear Bat Fans, because the safety of the Batmobile was later confirmed by Detroit police spokesman Sgt. Michael Woody who was quoted in the Detroit Free Press saying:

“The Batmobile is safe in the Batcave where it belongs.”

Zack Snyder also confirmed that the Batmobile is safe through a hilarious tweet involving a wayward Stormtrooper.

See the tweet from Snyder after the break.
