One of the first events at Licensing Expo 2015 was the public unveiling of the new Batmobile.
Yeah, we've seen it before. It's been photographed and shown in spy videos and glimpsed in the movie's teaser trailer. It even shows up in Suicide Squad, which is currently filming. But today is the first time members of the public have been allowed to get up close and personal with the monster machine.
The huge vehicle is on display at the Expo, which is taking place this week in Las Vegas, and a few members of the media were on hand to film and photograph it, giving us closer and more detailed looks at it than we've yet seen.

A few attendees even grabbed video at the event, granting us a great chance to listen to the machine roar up close.

Here's another. No need to turn up your speakers — this thing is loud.

The costumes worn by Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) are on display as well.
Licensing Expo is a convention aimed at retailers, where new wares like toys that tie-in with forthcoming movies and other media are shown off for the first time. It is closed to the public.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is due in theaters March 25, 2016.
