We all know that they’re currently filming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it’s only a matter of time before we find out if/how Robin appears in the film. Right? Right?! I mean, c’mon! How long do we have to wait? I’m only human!
To tide us over until the big reveal – that we’re all eagerly waiting for – pics of the movie’s Batmobile hit the web. Some amateur shots can be viewed here, but director Zack Snyder then just went ahead and posted a big HD pic.
I like it, looks good to me.
Though, of course, it only has seating for one. Damn you, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice! Quit toying with my emotions!
I get that sub-titles are all the rage in superhero movies these days, that simply numbering new movies in ascending order is too passe. But jeez, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is just a bit of a mouthful!
Warner Bros and DC Comics revealed the full title today on Facebook, announcing that principle photography has begun and blah, blah, blah.
The title, man, the title! What is up with that title? We’re approaching X2: X-Men United levels of bad titlery. First of all, the ‘V’ in the middle is a real stopping point when pronouncing the whole thing. Why not a ‘VS’? ‘Versus’ is so much more fun to say than ‘V’. Then this ‘Dawn of Justice’ stuff? Who needs it? I get that DC is building a Justice League with this movie, but we didn’t need the subtitle. If it was Man of Steel: Dawn of Justice, maybe. But ‘Batman vs. Superman’ is a freaking awesome movie title! Why not just go with that?! How is that not infinitely cooler?
Behold, the first official picture of the new Batsuit for the Batman vs. Superman sequel! Theoretically, that’s Ben Affleck under the cowl.
I like it! I like the shorter ears. I like the toughness of the costume. I like that it looks more like his traditional costume than some highly detailed, interconnected armor like from the Dark Knight trilogy. I hope we get to see a clearer picture eventually, but as for this first image, Tweeted by director Zack Snyder, I like it!
For an even better look, check out this Reddit thread where a guy colorized the photo to get a much clearer image!
And what’s that in the background? It’s the Batmobile! Snyder posted this picture yesterday.
I like the look of the Batmobile too.
So yeah, even though I really didn’t like Man of Steel, I’m digging all this Batman stuff.
Now then…give us Robin!
