THE DARK KNIGHT RISES at The Movie Drive-In!!

"Hey, Let's All Go To The Lobby, Let's All Go To The Lobby..."

 These photos are great for two reasons: 1. The Costumes look great! We have Batman, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn right here!! 2. They were shot at a Vintage-Style Movie Drive-In! I totally love those places, "Hey Mom, we're sitting IN the car AND watching a movie!". The audio was always kinda crappy but just the joy of going with a bunch of friends and having your own space was always good times. Plus, you ALWAYS had to go hit the concession stand for munchies, ha! Very cool!

 Whoops, did I mention that Batman here is our friend William? Yes, This is him & his Wife ( I think, maybe? ), with another friend, and they all went in costume to go see THE DARK KNIGHT RISES at their local drive-in. Oh man, I bet if kids were there they went totally insane, ha! ( Thanks William for sharing your wonderful photos )

Here's a photo of our Good Friend Salvatore about to go into THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Movie. Now, if I have my information correct then he saw this film at the BFI-IMAX Theater in London, England.

OK, He didn't state he saw this in the UK but I researched the Theater he said he went too and Google said, "London". I also came across this photo showing the crazy "Advertising Banner" display that this place did. Oh man, check it out!! ( You might need to click on it for a larger HD version ). It's insanely cool!!

Sorry Salvatore for having this post all mixed-up ( ha ha! ) but I do appreciate you sharing your photo.

BATMAN NEWS - Christain Bale Visits Memorial Site in Aurora, Colorado

The BAT-BLOG reported the other day about Christian Bale's visit to a Colorado Hospital where he met a few of the people who were injured during the recent Aurora Movie Theater Tragedy. Mr. Bale had done this on his own & was not representing Warner Bros or anybody else, except himself. WOW! What an extremely generous & cool thing to do. 

Well, he also made a short appearance at the Memorial Site. He placed some flowers there and greeted a few family members to give his condolences. Again, a very classy thing to do. We're all really proud to be Batman Fans right now and I also know that we will all get over this event someday. It might take time, but like they say, "Time Heals". Thank you Mr. Bale.

New BATMAN TOYS and PRODUCTS Due in July 2012

Here's a weird "post idea" I came up with. Just post a bunch of Batman Toys that are due to be released, or are already out, in July. First up is the latest issue of Mad Magazine with a DARK KNIGHT RISES Movie Parody Cover. Speaking of that film, the next pic is a new Wall Mural Sticker made by a company called Roommates. Then we have a beautiful HARLEY QUINN Toon Tumbler Glass. From Mattel comes this set of 10-Inch Figure of both Batman and Bane. Then, the last pic shows a cool BATMAN Cliff Hanger Playset made by Matchbox. Whew!! OK, if anybody ( this means YOU ) sees ANY brand-new pieces of Bat-Merchandise then please let us know, thanks!!


Just a quick post to share a few photos from the 2012 San Diego Comic Con where the Brand-New HOT TOYS 1966 Batmobile Batman Vehicle made an appearance, YES!! Oh man, this Japanese Toy Company just keeps torturing me, arrgghh!

Batman Actor Christian Bale Visits Victims in Colorado Hospital

OK, This is a pretty cool story and one that I've very proud to report. Now, if I have my info correct, yesterday THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Actor Christian Bale, who obviously played "Batman" in the recent Bat-Trilogy movies, went to a Colorado Hospital and visited a few of the victims of the recent Aurora Movie Premier Tragedy. It's important to note that Bale was NOT representing Warner Bros Entertainment in any way, BUT went on his own. Here's a few photos I was able to find. 

Now I gotta say, "Oh man, how cool is this?!!". I hope that in some way Christian Bale sees this post ( not really gonna happen ) and I want to thank him for being a true hero and a decent stand-up guy. This is a very heart-warming story. Thank you Mr. Bale! I also want to extend my deepest condolences to everyone touched by his hideous event. The only good thing to come out of it is we might all become united in rising above this tragedy.
