It’s the car that we all want to own. Even those who don’t drive just want to sit in the leathery seats and bask the black (and really really dark grey,) whispering under the shaky breathes “I’m Batman.” Next to Knightrider and James Bond’s Bentleys, The Batmobile is the most intense piece of vehicular beauty that has my palms sweating just writing about this. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy reinvented the machinery by adapting it brilliantly and adding neat features like its ability to rolly-polly away from its enemies. And now with Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice being the hot topic of DC’s movie franchise, one luckily Detroitian had snapped this glimpse of the new Batmobile and caused furore across the World Wide Web. Instagram user amacro13 had tongues wagging with his sneaky snap (below)
And now Synder has been forced to play a hand and submit an official look at the Batmobile (left.) It's intense, black and has lots of gadgets. It definitely has the flare of what Snyder is trying to capture; doom, gloom and war. Would it hurt to have just a splash of colour? We can say one thing, Supes is going to be totally jealous of this.
What do you think of this Batmobile? Is Batman overcompensating for something (like his lack of guns)?
Batman vs Superman is due 2016
