Is The New Batmobile A Hovercraft?
A jet-like vehicle takes Gotham City and The Dark Knight fandom by surprise.
Fans of The Dark Knight Saga all over the world are abuzz as Warner Bros. Pictures released the third full-length trailer of The Dark Knight Rises early this week. Apart from the rabid questions and speculations from followers about the main characters including: Bruce Wayne/Batman (Christian Bale), Bane (Tom Hardy), Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway), Alfred Pennyworth (Michael Caine), Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), and John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) among others — what kept numerous fans awake at night was the unveiling of the enigmatic aerial vehicle that Batman and Kyle drive at the very end of the trailer below:
Amateur footage of the vehicle was posted late last year on YouTube and other unofficial Batman sites, leading fans to dub it as “The Batwing,” a realistic depiction of the Batjet in Batman comic lore. However, IGN has since discovered through a revelation of Hotwheels’ toy tie-ins for the movie that the vehicle is simply named “The Bat.”
The Dark Knight Rises will see a July 20 release in the United States.
