Love the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or hate it, there’s no denying Batman has the coolest toys. The upcoming sequel, Justice League, promises to raise the bar for caped-crusader gadgetry and transform the Batmobile into the ultimate superhero vehicle.

We won’t see Bruce Wayne’s other car in theaters until December, but Mattel gave us a preview in the form of the most tricked out remote-control car we’ve ever seen.

The charcoal-gray, roughly 2 ft. long by 6-inch tall RC car features spoilers, giant, knobby wheels and was unveiled this week at the New York Toy Fair. According to Mattel, is a replica of the car Ben Affleck's Batman will drive in the new film based on DC Comic book heroes. 

It's an awesome-looking toy, and that's before we get to driving it or testing out its bazillion bat features.

The drivable car is fitted with cannons and Gatling guns that point in whatever direction you’re steering, the car chassis can lift a few inches for “jump mode” (the movie car jumps, this one does not) and there are functioning lights and engine sounds that grow louder and more intense as you increase throttle. 

Inside the cockpit is a six-inch tall Batman, his steely eyes focused straight ahead and his hands gripping the steering wheel, which he really steers as you steer the remote control. The cockpit lights also change as you drive. 

Yup, that's a tiny Batman in there.

Also inside that cockpit is a tiny POV camera. Using the associated app, you can see what the view would be were you actually riding shotgun in the Batmobile. The app also adds augmented reality, which mean you’ll see rockets and tracer fire coming out of the canon and gun. 

The car even emits exhaust. The Justice League Batmobile is equipped with a small oil reservoir that it burns through each time you rev the engine.

To be honest, this car, which will retail for $250 this fall, has the potential to be more popular than the movie.
