    1333134120

    1332433800

    If there's one thing nerds love more than obscure factoids, it's the thrill of a good argument. MSN has set out to settle one of comic bookdom's quintessential questions by attempting to discern whether the 1989 Batmobile is quicker than its 1966 predecessor. While we'd love nothing better to see ...

    1331755140

    Where does he get those wonderful toys? We're speaking, in case you didn't catch the movie quote, of Batman. Specifically, his most famous car, otherwise known as the Batmobile. There have been well over a hundred Batmobiles since the first, a 1936 Cord, was used in 1941. Seventy-one years ...

    Fans are flocking to the Pittsburgh set of the newest installment in the Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises. If we lived nearby, we'd be there all the time as well – the action consists of a fleet of Tumblers, a handful of fight scenes, the Batpod and random glimpses of Ms. Anne ...

    Video: Batpod-riding Catwoman takes out camera rig on set of Dark Knight Rises
    1312923600

    Production of Dark Knight Rises is currently underway in Pittsburgh, and we're sure this flick costs a bit more than your average indie film. Still, it can't be fun being the person responsible for asking for more money. The extra cash will be necessary, however, because Catwoman just took out an ...

    Bruce Wayne to drive Lamborghini Aventador in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises
    1309282140

    Bruce Wayne has lots of toys at his disposal. Billions of dollars and Lucius Fox mean a near unlimited supply of pure awesome. Still, Wayne can't play Batman during daylight hours, so his ride has to be a tad more subtle than The Tumbler. In Batman: The Dark Night, Bruce Wayne drove a ...

    Gordon Murray's Batmobile unveiled [w/video]
    1308348780

    In the annals of Batmobile history, we're not sure where to peg this latest version. The good: It's dark, it's carbon fiber and it spits flames from a carbon-ceramic afterburner. The bad: It's just really freaking dull. But because it's been designed by Gordon Murray of McLaren F1 fame (not to ...
