More Photos Surface of 'Batman vs Superman' Batmobile
Director Zack Snyder first unveiled the Batmobile used in the upcoming Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice back in May. Although gritty and certainly not "Hollywood" quality, it gave fans a glimpse at the highly anticipated sequel to Superman: Man of Steel. Well, in case you were thirsting for more, new photos of the Caped Crusader's macked-out ride have surfaced.
The new photos were taken by Instagram user amarco13, whom we believe works on the set. The photos show the Batmobile parked on the side of the street with its suicide-style doors propped open. Granted, it looks strikingly familiar to the model used in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, but it also has its own unique elements. On an unrelated note, the new Batmobile looks like it's in need of a wash.
Unfortunately, the new photos don't reveal Ben Affleck dressed up as the Caped Crusader (although we've seen some leaked photos of this before). It does, however, keep fans such as myself in anticipation for the film's release.
In an interview with Screen Rant, director Zack Snyder discussed the concept behind a Batman versus Superman movie. According to Snyder, he and a few colleagues toyed with the idea after Man of Steel was finished. It wasn't long before they committed to Batman vs Superman.
"I gotta be honest, it definitely was a thing that… after Man of Steel finished and we started talking about what would be in the next movie, I started subtly mentioning that it would be cool if he faced Batman. In the first meeting, it was like, “Maybe Batman?” Maybe at the end of the second movie, some Kryptonite gets delivered to Bruce Wayne’s house or something. Like in a cryptic way, that’s the first time we see him. But then, once you say it out loud, right? You’re in a story meeting talking about, like, who should [Superman] fight if he fought this giant alien threat Zod who was basically his equal physically, from his planet, fighting on our turf… You know, who to fight next?"
