Get a Tour of Zack Snyder’s Batmobile

It’s a blast from the past with every cinematic Batmobile in one place. But how will the latest offering from Batman V Superman measure up?

There’s no denying that batman has something of a thing for sweet gadgets. But all the batarangs in Gotham can’t compare to the majesty that is the Batmobile. The caped crusader’s cinematic history has given us a lot of great looking bat-rides. With Batman V Superman on the horizon, it’s a good time to look back at the Batmobiles of the past and ahead to what we can expect from Zack Snyder‘s instalment. But how could we possibly do both things at once? With a video tour, duh.

The news from Screenrant.com is that Variant have released a video tour of the Universal Studios Batmobile exhibit. The 13 minute tour includes an exhibit tour guide walking us through all the on screen Batmobiles. From Tim Burton‘s goth corvette to Joel Schumacher‘s neon rocket car to Christopher Nolan‘s grumbling tumbler complete with bat-pod. All the cars have a story to tell not to mention a few amusing tidbits from their time on set.

The best part of the tour is an up close and personal look at the latest Batmobile. The new addition from Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice had its grand trailer unveiling earlier this year. The tour gives us a much more intimate idea of what we can expect from the slender tank. According to the tour guide, the design was based mostly on Burton’s Batmobile, with some of Nolan’s war-ready tumbler thrown in. The wheels are actually shaved down tractor wheels and are a whopping 50 inches thick. Also the interior is camera-ready, so what we see in Dawn of Justice will actually be the interior if the car.

This latest Batmobile is a far cry from its 1989 predecessor, but seeing them all together in one place proves that they are all still undeniably awesome.

In case video tours aren’t your thing, why not go and see them for yourself? The new Batmobile is on display until January 2016. Alternatively, you can always watch Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice when it comes out at the end of the year.

Suicide Squad, Warcraft and Ennio Morricone: Top 10 Moments from SDCC 2015

If I had to pick one grotesquely obtuse metaphor to describe this year’s glamorous San Diego Comic Con, I’m pretty sure it would be moustachioed cowboy supernova that fuses hydrogen and glitter to make molten rainbows and vomits neurological organs.

Yeah, yeah I think that just about does it.

This was always going to be a wild card year, what with the absence of a Marvel presence save for half a dozen aimless cosplayers. But that wild card turned into a royal flush all too easily. We’ve picked out some of the best bits at this year’s SDCC, from teasers to trailers to screaming jokers. Here’s what we loved, in no particular order: Continue reading Suicide Squad, Warcraft and Ennio Morricone: Top 10 Moments from SDCC 2015

“Batman v Superman” Will Get the Kryptonite Treatment!

If there’s a binary of the Incredible Hulk in the DC Universe, it is without a doubt the badass element kryptonite. Why? Because it’s green, it doesn’t say much and it makes some of the strongest heroes look like jittery wimps of the highest calibre. What? Solomon Grundy? No, shut up, it’s kryptonite. Anyway, when will we get a chance to see the DC Hulk in action? A lot sooner than you think, if the reporters that be are to be believed. Continue reading “Batman v Superman” Will Get the Kryptonite Treatment!

Choose Your Side: “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” Teaser

What could be more exciting than finding out that the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer will hit theatres on May 20th? How about a sneaky teaser of the trailer to wet your beak? Yes, yes I thought you’d like that. In the followup to the highly anticipated Star Wars celebration which will see the release of a new trailer and poster for Force Awakens, Zack Snyder revealed that a short aperitif to the Batman v Superman trailer would appear an hour beforehand.

Slashfilm has reported that the teaser has gotten the full treatment, with limited seating Imax screenings and all the hype of a full length trailer. Warranted? Maybe, check out the trailer and see for yourself, courtesy of Youtube:

Consider your beak wetted! The main brunt of the tease is that we get a solid look at the costumes for bats and supes.We already had an idea of what these were going to look like, but it’s certainly a treat to see the dark knight’s cape and cowl up close.Ok, so it would have been nice to see Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill sporting their respective outfits, but that’s not what this trailer is for. It’s an exercise in tone as opposed to action, which makes sense at this point in the game with a trailer coming less than a week away. Still, a Pow! or two would have been nice.

Due in theatres March 26th 2016, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill,Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Scoot McNairy, and Jason Momoa.

What did you think of the tease?
