The Dark Knight Rises (2012): First Look At Batplane/Batwing?


picA twitter user posted the following image of what looks like a new vehicle for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.

"Just caught a glimpse of a #Batman vehicle being shot going into the Wabash Tunnel," tweeted Ross Petrocelli.

This could be Batman's Batplane, the Batwing, or Batgyro, as it is also been called.  At least, Batman-News thinks so.

The Batwing saw its debut in the Tim Burton/Michael Keaton Batman movie from 1989, and even the comics picked up on the name.

Also, it does resemble the Tumbler armor, I suppose.

Update: Two more pics have been snapped.

Update #2: Video:

The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters July 20th, 2012 and is directed by Christopher Nolan starring Christan Bale as Batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Cain as Alfred, Juno Temple and Josh Pence as a young Ra's al Ghul.
