The new and improved Batman ride is revealed along with many other details including the bad guy and one action set piece.
Details of the upcoming “Justice League” movie start pouring in to the internet from its set in Europe. The DC superhero team-up movie will no longer split into two parts like it was initially planned. Instead, the project is now being developed as one standalone film.
“We were only ever planning, and we are only doing, Justice League,” said Zack Snyder’s wife Deborah who also serves as a producer for the movie. When asked if there is a second part, she gave an affirmative “no.” The movie is now due November 17, 2017.
A picture that gives a glimpse at Batman’s ride is also shared. The car is armed with multiple weapons. “You have missile launchers, you have cannons, you have machine guns,” revealed production designer Patrick Tatopoulos to the press during a tour on the set.
Like it was revealed in the synopsis, it’s Bruce Wayne who initiates the supergroup with the help of Diana Prince. He will also build an airship called “Flying Fox” for the team, design a suit for The Flash, upgrade his own suit, and have another ride called “Nightcrawler.”
“There’s an action set piece — we’re gonna take you to this tunnel,” Deborah Snyder explained. “It’s a tunnel they were gonna build between Metropolis and Gotham and it had been abandoned, so the project never really went forward. But there’s abandoned remains of what started to be this tunnel. It’s pretty hard to get the Batmobile through there, so it’s nice to have the Crawler, which can maneuver.”
The movie will follow the League on a quest to find three Mother Boxes on Earth, Atlantis and Themyscira. Steppenwolf is confirmed as one of the villains. No actor has been announced for the role, but Willem Dafoe won’t be the bad guy since it’s revealed that he is playing Vulko, a mentor to Aquaman.
Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher and Ezra Miller are set to star in movie.
