The lightning is one of four films in the DC Extended Universe coming out in 2023. But it’s not just the tabloid fodder of Ezra Miller that can draw crowds, but also the appearance of Batman. Now, fans have gotten an early look at one of the Caped Crusader’s most iconic vehicles, the Batwing.
This week, the Twitter account for The Flash Film News posted a picture of new goods for the coming time The lightning movie showing Batwing with the words, “Looks like THE FLASH merchandise is hitting store shelves. Here’s your look at the Batwing that matches our description earlier this month.”
The Batwing – dubbed “Ultimate Batwing” on the box art – design is actually a variation that most Batman fans were familiar with – that is, the version seen in Tim Burton’s 1989 film – you know, before The Joker gunned it down in in the middle of Gotham City. Batwing was also seen in the 1995s Batman foreverbesides Christopher Nolan’s The dark rider rises (albeit with a seriously scary design) and Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman (where it looked as bad as the movie itself).
Fortunately, the Batwing will likely be piloted by Michael Keaton, marks his long-awaited return to the Batman character. (Ben Affleck is also returning, but the buzz is exponentially greater for Keaton.) On his return, Keaton said: “The writing was actually really good. So I thought, why not? It’s cool to get in, and I’m excited to see if I can make it.” No doubt Keaton can still pull it off, and judging by the toy design, the “ultimate” Batwing will be another welcome return to form.
Hopefully, fans will see Michael Keaton as Batman in first trailer for The lightningwhich will reportedly premiere during Super Bowl LVII In february. The trailer is then expected to be mounted on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniaout later that week.
The lightning coming to the cinema 16 June 2023.
