Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Apart from power level, maybe, Superman and Thor are hardly similar. Thor is a god who considers himself a god. Superman is a god who considers himself human.





Besides, Superman doesn't need a hammer to fly.

He sometimes gets one while he flies though.

At best Thor is Kal-El raised on Krypton by Jor-El. IOW, a bore.

Yeah, the Thor films were pretty boring.

Snyder just tweeted a photo of a mostly covered Batmobile! You can still see the back side.

Meh, lookslike they're going back to a Tim Burton-ish batmobile. Over stylized. I prefer something thats more function over form.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Actually it kinda reminds me more of the Tumbler so far.

Odds are it'll be some kind of hybrid between the Tumbler and the Burton Batmobile, which I'm perfectly fine with.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Ugh, where's the logic in the Batmobile being a tank? That was a specific conceit for The Dark Knight Returns, fitting the dystopian future that story took place in.

If anything, the Batmobile should be more like the Green Hornet's Black Beauty, a car that can blend in with normal traffic and doesn't draw too much attention to itself, while having mostly concealed gadgetry to be deployed when necessary. Where's the sense in driving to and from your secret crimefighting headquarters in the most conspicuous and easily tailed vehicle on the road?

Although, of course, there is only one true Batmobile:

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

It's a film featuring a flying alien god who shots lasers out of his eyes - I'm more on the "does it look fucking awesome?" side of Bat-mobile design and not really interested if it is realistic or not.

Looks like from the tweet, we will see an unveil tomorrow.

I don't think this scene would have as much weight to it





If Batman were driving a slightly modified lincoln

The Tumbler does not look awesome, it looks cumbersome and ugly. And the Anton Furst Batmobile never did much for me either. An awesome Batmobile would be either the one in my link above or the B:TAS version.

Hm, I thought it looked awesome, and more capable of doing all the weird shit a Batmobile does then most other designs. Stylewise, yeah, the '66 version of the Batmobile is awesome, as is the one from Burton's movie.

But when it comes to practicallity, the Tumbler can take some abuse. And that's what I'd like to have when I'm taking on crime.

Well the BTAS was basically just a cartoonified version of the Burton Batmobile (which in my mind wasn't nearly as cool as the movie version).

I do agree about the Tumbler though. It was certainly a big and intimidating design, but ultimately there was just never enough "Batman" in it for my taste. And simply being painted black was not enough to do it.

Oh, not at all! They're completely different, aside from maybe the elongated body and the "cockpit"-style passenger compartment. The Furst Batmobile is all curves and circles and aggressively downturned angles, with that jet-engine thing in the front and the stylized batwing fins on the back. But the Shayne Poindexter (TAS) Batmobile is much more linear and boxy, with a strong 1940s influence to the elongated front portion, and certainly without the Furstmobile's trademark jet intake.

Basically, the Furst Batmobile looks like a race car designed by a bat fetishist, while the Poindexter Batmobile looks like a '40s limousine designed by a rocket scientist.

Although the replacement Batmobile from The New Batman Adventures did have similar lines to the Furst version, more curvilinear and streamlined than its predecessor.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I've always thought the TBAS Batmobile was best, followed by the Burton version. The Tumbler never felt like a Batmoblie to me. If I'd just seen it without knowing who owned it, and you asked me what I thought the Tumbler was, I never would have guessed Batmobile, regardless of its paint job. This new one looks like it might be a mix of Burton's style and the Tumbler. It could be cool, I'll reserve judgement until I can fully see it. If nothing else, I'm sure it will be an improvement on the Tumbler.
