Video - How THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Batman Movie Should Have Ended

WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS MOVIE SPOILERS!! Here is one of those totally hilarious "How It Should Have Ended" animation videos with their take on how THE DARK KNIGHT RISES film should have ended, funny!

New BATMAN LIVE Hot Wheels BATMOBILE Diecast Toy Car


Shown here are 2 variations on the Hot Wheels BATMAN LIVE BATMOBILE by Mattel that you might keep an eye out for in the future. One version comes with an Acrylic Case that is an EXCLUSIVE ITEM sold at the 2012 BATMAN LIVE World Arena Tour event. 


The regular-packaged one is gonna be sold in retail stores everywhere. Both cars are totally identical but I think the acrylic case is kinda cool. But, because of my lame limited budget I'll probably just wait for the carded version. ( Special Thanks to Steve and BatmoBilly for sharing their wonderful pics )

Video - SUPERMAN DEAN CAIN Helps BATMAN Propose to BATGIRL at 2012 Dragon Con


Please be sure to check this video out because it really is a very heartwarming thing to see. It's also very sweet. This is a wonderful event that happened recently at the 2012 Dragon Con in Atlanta, Georgia, on September 1st. A Friend of the Bat-Blog, Ruby Rinesko, got Dean Cain ( TV's Superman ) to help him propose to his Girlfriend, Jennifer. She said, "YES!", of course, and we want to wish them the best of luck. Both of them are Cosplayers who always delight fans at Comic Cons with their amazing costumes. He is usually "Batman - Adam West Version" and she appears as "Batgirl - Yvonne Craig Style".

On a visit to Chip Kidd's Official Website the other day ( CHIPKIDD.COM ) I came across this very cool "Batman-related" story and just knew I had to "steal it", here it is:

The artwork is done by the amazing Comic Book Artist, Amanda Conner. It measures about 11″ X 14″ and has a donation price of $40.00. The cool thing is that all the money made from the sale of this art will help support CBLDF and also protect free speech. To order the CATWOMAN ART PRINT just click here.

BATMAN ART - Custom T-Shirt of THE JOKER Inspired by a Bat-Blog Story!


This is a post I'm very proud of. About a month ago we posted a very fun photo that a Friend of ours named Ruben sent us all the way from Chile. While there he spotted an extremely beautiful Graffiti Art Wall Mural of the Joker that he randomly came across. The artwork is really nice, very well done, plus, it looks very cool! You can see that by clicking HERE and please do because it explains a lot.

OK, if you saw the Joker Mural then you know why we HAD to post it, it's AWESOME! But, the really neat thing is that another Bat-Blog Fan saw this and was inspired to create a very cool design for a custom-made JOKER T-Shirt. Here it is... WOW!! This is exactly the reason I love doing this blog, connecting people from around the World who love the Batman character... very cool, Thanks!

LOUIE'S 1966 BATMOBILE CAR WINS THE 'BEST IN SHOW' PRIZE BUT THAT'S NOT THE GOOD NEWS!








Long Time Fans and Readers of the BAT-BLOG.COM know we have a Friend in New Jersey named Louie who has an amazing 1966 Batmobile Replica Car. We have featured it many times here and it's always really great to see. But here's a wonderful story that happened at a HUGE Car Show in Sayreville, NJ earlier this week ( That's where Jon Bon Jovi lives, ha! ) . Now, if you look at the 1st two photos you can see Louie's '66 Batmobile Car as it appeared at the event, it looks great! Then, there's another pic of him with his Giant-Size 65-Inches Tall Trophy. OK, it's totally great that Louie won the show, we're proud of him, but the really beautiful part of the whole thing is how he got to help make a Little Kid's night a night he'll never forget.



Up above is a photo of a Brave Little Kid who is battling Brain Cancer with complete dignity. We're really proud of him. He and his family were there and this 6 year old boy is a BIG Batman Fan!! So, Louie gladly gave the little guy a very special Batmobile experience with his dad looking on. This is the kind of uplifting stuff that the general public just doesn't get to see. This kid was, seriously, on Cloud Nine!! We hope and know he's going to make a great recovery. He just has to and we want to wish the best of luck for him & his Family. I'd also like to thank Louie, BatDave ( Bat-Ace Reporter, Photographer ), and his Girlfriend Lisa for sharing this special story. This is the kinda stuff that restores my faith in people.

TONY MARINO IS BATMAN! Vintage 1960's Wrestling Star Photos


Back in the mid-1960's there was a Professional Wrestler named Tony Marino who look on the persona of Batman ( Adam West version ) for the Wrestling Ring. Actually, I guess to get around copyright issues, he called himself, "BATTMAN", clever! Here are some Vintage Black and White Photos that recently surfaced on eBay. In fact, I think they're still available?? Anyways, our Friend Johan told us about this guy awhile back & then shared these pics with us today, Thank You Johan! 

