A video of the Millennium Falcon posted by the Star Wars production team reveals something completely unexpected: The Batmobile from Chris Nolan's Batman will be in the next part of the galactic series. I couldn't believe it until it's revealed. Check it out.
The Batmobile is included in the Falcon hull as part of a series of recent Twitter exchanges between Episode 7 director J.J. Abrams and Zack Snyder, director of the upcoming [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870). Abrams and Snyder have sent several Star Wars/Batman universe mash-up images back and forth to one another over the summer.
The camera begins the teaser facing the front/starboard quarter of the Falcon just under the cockpit blister, and pans along the starboard blade. The field of view passes near the hidden underbelly repeating blaster and ends in a recessed maintenance area not far from the concussion missile launcher. A small model of the Christopher Nolan-era "Tumbler" Batmobile is treated with the same paint job as the Falcon and carefully integrated into the structure plating suspended within the lower alcove.
I published this two weeks ago.
