R&B singer Ciara’s 30th birthday was Sunday, and to celebrate, her boyfriend Russell Wilson threw her a party. The couple dressed up as Catwoman and Batman, and Wilson strengthened the theory that it’s incredibly difficult to not look like a dork in a full Batman costume. (Sure, you feel cool, and that’s all that…
Tyson Fury, a British boxer who is set to get his face punched off by Wladimir Klitschko, thought it would be cool to dress up like Batman for the pre-fight press conference and wrassle with another guy who dressed up like the Joker.
As the title suggests, the upcoming stupid-ass movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will feature Batman and Superman opposing each other, at least for a while, before they inevitably come together to form what will become the Justice League of America. I do not follow this garbage film franchise, because it is…

Wonder Woman! Lex Luthor! Kryptonite! A Robin uniform hanging in the Batcave? Strange soldiers with Superman’s “S” symbol?! A WWII-looking Batman!?! This new Batman V. Superman footage comes straight from Comic-Con, and you’re just going to have to see it for yourself.
With a woman taking on the mantle of Thor and a new, heavily armored Batman in Gotham, the idea of a “replacement hero” — where a new character is introduced to take up a legacy hero’s name — is back in style. But more often than not, these shake-ups don’t workout. Here’s eight of the weirdest and worst replacements.
Lance McCullers is on the mound making his major league debut tonight for the Astros, and he’s doing it in an especially odd choice of footwear: Batman cleats. We’re not sure if this will incur a fine from MLB, but we hope the 2012 first-rounder kept some of his $2.5m signing bonus just to be sure.
From The Dark Knight Returns to the recent trailer for Batman v. Superman to even the latest comics, Batman has a long history of evening the odds through a power suit. Here’s the complete rundown of all the how and whys in those times Batman has had to upgrade to power armor.

We just had our first thundering look at Batman v. Superman, and it really did give the feeling of a confrontation between demigods. Plus we saw our first look at Wonder Woman's costume! And we saw the Trinity, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, on stage together.
It's tough to build a great fantasy world without a map—there's a reason why the Game of Thrones credits are basically a Google Earth flyover—and comic book worlds are no exception.
