The New Batmobile Will Give the Fast & Furious Franchise a Run for Their Money

Director Matt Reeves has revealed the new Batmobile for his upcoming film The Batman and it looks like Bruce is spending a lot of money transforming a muscle car into a vehicle of justice.

Since the film will take place in Batman’s early years, there’s no Lucius Fox to give him a military-grade tank like Christian Bale’s Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy. So it makes sense for it to not look too high-tech, but it’s Batman, so you know there are weapons hiding somewhere.

It looks like Matt Reeves took inspiration from older iterations, like the fins on the backside do remind us of Batman ’66. Simple and badass.

However, everything is meme-able. Who knows, maybe Bruce is just a fan of the Fast franchise. After all, it’s all about family.

We’d love to see a long car chase involving the Batmobile but before that, let’s take a drive throughout the history of the many Batmobiles that exists in films, comics and video games.

Batman ’66

Batman 1989

Batman: Arkham Series

The Dark Knight

Justice League

The Dark Knight Returns 

Here’s a bonus:

News and theories surrounding The Batman are all interesting. According to YouTube channel Heavy Spoilers, the film will take elements from Batman: The Long Halloween, Batman: Dark Victory, and a bit of Batman: Zero Year.

The majority of the film will come from Batman: Earth One. Pattison said Batman “wasn’t a hero”, which is a line from the synopsis on the book’s cover. In the graphic novel, Batman isn’t a hero, yet.

It would be interesting to see how these different elements would come together, but as a reminder, these are just theories. We’ll have to wait until the film comes out on 25 June 2021.
