First Look at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES HotWheels' Toys

First Look at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES HotWheels' Toys

Hasbro has filed with the FCC three remote controlled vehicles inspired by Christopher Nolan's third Batman movie. The flying vehicle that has been called the new Batwing officially is being named, "The Bat."

Looks like we can no longer refer to the flying vehicle in The Dark Knight Rises as the Batwing. "The Bat" isn't entirely new, we've heard the name bandied about, but nothing permanent or official like Hasbro's filing with the FCC today.


According to HotWheels’ filing, these toys will be remote controlled vehicles with wheels (unfortunately, The Bat doesn’t fly). Also, all three appear to be quite small like other HotWheels toys…too bad, it would have been fun to drive a larger Tumbler around the office. -

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th 2012 and stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Garly Oldman as Jim Gordon, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate.

marvel72 - 1/18/2012, 3:39 PM

Minghagz - 1/18/2012, 3:44 PM
I actually have the 1989 hotwheels batmobile too... unfortunately it's not brand new and really worn down. Oh well.
SageMode - 1/18/2012, 3:53 PM
DC doesn't make kiddy toys huh? Gimme a break. Lol
Sanderman - 1/18/2012, 3:54 PM
they should be happy meal toys. what was greater as a child then getting a crappy toy with your meal
BLACKTHORN - 1/18/2012, 3:55 PM
the bat looks [frick]ing horrible, I hope it does something utterly amazing in the film to compensate it's awfulness...
Supes17 - 1/18/2012, 3:59 PM
Lmao are some of u guys really judging Hotwheels cars?!
aRandomSinisterClone - 1/18/2012, 4:01 PM
It's ashame they don't call it the Batwing. But I guess they can't now cuz of that lame ass African batman. I just found the 1989 Batwing model kit. Just gotta figure out how to put that shit together now.

Is this the first official confirmation that the aircraft is called "The Bat?" If so, I'd like to go back and find the first insider report that mentions it will be called that. Chances are that source is legit.

First off its Mattel that makes the Hot Wheels, not Hasbro. Mattel also has the aquired rights to the action figure line including the movie masters line. These photos are the designs for the 1:32 plastic childrens toys. I cannot reveal much as it would violate my contract with mattel, but much will be revealed next month at Toy Fair that does not interfer with spoilers for the movie.

@JDUKE wow, that really takes me back.

@JDUKE25 Wow! Thanks for posting those-- they really take me back!

Batwing implies there are actual wings, which this doesn't have. The Bat works perfectly fine, and more or less makes as much sense for a name as the Batpod.
AsianVersionOfET - 1/18/2012, 4:32 PM
Gotta have it!! *starts scratching skin* GOTTA HAVE IT!!!!!

Is Bruce Wayne going to build a racetrack in the movie?
venomvsspidey11 - 1/18/2012, 5:19 PM
@JDUKE25 I have the purple joker one, has chew marks all over it from siblings though.
DCnerd46 - 1/18/2012, 5:24 PM
"The Bat"? Really? Pretty lame name. They should have just kept the name "Batwing". This design obviously doesn't have wings, but still. Pretty silly.
antonio - 1/18/2012, 5:37 PM
Prenticious douchebags judging a toy lol.

Where is JGL as nightwing?
Mrcool210 - 1/18/2012, 8:15 PM
hey guess what hotwheels?
NeoBaggins - 1/18/2012, 8:47 PM
That's Hasbro. Not to be confused with the lames here at..

SkateandDestroy88 - 1/18/2012, 9:01 PM
Yeah who really gives a shit what's it's called. The important thing is The Dark Knight Rises is gonna slay all. Like Slayer at a hippy festival.
Since they stopped making the designs of the G I joe, not the orinal 12 " doll or whatever but the 3 and half inch action figures. Since they stopped making those it seems like toys are kind of lame. I buy my two year old son cars and balls and a mini skatboard and stuff but.. I saw a Elmo super hero DVD with Super Grover at wal-mart so will get him that.
Garmanbozia - 1/18/2012, 9:33 PM
Hmmm, were people also upset with the batmobile being re-named "the Tumbler" back in 2005?
RyanLantern77 - 1/18/2012, 9:58 PM
SkateandDestroy88 - 1/19/2012, 12:06 AM
They should rename it the Awesomeness/injustice-slayer/ super.powered/barbarstreisand/f#cksomesh#tupinater. ah yeah.
Dude seriously. Have you seen Gotham Knight. I know totally awesome and we get to see the Bat-Cave in this.
Jolt17 - 1/19/2012, 12:11 AM
The Bat, or whatever...I believe it won't be called that way in the movie.
6of13 - 1/19/2012, 2:51 AM
I think it is a good thing that it is not called the Batwing since it does not have any wings.
AutobotCommander84 - 1/19/2012, 4:10 AM
Hasbro? What the hell does Hasbro have to do with a toyline from their rival, Mattel?
endisnigh - 1/19/2012, 9:05 AM
If "The Bat" while flying can drop explosives from above, will these bombs be referred to as "Bat Shit?"
The toys are obviously for the kids, but look forward to the detailed adult versions.
