Batman Helicopter Show - Bataman Takes Role Of Bat-Copter Pilot
Helicopters on batmangamesonly.com ?
Let's recall of few previous Batman episodes which include helicopters in certain way. Do you remember Batman Hunt The Penguin where Batman handles ground obstacles and helicopter aerial attacks from the seat of the dirt-bike? Did you play Superman's Hero's flight already? Our flying superhero Super-man, rushes through the clouds, between high skyscrapers, avoiding obstacles, fighter jets and helicopters. And if you ever played any of Hulk's games you must have come across "Hulk Smash Up", where green gigantic bruiser smashes down whole buildings and throws off helicopters like they were kids toys.
Anyway, this is the very first flash game ever in which Batman actually drives a helicopter, which is kinda odd if we take into account the fact that it was one of his first means of transportation. The first 'Batcopter' was used in series 'Batman' back in 1966. The latest use of Batcopter was in the cult movie "The Dark Knight Rises", where it was called simply the 'Bat' and where it became the Batman's primary vehicle. Remember the bomb chase scene?.
Above you can see a scene from the movie "The Dark Knight Rises" depicting bat-copter (BAT) in action. There was a photograph of the "Bat" leaked to public prior to the film's release, and it brought a lot of controversy among Batman fans with lot of guessing, and has long been a subject of discussion on forums - whether this vehicle was "Batplane", also known as "Batwing" or it was really a Bat-copter, or maybe something else? What do you say?
And this is how Bat-copter looks like in Lego world:
And in the image below, we see Batman and Robin, carrying out final preparations before taking off in an aircraft otherwise borrowed from FOX TV only for the purpose of making 5 episodes of 1966 TV series. The budget was very tight at the time as it cost only 750$ per day.
