For some reason, there was a rumor that a Batmobile had been stolen from the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Bleeding Cool picked up the story from CBS News of all places, but it turned out to be completely false. How do we know? Well, aside from the official confirmations that not even one of the several Batmobiles on set had been stolen, director Zack Snyder decided to continue his Star Wars photo gags (previously seen with a Jedi Superman and Batman on Tatooine) by having another recognizable character from a galaxy far, far away apprehended by police for trying to steal Batman's ride.
Here's the photo Zack Snyder posted on Twitter over the weekend:
