This November, Justice League will bring our favorite DC heroes together in one epic film. At the forefront is a character you may be familiar with and his name is Batman. Being the only non Metahuman, Batman must utilize his cunning detective work, his combat skills, and weaponry along with his trusty Batmobile to take care of business.
Ever since the fall of Superman, #Batman and #WonderWoman are searching to find the others to stop the threat that’s looming closer to Earth. To do this, Batman has created multiple machines to help him do his dirty work. We’ve already seen the Batmobile in action along with what Batman dubs the Night Crawler:
Seeing that Batman’s super powers are being rich, it’s feasible to believe that Batman would go the extra mile to create these machines to not only help himself but his entire team. As you can see here, Batman is allowing #Cyborg to use his Night Crawler which only gives us more of a reason to believe that he can play well with others.
The Batmobile and the Night Crawler aren’t the only machines Batman will be using in this film. Another piece of high tech Batman has concocted is similar to the Batwing, only much bigger. He calls it the Flying Fox.
What Is The Flying Fox?
Entertainment Weekly has just released this concept art depicting the exterior of the Flying Fox. Famous production designer Patrick Tatopoulos spoke with EW to gives us some insight into Batman’s new toy:
“You can put three Batmobiles in the lower part of it. I didn’t want to do a sleek airplane; it needed to feel like an extremely avant-garde classic. With the maneuverability of a jet—but it can actually carry things.”
The key words here are “carry things.” While Batman has plenty of gadgets and machines to house inside of this type of airplane, apparently he’s using it for more than just a storage unit.
The Flying Fox Will Act As The Justice League’s Headquarters
Tatopoulos continued to speak to EW giving a more detailed description to what’s housed inside of this craft:
“The bottom part of the jet is a huge cargo bay, which the Batmobile sits in. The second floor is like a cultural center, with computer terminals. The third story is the cockpit. Whatever floor you are on, you can see [the other] two stories.”
It appears as though Batman has constructed this massive aircraft to not only help the #JusticeLeague get from point A to point B, but that it will also act as a moving headquarters for the Justice League. In Marvel terms, think of this vehicle as a much smaller Helicarrier but bigger than the Quinjet.
What Other Gadgets Or Vehicles Does Batman Have Up His Sleeve?
The #Batmobile, the Night Crawler, and the Flying Fox have all been confirmed to appear in Justice League. #BatmanvSupermanDawnofJustice introduced us to Zack Snyder’s version of the #Batwing so it’s plausible that this aircraft could also make an appearance. There’s also been rumors that a Batsubmarine could have an appearance at some point.
Batman is clearly doing everything he can to help his team win no matter the costs. He’s certainly become more of a team player as of late. Thanks to Superman, Batman is a better hero now than ever before. After all, #Superman helped people see the best part of themselves. It surly did for Batman.
