The Nu Model Batmobile

Like it or not, Batman Vs Superman is going forward. We say like it or not, because we at Happy Place are not nuts about the prospect of a Batman Vs Superman movie, which is being planned to be the set-up for a Justice League film.

Yes, superhero teams are the hot thing because of The Avengers, and Avengers 2, which is coming next summer, will certainly be a huge event. Not to mention superhero teams are hot because Guardians of the Galaxy is the biggest movie of the summer. Still, there’s danger signs everywhere, especially the casting of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, and director Zack Snyder, who’s certainly no Christopher Nolan.

So now that B V F is getting made, the Batman costume and the Batmobile pictures are out there, and here’s a picture of the new model Batmobile if you haven’t seen it yet. In all fairness, we think it looks pretty cool actually. As much as we love the Chris Nolan Batmans, the Batmobile seemed kind of odd to us, more like a Bat Hummer.

Now that you’ve seen Batman’s fly ride, is it a good omen to come, or will it be one of the few good things about Batman Vs Superman? Thoughts?

One of the things that strikes me as a huge competitive advantage is that unlike most technology companies that are based in either the US or Asia, Lenovo is pretty much evenly balanced between the US and China putting them closer to a future model of being more of a global company than one located in any one country. Let’s explore that this week. The...
