“Knightmare Batman” Getting New Name; Possibly Hinting At What’s To Come

One of the most talked about parts of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice footage has been the desert “dream sequence” showing Batman in a brown trench coat fighting soldiers and facing an evil-looking Superman.

This version of Batman had been dubbed “Knightmare Batman” after the reveal of a figurine at last year’s New York Comic Con.


However, according to an Amazon listing, that Batman variant will also be known as “Future Showdown” Batman in at least one toy.

The previously-revealed Funko Pop remains “Knightmare Batman,” though, and even has packaging to back that up (“Future Showdown” doesn’t).

The idea of a “future showdown” here isn’t far off from what many people have projected: Batman and the Justice League facing off against Darkseid and his Parademons are a part of the “Knightmare,” as far as anyone can tell.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016.
