Yes, that flying machine in the Batman v Superman teaser trailer is indeed the Batplane. The film does not hit theaters until March of 2016, but that doesn't mean we won't get spectacular looks at Batman's toys! In April of 2015, we got up close and personal with the Batmobile and DeAndre Jordan. The only difference was that he was actually around and in it. How cool is that?!
Today, Umberto Gonzalez a.k.a. El Mayimbe (not part of Latino-Review anymore) showed an exclusive image of the "Batwing." I am going to call it the Batplane because Batwing is an actual character. And a badass one, too. Anyway, here it flies!
This is unexpected, to say the least. It's not shaped like any other Batplane I've seen before. I can dig it, though. It looks aerodynamic enough and it's a nice shiny black. Also, I could imagine it hovering while Batman jumps out to fight his enemy.
Take a look at the image itself:
In the teaser trailer, we saw this bad-boy shooting at armed men with bullets. What kind of bullets? Could they be rubber as to not kill? Or did somebody take the Batplane and upgrade it to kill?
The big question, though?
Will the Batmobile transform into the Batplane?
When I first saw the Batmobile, I thought it was something that would be able to fly. And now that we have seen the Batplane, I'm totally thinking it's possible. The cockpit, the back of both of the vehicles, and guns look the same.
It just looks like a fun and very convenient thing to do! Imagine the transformation happening on the big screen. With the visuals from the team that handled Man of Steel. It would be breathtaking.
I want to know what you think. Take a few seconds to vote!
