Early 'Justice League' Concept Art Shows Knightcrawler Vs. Parademon

New pieces of Justice League concept art have surfaced online, and they give a pretty awesome look at one of the film's main vehicles.

Joshua Viers, who served as a concept artist for the DC Extended Universe film, recently shared multiple pieces of the film's Knightcrawler, the sort of all-terrain tank vehicle that Bruce Wayne/Batman (Ben Affleck) uses in the movie.

The concept art features the Knightcrawler in quite a few setups, including facing off against one of Steppenwolf's (Ciran Hinds) parademons. Other pieces, which you can check out here, show a similar sort of situation, as well as alternate angles for the vehicle.

The Knightcrawler is just one of the intricately made pieces that Justice League brought onscreen. For production designer Patrick Tatopoulos, the Knightcrawler helps indicate a new sort of arc for Batman.

"To tell you the truth, I didn’t rethink anything." Tatopoulos told ComicBook.com. "Batman is the same man you saw in the last movie – his world expands. We see more of his world, we discover more aspects of his life and what he has. The Batcave becomes bigger, you realize there’s more. But a lot of those things were kind established on the first one. What’s exciting on this one, for me, is designing his jet now, the Flying Fox, designing a Batmobile that’s now here to destroy evil, that’s bumped up to the core. So that to me was anchored and very clear."

Justice League is now in theaters; Aquaman arrives on December 21, 2018; Shazam! on April 5, 2019; Wonder Woman 2 on November 1st, 2019; Cyborg on April 3, 2020; and Green Lantern Corps on July 24, 2020.
