The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Chris Nolan actually had a working Batpod – Batman's chunky-wheeled bike – made for 2008's The Dark Knight, and it gets a second outing in this year's sequel. Although The Dark Knight's truck-vs-Batpod showdown was cool, The Dark Knight Rises pits the Batpod against the whole Gotham Police Department – and adds some new tricks to the bike's repertoire. As Selina Kyle discovers, it can now perform a spectacular slide by – get this – rolling its wheels sideways. Even though Chris Nolan insists on realism in his films, we doubt the real-life Batpod can do that.
