|Official name:||The Batcave|
|First Appearance:||Batman Forever|
|Country:||United States of America|
The Batcave was Batman's underground base of operations, and secondary home where he could find solitude.
First discovering the cave system below Wayne Manor when he fell into them as a child, Bruce Wayne would return to the caves after his decision to model his crime fighting persona after a bat.
Initially only using the caves to store his equipment, he eventually began constructing a secret headquarters within the caves to better operate independantly and in secret.
In Batman Forever, the Batcave is accessed through a rotating wall in Wayne Manor's silver closet, the only room in the mansion that is kept locked. The cave can also be reached via a secret tunnel system from Bruce Wayne's office at Wayne Enterprises, through which he rides down in a capsule.
In addition to the standard housing of the computer and equipment, the cave was originally intended to play a larger role in this film. Alfred would reveal a second level to the cave, and an amnesia stricken Bruce Wayne would explore the cave to jog his memory after an attack by Two-Face. These scenes, however, were cut from the final film. The cave is also shown to have a canal inside of it, which provides access to the sea for water-based vehicles. The cave features a rotating turntable that rises out of the floor, holding the Batmobile, and a large dome-like structure where Bruce's Batsuits and gadgets are stored.
Batman & RobinEdit
The Batman & Robin incarnation of the cave features a multitude of flashing lights, mostly in neon. On the whole, this Batcave is similar to that in Batman Forever, only more garish in its decoration. A capsule containing Robin's Redbird motorcycle rises out of the floor, and a long tunnel lined with neon lights leads out of the cave. The turntable holding the Batmobile returns, but in a more elaborate fashion.
