Batman Keeps The Tumbler

There aren't many cars more bad-ass than the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. Except the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan's first two installments of Batman movies is one such vehicle. In fact, that car is more bad-ass than nearly anything with four wheels, though the Marauder would certainly give it a run for its money.

Since Batman is invariably more bad-ass than alter ego Bruce Wayne, he drives the Tumbler. And, as some new photos of the film set confirm, he's going to continue driving the Tumbler in the next Batman movie.

The Dark Knight Rises is set to be one of the big blockbusters of next summer, with filming going on now. Because the Tumbler was destroyed in fiery carnage during the last movie—The Dark Knight—it was unknown whether the funky bat-tank was going to be back for the third flick, or if it was going to be replaced by a new Batmobile.

As the picture above shows, the Tumbler is alive and well. It was snapped en route to a Pittsburgh movie set last month, and was reportedly seen along with the Batpod motorcycle. I suppose it could be used solely for a flashback scene from earlier in the trilogy, but more likely the Bat will continue to drive the Tumbler in this third and final Nolan Batman picture.

Some believed that a new Batmobile would be showcased in the last Nolan Batman film, but let's face it—the Tumbler's a winner. If it ain't broke (or destroyed by fiery carnage), don't fix it.

The Tumbler, like Christian Bale, will be a featured part of all three films. Bale returns with other Batman trilogy staples Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Gary Oldman and will be joined by newcomers like Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Juno Temple.

Come a long way since Adam West's days of the batmobile.

It is nice to the return of the Tumbler. Unlike Joel Schumacher, Christopher Nolan's movies are so good that he doesn't need to introduce a new Batmobile as a gimmick to get people back to the theater.
