In honor of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Google Maps is allowing you to explore the wonders of the Batcave.
In the new blockbuster, record-setting movie the Batcave gets a major facelift with some modern tweaks. In this Batman world it’s located in the woods on the grounds of Wayne Manor with access through a secret passage in a lake.
To get a closer look at Batman’s lair open your Google Maps app and search for “Bruce Wayne’s Residence.” It’ll automatically bring you to the location on Joslyn Road in Michigan. Go figure, apparently Gotham is in Michigan.
Once you’ve located it, click on the picture of the lakeside residence labeled “See inside.” You’ll find yourself standing in Bruce Wayne’s lakeside residence as seen in the movie. No, he doesn’t live in Wayne Manor in the movie and no, we have no idea what happened to the manor.
Ok, now click on the hall leading to what looks like another room. You’re now in a creepy tunnel. One more click and you’ll find yourself in the Batcave looking at the movie’s slick version of the Batmobile.
Now go explore. You can walk around both levels filled with gadgets, computers and even Robin’s costume which has been vandalized by the Joker.
While it looked cool in the movie you can really appreciate the awesome detail with this Google tour.
Make sure to check out some of the funny reviews left by people claiming to have visited with Bruce Wayne at his residence or in the Batcave.
One user expressed her faux-irritation, “Usually I don’t complain about my neighbors but I haven’t slept for months…I understand that he lost his parents at a very young age…but this is ridiculous.”
Or the user who gave a 1-star review stating, “You’d think a billionaire could afford some heating. And an exterminator, there’s bat droppings everywhere.”
