Could Ben Affleck’s Batmobile Be Taking To The Streets As Early As This Summer?
A new filming update has surfaced for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel which we still are calling Batman vs. Superman. We know that the production will be pumping nearly $131 million dollars into the state of Michigan, basically taking over the city of Detroit early this year when filming begins. Batman-On-Film (via ManOfSteelFanpage.Com) have found some new potential info about what will be shot out in the open and when. It seems like we could be getting a look at Ben Affleck‘s Batmobile in the next few months:
Happy New Year! I have a minor update regarding location shooting BvS. I was told that location shooting of vehicle chase scenes (read: Batmobile scenes) will not take place until the Summer. I am under the impression that other location shooting, including exteriors — in addition to studio shooting — could begin as soon as next month, but that has not been confirmed. I’ll continue to keep my ears to the ground.
Now if a Batmobile chase scene is being filmed in the summer, it would make a lot of sense for Warner Bros. to release a picture of the car (and possibly Affleck in costume if we haven’t seen a pic by then) instead of letting the internet’s first look at the Batman‘s ride being a spy pic or grainy cellphone footage of the scene being filmed. Releasing an official image before something could be spotted by paparazzi out in the open seems to be what most studios are starting to do a lot more lately. It allows the studio to show off whatever the person/place/object is before an unofficial image can be judged unfairly by fans. I think that will definitely be the case with Batfleck. You remember the riots when he was announced, right? So there we go. Filming will start soon and a car chase may be filmed as early as the beginning of this summer. What do you think about the latest (potential) filming update?
