The History of the Batmobile: A Free Documentary

In 2012, Roko Bel­ic direct­ed an hour-long doc­u­men­tary on The Bat­mo­bile. Orig­i­nal­ly released on The Dark Knight Ris­es (2012) blu-ray, the film explores the his­to­ry and evo­lu­tion of the Bat­mo­bile in com­ic books, TV and movies. And it fea­tures “notable Bat­man movie direc­tors includ­ing Chris Nolan, Joel Schu­mach­er and Tim Bur­ton, as well as actors Chris­t­ian Bale from The Dark Knight and Adam West from the 1960s Bat­man series.” Warn­er Bros. Enter­tain­ment has made the film avail­able on YouTube. Watch it above. Or find it list­ed in our col­lec­tion Free Doc­u­men­taries, a sub­set of meta­col­lec­tion, 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Clas­sics, Indies, Noir, West­erns, Doc­u­men­taries & More.
