No one knows who Batman really is.
But when he arrests you and takes you to the police station, you know you're in trouble.
No, I haven't been reading comics or feasting on old episodes of Adam West and Burt Ward.
I've been reading the Guardian, which informs me that CCTV images released by police in West Yorkshire, England, reveal that a caped crusader marched a wanted man into a police station and handed him over to the authorities.
There is no evidence of there having been a struggle. Just as there is no evidence of a … Read more
Take equal parts Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, and Christian Bale. Import head shots into Photoshop. Add a dash of Sqirlz Morph morphing software. Mix well. Enjoy your new Bruce Wayne!
Redditor morphinapg is on a tear, combining multiple actors into single images. So far, the intrepid graphic artist has tackled Batman, Superman, James Bond, and Doctor Who.
I have to say, this new Bruce Wayne looks pretty good. He could be a real person, and I could even see him getting cast in some Batman reboot down the line.… Read more
It seemed, to some at least, that the maps app had been created after a very drunken lunch between Siri and the Joker.
What a coincidence, then, that a film has emerged of "Batman" losing his way because of his new iPhone 5.
While Siri attempts to direct him as best she can, given her seeming predilection for a tincture at any time of day, … Read more
The Batmobile (in all of its various incarnations) is probably as famous as the Batman who pilots it. However, if you should happen to find yourself in New York this week (perhaps for some sort of comic book convention), you'll be able to get a peek at the car that Kia Motors would like to see as the Caped Crusader's next set of wheels: a top-of-the-line Kia Optima SX Limited. Well, they at least got the color right.
Personally, I'd like to think that if Batman were to drive a front-wheel-drive, Korean sports car, he'd be … Read more

Leaked from today's 404 episode:
Crazy tape on Olympians: Does it work?
Fair or foul? Experts split over whether Pistorius has advantage.
World records set despite ban on high-tech suits.
Are humans or technology breaking Olympic records?
Not all home theaters are created equal, and the following $2 million Dark Knight-themed setup is in a different league altogether.

Who knew action figures could be so expressive? The trailer for a fan-made Batman film called "Batman: Dark Knightfall" uses toys to create a dark battle between Gotham's forces of good and the Joker's evil minions.
Everything from the lighting to the music to the movement of the figures is full of moody, broody atmosphere. What makes this unusual stop-motion project work is the super-realistic action figures. The 12-inch figures made by Hot Toys turn the trailer into a creepy romp through the Uncanny Valley.… Read more
YouTube is now encouraging video uploaders to use their real names. Is this the first sign of what's to come? Will our anonymity on YouTube become a thing of the past?
For now, users still have the option to opt out of disclosing their true identity, but a world in which YouTube videos are no longer anonymously uploaded appears much closer to reality than ever before. Of course we've seen things like this before. Most of us seem to have no problem giving away our personal information to Facebook, right? … Read more
