Well, more like here’s your first partial peek at the Batmobile in Batman vs. Superman. The highly anticipated (and highly confusing-looking) follow-up to 2013’s Man of Steel has been leaking a steady stream of casting announcements over the past few months, but today’s reveal is somehow the most exciting yet. Earlier today, director Zack Snyder sent the internet — and our office — into a tizzy by tweeting a picture of a partially revealed Batmobile with some cryptic text about a potential full reveal tomorrow.

In the words of our own Ben Mekler, “It looks like the Tumbler mixed with the Batman Forever Batmobile mixed with one of the dune buggies from Mad Max.” That being said, I’m kind of okay with this. Currently, Patrick Tatopoulous is listed as the film’s production designer and with a production design resume including Dark City, Stargate, and the Godzilla redesign, I feel like Bruce Wayne’s whip is in good hands.
Personally, my favorite versions of the Batmobile have been somewhere between the stylized Lamborghini hearse of Batman: The Animated Series and the battle-readiness of Batman Begins’ Tumbler. We’ll have a much better idea of what to expect tomorrow, but in the meantime, let us know what your favorite version of the Batmobile is in the comments below.
