Here’s A Photo Of The New Batmobile

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Batmobile

Here you go folks. Zack Snyder tweeted an official image of the new Batmobile. It looks… fine. There were some photos posted yesterday by a bystander of the thing parked in the street which I didn’t post, partly because i am on holiday and partly because they were terrible photos, but this gives a much better idea of the actual look.

Yes, there’s a big gun on the front. Apparently there is more than a little backlash around the web about the gun but I don’t really care. Every Bat-vehicle so far has had lots of guns and Zack Snyder’s style isn’t exactly subtle, so why are we at all surprised?

Besides, this new franchise has already missed the point of Superman and this movie in particular only exists to set up more movies in the future. Another studio tried that with one of the most popular superheroes on the planet this year and it went, uh, poorly.

Don’t get me wrong here: I sincerely hope this movie turns out to be fantastic. I really do. WE’re living in a golden age of nerd properties being cool and I want to revel in every moment of it before it passes. I just have no faith that this director and this writer are going to deliver a good movie. They couldn’t even come up with a good title after all.

Well turns out that Warner Brothers and DC have changed their mind and moved Batman v Superman ahead two months to March 2016 and announced 9 new release dates to boot.
