Default The Batmobile Thread

This is a thread to discuss all things about the Batmobile.

Should it be included in the movie? What should it look like? Should it have gadgets like in the Tim Burton movies, or should it be realistic?

When you say "realistic", do you mean just a regular car that gets him from Point A to Point B?

This thread could just be combined with this one...

When I said realistic, I meant it would only have modern technology, like missiles and nitrous. In the Tim Burton movies, the Batmobile had grappling hooks, oil slick dispensers, missiles, and a device that let the whole car rotate 360 degrees. It was very campy, but showed how Batman was very prepared.

Well, I don't find any of the Batmobiles to be realistic. So, I don't see how what type of weapons it may or may not have as a big deal.

I hope they ditch the Tumbler, I ****ing hate the Tumbler. I want an actual Batmobile. Now I'm not a car designer so I don't have any concrete ideas, I just know that I don't want that ugly thing from the Nolan films.

I'm still a sucker for the DCUO Batmobile:

Toss in some flight capability, too. Give the guy in the blue jammies who thinks the sky is his domain a surprise.

IMO this is still the best one out of all the examples. Just mix it with a F-117 (so to speak, the jagged lines of the plane and the tail fins).

I still like the bulky ones (Arkham Knight come to mind), but I just want a sleek car, idk why.

^I am not even a car guy in the least, and that thing just got me sexually aroused!!

That is exactly what I want in a batmobile. No need for bat insignias and the like. Its black, it looks like it goes fast and it looks like no one else could afford it. Done. That's the Batmobile. Shame it won't be that way.

Yep. I'm bored of the Tankmobile. Make it a car, with gadgets.

And have it turn into a submarine, just for kicks

Cross the functionality and sheer bad assness of the Tumbler with the sleekness and sex appeal of the Burtonmobile.

EDIT: That car up top is damn close.

Obviously, Snyder & Co. will need to make it very apparent that this Batman is unrelated to the Nolan incarnation. The Batmobile, like the Batsuit, is one easy way of doing that. I echo the sentiment of moving away from the Tumbler tank look. The Lamborghini concept is really interesting too look at, and the design aesthetic does not resemble any of the previous Batmobiles, so that is a plus in its favor.

I really liked the Tumbler, but I would like to see something more performance driven (no pun intended). Maybe something along these lines,



I think the plating is a little much, but I like the idea of having a car that car out perform and out muscle anything else.

Also, it doesn't have all the bat insignia stuff all over it. How could Wayne buy or manufacture that in secret? I giant car with rocket engine and his logo plastered all over the damn thing.

This but give it some fins off the back like the Burtonmobile and a more defined cockpit and we're set.

I love the Burtonmobile, it's the best damn batmobile in any medium, so I hope they draw very, very, VERY close inspiration from that.

I hate every batmobile that came after, and I especially hate the ****ing Tumbler. Thing's not even a batmobile. It's bull****.

It can LOOK like a damn batmobile AND still be "functional". Because hey, guess what....

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
NONE OF IT'S REAL OR "REALISTIC" AT THE END OF THE DAY.


So think on that.

Runner up for best batmobile would definitely have tp be the one from the animated series, season 4/Justice League. That batmobile was awesome and looked similar to the Burtonmobile yet was its own thing - PERFECT batmobile concept if they do it in a movie again, IMO. NEEDS to be done.











I really do love the "turbine/jet engine" look of the burtonmobile though. I would love it of that were somehow incorporated in there. Man, that design really is so perfect in many ways. God, I love it.

I'm not completely sure how the driver would see.

I'd raise the cockpit and make some adjustments to that for sure, but it's not bad as a concept goes.
