Breaking News: Batkid Comes To The Rescue Of San Francisco, I Mean, Gotham City!

Breaking News: Batkid Comes To The Rescue Of San Francisco, I Mean, Gotham!

Right now, as I type this post, Gotham City, aka San Francisco for the rest of the day, is under siege — but don’t worry, because BATKID IS THERE to save the day! A couple weeks ago, we told you about Miles, a five-year-old currently in remission from leukemia, whose dream was to be Batman for a day. And the Make-A-Wish Foundation has come through on their promise to make exactly that happen for Miles, thanks to the hundreds of Bay Area volunteers who came out today to turn SF into Gotham for the day. According to this mock cover of the Gotham City Chronicle (put out by the San Francisco Chronicle, just for today), Batkid has already apprehended the Penguin and saved a damsel in distress from the Riddler — and he’s not done yet! After the jump, check out the full version of the Gotham City Chronicle‘s front page — and tune into the livestream of today’s Batkid adventures at the link. So awesome.

Miles, a 5-year-old boy fighting leukemia, is going to get the surprise of a lifetime on November 15th. The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the city of San Francisco are teaming up to transform the Bay Area into Gotham City. But wait — it gets more touching. Guess who’s going to be the superhero of the day? That’s right. Miles will play Batman. His day will begin with a cruise in THE Batmobile. Then, off to perform feats of derring-do! Miles will capture a robber, rescue a damsel in distress and receive his accolades from the entire town.

OK, I’m tearing just imagining this. After the jump, a full description of Miles’ dream come true.  Keep reading »

Forever 21′s Batman And Catwoman Collection Has Me Conflicted

Forever 21's Batman And Catwoman Collection Has Me Conflicted

On the one hand, I’m not the hugest fan of Forever 21. As a company they’ve a history of things like (allegedly) ripping off designers and (allegedly) mistreating workers. And when I bought things from them back in my high school days they always fell apart. On the other hand: I really like that pencil skirt, and some of the sweaters are decidedly nice and snuggly-looking. I’m just going to wistfully look at some of the items in the company’s new Bats & Cats collection and wish someone else made them, but you can decide for yourself. Read more on The Mary Sue…

Man Dressed As Batman Delivers Criminal To Yorkshire Police Department

Some guys have a hero complex. Others, have a superhero complex. Take the mysterious tights-clad man who walked into the Yorkshire Police Department last week to deliver a bad guy to officers by the scruff of his neck. Wearing a full Batman costume, the man identified himself only as Bruce Wayne.

Telling the cops, “I’ve got this one for you,” the faux-Batman escorted his catch to the quaintly-named police helpdesk at Trafalgar House. According to a police report, the man was then arrested for burglary, fraud and breach of a court order. He was detained at the station overnight and then sent to a nearby precinct where he was booked on additional charges.

As for Batman, well, nobody knows what’s become of him. Said the report, “The Batman outfit was a normal fancy dress costume and whoever had decided to put it on knew the suspect was wanted by police.” My bet’s on him holing up at Wayne Manor. [Telegraph]

Style Inspiration: Selina Kyle In “The Dark Knight Rises”

I wasn’t sure about Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman), but after seeing “The Dark Knight Rises” this weekend, I am totally on board. Anne’s Selina was brilliant, strong, complex, and clever–the perfect match for Batman as both an enemy and a love interest. Not to mention the fact that Selina Kyle has maaaaad style. I’m dying to bring some edgy Catwoman vibes into my wardrobe. You too? Check out the shopping details, after the jump! Keep reading »

Dear Batman Goatee Guy,

You are either a really serious Batman fan or have an excellent sense of humor or both. You’re handy with a razor and possess the ability to grow thick, lustrous facial hair. I’m not sure what else I could ever want in a man. Do you have a date for the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” yet? Because I am definitely available. [Buzzfeed]

Texas Town Makes Batman Boy’s Dreams Come True

Watch Video

All young leukemia sufferer Kye wanted was to get to play his favorite comic book character Batman. So the town of Arlington, Texas, got together and put together an adventure for Kye. Kye and his team of do-gooders encountered rascally criminals like The Joker and The Riddler, detonated “bombs” and recovered stolen money. The day ended with a ceremony at City Hall where Kye was given a key to the city.

Apparently, when most of us take off for the holidays to hang out with our families, the internet’s cat population takes over. Witness this trailer for the new film “The Dark Knight: Rises” — the latest in the Batman series — as performed by cats. Ironically, incredibly, the role of Catwoman (as played in the actual movie by Anne Hathaway) is played by a dog. [Comic Book Movie]

Anne Hathaway As Catwoman? 8 Things You Didn’t Know About The Iconic Villainess

Yesterday, we told you that Anne Hathaway will be trading in her beige sequins for black latex, playing Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Anne seems like good fit to play Catwoman, whose unmasked name is (usually) Selina Kitt Kyle. Since Anne will soon be the sixth actress to portray the iconic role, here’s a look back at the history of Catwoman, both on the page and the screen. Keep reading »
