The Suicide Squad just hit Hollywood. In advance of the anticipated summer movie, due out Aug. 5, Warner Bros. is displaying a wide selection of costumes and props featuring DC Comics’ off-kilter band of baddies for visitors who go on the studio tour. This week, Warners previewed the exhibit, which also includes artifacts from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in its museum. In the coming months, the studio will rotate in new pieces from upcoming DC-based films like Wonder Woman and Justice League, as well as its stable of TV shows, including Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl.
In next summer’s DC super-villain team-up Suicide Squad, the Joker (Jared Leto) has his own sweet set of wheels. Called the Vaydor, it’s a kit car designed and sold by a gear head named Matt McEntegart, who lives in northern Florida. “I wanted aggressive, angry, and low to the ground.” Related: Behind the Scenes Photos of ‘Suicide Squad’ That description basically shouts “super-villain,” and sure enough, when Suicide Squad came calling, he was more than happy to let his handiwork be featured in the film. The new Batmobile (DC/Warner Bros) The car can be any color, but both the one McEntegart showed to Fox 13 and the model used for Suicide Squad is painted a sort of hot purple, which looks great under the neon lights of the Gotham City night.
Update May 27, 2015: New footage uploaded to social media on Wednesday reveals a Bat-suited stuntman on top of the Jokermobile. Just over a week ago we got our first peek at the Joker’s sweet ride in Suicide Squad, a pimped-out Vaydor “supercar.” Now get ready for a glimpse of the latest incarnation of the O.G. supercar in action. Fan-spies camped out on the Toronto set of Suicide Squad this weekend captured video of a chase between Joker’s ride and the brand-new Batmobile. The slow-speed pursuit, which will presumably be sped up in post-production, gives us a good look at Batman’s vehicle.
