Diehard Fan Builds 2 Million Dollar Batcave
You will require years of training and nerves of steel if you want to become Batman, but to get your very own batcave all you need is $2 million of disposable income.
A diehard Batman fan is having a home theatre constructed which will resemble the Dark Knight's cave. The cave is being built by Elite Home Theater Seating and is decked with a batcomputer, Tumbler, cape and cowl, secret passages, sound effects, gargoyles, a 180 inch screen, and even a Bat-themed elevator for those urgent situation when the stairs just wont do.
The following images are a CGI mock-up of what the cave will finally look like.
Here is a shot with the bookcases open, revealing the Batmobile in a hidden secret room, complete with its own tunnel exit.
And if you thought most of these are just dummy models, then think again! There is also a separate study which acts as the entrance to the hidden cinema. The study, complete with a stately grandfather clock, is flanked by bookshelves upon which sits a bust of William Shakespeare, the head of which must be turned clockwise to swing open the hidden door behind the grandfather clock. This is the entrance to the elevator. A real fingerprint scan is also required to gain access to the elevator.
Beyond this, you need to press a Batsymbol button to begin the descent into the cave while flashing lights and graphics indicate your body is being scanned. Once you have been identified as rightful visitors, a female robotic voice will announce "Security Clearance Granted". Inside there are 6 bat-suits on display and a life-size replica of the Tumbler.
Elite HTS executive Bobby Bala told Daily Mail, "The Dark Knight themed custom home theater was actually a design concept we did free of charge for one of our previous clients, mainly just for fun. Personally, I'm a huge Batman fan and with a background in CG animation, we were able to finish up the design within a couple weeks."
