Is Baby Driver’s Edgar Wright teasing a Batman project?

May 10th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Holy mind blowing picture, Batman!

Edgar Wright, he of Baby Driver, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and other awesomeness fame, just put an image (below) of the tyre from the Batman 66 Batmobile on his Instagram and it’s blown our minds!

I mean, it COULD just be that he wanted to post an image of Batman’s wheel… but what if it’s not?

We know that Matt Reeves is currently working on the live-action Batman movie for the DC Cinematic Universe but could there be something else in the works?

Sure, we’re speculating but just think… imagine a Batman 1966 movie for the extended cinematic universe we’re hearing so much about (here) directed by Wright! Oh, my…

Or perhaps he’s working on a third animated Batman 66 movie with DC Animation? Who knows… but with all the rumours that Warners are talking to some major directors to step into their cinematic universe after Steven Spielberg signed on for the Black Hawk movie (here) we would imagine Wright is just the sort of talent they want.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
