We think you'll agree that a Japanese highway is one of the least likely places you would expect to see Batman - or at lease someone dressed like the Dark Knight.

Like the movie “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the upcoming gaming title Batman: Arkham Knight Game will be getting its own bespoke Batmobile design.

You know Hollywood’s run out of ideas when these types of “a vs b” movies are announced. You also know not to expect a deep plot, as “versus” films in the vein of the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” are tenuous at best and usually all about the fight scenes and explosions, challenging your eyelids to stay open until the end, instead of challenging your brain…

You can probably kiss Josh Byrnes' more Corvette/sports car-like Batmobile proposal goodbye, because Batman vs. Superman director Zac Snyder has just tweeted a teaser picture of the next Batmobile and it looks like it will continue to have that industrial / workhorse feel of the Tumbler from the Dark Knight franchise.

The passion for Batmobiles is not limited to just the US, and as you’ll see in the video below, it also surfaced in Russia. It shows driving shots of a homemade vehicle that has a Batmobile-esque shape (okay, you'll have to use your imagination) and arrangement and goes like hell when the driver puts his foot down.

When it comes to movies, the most memorable aspects are ones that capture the audience’s attention and imagination. Usually characters play the biggest part in achieving this; however, the stunts, locations and props can leave a lasting impression too.

For the petrol-head amongst us, this is no more evident than the use of the motor car. From Steve McQueen’s Bullitt, to the likes of Gone In 60 Seconds, 007, The Italian Job and the more recent Fast & Furious franchise films - automobiles on the big screen are something we aspire to associate with.

If you’re a fan of Batmobiles and have always wanted to build a replica of your own, but never got around to it as it was too big and daunting a task, we are going to take the liberty to suggest shrinking it and building it at a smaller scale, not using an actual car to underpin it.

Batman wouldn’t be the cool masked vigilante/detective/billionaire by day that he is, without his assortment of toys that always seem to be perfectly suited for the situation in which they are used.

The same principle applies to Batmobiles, which are easily the most noticeable pieces of kit he is seen using, and now, there’s going to be a new one being made for the upcoming big screen confrontation that needs no explanation: “Batman vs Superman.”

Jay Leno Drives Batmobile Tumbler on the Street, Finds Out It’s a Solid But Noisy Cruiser

Read more

Whenever I look at the “Tumbler” Batmobile movie car, quite a few different stealthy and armored military vehicles come to mind, all of which are not that fast and a bit cumbersome to get around in.

Not the Tumbler, though, as Jay Leno found out, because it’s a vehicle designed to be part of the actual stunts performed in the Batman movies, so it can drive, turn and stop just like any other car, plus it has a V8 engine and an automatic gearbox, so it’s not slow and makes things easier by shifting its own gears.

We might be approaching the 50th anniversary of the campy 1966 Batman television series with Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin, but there's still a lot of interest about the show and its mechanical stars like the famed Batmobile and to a much lesser extent, the Batcycle.

These include the one you see pictured here that is listed for sale together with one of the original Batcycles from the series at RM's upcoming auction "The John Staluppi Collection" on December 1, 2012.

Not all Batmobiles are made equal and this principle surely applies to the Bat car listed for sale on the German version of eBay.

The pictures of the DIY Batmobile more or less speak for themselves with the seller adding that a "very extravagant and futuristic artist and designer" built the strange looking contraption, and that it has won "several trophies at events".
