WB Unveils New Batmobile and Costumes for BATMAN V SUPERMAN at Licensing Expo in Las Vegas

The Licensing Expo is in full swing in Las Vegas this morning, and corporate brand owners have been showing off some of the newest and coolest items for manufacturing, licensing, and retail details with major consumer goods companies. It is here that Warner Bros. has unveiled the first full look at the new version of the Batmobile that will be appearing in next year’s highly anticipated superhero film, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. (Yes, we’ve seen it in the trailers and promotional images before, but never quite like this.)

Batman’s ride sits proudly next to displays of the on-screen costumes that will be worn by Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman . The reveal has been blowing up across Twitter and we have collected some of the images circling from the event.

The Batmobile looks like it has been built to resemble a hybrid model, combining elements of the Tumbler version that was made popular in Christoper Nolan’s Dark Knight films and the Jet-Engine Impala chassis that was seen in the original two Batman films directed by Tim Burton. Collider‘s Steve Weintraub, also shared a video that offered a listen at the engine running inside this new beast. It seems that Batman will have some horsepower underneath him as he sets out to balance the scales against The Last Son of Krypton next summer.

Listen to the new batmobile!

A small display near the exhibit also gives their brief description of the vehicle, which reads as such.

Single-handedly designed and fabricated in near complete seclusion by The Batman, this infamous pursuit and capture vehicle has earned its reputation as the apex predator on the mean streets of Gotham City. Over powered with an unmatched hybrid of prototype military and civilian performance technologies, this top machine has been estimated to reach speeds of up to 205 MPH. The Batmobile’s imposing defense capabilities, supported by stolen Wayne Industries technologies, have been integrated with the latest in covert military grade armaments, stealth and active protection systems.

Facts:

– Twin .50 caliber retractable machine gun turret

– Fully armored

– Stealth-capable

– Active Protection Systems/Anti-ballistics

– 20 ft. long/12 ft. wide

– 7000 lbs.

Those are some impressive features. The most important part, though, is what you think. Are you digging this new design, or were you hoping for something a little different?
