A week ago, a source for Batman on Film, informed the site that the Batmobile is being designed and built by General Motors at the GM Advanced Design Studio in North Hollywood. Their source, stressed that the new Batmobile would not look like the Tumbler, as seen in Chris Nolan's Batman trilogy.

According to my source, who I will refer to as, “General Napier,” General Motors IS working on the Batmobile designs, but I was also told that production designer Nathan Crowley, and engineers Chris Culvert and Andy Smith, have been consulting on the designs. All three previously worked on Nolan's Batman trilogy. They were responsible for converting Nolan's "crude" Play-Doh design of the Tumbler into the Lamborghini/tank-like vehicle that it became. My source tells me, ideas are still being tossed around, but don't be surprised if some elements from the Tumbler ARE incorporated into the final design. What those elements are? I haven't been told.

How about Ben Affleck's costume? We have a bit of info about Batman's cowl. Which in the comics and movies has been used to conceal Bruce Wayne's identity and to add to his imposing and intimidating presence. My source tells me that current cowl designs resemble the Caped Crusader's look in Batman: Noël. Which is a 2011 graphic novel written and illustrated by Lee Bermejo, based on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. They also explored concepts that looked like Injustice: Gods Among Us designs, but ultimately passed on those because they were too similar to Nolan's costume.

Couple weekends ago, Zack Snyder filmed Batman Vs. Superman scenes at East Los Angeles College’s Weingart Stadium. It was a football game between Gotham City University and Metropolis State University. A rumor, first appearing on Collider, stated that Ben Affleck was in attendance giving a motivational halftime speech. I'm told Affleck wasn't even in the state at the time, and furthermore, hasn't filmed any of his part yet.

Let's wrap this up with a few Superman tidbits. My source tells me that Henry Cavill just received a copy of David Goyer's script last week, and that you can expect alterations to Superman's costume, as there are "two separate teams working on the suits."



In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.



Man Of Steel was directed by Zack Snyder, from a script written by David Goyer. The cast includes: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Laurence Fishburne and Richard Schiff.

SpaceRobot - 10/28/2013, 6:48 PM
Nice! I like the look of that cowl, and stoked to see what Supes new suit will look like!
Transforminator - 10/28/2013, 6:49 PM
[frick] I had a feeling they were going to go for a "short ear-ed" cowl look. Hopefully it doesn't look as bad as I envision it.
Greengo - 10/28/2013, 6:49 PM
The new Batmobile is going to have HUGE shoes to fill.
Transforminator - 10/28/2013, 6:50 PM
How the hell are they going to explain the change in Superman's costume? Its not like he made it or something.....
SpectacularJoShFest - 10/28/2013, 6:50 PM
Hmm...not bad at all...I was really starting to think I was going to be disappointed in the cowl but it looks good...better than the one in TDK any day.
MrBatmor - 10/28/2013, 6:51 PM
How will superman get a new costume?? Will he bring a krypton needle to earth?
SmallvilleArrowLover - 10/28/2013, 6:51 PM
but i was ready for an ACTUAL costume
SpectacularJoShFest - 10/28/2013, 6:52 PM
Also...changing Superman's costume is...retarded. The MOS suit is probably the best suit the character has ever had and they are going to [frick] it up??? [frick] off with that shit. Keep it the way it is, it's awesome already.

TheSuperguy - 10/28/2013, 6:55 PM
Sounds cool. The look in Batman: Noel was awesome.
Ineedrevelation - 10/28/2013, 6:56 PM
Not a fan of the short ears and hated the Tumbler.

Going to be another shitfest bust like MoS

Indy - 10/28/2013, 7:03 PM
Their probably just adding on superman underwear.
liveman789 - 10/28/2013, 7:07 PM
@Nova photoshop. Marvel is photoshopped over girls.
HavocPrime - 10/28/2013, 7:07 PM
Wouldn't mind seeing the New 52 suit being the base design, as that is pretty awesome to begin with, and maybe with the actual lenses covering the eyes.
SuperCat - 10/28/2013, 7:07 PM
I'm thinking Supes costume is gonna look a little more traditional instead of the alien-like Kryptonian suit.
soforizo - 10/28/2013, 7:08 PM
Supes MOS suit is fine as it is, best thing they could've done was to make the suit come from Krypton, at least it gives a passable justification for its durability.

I can't say I hate the cowl, but I definitely not thrilled by it. I'll have to wait to see actual concept art, before forming an opinion on it.
ForeverPowerful - 10/28/2013, 7:08 PM
Noel is one of my favorite stories, so this sounds good to me.
SuperCat - 10/28/2013, 7:08 PM
Sans red underwear, I hope!
Nerdgasm73 - 10/28/2013, 7:09 PM
Still not sure about this.
Moohika - 10/28/2013, 7:09 PM
YES! I love the cowl from Noel
muttonman - 10/28/2013, 7:10 PM
@NovaCorpsFan

Its from a campaign to end child prostitution (if I remember correctly)

The original signs said "Real Men Don't Buy Girls"
tron21full - 10/28/2013, 7:12 PM
