When the full Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer was released last month, fans caught a brief glimpse at Batman's new Batwing ship, which is seen flying over an exploding pier. Since the shot is so quick, it isn't known if the Batwing caused this explosion, but it did upset some fans, because, in the comic books, Batman has a no-kill policy that he strictly adheres to. While we wait for even more footage to arrive from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the first full look at the Nightwing has been finally revealed.
As you can see below, the ship has guns mounted in the front, so it certainly is capable of creating the explosion seen briefly in the trailer. It's possible that Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder are straying from the comics to give fans a Batman (Ben Affleck) they have never seen before. There have been rumors that he is "semi-retired" when the movie starts, and he primarily fights crime with the use of drones and surveillance equipment. Given the rumored drone technology that Bruce may use, it's possible that he's not even flying the Batwing himself, or the ship may have also been taken over by the villainous Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). It's doubtful that we'll get any clear answers to these rumors anytime soon, but they certainly present a lot to think about.
Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Gal Gadot (Lois Lane) and Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth) round out the main cast. Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto and Scoot McNairy also star, although their roles have not been confirmed. Take a look at the new Batwing below, and let us know what you think.
