Batmobile Parade Spans 50 Years and 5 Epic Models

Let a parade of Batmobiles brighten up your Monday.

A quintet of Batmobiles has been spotted in procession on YouTube. The foursome range from the vintage 1960s TV show edition to the current, mighty Tumbler from the yet-to-be released The Dark Night Rises film.

The first model is from the popular 1960s Batman TV show, starring Adam West as the Caped Crusader. It was based on a concept car built by Ford back in '55 called the Lincoln Futura. The second is the version from the 1989 Batman and 1992 Batman Returns film, with Danny DeVito starring as the Penguin and Michael Keaton playing the role of Batman. The third was from Batman Forever and the fourth was from Batman and Robin. George Clooney as Batman and Arnold Schwarzenegger playing the role of Mr. Freeze was just too much and you have to admit, the wing at the wheel is just too much.

The fifth is the awesome Tumbler (or is it Tumblr?) from the new Batman film directed by Christopher Nolan. The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters in July.
