The Batmobile Is Part of the New Millennium Falcon

Not the ship we want, but the ship we deserve

Director Zack Snyder has been on a bit of a Star Wars kick lately, tweeting out various pictures from the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice set that riff on classic Star Wars visuals. This morning J.J. Abrams and his production company Bad Robot have struck back.

A YouTube clip entitled "Hunka Junk" features a long, lingering tour of the exterior of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars: Episode VII, accompanied by John Williams' classic score. Midway through, the music shifts into Hans Zimmer's work from The Dark Knight trilogy, with the camera eventually settling upon a small addition to the Falcon's exterior — one that will look very familiar to fans of Christopher Nolan's films.

The move comes not long after Snyder revealed his take on the Batmobile, and with Bad Robot's Twitter account calling out Snyder directly it's likely just a matter of time before the Batman v. Superman team responds in kind.
