EXCLUSIVE: The Truth About The Bat Cart Revealed

Somewhere deep on the Warner Brothers lot, there is a real life Lucius Fox. Sure, you know Lucius Fox, he's Batman's tech guy, the Q to his James Bond if you will. In "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" he is portrayed by Hollywood's resident wise-man Morgan Freeman. But unless Morgan Freeman has a hobby of making awesome vehicles, he cannot compare to director Ray Griggs, the real life mastermind behind the Batmobile inspired Golf Cart that took Gotham (and the internet) by storm last week.

Griggs is a writer, director, and producer who is a huge Batman and Superman fan. His love of the Dark Knight lead him to work with designer Marc Irvin of Marc's Creature Company on a dream golf cart that keeps the Warner Brothers lot free of villains and other nefarious evil doers. Check out a video on the design and specs of the cart below.

Griggs is currently hard at work in pre-production on the adaptation of the beloved children's book "The Wind and The Willows," which is being made down in New Zealand with some of the creative masterminds at WETA workshop. You can view a trailer for the film here
