I was already kind of kicking myself for not making plans to go to the San Diego Comic-Con this year but now I am really hating myself. Warner Bros is going to display all of the Batmobiles together for the first time at some some kind of extra event at SDCC called Extra at Comic-Con. They are even showing off the new camouflage Tumbler from the Dark Knight Rises movie that comes out soon!
If you are going to the San Diego Comic-Con, you can find all of the Batmobiles on display from the 12th-15th at Bayfield Park. To give you an idea of how awesome this is, below is the descriptions of all the cars and a picture of a small Batmobile traffic jam showing off all of them except the new one that will be unveiled at the event.
- Adam West’s 1955 Lincoln Futura. Designed by George Barris, this original Batmobile was featured in the cult classic television series and 1966’s Batman, the Movie.
- Michael Keaton’s Batmobile from 1989’s Batman and 1992’s Batman Returns. Sleek and powerful with a central turbine, the vehicles’ slightly retro design followed Tim Burton’s art deco look of the films.
- Revamped for Joel Schumacher’s 1995 Batman Forever, with bat-lighting and extended fins, Val Kilmer’s hot rod had the ability to drive up walls.
- Schumacher updated the Batmobile once again for George Clooney in 1997’s Batman & Robin.At 33 feet long and a top speed of 350 mph with afterburner thrust, this was the largest and fastest Batmobile on the road.
- The Tumbler designed for Christopher Nolan’s 2005 Batman Begins and 2008’s The Dark Knightis the prototype military vehicle designed by the character Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman).
