I guess the thinking from J.J. Abrams and Co. is, ‘Leaks be damned.’
After a series of tweets that have shown full-size versions of the Millennium Falcon and X-Wing being built for Star Wars: Episode VII, and Adam Driver in good guy gear, Abrams’ production company, Bad Robot, tweeted out a YouTube video showing the exterior of Han Solo’s famous ship. The brief 37-second clip – titled Hunka Junk – starts off with John Williams’ famous Star Wars theme, before using snippets from Hans Zimmer’s music from Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The spot ends with what looks like the Batmobile stuck on the bottom of the Falcon.
This is a none-too-subtle dig at Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder, who has been tweeting photos blaming a Stormtrooper for swiping the Batmobile, and others showing Superman as a Jedi and Batman with R2BIN.
