2016 Camaro Rumored For Batman Vs. Superman



Could Lex Luthor be seen cruising down the street in a custom 2016 Chevy Camaro during Batman Vs. Superman?

Well, the rumor is the new Chevy Camaro may be appearing in the Zack Snyder movie.

USA Today, of all places, reports on the possibility as Chevy has filed a trademark for a "Camaro Krypton" and "Krypton" in addition to the car being built in Lansing, Michigan where Snyder filmed Batman Vs. Superman.

As of now, the rumor appears to be just that as the designer on the 2016 Camaro says it's news to him.

"I think that's just internet buzz, which is great," Oppenheiser told the Detroit Free Press, a sister publication to USA Today. "It's another thing about this segment of cars: there's always internet buzz." 

Oppenheimer continues with mention in which he may be attempting to steer (sorry, bad pun) people in the wrong direction.

"Sometimes when we come up with a new color in our studios, they just apply (for a trademark) in case we ever use it," Oppenheiser said. "We never said we're going to do anything with that color." 

It's possible the 2016 Chevy Camaro may be a product placement for the movie. Batman vs. Superman's predecessor, Man of Steel, revved up (sorry, another one) more than 100 contracts and an additional $160 million from corporate sponsors including Sears, Nokia, Wal-Mart and more.

As Kyrypton is the home planet of Superman - and also a reference to Kryptonite - perhaps if not Lex Luthor, Bruce Wayne might be driving the custom Camaro Krypon? Or maybe even Clark Kent?

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto in new character roles for the film. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.
