J.J. Abrams’ production company, “Bad Robot”, has decided to debut a “first look” at the Millennium Falcon from “Star Wars Episode VII” in a short clip. And the “first look” video comes with the appearance of another famous “all boys want it” vehicle!

As seen in the video below, the shot pans down the side of the Falcon when, suddenly, Hans Zimmer’s theme from “The Dark Knight” trilogy plays. The audio cue isn’t just a fun reference because the video ends with a zoom in on a piece of the Millennium Falcon’s underbelly. There, modelled onto the ship, is a recreation of the Tumbler, Batman’s suh-weet car.

Except that it ain’t black:

Ta-dah, surprise!

However, the inclusion of the Tumbler (which is highly unlikely since the Millenium Falcon cruises through space) is also a nod to the ongoing Easter egg war between J.J. Abrams and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” director Zack Snyder.

While it isn’t the Batmobile from Zack Snyder’s upcoming film, Bad Robot tagged Zack Snyder in the company’s tweet of the video:

We reckon that the (playful) trolling is due to the fact that Zack Snyder, who is now famed for his random but awesome Twitter activitiestweeted the latest in a series of Star Wars-influenced photos from the set of his superhero film, this time of Gotham police arresting a stormtrooper. This:

The above tweet has since been shared over 6.9k times. You could say that the interwebs has exploded. Meanwhile, fans are still waiting for the first actual “Star Wars Episode VII” trailer to be released.
