The Hype for the next Superman/Batman sequel just got a lot bigger today thanks to a photo that was released via Twitter.
Zach Snyder, who will direct the unnamed 2016 film many are dubbing "Batman vs. Superman," tweeted a photo of what is intended to be the new Batmobile for the movie. Although, the vehicle was mostly covered with a tarp. Snyder did tease in his Tweet that a full image might be released on this Tuesday.
Entertainment Weekly added to the hype as their online reporters had a few choice words to tell fans of the upcoming movie.
"From the looks of it, could this be a hybrid of Tim Burton’s Batmobile and Christopher Nolan’s Tumbler, with just a touch of Joel Schumacher thrown in?" EW's Samantha Highfill wrote. "The length and shape of it feels more reminiscent of what we knew with Burton, but the tires look like they might’ve drawn inspiration from Nolan, though I doubt they can twist all around and turn into a Batpod at a moment’s notice. But the wing on the back of the Batmobile — is that what you call it? — feels more like either of Schumacher’s versions (though not as dramatic)."
Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in the upcoming sequel to the "Man of Steel" movie, has also been mum on script for what his role is intended to be in the movie. Most fans are speculating that the Dark Knight and Man from Krypton will go at it in some fashion.
The original Duel that most fans are hoping might be intergrated into the movie is the graphic novel plot that Frank Miller wrote in his 1980's "The Dark Knight Returns Part II," where an older Batman exits retirement one last time to clean up the streets of Gotham. This in-turn prompts the Government to issue an executive order for The Man of Steel to bring him in by any means possible.
The new Batmobile will most likely be revealed to the public on Tuesday. From the current picture it looks as if it is going back to the comic book themed vehicles over the more modern ones from the Chris Nolan trilogy that was recently released over the past few years.
