The Batmobiles are making their way across the country for the Batmobile tour sponsored by Warner Bros. Pictures.  Earlier this week the vehicles made a stop at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

Fans were thrilled to see the dark knight’s “rad ride”.  The ones displayed were the real ones used in the movies and the 1966 Batman TV series.  They are not the replicas.  Batman fans were treated to a first-hand look at all the bat-turn levers, laser beams, ejection seat, navigation systems, and all the gadgets and weapons that the Batmobiles are equipped with.

The Batmobile tour coincides with the December 4th release of The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

News With A Twist Reporter Kenny Lopez takes a look at what makes these superhero vehicles so super and unique.
