J.J. Abrams, director of Star Wars Episode VII, got into a little bit of Star Wars vs. DC Comics one-upsmanship with Zack Snyder. For the most part, it’s relatively ignorable — but it finished with J.J. Abrams posting a video of a steadycam shot of the Millenium Falcon set piece he’s currently using in Episode VII.
And tucked into the hodgepodge of kibble was a model of “The Tumbler,” the Batmobile from the Dark Knight trilogy.
And it’s kind of funny.
So after leaked images of the Batmobile from the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Terrible Movie Titles, director Zack Snyder has decided to tweet out a much higher quality photo of the notorious vehicle.
I don’t know why people seem so surprised, because while it’s the first direct shot of the car, it’s not like we haven’t seen it before. The car has a feel which seems to blend classic Batmobiles with the Tumbler from the Dark Knight Trilogy… and I kind of like it.
It’s nice to see this film get something right for once.
