Photos: 'Batman v Superman' Batmobile Seen at the Licensing Expo

June 9, 2015

Batman v Superman Batmobile

Throughout Batman history, the Batmobile has been an iconic part of the superhero's stories, and a key part of the marketing for all the movies. Warner Bros has been hosting rolling roadshows of all the various Batmobiles throughout history, so it makes sense they're already showing off the latest model now. Wired has snapped a nice, clean shot of the new Batmobile from Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that's on display at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas this week. A few other photos from social media have been added below. We've seen this before, but it's always nice to see it in closer detail. There's a hint it may even show up again in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, which is filming right now. Batman is back.

Our friends at Collider posted a few other photos, and included some details from Warner Bros. See all the shots plus grab the info directly below and let us know what you think. Does it live up to the old Batmobiles? Do you think this thing will be able to handle Superman, of all people? I don't know… From Warner Bros:

Single-handedly designed and fabricated in near complete seclusion by The Batman, this infamous pursuit and capture vehicle has earned its reputation as the apex predator on the mean streets of Gotham City. Over powered with an unmatched hybrid of prototype military and civilian performance technologies, this top machine has been estimated to reach speeds of up to 205 MPH. The Batmobile’s imposing defense capabilities, supported by stolen Wayne Industries technologies, have been integrated with the latest in covert military grade armaments, stealth and active protection systems. Facts:
– Twin .50 caliber retractable machine gun turret
– Fully armored
– Stealth-capable
– Active Protection Systems/Anti-ballistics
– 20 ft. long/12 ft. wide
– 7000 lbs.

Up first, here's the photo from Wired of the vehicle laid out on the showfloor at the Licensing Expo 2015:

    I wonder if the Batpod is still a part of the car? And I am not going to lie, this version looks really cool.

    Looks gnarly. I love it.

    Did anyone notice the steering wheel? It has little labels on the components: BP (Bat something...?) WET (submarine option - for an aquaman tie-in?) BO (Bat something else...or Body odor...deodorant maybe?) GRP (Grappling Hook, I imagine) and the middle circle has: INNOVATIVE COMPONENTS ACCESSORIES (bat purse, bat watch) MOTORCYCLE (does this car have a built in bike like in Dark Knight?) RIZOMA (this is a brand name of a fancy motorcycle parts manufacturer)
    • capitandelespacio
      I love the tags and the level of detail. Reminds me of the Adam West's Batmobile. If only had a big red telephone I would be so happy.
      • TheOct8pus
        It's some pretty rugged shit too, as if grumpy old Bruce Wayne just welded everything together in his basement....which I guess he did. But where's the airbag? Not safe....
  • Bill
    I bet the yearly car insurance is crazy on that!
  • Akirakorn
    First thing I noticed was the D-Pads on the steering wheel...
    • borninatrailer
      In the theater, first thing you'll notice is the d-bag behind the steering wheel... lolaffleckjoke
  • Jesse
    Of course I love it! So much detail in this machine it's crazy. I loved reading all the descriptions on the steering wheel. I am so excited to see how this will be implemented into the franchise. I hope it's used a lot!
  • toothepoint
    Glad they posted this.. I was unsure before but now I'm positive that it's the exact right weight for Superman to pick it up and throw it through the freaking moon...
  • Neuromancer
    Looks great, like a Tumbler with a more classic flat and elongated front look. Polish it up and it could fit right in the Square Enix lineup of Batman design.
  • Mark Brackney
    Nope. Still like Nolan's better.
    • Inclined to agree with you...not really feeling this too much. Sure it'll translate better on film...just not as well as the Tumbler did, lol.
