Batman and Christine

Talk about a perfect match. Christine—we’re talking about the car, here—with her tendency to become attached, nee fixated, on her male owners, would make for the perfect Batmobile for our Caped Crusader. Batman needs just such a vehicle. She’d make for the ideal partner for him, able to think for herself, able to assist him in so many ways. And Batman, with his superpower of will, would be able to restrain Christine’s more murderous impulses. Tell me it wouldn’t strike terror into the hearts of criminals to see Batman bearing down on them behind the wheel of that 1958 Plymouth Fury. And Christine would be able to repair herself if she took any damage, too. Yes, someone needs to get the man and the machine together.

Matt Reeves is going to do the next best thing, though. The design of the Batmobile in his forthcoming THE BATMAN, featuring a darker, more slightly deranged title character (making him an even better match for Christine), is in point of fact based on Christine! Said Reeves: “It [the Batmobile] has to make an appearance out of the shadows to intimidate, so I thought of it almost like Stephen King’s Christine. I liked the idea of the car itself as a horror figure, making an animalistic appearance to really scare the hell out of the people Batman’s pursuing”.

Batman and Catwoman made the cover(s) of the magazine, too.
