There’s a new, longer ’60s Batman XXX porn trailer out which finally gives us a first, shockingly SFW work look at the heroes and villains. Not that the original costumes were Stan Winston quality or anything, but Vivid certainly recreated them pretty much perfectly; I’m pretty sure the dude playing the Joker actually has a mustache, just like Cesar Romero did, since he famously refused to shave it to play the role. Unfortunately, even porn star Tori Black isn’t as sexy as ’60s Julie Newmar — who is, really? — but Lexi Belle as Batgirl has brought up a lot of memories of me watching the ’60s Batman as a kid in general and watching Yvonne Craig in that red wig in specific. Vivid even apparently bought or borrowed one of the surviving ’60s
Batmobiles, which is hilariously fantastic. That’s commitment, my friends. But man, I still really hope they don’t add the traditional “Pow!” sound effects to the fucking. Thanks to everyone who sent in the tip.

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
