New Documentary Focuses on the Evolution of the Batmobile
Comic hero Batman has been around since 1939 and unlike other superheroes has no real superpowers which is what made the Batmobile that very important to the story of Batman. A new documentary looks into every aspect of the Batmobile’s evolution right from the early comics to the animated series and everything in between. There’s plenty of in-movie footage and words from stunt drivers and creators like George Barris.
Produced by Warner Brothers the documentary is likely to be released in time for the 2012 holiday season along with a Batman movie box set. In addition to interviews with actors like Adam West and Christopher Bale the documentary covers the cars from many different perspectives. There’s commentary by director Tim Burton and even stunt driver George Cottle who piloted the Tumbler Batmobile in The Dark Knight.Visitors to this year’s Comic-Con were treated to a special preview of the film. To get a hold of either the digital download or a Blu-ray copy you will have to wait till the end of the holiday season.
