Zack Snyder TeasesThe Batmobile
And we're promised more tomorrow...

12 May 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Zack Snyder

Though shooting has been underway for a while now on the yet-to-be-titled, Batman-filled follow-up to Man Of Steel, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. have been careful not to let too much slip. Now, though, it appears the wraps are coming off both figuratively and literally, as the director has teased a look at Superman Vs. Batman's Batmobile in readiness for a likely reveal tomorrow.

Tweeting the image via his official account, Snyder shows off a look at the vehicle still mostly covered in a dingy, disused factory. It’s tough to tell from this initial peek, but the shape appears to be favouring the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher era vehicle with a hint of the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Bat-universe. But we’ll have to wait to see the whole thing.

The superhero mash-up, which brings Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and other DC characters into Superman (Henry Cavill)’s world, features Steel veterans Lois Lane (Amy Adams), Perry White (Laurence Fishburne) and Martha Kent (Diane Lane) plus newcomers Jesse Eisenberg (as Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred), Tao Okamoto, Holly Hunter and Callan Mulvey. Whatever it's called, Superman/Batman is being shot in Detroit and is set for release on April 29, 2016 in the UK, before a May 6 US bow.

tim burton upgrade
Defintely a look of the best version of Batman namely the Burton/Keaton era but with more of a neo-noir feel. Lets also not forget that it had been teased that he may feature in two batsuits. I think this is gonna be bigger than Avengers and I enjoyed that but who won't want to see the two most iconic superheroes go head to head? More

RE: Losers
L: Concise_Statement That response would have more weight if it wasn't wholly owned by the same crowd who were ordering the genocide of teenage girls each time Twlight was breaking the box office. It's a nasty little franchise based on some nasty little books - but the motivation of rabid fanboys was more to do with females having the sheer audacity to invade their cinema overrun with fantasy blockbusters when the treehouse clearly stated 'No Girls Allowed'. Point is these people only More

L: QuietLife You people care too much. It's a movie, if you don't like the look of it don't watch it. Jesus. he whole point of movie going audiences is that we do care and we like to see good films and we've seen Batman go south very quickly before when they went down this road. We're just hoping it will be good More

This wont end well!
Why when it comes to Hollywood at the moment there is no originality? I look at this and hope its a joke, the dragster look was killed by nipples on the batsuit Schumacher. Thats why people got into the Nolan movies, They were a total refresh not just changing and old suit for one that looks exactly the same. This isnt watchmen Snyder, get creative! More

The doubts continue
Reminding me too much of the hideous Schumacher bat mobiles. A bit too cartoony. A shape that works in game consoles or cartoons. All that work to make a grounded man of steel (even if it was a wasted opportunity shit film) you can't come up with this kind of batmobile. More

He's going to show the world the batmobile BEFORE filming starts? I think not. More likely we'll see another part without the tarp, then another, then.... More
