‘Batman vs. Superman’ to Release a Tech Manual to Explain All Those New Gadgets
With every new Batman comes a new Batmobile, new Bat-gadgets, new Bat-suit, new Bat-cave, new Bat-mansion — new Bat-everything. He probably also has new Bat-soap and a new Bat-shoe rack. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all of Bruce Wayne’s fancy new toys when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (aka Batman, and Also Somewhat Superman) hits theaters next spring, since you’ll already be pretty occupied trying to keep up with three heroes, two superhero cameos, and probably something like five villains.
Warner Bros. feels your pain, so the studio has teamed up with DC Comics to release Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Tech Manual (that extra colon comes free of charge — what a steal), a companion book that will cost you $39.95 and will explore all of Batman’s gadgets, Wonder Woman’s weapons and Superman’s new…whatever Superman has going on. A new cape? Sure.
Here’s the cover (via Heroic Hollywood):
The book hits shelves on March 22, 2016, which gives you a few days to study up on all of the new tech before the film arrives on March 26. There will be a quiz.
For more info, here’s the book’s official synopsis:
Batman’s tech has been reimagined and reinvigorated in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the new blockbuster from director Zack Snyder releasing in March 2016. This book takes an exclusive, in-depth look at Batman’s arsenal, vehicles, Batsuits, and the iconic Batcave. The new Batmobile design is explored from first concept sketch, through detailed blueprints, all the way to the physical construction of the vehicle itself.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Tech Manual is a definitive guide to the weaponry and props created for the movie. It closely examines the Utility Belt, the Batwing, grappling hook and batarang. Everything in the Batcave is explored down to the construction of the set and the graphics from Bruce Wayne’s mainframe. This official volume also goes deeper in to the world of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, showcasing Superman’s Kryptonian suit and Wonder Woman’s iconic weaponry.
The official companion book to the new movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Tech Manual, features interviews with concept artists, the film’s weapon’s master, the mechanic for the Batmobile, and Zack Snyder himself.”
