Bats Singing The Batman Theme Tune!

Because you’ve always wondered what it would sound like, here is the Batman theme tune as sung by some friendly bats (with a little help from a sampler and a keyboard).

As you probably know, bats produce sounds that our human cloth ears can’t pick up so to make this whole utterly random thing possible, those ultrasounds were digitally reduced to audible frequencies and then assigned keys on a keyboard. Using this keyboard, Ulrich Seidel then played the 1966 Batman theme tune. The interesting footage assigned to our singing bats was put together by Sándor Seuntjens using clips from the 1966 Batman film and the animated television series with National Geographic providing the actual bat footage!

New Batman: Arkham Orgins Trailer Released

A new trailer  for the video game Batman: Arkham Origins was just released this week. Much like the already released trailer, we get a look into what this game will entail; however, unlike the last one, this time we get the chance to see a fair amount of game play going on. The game play is similar to both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, which this game serves as a prequel to, and some gadgets that disappeared after Asylum will be making a return in this one as well.Continue Reading

Facial Hair For Superheroes: The Awesome Batman Mustache!

Check out this particularly awesome Batman Mustache which has been styled to resemble the caped crusader’s iconic symbol!

What makes it even better for me, is the fact that the dude sporting the stylish superhero tash, looks a teeny weeny bit like Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Maybe, by wearing this heroic mustache, he’s preparing for that step into Christian Bale’s big boy Batman boots!

Unfortunately we don’t know anything about the identity of the marvelous mustache-wearing dude, but I guess that’s the way it should be what with Batman’s top secret identity and all that!

John Doe” (Joker)

Check out this brilliant series entitled “Usual Suspects” by Canadian artist Jason Mark aka Jempix. Jempix has taken Gotham’s most notorious villains and given them a 1920s style mugshot makeover.

The collection features John Doe aka the Joker, who was never actually named in the Batman stories, Harvey Dent aka Two Face, the portly Oswald Cobblepot aka Penguin and Victor Fries aka Mr. Freeze. We can think of a couple of others that we’d like to see teleported into the 1920s – I for one am curious as to what he’d do to Bane’s mask to make it appear as though it is from that era!
Jempix was inspired to create the “Usual Suspects” from the mugshots of 1920s Australian criminals that has been doing the rounds on the internet of late. Continue Reading

Bradford’s Batman Failed At Being A Superhero – Now Caught Trying To Be A Super Villain

Bradford-Batman
Back in March, Britain went a teeny bit giddy because for a little while, we thought we had our very own Batman! A man, dressed in a Batman costume dropped a wanted man into a Bradford police station and then vanished into the dead of the night.

A media frenzy ensued as everyone tried to find out the identity of our caped do-gooder, the bookies were even taking bets as to which celebrity might be lurking behind the mask. Eventually however, when the truth did emerge (a day or so later) it turned out to be bitterly disappointing. Continue Reading

Batman Gets His Own Back On Superman!

Batman-graffiti
Of all the superheroes, Batman’s always been always been amongst the most reluctant to play nicely with the other special beings. His isolationist carry on often means he is left battling evil all on his lonesome, but we have it on good authority that that is just how he likes it.

This photograph suggests that Batman might be feeling a little bit neglected about all the fuss Superman’s getting at the moment, what with the imminent release of the Man of Steel blockbuster. And it’s made him a little bit pissy!! Continue Reading
