New Batman v Superman Clip of the Batmobile in Action is a Scene Right Out of Arkham Knight
Though the last official trailer for Batman v Superman debuted around a week ago, that doesn't mean that's the last fans will see of the movie before it premieres. A new clip from the film has recently hit the web, and this time its subject is the Dawn of Justice Batmobile.



The clip's not very long, but it definitely shows just how awesome this new iteration of the Batmobile is going to be. And fans of the Batman: Arkham games probably found this scene a bit reminiscent of a task they've performed time and time again within the final addition to the trilogy of games, Arkham Knight. As the Batmobile rockets around a curved exit way, through automatic, vertical sliding doors, this could have almost been a scene from the game itself, as Arkham Knight also features an extremely similar exit/entryway at the front of the GCPD building.



There's obviously a lot of source material that's gotten integrated into the film, as an older, bulkier Bruce Wayne will be featured just like in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, an ex-special forces Alfred who was hired by the Waynes as a bodyguard, just like Batman: Earth One, and a Batman with a distinct fighting style and similar gadgets to the one from the Arkham games. Of course, there's tons more of similarities as well, such as multiple scenes from the trailers that directly parallel and pay homage to panels from The Dark Knight Returns and other comics. Hopefully with so much of this film mirroring the source material, some of its greatness will end up rubbing off on the film itself.

The wait is almost over, as Batman v Superman is now just 33 days away. It would certainly seem that Ben Affleck and the rest of the creative team that brought something to this version of Batman have absolutely nailed it, so hopefully that first impression sticks. Fans have just a little over a month left to find out for sure when the Justice League begins to come together for the very first time on the big screen on March 25th.
