Do you like the Batpod (after the new trailer footage)?

  1. Hell yes, it's badass.

  2. It's alright, but nothing special.

  3. I can deal with it, but it still sucks.

  4. Nolan? wtf were you thinking?

    Love the Batpod! Like the Tumbler, needed to be seen in action to be fully appreciated. The way it sounds, the way it moves, it's just badass.

    I think it's a strange decision. I really want to find out the reasoning behind it, because as far as i'm concerned, after having the tumbler blown up, you would think it would be an idea not to make Batman more vulnerable.

    It's awesome, but what happens when Batman's cape gets trapped in the back wheel resulting in the most gruesome neck break you ever --

    Actually, this might explain the "neck-brace" look that this new Batsuit seems to have.

    Hmm.

    The first shot from behind made it for me. Even if it is crap the rest of the film, that will work for me.

    The cape's got a safety collar thing, like my cat, just pulls apart if it snags on a branch or w/e.

    Well I am not sure Batman asks for it after the Tumbler blows because if you take a closer look at the trailer, there is a small scene where you see the Tumbler driving out of the "Batbasement" and you can see the Batpod right next to the Tumbler.

    That's like saying that if you were in A Scorpion tank in Halo 3, and that got blown up, it'd be stupid to jump into a Mongoose

    That is good... i was worried that they might use a destroyed Tumbler to make the Bpod.

    I'll make sure i check out that bit of the trailer when it airs today.

    And a bit too much Batman Returns-ish when he escapes through the restrained walls, but this time he seems to keep the bat-pod. If it comes out of it, like the Tumbler goes BOOM and he build up the pod with the parts left, that's great.

    Anwyay, the batpod looks fine on the trailer. More adventurous and risky than the tank, thus provoking a more natural face to face rough confrontation with Joker.

    At least, if it's open roof, the pod must have more utilities than the Discobatmobile in B&R, I mean WTF Freeze frosted him and there was an igloo top when there were actually none at start? Batman should have been frosted stiff and dead, logically speaking since there were no roof to protect him, but well...

    it's a cool bike. I like the look of it, as Batman drives it and I love the sound of it. Though like the tumbler, the suit or the colour of the Joker's socks, it will not make or break the movie for me.

    I never liked the new Batmobile.

    I like the Batpod more I guess.

    Loved batpod, but I would still prefer Batman to drive batmobile most of the screen time. I mean batpod does really look effective, but only for two-three action scenes, not more.

    I'm liking it. Still prefer the Tumbler, but in action it definitely sells it a lot more.
