We’d previously seen glimpses of the Dawn of Justice Batmobile and costumes for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman when the LA Clippers’ DeAndre Johnson visited the Batman Exhibit at the Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour Hollywood. Now we’re getting a closer look as Warner Bros. begins its hype-building machine at the Licensing Expo this week in Las Vegas.
They’ve sent us some nice high res shots of the Batmobile, including its interior, as well as the costumes – I imagine they’ll look brighter and more vibrant in these pics than they will in the final movie, due out March next year, if WB uses the same color processing they did for Man of Steel. I’m guessing we’ll be seeing the Batmobile and these costumes again next month, at San Diego Comic-Con. If so, we’ll get more pics then. Stay tuned!

With the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer officially released, Warner Bros. has allowed Bleacher Reports to publish a new video yesterday of NBA player DeAndre Jordan on a tour of the Batman 75th anniversary exhibit that’s part of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. The exhibit houses many costumes, props, and vehicles from the Batman movies starring Keaton, Kilmer, Clooney, and Bale – but they surprised Jordan with the costumes and Batmobile from the latest movie too.
With the focus on Batman, the video gives some nice close-ups of the newest Batsuit, including the cowl, the chest emblem, gauntlets, and utility belt. But it also gives a brief glance at the costumes of Superman and Wonder Woman. Not much new with Superman’s duds, but with Wonder Woman we get to see how it looks compared to the heavily processed teaser image of Gal Gadot in costume. It looks much more colorful and in line with her palette from the comic books. And then of course, there’s a lot of quick cuts showing off the Batmobile. How are you liking them?

With Doomsday and the Damian Wayne Robin in my hands, it’s starting to dawn on me that the DC Universe Classics line has finally come to an end – not a hiatus, as I had hoped when Mattel pulled the line from retail, but an end. So there’s no better time to talk about what-ifs.
We all have our favorite characters that never made it into the line. For this installment of Soapbox Sunday, I’ll take a look at my most wanted, and give you my picks for what if we could have one more figure from each of the DC family of characters. Then you can tell me yours.
