We finally know how much Fiat Chrysler's unholy alchemy experiment, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, costs: $US85,000 ($113,673).

What's your favourite Batmobile? They all have their own charm, don't they? The Tumbler was brute force bicep flexing whilst kissing bad arse. The 60's Batmobile was fanciful and fun and totally goofy but cool in all the right ways. But my favourite is probably the Batmobile from the Tim Burton movies.

Here's a neat infographic-type, sort of poster illustration of 100 famous costumes from characters in movies, television and video games. It's fun to see the outfits that are instantly recognisable (superheroes, Star Wars, etc) against those that require a little memory refreshment (The Breakfast Club, Rebel Without a Cause, etc).

ComicsAlliance has published a comprehensive future timeline of all the superhero movies that are slated to be released over the next six years. It's a list of all the confirmed ones, too -- it's still missing "one or two movies" from Marvel in 2019, apparently -- and of course dates may change -- but this is pretty much a locked-down list of all the awesome movies that you'll want to go and see for the next few years.
