GI: The Batmobile has been an integral part of Batman since the character’s earliest days. He’s used it to scour the streets of Gotham City before he ever encountered the Joker, in fact. The Batmobile has been central to some of Batman’s most memorable movie scenes, too, from cutting stilt-wearing clowns off at the knees in Batman Returns to splitting into an armored motorcycle in The Dark Knight. The vehicle has been incorporated in games, to varying degrees of success. With Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady Studios is finally giving the Batmobile the attention it deserves. We spent a lot of time during our cover-story visit discussing the vehicle. Read on to learn more about its creation and how it will fundamentally change the way the Dark Knight fights crime.
