In this NEW Trailer Video for the BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY Video Game we get to see a promo-clip featuring MR. FREEZE in action, AWESOME!


OK, Just to be clear, this is not Anne Hathaway as Catwoman but her stunt double. But regardless the video is still pretty cool because we not only get to see some of the filming of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES in Pittsburgh, but we get a good view of the Costume and the Bat-Pod Motorcycle!

Let's Celebrate BATMAN-INSPIRED Creativity!

Here at the Bat-Blog we love it when Batman Fans get creative & use their inspiration of the character as a means to create ART! Here are 2 great examples: The 1st photo is a sculpture bust made by our friend Pete. It's in the early stages, but it will be used to make a latex mask bat-cowl. Now the funny thing is that Pete told me this was going to be a "Keaton BATMAN Movie" version, and he didn't even need to say that. I mean, just look at it, IT IS TOTALLY Michael Keaton!

Next up is a Bat-Vehicle I saw awhile back on eBay. It's a Custom Golf Cart designed to look like the Tumbler Batmobile from the recent Batman movies. Now, I don't play golf, but I would completely love to own this cool toy! ( Hint, Hint: My birthday is in January, ha! )

Brand-New 1966 BATMAN TV SHOW 45th Anniversary Art Print Poster!

Well, it looks like Famed Pop Artist Christopher Franchi has done it again! He has just released a brand new Art Print that celebrates the 45th Anniversary of the 1966 BATMAN TV SHOW. The details are amazing & it features: Batman ( Adam West ), Robin the Boy Wonder ( Burt Ward ), The Joker ( Cesar Romero ), Catwoman ( Lee Merriwether ), The Penguin ( Burgess Meredith ), The Riddler ( Frank Gorshin ), and even the Classic George Barris Custom 1966 Batmobile Car! This is a High-Quality Art Print, Full-Color, measuring about 24" X 36". It will also be very limited to only 66 prints available. For more information, click HERE!



Oh yeah, over the last few days the Internet has been going completely goo-goo with photos of the latest Bat-Vehicle, the BATWING! Personally I think it will be more of a Helicopter-Type Vehicle ( They will add the roto-blades during post production ) than a Jet Plane. We'll have to wait and see, ha! In the mean time here's some very excellent videos showing the details of Batman's Brand-New BATWING flyng through Pittsburgh's city streets!

We totally love it when Bat-Blog Fans share their personal photos that show how they completely love the Batman character. To me, that's what this site is all about! So, here we go! The 1st two pics are from our friend Christopher's Wedding. Yes, a Wedding Cake with Batman & Batgirl Toy Figures as the toppers... How cool is that?! This cake is beautiful.

Then, here's a wonderful photo taken by our friend Autumn right after finishing her Bat-Cake. This was a Birthday Cake for an extremely lucky person. Plus, I think she did an amazing job on it, the logo looks awesome! ( Thanks to everyone who shared pics )

Random BATMAN ARKHAM CITY Video Game News

Just a quick post to share a few bits of BATMAN ARKHAM CITY Video Game news. First, in the UK, you'll be able to find this new XBOX 360 Magazine with The Joker on the cover. Then, here's another beautiful photo of the BATMAN ARKHAM CITY Billboard that was seen at this year's 2011 San Diego Comic Con.

Also, we have news on some brand-new "Foreign Exclusives".

We have already been hearing about all the Foreign "Collectors Editions" with different Batman SKINS. Now there's news of EXCLUSIVE STEELBOOK Editions in other countries. The 1st two to surface ( and there will be many more probably, ha! ) is the UK Store SHOPTO & the Australian Video Game Store EB GAMES. For the UK edition they will have Two-Face on the back cover. Then, the Aussies will have the Joker ( I like the Joker one better ). It looks like you also get a cool 1970's Batman Skin plus a few other bonuses in each one. But, for the price, so far I'm thinking the "Collector Edition" would be better because you get the Batman Statue. These just have a "steelbook" case. I don't know, it's really too early to tell. I think we all need to see the final releases on all this stuff. Please stay tuned to the Bat-Blog.Com for more future news. Also, just a friendly warning. If you do buy any of the "Foreign" stuff, Please be sure to ask the retailer if these discs will work on "American" Game Consoles.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Video - Joseph Gordon-Levitt Filming in Pittsburgh & Some Tumbler Batmobile Scenes


