With every Batman movie comes a new Batmobile, and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is no exception. The latest version of the Batmobile was just unveiled ahead of next year’s release of the much anticipated action film in which the 2 DC Comics caped crusaders will face off.
The latest Batmobile, which has seen several versions in past films and TV series, was revealed at the 2015 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas on Tuesday (9th June).
According to superherohype.com, also on display alongside Batman’s legendary vehicle is a fact sheet about this iteration of the Batmobile.
