While director Zack Snyder did share a look at the 'Batman vs. Superman' version of the Batmobile, it was parked in a warehouse and half-covered in smoke. In short, you couldn't really get a good sense of what it would look like in action. Today, we get a much better look at what Batfleck's Batmobile will look like in 'Batman vs. Superman' as Bruce Wayne's whip has rolled onto the film's set for the first time.
Have you ever been playing Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham games and thought "this would be great, but I really wish this character I'm playing as was less like Batman. I wish he'd wear a suit of Iron Man armor and drive around blowing up tanks with a machine gun"? Well, if you have, and to be honest, I cannot actually imagine that is the case, I have some very good news for you.
Yesterday at E3, hot on the heels of a teaser showing off the many, many guns mounted on the Batmobile, Rocksteady released gameplay footage showing off both the new city environment of their upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight, along with the drivable Batmobile tearing around the city and blowing things up. With its guns. The gigantic guns that have been mounted on the Batmobile, the signature car of Batman, a character who fights crime because his parents were shot with a gun. I just wanted to make all of that very clear before we move on.
I'm all for recycling, but I think we can all agree that recycling is better when it involves Batman. That, at least, seems to be the theory that Li Weilei, a Chinese businessman and mechanic, seems to be operating under, which explains why he and a team of friends have been building replicas of the Tumblr, the vehicle Batman drove in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, out of scrap metal.
Ever since the announcement of the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight video game, one of the key selling points has been that it's going to feature a Batmobile that you can actually drive around Gotham City. It's pretty cool to see, if only because Batman's car is really the only aspect of the character that the previous three games in the series didn't really make an attempt to recreate, and today we've gotten a sneak preview of the Batmobile's "Battle Mode." It seems that players will be able to use the Batmobile in combat, deploying all the guns and missile launchers on Batman's iconic car.
Yep. All those guns. On Batman's car. You can probably see where I'm going with this.
Good news for those of you still looking forward to Man of Steel 2, AKA Superman vs. Batman vs. Wonder Woman vs. Cyborg vs. Green Lantern Maybe vs. Oh My God They Are Probably Going To Put Aquaman In A Movie: Justice League Begins! Visionary Director™ Zack Snyder took to Twitter today with an exciting look at one of the elements of the new film and revealed the brand new movie Batmobile!
Well, sort of. He revealed a wheeled, Batmobile-shaped object mostly hidden by a tarp, but hey, close enough. Check below for a larger look at the rear wheels, giant tailfins and potentially flaming exhaust of the sweet ride that Ben Affleck will be driving while quoting Frank Miller comics next Summer!
As Batman: Arkham Knight, the next entry in the popular video game franchise about Batman beating the criminally insane into submission in asylums of increasingly improbable sizes and complexity, draws nearer, we're starting to get to the point where we're getting a steady stream of information about the game. Today, with the release of a new set of screenshots, we got some of the most interesting news of all.
According to the latest screens, after appearances as a voice in a headset in the past three games, Barbara Gordon will finally be appearing as Oracle. That's big news for fans fans, but to be honest, that stuff about the Batmobile shooting you out of the roof like James Bond's ejector seat will probably have a bigger impact on gameplay.
