Seriously: Have you seen the Batmobile that Ben Affleck's Dark Knight will be driving in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"? There is being armed to the teeth -- and then there is the new Batmobile.
This one resembles a tank even more than the Batmobile, which was called the Tumbler in Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight Trilogy."
|Director Zack Snyder revealed this photo of the newest Batmobile via his Twitter account Wednesday.|
My Big Question for the Batmobile remains the same: Where are the Batfins, Zack Snyder?
After all, I figured since Snyder had teased us with revealing the back portion of this same Batmobile in mid-May, it seemed like there might be some Batfins on that bad boy. ...
It's the same question I had for Nolan -- not once, but twice. I posted an open letter to Nolan on the print and previous online version of Cary's Comics Craze. The first letter, in which I asked for a slight tweak to the Tumbler, came Sept. 23, 2006 before "The Dark Knight" was released.

I won't bore you with my entire argument about decking out Nolan's Tumbler with some distinctive Batfins, my basic reasoning was this:
"The comic book Batmobile has always screamed, 'Here comes the Dark Knight.' What better way to do that same thing in 'Rises' than with modifying the Tumbler with one subtle, sharp-looking bat-like wing on each of the rear driver’s and passenger’s side corners?"
So I still say: Where are the Batfins, dude?
Not on this Batmobile! Maybe in the next Batman film franchise. …!