OK, here are 2 pretty interesting "Dark Knight Rises" videos that have surfaced lately. One shows the Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt Filming Scene in a snow-covered Gotham City. Basically, he's walking around with a gas can & you can also see the Tumbler Batmobile driving around.

In the next video we get to see the Tumbler Batmobile and a HEMTT Military Truck Driving on a Snow Covered Street! WOO HOO! Ok, it's really not that exciting, no action, just moving down the street. but this 2nd vehicle is pretty cool. I mean, it looks EVIL!

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Video - Hear The Voice of Actor Tom Hardy as BANE!!

SPOILER ALERT!! Check out this video showing some of the filming for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES at Heinz Field. Here's what the guy making the video said, "After Bane [Tom Hardy] blows up the football field when 86 of the Gotham Rogues [Hines Ward] runs to make a touchdown after the kick off [this is what we were told was going on during filming] he comes out to address and strike fear in Gotham City [us]. The raised part you see is whats suppose to be left of the football field. He comes out and pulls the microphone from the dead? Ref [which is just a dummy] on the ground outside the tunnel where he comes out with his thugs and someone he has prisoner. He also drags out some big crazy device that's supposedly the means of our destruction..."

Exclusive 1966 BATMAN MOVIE WALLPAPER - Illustration Art By Christopher Franchi

The Bat-Blog was recently blessed with a preview of a brand-new illustration by famed Graphic Designer Christopher Franchi. He's the Art Director for Metaluna 5 Media, which handles a lot of licensed properties like: KISS, Bettie Page, Alice Cooper, Star Trek, Superman, Spawn, Peanuts, Evil Dead, Betty Boop and the list goes on & on. Here is an EXCLUSIVE & Super-Awesome 1966 BATMAN WALLPAPER Chris created for the BAT-BLOG! Well, he did all the artwork & I put the Bat-Blog Logo on it, ha! Now, of course, this image relates to the 1960's BATMAN MOVIE because it shows Lee Merriwether as Catwoman. Plus, it's got the other Super-Evil Villains: The Joker ( Cesar Romero ), The Penguin ( Burgess Meredith ), The Riddler ( Frank Gorshin ), and the Hero himself, BATMAN ( Adam West )! The artwork is extremely amazing! The illustrations were all done on Cold-Press Art Board with Gouache and Colored Pencil. Then, they were scanned and assembled digitally. I like how each character has their own colored-outline, to make them sort of pop-off the page. There is also that "light ray" effect that's pretty freakin' cool!! ( Thanks Christopher, I know everybody is going to totally love this incredible Bat-Art!! )

OK, for now, this is sort of a rumor I have not been able to 100% confirm but supposedly Japan will have a completely different Batman Statue inside their Japanese retail version of the BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY Collector's Edition Video Game. We have all seen the Statue for the USA & Europe versions, it's pictured on the left. On the right side might be the one for Japan. It's basically the same thing, just more colorized. It also looks a lot more realistically detailed. But hey, please stay tuned to the Bat-Blog & if we get more information on this then we'll report it.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Batman Movie - DESKTOP WALLPAPERS of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle ( Catwoman )

Warner Bros today "leaked out" some official photos of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle ( Catwoman ) from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Batman Movie. She's wearing a sleek black "Super Spy" High-Tech Outfit & I think it has more to do with her in her "Selina Kyle" Persona than as Catwoman, the Villain. It looks like she is stealing the BAT-POD Motorcycle Prototype from Gotham University! But anyway, to celebrate we have taken the best high-resolution photo we could find & made these two ANNE HATHAWAY DESKTOP WALLPAPERS, enjoy!
