Cameos are nothing new in Pixar’s Cars Universe, but they almost got a little bit batty in the latest installment, Cars 3.
In a recent interview with Screen Junkies, director Brian Fee said that in an early draft of the film, Lightning McQueen almost ended up going to a Hollywood party that would have been full of movie stars, including two different generations of Batmobiles. That scene didn’t make the cut but it came pretty close. Fee said:
“At one point, part of the story took place in LA and we had a scene where McQueen went to a Hollywood hills party and it was full of actors, and we had the old Batmobile and the new Batmobile talking to each other at a party.”
Fee doesn’t explain exactly how much the Batmobiles would have been in the movie, but it would have been interesting to hear what they were talking about with each other. Would they merely be movie cars that are sharing movie production stories or would they actually be the property of Batman, or two different Batmen?
What do you guys think, would you have enjoyed seeing the iconic Batmobile as a cartoony cars character or did we all dodge a bullet?
