‘Batman V Superman’ Lego Batmobile represents the best of both worlds

with No Comments


With a bit of trepidation, I’m excited about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which arrives in theaters March 25 next year.

But while we’ve still got close to nine months to wait until we get to see Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck beat the living heck out of each other on the big screen (before making friends in the third-act,) in the meantime Lego has released a photo of its official Batmobile tie-in set from the movie, complete with Batman minifig.

And it’s pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.

As per The Wall Street Journal, the Lego DC Super Heroes New Batmobile set includes 306 pieces, two ‘stud shooters,’ opening doors, a new Batman outfit deco, two additional unnamed characters and an extra vehicle. It will retail for $29.99.

Although the Anton Furst-designed Batmobile design from the first two Tim Burton Batman movies remains my favorite, this set certainly represents a nice mash-up of that iteration of Batman’s iconic vehicle and the all-terrain Tumbler from Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight movies.
