Batman's Tumbler and Bat-pod Cycle on National Tour

Posted on Monday, July 7th, 2008 4:33 PM by Scott Jentsch

When Batman Begins was released in theaters in 2005, fans were treated to a very different version of the superhero, and they were also treated to a new Batmobile, the tumbler.

Now, with The Dark Knight being released next Friday, fans will get another cool ride to watch in action, the Bat-pod; a motorcycle the likes of which even the guys from Orange County Choppers haven't created:


Both vehicles are on display on a national tour that includes the following cities:

  • Phoenix
  • Denver
  • St. Louis
  • Cleveland
  • Kansas City
  • Cincinnati
  • Washington. DC
  • Philadelphia
  • Boston
  • Toronto
  • Niagara Falls, NY
  • New York City (@ world premiere on 7/14)
  • Chicago (@ Chicago Int'l Film Festival on 7/16)
  • Los Angeles (@ ArcLight Cinemas on opening day)

The cycle will be on all the stops, but the tumbler will only be seen in seven of the cities, according to everything I could find. Unfortunately, the details are very sketchy, and I couldn't even find out any details of when and exactly where these locations were (New York, Boston, and Chicago are big cities!).

I was able to find some reports that the tour stopped in Cleveland, Ohio this past weekend. WTAM 1100 has a short article and some video. Slashfilm.com has some photos from the exhibit at a press day in Hollywood before the tour.

If I can find more details about dates and locations, I'll update this post. If you have information to share, please use the Feedback Form and let us know!
