Not only does Batman have a sleek new Batmobile in “Batman v Superman,” but his alter ego Bruce Wayne also drives a flashy car.
Wayne drives a green 1957 Aston Martin in the film, according to a recent article in Bloomberg Pursuits.
You can spot the car when Wayne heads to a gala hosted by Lex Luthor.
Here’s a better look at the car, a Mark III.
In Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” trilogy, Wayne drives three different Lamborghinis — two Murciélagos in “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight,” and an Aventador in “The Dark Knight Rises.” (Murciélago means bat in Spanish.)
Why the change?
The Aston Martin belongs to “Batman v Superman” director Zack Snyder. It’s been a favorite car of Snyder’s since he began filmmaking.
Bloomberg Pursuits reports he purchased his first used Aston Martin for $28,000. After the success of his 2007 movie “300,” which made $456 million worldwide, Warner Bros. bought him a $350,000 Aston Martin Vanquish and offered him a production deal.
“They don’t really do that in Hollywood anymore,” said Snyder.
While the car is a favorite of Snyder’s, many Batfans will be quick to notice it’s also a favorite of James Bond. The latter is often cited as Britain’s Batman and Bond drove an Aston Martin DB10 in last year’s “Spectre.”
For those who like to make the comparison between the two, this will only add fuel to the fire.
“Batman v Superman” is in theaters March 25, 2016.
