The Batman: New Batmobile Revealed in First-Look Photos

Matt Reeves, the director of The Batman, has unveiled a first look at both the new Batmobile and a better look at the Batsuit..

The design of the Batmobile is in keeping with the first look of the Batcycle fans got in February from a series of unauthorized photos from a location shoot for "The Batman" in Scotland. According to the invaluable The History of the Batmobile online archive, that one was based on the Ligier JS2, a French-built sports coupe manufactured in the first half of the 1970s.

Each cinematic Batman is tied intrinsically to his Batmobile. We're getting heavy muscle auto vibes. His Batmobile is a modern take to the 1966 Batmobile, with influences from Batman's Golden Era to boot.

What do you think of Pattinson as the Dark Knight? Let us know in the comment section below! Regardless, this Batmobile is still just as intimidating as anyone could hope for, especially considering the film reportedly takes place during Bruce Wayne's second year as Batman.

Less dark and brooding than previous incarnations - Christian Bale's Tumbler vehicles from the "Dark Knight" films were basically intimidating tanks - Batman's new ride looks more like a souped-up 1960s Camaro than a vigilante's oppressive wet dream.

The Batman comes out June 25, 2021, so there's plenty of time for Reeves to reveal more about his interpretation of Batman's legend, which includes Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. Stay tuned for more updates on Robert Pattinson as we learn it.
