I'm indifferent.  I was always a Marvel fan.

Again, Space Marines should be cruising in it, nto Batman.

Looks like an early prototype for the Aliens APC.

I see Mad Max meets Picasso's Hummer looking for a Flux Capacitor.

I vote yuck.

Weird...  Oh well though, Batman's a lost property to me.  Toys suck and so do his movies.  :(  Too bad he's not getting the same care Spidey did.

If the first half of the script I've read is any indication, Batman IS getting the Spidey treatment (minus the Power Rangers villain masquerading as Green Goblin).

The Tumbler WAS designed for Marines. I can go into specifics, but I might be going into spoiler territory. I know if I decided to become a millionaire vigilante and had this in my Applied Sciences Department, I wouldn't feel the need to overhaul a Lincoln with Batfins instead.

And keep in mind, those specs are for the real-life vehicle, not its movie counterpart. While the wheels may not be bullet proof for practical filming purposes, I doubt the movie specs would allow for such an easy target. We'll just have to wait for the DK book to be sure.  ;)

Since this is Batman's early history, maybe he hasn't figured out that a faster car is superior for his needs.

I've confidence in Christopher Nolan to turn out a solid movie. Insomnia and Memento were both amazing with a tone that should fit Batman perfectly. It's like if the age-old "Frank Darabont is working on the new Star Wars" rumor came true - the best choice for the property they could probably make. That's one of the reasons I'm waiting for the movie to judge whether I like this vehicle or not.

More than likely they've planned on rewinding the Batman story far enough that we'll see a more stylish Batmobile introduced in later movies.

This abomination absolutely sucks! Worst Batmobile ever!

The best Batmobile to date IMO is:



It's a beautiful design, clean lines, and it even has OnStar for those times when Batman locks his keys in.

Somehow I think I'll hate this Batman more than the Val Kilmer Batman.

Upcoming line from the new Batman movie with Christian Bale:

"Don't just look at it Robin, eat it."  ;D

That ruined it for me.


It seriously just RUINED it for me.


That suit is hideous, and ruins the whole "origion" feel.

Lookie, a trailer. Well, a teaser anyway.

Famine-- at least the suit doesn't have any nipples on it. ;)

I like the suit, and I like the trailer even better.  Great mood setter.  This one looks to be fantastic.
