The Huffington Post has officially revealed The Batmobile, a documentary set to air on the CW on July 16 at 8pm EST. The special will premiere at Comic-Con on July 12.
You may remember the above image from a post I wrote on Twitter and Facebook. At the time, it was unclear under what circumstances the photo had been taken. However, through information gleaned from one of my contacts, it turns out there is might be something very cool happening out in California.
According to my contact, this little motorcade is actually part of something pretty wonderful; it appears that this photo was taken in April of this year outside of Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, and the slideshow gallery shows some shots of the vehicles at alocal car show – but word on the street is that this is all preparation for a documentary on Batman. Sounds pretty cool to me!
If this story is true, I am especially anxious to see what sort of artistic choices were made for each of the on-screen iterations. In terms of preference, my own vote goes to the second one back from the 60s version; Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns had some awesome aesthetics, and I really dug the look and functionality of that particular design.
How about you – which Batmobile is your favorite? And are you excited for the possibility of a Batman documentary?
