Batman Begins

Recommended Posts

First pics of the new Batmobile are here .

Reminds me of the Batmobile in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

Did you read DK2. I really dislike it. I guess becuase Frank Miller doesn't like Superman, and the art was crappy.

Agreed. I thought it betrayed the ending if DK1. I heard a rumor that Miller was having some alcohol problems at the time which delayed the release of issues two and three. Very sad. I think I just read somewhere that he retired.

It actually looks like you could actually drive it. That is more than I could say about the last incarnation. Personally, I love the first one from the original series. When I was a kid I put a model of it together and it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen.

Sort of... The very first Batmobile was a one of a kind 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car, Retrofitted by the famous Los Angeles customizer. George Barris.

There were 6 replicas produced from molds of the original, for display at car shows. One was produced on a Ford Thunderbird chassis, the rest were built on a lengthened Ford Galaxie chassis.

I have eyeballed some of the copies in person, they were disappointing to say the least.

The current 1966 Batmobile is still owned by Mr. Barris and is worth 1 million dollars.

Barris purchased the '55 Futura for $250,000.

One of the few cars that came out of Detroit that didn't depreciate in value.
