It's time for fans to decide once and for all who tops in the DC superhero world ... by bidding on vintage Batman and Superman movie costumes.
Michael Keaton's Batsuit from the 1992 sequel "Batman Returns" and Christopher Reeve's iconic Superman costume from the eponymous 1978 film are both on the auction block. Check out the pics ... there's even an up-close shot of the original tag still intact and labeled for Reeve.
The Man of Steel "muscle tunic" has a slight edge with bidding starting at $40k ... bidding starts at $35k for the Batsuit. Fanboys and girls can bid online at Nate D. Sanders Auctions 'till January 26.
Fun fact -- Reeve refused to wear an extra muscle suit under his costume, and instead trained with famed bodybuilder and Darth Vader actor Dave Prowse to bulk up.
George Jung is a lifetime criminal who will never be able to reform, according to his probation officer ... but George's side says otherwise.
George's defense team just filed new docs asking for a very light sentence after his latest bust. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, they take issue with the probation officer's scathing testimony -- that Jung's an alcoholic, habitual liar and "no viable vocational or educational treatment programs" can change him.
But George's lawyer thinks probation is enough for a 74-year-old who's no threat to society -- and Johnny Depp's movie, "Blow" continues to give Jung a bad rap.
Jung wants his probation reins loosened too. He's asking the judge to lift the alcohol ban and allow him to travel without checking in with his probation officer.
'Star Wars' fans can rest easy ... Lucasfilm says they have no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher's performance as Princess or Gen. Leia Organa in upcoming films.
The company issued the statement to assure fans they will always strive to honor her legacy, and that does not include using digital effects. They add ... "Carrie Fisher was, is and will always be a part of the Lucasfilm family ... We are still hurting from her loss."
As we previously reported, Carrie's last film was not compromised as the result of her death ... she was completely done shooting her scenes for "Star Wars: Episode VIII."
Don't let Rihanna's casual getup fool you -- chick's rocking $5k worth of gear to go with those super thick locks.
RiRi was leaving her NYC apartment to head to the set of "Ocean's Eight." She's co-starring with Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock -- none of whom will be wearing anything this dope. Her Vetements hoodie, Gucci socks and Louis Vuitton backpack don't come cheap. We're guessing the hairstyle's for her character.
We know what you're thinking -- that's a lot o' leg for a winter day, but temps hit the 60s there Thursday.
10:48 AM PT -- TMZ has learned Mike Vitar has been placed on an unpaid 6 month suspension from the Fire Dept.
'Sandlot' star Mike Vitar won't be doing hard time for the near-fatal Halloween attack on a college grad student.
Vitar, now a firefighter, took a deal ... pleading no contest to misdemeanor battery. He and 2 other firefighters involved were initially facing 4 years in prison for felony assault.
Vitar will have to complete 90 days of community service and take weekly anger management classes for a year. He also has to pay a $2,000 fine and TBD amount of restitution to the victim ... which will be determined in a hearing next month.
The victim was beaten so badly his pulse stopped and the same firefighters who attacked him had to revive him.
One of the firefighters is still fighting the charges.
Vivica A. Fox pissed off the director and producer who made her male stripper reality show possible -- Jean-Claude LaMarre is cutting ties with her after she said gay men aren't welcome at the strip shows.
Jean-Claude put Vivica in his movie, "Chocolate City" ... which led to her spinning off 'Black Magic' into a TV show. You'll recall, she was promoting the show last week on "The Breakfast Club" when she strongly objected to the suggestion gays were coming out to see her strippers.
As she put it ... "Hell no!"
Now LaMarre tells TMZ ... "The comments were out of order, and it does not represent our attitudes toward the LGBT community. All are welcomed." He added, "Vivica speaks for herself not the business or the show."
LaMarre will remain an Executive Producer on the reality show, and made it clear he wants 'Black Magic' to succeed -- he just doesn't want to work with Vivica anymore.
Michael Keatonbeat himself down for saying "Hidden Fences" instead of "Hidden Figures" while presenting at the Golden Globes ... but he was dripping in sarcasm.
We got Keaton outside Madeo in West Hollywood after the Globes, and he apologized for the flub he made while presenting a best supporting actress award. Truth is, he's not the only one who combined "Fences" and "Hidden Figures" during the evening.
So, Michael was shocked when we told him his mistake was going viral. The tone of his reaction is pretty clear: Get a life, folks.
