These fantastic renderings imagine an Adventure Time/”Batman mashup done as 3D figures. Artist Volatile-Vertex came up with the idea to celebrate Batman’s 75th anniversary and Bat-Finn has never looked better. In addition to Finn as Batman, there’s Jake as a gargoyle, Princess Bubblegum as Batgirl, the Ice King as Mr. Freeze, Gunter as the Penguin, King Worm as the Mad Hatter, and BMO as Alfred. Maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll actually make these figures because they’re simply perfect.

Recent set photos provide evidence that elements of Batman V. Superman are going to look a lot like Frank Miller’s comic The Dark Knight Returns. Minor spoilers ahead.

It all has to do with the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne. I know you’re thinking “not again!”, but take a look a the photos. The scene seems to be pulled right out of the comic. You can see the Wayne Family is coming out of a showing of The Mark of Zorro before the murders and, is that Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne?

Check out the set gallery along with a comparison with The Dark Knight Returns after the break…

lego mash-ups 3

If you have a pile of LEGO minifig parts in front of you, it’s only natural to mix them up and see what happens. Artist Alexandre Tissier came up with some perfect mash-ups for a Fiction Meets Fiction campaign for LEGO. He’s got Homer Simpson as Wolverine, Spider-Man as James Bond, Darth Vader as a geisha, and Batman in pajamas and holding a teddy bear. I feel compelled to make these designs a reality.

Bat1

This is a street legal Batmobile that of 29-year-old Zac Mihajlovic of Camden, Australia built over the course of two years. As you can see, it’s based on the version of the Batmobile driven by Michael Keaton in the 1989 film. The car doesn’t have any weapons of course, but he did put in an afterburner which he uses to road marshmallows.

Although he’s had offers in the six-figure range from folks who want to buy the Batmobile, he has no plans to sell. Instead, he has teamed up with Make-a-Wish to dress up as Batman and visit sick kids. I think Batman would definitely approve.

the lego movie batman

If you’ve seen The LEGO Movie, you know that Wyldstyle ditches Batman. In this fan-made short by How It Should Have Ended, Batman swings by and says he thinks that Wyldstyle has taken a step down and is settling by dating Emmet. That is, until Emmet shows up. It turns out that he’s transformed into Star-Lord (because, you know…Chris Pratt), and Batman is jealous.

batdad

If you’ve seen our BatDad coverage, you know he’s a lot of fun. Heck, BatDad is one of my favorite things on the internet and, I’ll admit, I was starting to worry since he’s been kinda quiet lately. Was BatDad gone for good?

Never fear! BatDad is back with new adventure and multiple sidekicks. It’s fun for the whole family.

Check it out after the break.

Morena-Baccarin

If you needed a reason to watch Gotham, this may be it. Morena Baccarin is joining the cast as Dr. Leslie Thompkins. She’s starting as a recurring character, but they’re looking to make her a series regular in season 2. Personally, I like when anything Morena does gets more than one season.

In the comics, Thompkins was a doctor at Arkham and was close friends with Bruce Wayne’s parents. She also became a mom of sorts to Bruce and was one of the few who knew he was Batman. It looks like they’re planning on keeping that story for Gotham, but they’re also hinting at her being a love interest for Jim Gordon.

Doctor, surrogate mom, and love interest? Professional and nurturing? Yeah, I think she can do that.

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.