Oh yeah, one last thing, Tony Marino is still alive today! Yes, He has gotta be like 80 years old now but, here's a LINK to a recent blog post where a Fan named Josh got to meet him, check it out!

BATMAN TATTOO ART - And The JOKER and HARLEY QUINN Too!!

Here's a great story and a very nice set of photos sent in to us by Steve from Wheeling, WY. He wanted to share these great photos of his FiancĂ© s "Harley Quinn" Tattoo and the "Batman and Joker" Tattoos he has. 


The cool thing is they're both very talented Tattoo Artists so he did her ink and she did his, nice! But that's not all. This October, Halloween to be exact, they plan on getting married with a DC Comics-themed Wedding! Wow, we really look forward to seeing pics of that! ( Thanks Steve & Congrats on the whole "Gettin' Married" Thing. We want to wish you two the Best of Luck )

Brand-New BATMAN TOYS in Stores Now!!

The cool thing about this post is all these photos were submitted by Bat-Blog Readers, awesome! But basically, here are a few pieces of brand-new BATMAN Merchandise that are in stores now. The 1st pic might seem familiar, this is a new BATMAN Hot Wheels Ballistiks Toy Car made by Mattel. Last month or so they came out with some of these that were Batman ( black color version ) and Bane. They were inspired by THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Movie. This new one is the classic "Blue/Grey/Yellow" color combination that you see in the older comic books.


Next up is a pic from a Friend on Facebook. He saw this new BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Toy Vehicle Set and thought Bat-Blog Fans might enjoy seeing it. He's right, this thing is pretty cool. This boxed set includes 3 Batman Vehicles: The Treadator, Batcycle, and Attack Copter. The weird thing is that none of these actually appeared in the movie. But, on their own, they're kinda neat. They're also a TARGET Store Exclusive.


Next up is a Batman Figure ( also a Target Exclusive ) that has a "Halloween Holiday" theme. It's crazy!! Now I know there are a ton of collectors out there who collect Halloween items so this should sell easily to them too. Personally, I like the Jack O'Lantern Pumpkin Graphics, a lot! So, have YOU seen any new batman products worth mentioning? If so then please let us know. Remember, the Bat-Blog is all about the joys of collecting bat-stuff and sharing the love of the hobby.

KIMBERLY MOORE IS CATWOMAN! The Dark Knight Rises Movie Version













Here is a recent photo shoot from our favorite Catwoman Cosplay Model, Kimberly Moore. These were all shot recently in New York City by a very talented Photographer named Ron "Spidey" Gejon. Of course this Costume is inspired by the one worn by Anne Hathaway in the recent Batman movie, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. The variety of poses is pretty cool and we actually had a hard time trying to figure out which shots ( out of a ton of them ) that we liked the best. I mean, they're all so GREAT!

Be sure to click on them for large HD versions!

Oh yeah, we should mention that Ron has a Tumbr page website where he shares his excellent (& most recent) photography work.

DIEGO THE BAT-HOUND Enjoying a Photo of Himself Admiring Himself





YES! We just got a new fun photo from one of our favorite Batman Fans, named DIEGO The Bat-Hound!! This little guy is crazy for the Caped Crusader but we're also starting to think he might admire himself a little bit more, ha ha! 

OK, This photo up above need a little explaining so please try to follow. It all began when we posted a picture of Diego wearing his cool Batman Costume. He looked so cute and the pic is kinda funny. Then, later, when he saw this pic on the Bat-Blog he just totally admired himself online and that's another photo. Both of these pics are down below. Well, now, the photo up above is himself admiring the photo of himself admiring himself, make sense? Yeah, Diego is wacky!! But he's a cool guy for sharing these wonderful pics. We love you Diego!





New BATMAN AND ROBIN Water Globes Coming Out Soon



Here's a quick post to share a few pics of some brand-new pieces of BATMAN Merchandise and Collectibles coming out soon. What ever YOU call these things: Water Globes, Snow Domes ( I prefer "Snow Globes" ) these are pretty cool! Westland Gifts is set to come out with these & they look kinda fun. 


The ones of the Dynamic Duo will retail for around $20 each and the 2nd BATMAN one ( 3rd photo ) will be about $35. I'm not sure yet why that one costs more; but I'm guessing it will probably have a music box built into it or something. They all measure about 2 1/2-inches in diameter. Look for these to hit stores around November 2012.

But we wanna thank Armando for sharing these cool pics, they're fun and this Bat-Vehicle is very very cool.
