Oh, I'm sorry, I missed the memo that in a thread running to 140 omething pages, every single post had to be entirely original and not mention something already referred to.
Yeah, it's easy to miss stuff one post above yours, especially when it's one of the ones you're replying to.
Oh get the fuck over yourself. You asked why Batman would have a noisy and ostentatious vehicle when he sneaks about much of the time and I mentioned horses for courses. Of course the same topics and subjects are going to be discussed.

Which is one of the problems with the films. We haven't really seen a movie about Batman as a detective -- except maybe for the '66 film, which featured a lot of clue-solving, even if they were very contrived clues literally written across the sky.

As for the example of the Black Beauty, it's worth pointing out that, while it was subtle enough to blend into traffic at night, it still had a distinctive and cool look. And most of all, it was a very high-tech car. This is something the recent movie remake got wrong by using the exact same make and model of car as the TV series version. At the time, that model of car was brand-new and cutting-edge, and the BB represented a futuristic, advanced design rather than nostalgia. The Batmobile could work on similar lines. The Neal Adams Batmobile mentioned above sounds like the same sort of idea -- visually interesting because it's a sleek modern design tricked out with concealable gadgets (much like KITT from Knight Rider was), rather than because it's all dressed up with Bat-themed frippery or designed like some exotic concept car.

"The Dark Knight"?

The whole "reconstructing the bullet" scene to get a fingerprint from the Joker.

Wow, it's amazing how you don't even get your own responses right. No wonder you had trouble keeping up with the posts you were replying to. (That, or maybe you just don't know what that phrase means or something? I don't know.)

People, myself included, were saying that a vehicle more like what Bond or Green Hornet uses makes more sense for the character; fast, armored, armed, and full of snazzy gadgets. You then come out of nowhere, blathering on with an irrelevant phrase considering the conversation at hand, and then pull a Prius straight out of your nether regions. Then you have the audacity to get upset when what you said doesn't really make any sense and/or was already addressed.

It's okay if you're having a bad day. I have them all the time, too. Assuming that's what's going on, here's a hug for you. <hugs> But, honestly, with that said, the only one who needs to get over themselves is you.

OK, who are you and what are you doing with Kirk55555's account?

The Batman parts of this movie are the only things I'm holding out hope for. It would be nice if he had a good Batmobile, and from the pic I think it has a chance. Its not essential, but it would be cool.

You're actually right. I was having a bad day, with a 7 year-old who was having meltdowns and I was half-browsing the thread with half an eye on the tv. I posted a generalised response, whilst half awake on the couch, as I often do, whilst not paying particular attention to the details, nor expecting it to be particularly analysed. My post probably would have made more sense if I'd just added 'as others have said' before referring to the armour etc. So I guess I got over-sensitive to your response, as reading the thread was my way of escaping a bad day and instead finding more friction to an already fractious day.

I would've said this in a PM but can't seem to find how to PM you on your profile. So, hug accepted, even if not originally offered in total seriousness - and apology and handshake proferred in response?

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

Anyway, on a happier note, Snyder has posted not just the Batmobile but the Batman himself. Moody rather than detailed but the suit does look different from what we've seen before (the ears are anyway):

The Batmobil looks like what I was expecting as a Tumbler replacement The Dark Knight.

That suit definitely has a Frank Miller Dark Knight vibe to it.

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

I like the sculpting on the cowl, but I'm not sure of the rest. The Batsuit in the second and third Nolan movies looked genuinely functional and practical, body armor you could move around in. This seems more like the older movie designs that were more sculpted for show.

And I don't like the oversized Dark Knight Returns-style Bat logo. I'm also tired of Bat logos that are the same color as the rest of the costume. Okay, I get it, camouflage and all, but if he wanted to be camouflaged, why use a logo at all? The very existence of the logo implies that it's meant to be seen.

Not crazy about the new Batmobile either. It's still very Tumbler-ish.

Still, the cowl looks very good.

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

I was gonna joke and say 'Fat Man' but this is more of a Dark Knight Returns Batman. The suit and physique. Impressed.

I'm digging the suit, but the Batmobile looks fricking terrible.

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

I'm still quite partial to the second-gen Nolan Batsuit. This one seems to be a cross of the DKR cowl and the suit from the Arkham Asylum games, right on down to the brass-knuckles integrated into the gloves.
