Imagine a world where Batman and Darth Vader live in the same universe. Vader’s Force powers could go against Batman and his science and logic. They would undoubtedly have an epic battle, and this Batman vs. Darth Vader Super Power Beat Down video from Machinima depicts how it might play out.

Place your bets and watch the fight after the break.

bale

It came as no surprise to Christian Bale that a new Batman was cast for Batman v. Superman, but he was still jealous when he heard that Ben Affleck got the role. He told Empire:

I’ve got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always a bit of me going, ‘Oh go on… Let’s do another.’ So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour.

I have to say that staring “into nothing for half an hour” is much more of an emotional reaction than we would expect from someone who seemed so adamant about moving on from the role. Bale went on to say that he did manage to shake off the funk once he absorbed the news and even reached out to Affleck.

But I’m 40. The fact that I’m jealous of someone else playing Batman…I think I should have gotten over it by now. I haven’t spoken with Ben, but I emailed him offering bits of advice that I learned the hard way. I would imagine he is doing everything he can to avoid anything that I did.

The internet didn’t have the best reaction to news that Affleck had been cast in the role either, so good for Bale that he came to terms with it and even offered to help Affleck.

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.

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.

Check out the video after the break…

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.

Watch the LEGO antics after the break.

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.
