The Tumbler from The Dark Knight trilogy is our favorite Batmobile. After making a version of Tim Burton’s Batmobile, Minimaus Crafts shows us how he cut up soda cans, folded them, and glued them together to form a metal model of Bruce Wayne’s awesome Bat-vehicle. You can download a free template to build your own if you’re up for the challenge.
Heath Ledger’s performance as Joker in The Dark Knight is legendary. Thanks to deepfake technology, we can now see what his performance might have looked like had Heath not been wearing any makeup. GdaTyler VFX put together this video which used an AI trained on the actor’s uncovered face. It’s far from perfect, but it’s still fascinating to watch.
LEGO presents an epic recreation of the Batcave from Tim Burton’s 1992 flick Batman Returns. The 3981-piece LEGO Batcave features a detailed version of Bruce Wayne’s secret hideout inside a folding shadow box. A Batman logo cutout teases what’s inside, revealing amazing detail when opened. The set includes seven minifigs and a Burton-era Batmobile.
We always wondered what kind of cocktails Bruce Wayne and his guests were sipping at all those fancy parties. Now we know, thanks to Gotham City Cocktails, a book filled with adult beverages and tasty bar bites inspired by Batman, Joker, Poison Ivy, and other characters from the popular DC Comics series.
Willem Dafoe has played lots of baddies, but he’s never portrayed the Clown Prince of Crime, Joker. Crafty Art imagines what the sharp-featured actor might look like in the role with this impressive sculpture that took over 300 hours to create. After creating the clay bust, they cast a resin version for painting and detailing.
An Ohio man built this incredible replica of Bruce Wayne’s original 1966 Batmobile. The car is accurate down to the buttons and switches inside the cockpit, which trigger various crimefighting gadgets. And when there’s nobody behind it, its “engine” can even shoot flames. Be sure to watch him take on The Joker in his Clown Vic.
Animator, LEGO and Batman fan Idan Kotzen created this fantastic animated short celebrating some of the various Batmobiles over the years. The stop-motion and clever use of lighting give the cars a great sense of movement, as LEGO Batman gives chase to the evildoers of Gotham.
Ank Creative makes miniature cars out of plastic. We’ve seen the DeLorean they made from a cigarette lighter, now here’s another movie-inspired ride. This time we’ve got a recreation of the Batmobile from Tim Burton’s Batman, carved from black plastic scrounged from a speaker cabinet and a few other bits and bobs.
You’ll need Bruce Wayne’s black card to afford this $100K+ Batman watch, but it does look awesome. Its tourbillon movement hides beneath louvers that look like a tiny Bat-Signal. A D-ring crown on the case back keeps its profile minimal. The pièce de résistance is the aluminum Bat-Signal which doubles as a watch display.
Minimaus Crafts is an expert at making sculptures from soda cans. Watch as he takes 15 cans, some popsicle sticks, straws, and a few other household items to make a miniature replica of the Batmobile from Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman. His soda can Back to the Future DeLorean is pretty impressive too.
One of our favorite things about the ’60s Batman TV series was the celebrity cameos as the Dynamic Duo scaled a building with their grappling hook. Tommy Westphall’s Snowglobe compiled a reel of the 15 times a celeb popped out of the window. Is it just us, or does the second guy (George Cisar) sound like Peter Griffin?
“He’s ready to put the ‘goth’ back in ‘Gotham.” Screen Junkies takes on the literally darkest of the Dark Knight’s movies with an Honest Trailer for The Batman. Along the way, they critique Bruce Wayne’s detective skills, Riddler’s fashion choices, Colin Farrell’s looks, and the movie’s 2-hour 56-minute runtime.
Robert Pattinson’s take on Batman was pretty great. But in our hearts, the One True Batman will always be Adam West, whose colorful version of Gotham’s hero gave us classics like “Some days you just can’t get rid of a bomb.” Thanks to the VFX wizards at Corridor, 1960s Batman is back, deepfaked into Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman is earning rave reviews for its portrayal of The Dark Knight as a proper detective while bringing the action and visual drama we’ve come to expect. But if you attempt to bootleg a copy of the film, you’re likely to end up with something more like this Bollywood Batman flick that PakMan Memes shared.
With every Batman reboot, we look forward to a new Batmobile. The Dark Knight’s ride in Matt Reeves’ The Batman is as mean as they come. Car Throttle got up close with one of the cars used on-screen. The extreme muscle car has an insanely wide body, a 700 hp turbo V8 engine, all-wheel drive, and is built like a freaking tank.
LEGO expands its series of pixelated portraits with this three-in-one kit that lets you create images of Batman, The Joker, or Harley Quinn from the same set. Combine two or three of the 4,167-piece sets to create larger wall art pieces by DC Comics artist Jim Lee.
The latest trailer for Matt Reeves’ Batman movie not only teases The Riddler’s evil agenda but the complex relationship between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle as they blur the lines between crimefighting and vengeance. We’re looking forward to seeing what Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz bring to these iconic characters.
(PG-13: Language) James Campbell’s intense fan film imagines a cyberpunk 1980s version of Gotham City. As Penguin and Joker rule the streets, the only cure is a double whammy of angry vigilantes to put a beat-down on the baddies under the neon lights. But is Gotham big enough for these two dealers of justice?
A monochrome take on one of Batman’s baddest looks ever. Sculpted by Alterton Bizarre, this black-and-white polyresin statue stands 7.25″ tall and does a great job capturing the technical juggernaut looks of the armored Batsuit from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. Limited to 5,000 pieces.
Matt Reeves kicks off a new era for Batman, with Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne and his vigilante detective alter ego.

Artist Eduwoes shows off his unique ability to draw multiple portraits at the same time. It appears that he uses the center pen to doodle tiny versions of the characters in the shadows of Harley Quinn while controlling the outer pens to draw Joker and Batman. It’s also possible the time-lapse is concealing some fakery.
