After false rumors spread online yesterday that the Batmobile had been stolen and escalated to the point of the Detroit Police department launching an investigation, Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder took to Twitter to poke fun at the rumors.
Earlier today, Snyder tweeted out a photo of the Gotham City Police department apprehending a Stormtrooper, who appears to have stolen the Batmobile. Along with the photo, Snyder wrote, "Case closed."
In addition to poking fun at the Batmobile theft reports, Snyder is also continuing an ongoing joke he has with Star Wars Episode VII director J.J. Abrams. The joke has included Snyder tweeting Superman as a SuperJedi, Abrams tweeting Star Actor John Boyea as BoyegaMan, Snyder tweeting Batman & R2BIN, and Abrams tweeting the C3PD Crusader.
The ball is now in J.J. Abrams court. How will he respond to the alleged theft of the Batmobile by a Stormtrooper?
