Screw The New Batmobile, We’re More Interested in Bruce Wayne’s 1963 Corvette Stingray Daily Driver

Batman may be driving a jet-powered Batmobile while fighting crime in Gotham City, but Bruce Wayne’s daily driver is actually a vintage Chevrolet Corvette. Robert Pattinson, the actor that will play Batman in the next iteration of the movie (The Batman), was spotted driving a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in Liverpool, England, where filming for the upcoming Batman movie is currently taking place.
While a Corvette is not as mean-looking as a Batmobile, it's a fitting drive for a crime-fighting superhero.
Finished in black, the Coke bottle-shaped muscle car could very well replace the Batmobile in the movie if you ask me. Granted, it still needs jet power and a few accessories, but it could get the job done. Video footage from the location suggests that the Stingray will be featured in the movie as well, so you’ll get a chance to see it in action. Let’s hope that it won’t get wrecked, though.
The 1963 Corvette Stingray is one of the most iconic Corvettes ever built. The first model year of the second-generation Corvette, it introduced a brand-new design that was radically different from the original model, as well as a new lineup of V-8 engines. The C2 Corvette debuted with 5.4-liter small-block V-8 mill rated at up to 360 horsepower, but output increased to 435 horses with the introduction of the 7.0-liter big-block in 1967.
The Batman movie was delayed until 2022
Originally scheduled to debut in June 2021, the upcoming Batman movie was delayed twice due to the coronavirus pandemic. The film is currently supposed to be released in the United States on March 4, 2022.
The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves and tells the story of a younger Batman that explores the corruption in Gotham City and how it may tie to his own family. He also encounters the Riddler, a serial killer. The film’s cast includes Robert Pattinson as Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman will be followed by two sequels, while a spin-off prequel television series is in development for HBO Max.
