Motorcycle manufacturers across the UK have been put on high alert after Marvel stated that it is searching for a "futuristic" looking electric bike to be used in an upcoming film. The comic book movie makers have contacted the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) and explained that the bike will be used in a major production that will be shot in England in an imaginary 2045.

Officials explained that Marvel did not give any specifics in terms of numbers needed but only said that it would be requiring more than one.
For companies and manufacturers that would be suitable and welcome the chance to be involved should contact, picture vehicle coordinator Ian Clark via the MCIA press office.

Marvel's Batman series has spawned some of the highest grossing films in a generation, with both The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises featuring Christian Bale using a modified motorbike known as the Batpod (pictured).
"Marvel's Batman" flub notwithstanding, this seems to be legit. What do you guys think? A new bike for Cap? For Hydra soldiers? Since this is a UK-based company, maybe a GOTG-related vehicle or something for Avengers 2?
Hmmm, 2045... that's the part I'm a little wary about. Hopefully that meant that they were looking for a bike that could 'looks' like it could fit in in 2045 rather than them mucking around with time travel.
