‘Batman vs. Superman’ Director Zack Snyder Teases the New Batmobile
This is serious business, so let’s get down to brass tacks: ‘Batman vs. Superman‘ director Zack Snyder took to Twitter to tease his film’s take on the Batmobile, AKA, Batman’s personal vehicle, AKA, one of the most famous vehicles in all of popular culture. Snyder shared the first image of the iconic automobile, mostly covered by a tarp, with a message suggesting that a full reveal could come as soon as tomorrow.
First of all, here’s the tweet in question. There’s no way Snyder would tweet this unless something actually was going to be revealed tomorrow. Right? Right?!

There’s little point in delving into too much speculation about a car we can barely see, but here we go! From what we can tell, the new design appears to harken back to a more comic-centric design, which is refreshing after three films worth of the more “realistic” Tumbler design. Even with the tarp obscuring the front, the new Batmobile appears sleeker and narrower, with more a dragster thing going on than a tank. Of course, the massive back tires suggest that it’ll be more than capable of running down enemy vehicles. As the large back fin … well, that’s probably just there to look cool.
The still officially untitled ‘Batman vs. Superman’ stars Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman and will arrive in theaters on May 6, 2016. Come back tomorrow for (hopefully) a full look at the Batmobile!
