Exactly.

There are very clearly two front tires. How is this even debatable?

in that new pic of the black tumbler on the flatbed- what is that covered up behind it? almost looks like a snowmobile or something.

It's the batpod from TDK.

it does seem strange to me that they are flaunting the Tumbler & Batpod....

it feels like the classic diversion trick....

It seems odd to me as well.

Oh, that would be clever and annoying of them.

Maybe now he can eject the Batpod at will for tight chases, or maybe he built a new one (queue speculation that the tumbler in BB that was camoflouge really did come in black, and was an actual second Tumbler) and has the old Batpod seperate. Or maybe it is something totally different, some kind of distraction.

Those aren't tires on the Batpod, they're tires from the trailer the Batpod is sitting on. Just look at the detail, they're totally different from the back wheel; they even look like plain old trailer wheels.

It just looks like these wheels belong to the Batpod, because of the tarp covering the actual front wheel

TDKRises vehicle should be, if all my eggs are counted right;

- 1 Batpod (left over from the original Batmobile "Tumbler")
- 1 Batmobile "Tumbler" (the other testing Tumbler that Lucius mentioned in BEGINS)
- 1 Batcopter (rumored)

You guys are getting bit paranoid lol. It's not like we haven't seen these vehicles before. No reason to hide them. We know what they look like. Knowing they're in the movie isn't exactly a massive revelation.

We all knew Batman had to replace the Tumbler after Joker destroyed it in TDK. Now we know he's just got a new one.

You mean like reinventing the Batmobile to include an escape Batpod?

Don't get me wrong, I like the Tumbler (though I could take or leave the Batpod) but there's nothing about the Batpod coming out of the Tumbler that did anything to heighten the realism of Nolan's Batman. So if a reinvented Batmobile would have lessened the realism of the Nolan's Batman then so does the Tumbler-to-Batpod.

Re: The Batmobile in TDKR III
 
It makes perfect sense that the Batpod is back since he escaped on it at the end of the last film. The Tumbler though...I was thinking good riddance.

If the Batcopter is real... then i'd fully agree.

Wonder if they've altered the Batpod at all? seeing as it's possible that Bruce has probably started using it to use it regularly and i'm guessing if it's an emergency thing then it's not built for regular use?

the Pod launch has NEVER worked for me... i just cannot see hot it can happen....

But it doesn't take away from the awesome that was TDK

I was holding out for the Bat-Copter. Seriously, this is the best shark attack ever caught on film. Makes Jaws look like a child's school project.

:awesome:

The tumbler's introduction in Begins was badass, it's first appearance in TDK was SUPER badass.

I can't even imagine how ultra super mega badass its RETURN in TDKR will be.

Solidus 07-14-2011 03:22 PM

Re: The Batmobile in TDKR III
 
I'm glad the Tumbler is returning, it just fits so well in the Nolanverse, so visceral, and threatening. I can't wait to see another awesome chase sequence with the Tumbler.

I appreciate that you always put a super-enthusiastic/excited spin on everything to do with these movies, but I don't quite understand this. Are you saying that the third time you have seen the same thing is likely to be more exciting than the first?

Do you remember your first kiss, or your third more vividly?

I think he's expecting the Tumbler to fly out of a cargo plane or something, a la Optimus Prime!

Though it's probably unlikely at this point I hope we can add "New Batmobile" to that list:yay:

Well, it was just a prototype vehicle, so there is no need to order several vehicles if they haven't got passed the prototype stage yet. That's why Bruce wanted to use the equipment that Fox showed him, because none of it was mass produced.

There could have been two vehicles, but there could have also just been one, and they are going to build another with the blueprints they got back from Coleman Reese.

The biggest problem I have with the Tumbler, besides the rooftop flying nonsense, is that it reminds me of the Breyfogle Batmbobiles. I loathe that look.

These were taken in Pittsburgh right? Nolan isn't around to leap on people and threaten them if they don't keep **** secret.

Besides, I'm just happythe Tumbler is back. I wanna see how it stacks up against Bane.

This reminds me in the old days when people were laughing off the idea of the batpod launching out of the Tumbler. I even remember the picture of Nolan, Eckhart, and Gyllenhaal onset laughing and the caption read, "So then, the batpod launches out of the Tumbler!"

No wonder it's the the tumbler. It's not a freaking Batmobile

I remember when I suggested that the first day the Batpod pic was released, and people were posting facepalms. :O
