Pictures of the new batmobile from BATMAN BEGINS are now up at the official website here:

Any thoughts? I'm not sold on this design yet. It just looks way too clunky and the wheels look weird. Maybe it will look better when we see it in action. But I dug the design the Burton film's batmobile a lot more.

Damn you! Damn you I say!

I'll repeat what I said in the my post...

"I really don't know what to think about this. It's in a field, so it could be a Bat-Hummer(He did have a tank in the comics once.) but if THIS is really the Batmobile, I'm dissapointed.

I mean they got a kick ass cast and then screw the pooch on the second most important cast member? I say thee nay!

Could be worse I guess, Batman could be all fast and furious, but atleatst that would fit the character better."

So I drew a blank! Sue me!

Uhhhhhhhhh...I don't think that's neccesarily the Batmobile...maybe it's one of his other alternate purpose vehicles like the Bat-Wing or the Bat-Ski. The Bat Tank?

Looks like something Rat Fink would drive...

Okay, wait up a sec. Let me see if I get this right...

Batman. Fighting crime in Gotham City, a HYOOGE metropolis (no pun intended). At the beginning of the mythos of the Caped Crusader...

...And the Batmobile has all-terrain, off-road tires and armor that would make an M1A1 Abrams tank blush?!

I'm having weird thoughts that all the WCW Suits that Vince didn't hire got new jobs at TimeWarner and are now in charge of "revamping" Batman.

Not anymore. That Bat-urban-assult-vehicle is a joke.

I half-expected to see Mad Max rolling across the desert on top of that thing.

Take that excuse for the slow-moving beetle things from Super Mario Bros. (the game, not the horrible Bob Hoskins movie) to the Bat-room...and flush it.

Star wipe, and...we're out.

If anyone here read 'The Dark Knight Returns', you'll see a sort of resemblance to that storys "batmobile".

I like this one. Instead of trying to make some flashy bat-like car, they're using a vehicle that's actually practical. Moriarty from

    This is The Tumbler, built as a bridging vehicle for the military, then never used. Goyer describes it the first time we see it as "a cross between a Lamborghini Countach and a Humvee. Sandy camouflage, stealthangled panelling and variable-angle flaps across the back." It can do a rampless jump at 100 mph. It was built by the Applied Research branch of Wayne Corp., which is how Bruce Wayne stumbles across it. He modifies it a bit, and the result is the thing that's already being so hotly debated by fans. It's a real-world vehicle, practical rather than "cool," and that's a pleasant surprise.

So yeah. Let's look back at the last few Batmobiles used in the last films. You would rather use those? Or would you rather this movie be a little more realistic? I think if I was Batman, I'd want the tank-car rather than the one with neon lights all over it and a huge Bat-fin on the back.

What would you rather have if you're facing bomb-laden wacko costumed villains in Gotham: a Corvette or a Hummer?

This new Batvee is a nice design and another sign that this film is on the right track.

I've got to agree with BradBice. This reminded me a lot of the infinitely cool Batmobile from Dark Knight Returns. THAT'S a movie I want to see!

While I can understand having a more tank-like vehicle in "Dark Knight Returns," since that story presented a pissed off, middle-aged Batman who was more militaristic, I'm not so sure if he'd use such a vehicle when he was just starting out. Oh well, if it makes sense within the script, I won't have a problem with it.

Exactly. Any vehicle has to fit the story. Bruce has to have a reason to modify a military vehicle for his use as Batman. If they just use it so he can drive in to Gotham City, it's a little too overboard. But in today's times, I think this is something that would genuinely scare people when they saw it coming at them, as opposed to a car shaped like a Bat. So it might work.

We'll see.

No problems with the Batmobile. In Dark Knight Returns, the Batmobile was even more Urban-Assault than this, it should be noted. This seems more like the "prototype" Batmobile, as this is supposed to be more of a year one type deal. I mean, Bats probably won't throw a single batarang through the flick, and I'd be shocked if his grapple line even looks a little jerry-rigged. Does it look like the Batmobile we all know and love? No, and it shouldn't. It's the prototype.
