A ridiculously rich guy actually built Bruce Wayne’s underground Batcave – and it’s amazing

Readers… some things in life just aren’t fair. Case in point: some obnoxiously wealthy guy in Australia has a Batcave and you don’t.

Australian architectural firm Molecule recently posted about a special undertaking it completed not long ago. The firm’s client, who was not named in the post, asked it to reproduce Bruce Wayne’s underground garage from The Dark Knight series under his own home, while ensuring that the work avoided disturbing his home’s “heritage quality and evident beauty.”

This is the film that will open up DC’s own movie universe, but going forward, Batman may play an even larger role than we’d previously assumed. More →

Now we know what the Joker will look like in ‘Suicide Squad’ this summer

Suicide Squad is another movie comic book fans should have on their list for next year. Supposed to launch in August 2016, the film brings together a band of villains from various DC titles, including Batman’s most popular bad guy, the Joker. A trailer has yet to be released for the movie, so we’re yet to see how any of the villains in it look like. But as CNET reports, we now get to at least look at Jared Leto in character. More →

Gorgeous Batman: Arkham Knight trailer shows off Robin, Catwoman and Nightwing gameplay

One of the best things about the Batman Arkham series is the option to play as characters other than Batman himself. In Arkham Asylum, the Joker was playable in a limited capacity for a few downloadable challenge maps, but Rocksteady Studios took the concept a step further in Arkham City by letting the player control Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing.

Dark Knight teardown reveals how much it costs to be Batman

Dark Knight Annual Cost

It’s a good thing that Bruce Wayne is so filthy rich because otherwise, his vigilante heroics would send him to the poor house. The Centives economics blog, run by econ students at Lehigh University, has been trying to figure out what it might cost for a real-life Wayne to run around in a giant bat costume every year, and has concluded that he probably pays $2.8 million annually, including $2 million for graphite helmets, $262,800 for Alfred’s salary and $74,880 a year for personal training, among other things. Although one has to wonder, given Batman’s effectiveness at fighting crime relative to the Gotham police force, why the city isn’t providing him with subsidies of some kind of help offset his personal expenses.
