Can't quite wait for The Dark Knight Rises? You may have to settle for checking out a part of the movie in person ahead of its July 20th release date. The Tumbler, the tank-like incarnation of the Batmobile seen in Christopher Nolan's trilogy of Batman movies, is going on tour around the US over the next couple of months. From photos posted on the Tumbler Tour blog (hosted at, er, Tumblr) it doesn't look like you'll be able to ride in it or even touch it, but it might be as close as Bat-fans get to scratching their Dark Knight itch.
