Cars 3 Batmobile Cameos

The universe in which Pixar’s animated franchise Cars exists is already confusing enough, and it was almost expanded to be even more perplexing in Cars 3 with several cameos inspired by a certain DC Comics superhero.

In a recent interview, director Brian Fee explained that a different version of Cars 3 almost saw Lightning McQueen end up in Los Angeles at a Hollywood party that would have been full of movie stars, including two different Batmobiles. That version of the story didn’t survive, but if it did, the existence of Batmobiles in the Cars universe would have been supremely strange.

Elfman returns…to superhero movies.

Danny Elfman, the composer for classic superhero movies like Tim Burton’s Batman and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, has signed on to score Justice League. This may throw a wrench in Elfman’s recently announced plans to score smaller films for $1 — I’m pretty sure Warner Bros. will pay him a little bit more than that, at least.

Batman and Robin

Batman & Robin is an objectively terrible movie, possibly still the worst superhero movie ever made. But it’s been 20 years now…can’t we all just relax?

It’s two decades later and director Joel Schumacher is still apologizing for the garish, neon-soaked nightmare that is Batman & Robin. And while I’m willing to forgive him on some things — the ice puns are unironically great — those bat nipples still baffle me and presumably everyone else. And Schumacher realizes this, explaining the thought process that led to him creating those infamous rubber nipples. And on that front, he’s not sorry.
