To the Batmobile!
Cassandra Salapatas-Metz, Assistant Director of Transportation at Warner Bros Studio, was a guest speaker at the Meet the Family Speaker Series at Warners’ lot on March 11, 2014. Salapatas-Metz confirmed the new Batmobile to be used in Batman vs Superman, the unofficially titled Superman Batman movie from Director Zack Sndyer, “is finished but no one’s seen it yet,” as moderator Jeff Dunham commented on it. (Jump to 1:16:00 in the YouTube video at the end of the article.) “That is true. It’s all under wraps,” Salapatas- Metz responded in agreement with Dunham’s statement.

Previously, the Batmobile had been rumored for a car chase scene this summer in Detroit, but this was prior to the announcement of the production pushing back start up to the 2nd quarter of 2014. With comments that production may now be starting in about a month or so- taking aim at mid-April for possible launch- the timeline is skewed for us to know when the scene will occur.
Chances are good that an image of the new Batmobile, along with other cast/character images, will be part of a series of ongoing first looks released by the studio. The Batmobile is essentially a character in and of itself, aside from the Batabulous owner who drives it.
With the 75th anniversary year of Batman here, some are wondering if they can catch a glimpse of the new Batmobile this summer at San Diego’s International Comic Con (SDCC.) While Salapatas-Metz says she cannot comment on that scenario, but confesses it has been brought up. Her department is “ready to roll” if need be. I’m also willing to bet a “certain Director” has seen the Batmobile! *cough- Snyder- cough*
Well, I’m not at liberty to say. But, I think you might have a point there. But I think- let’s put it this way- it’s been spoken of. So always possible. We’re at the ready- us teamsters. We’re ready to roll if need be.
The Meet the Family Speaker Series is free to the public and occurs the second Wednesday of each month at the Warner Bros VIP Tour Center. Video of tonight’s event included. Jump to 1:16:00 to hear the Batman vs Superman conversation.
