Batman fans in Dallas got a surprising treat as the Batmobile parks and displays in Downtown Dallas according to a WFAA article from February 18 which reports,
“At the exhibit, Batman fans got a chance to get an up-close look at the Batmobile and other items including costumes from the movie, which will star Robert Pattinson in the titular role.
Fans even got to see the Batsuit that Pattinson will don in the movie.
“We wanted the Batsuit and the Batmobile to look obviously like it was designed by one man, by Batman himself,” producer Dylan Clark said in a press release promoting the pop-up. “The suit is tactical, it’s military, it’s purpose-driven, it’s practical. It’s also iconic; Batman has his own emblem, his cowl, his cape. We chose a design that Bruce Wayne, at 30 years old, would have built.”
Fans on Thursday also got to see the costumes for Selina Kyle/Catwoman, The Riddler and The Penguin.”
The Batmobile, costumes, the entire exhibit as well as giveaways were all displayed in preparation for the upcoming Batman Reboot according to an NBC 5 News article from February 17. They say,
“Promoters said there will also be giveaways for a limited time, while supplies last.
The film, which is rated PG-13, hits theaters on March 4 and pits a younger, earlier version of the Caped Crusader against a sadistic killer in Gotham’s underworld.
“The Batman” marks the debut of Robert Pattinson under the cowl. He’ll be joined onscreen by Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, and Andy Serkis as Bruce Wayne’s faithful attendant Alfred Pennyworth.”
While everyone was indeed excited for both the show and the exhibit, the Batmobile however, wasn’t allowed to be taken for a spin.
