Delaware-based Batman fanatic Chris Weir created an incredible real-life Batcave in his basement that impresses many people, including his family. Chris spent over 2 years and $120,000 putting it all together. His underground secret lair comes equipped with a hidden door (activated by a shiny red button), an impressive display of Batman collectibles and (of course) a decked out home theater that rocks a life-size Batman suit used in The Dark Knight films.
The batcave was so important to Chris, that while shopping for a home, the deciding factor was whether or not it had room for the batcave he dreamed of building. Chris’ wife Joanna was given two options, one being their current home.
“She was a little apprehensive at first,” he said. “But then she came around and said as long as I could pay the mortgage, I could do it,” Chris said. Chris’ infatuation with Batman began age three when he played “Batman and Robin” in his yard with his uncle.
