This isn’t the Batmobile photo leak we deserved, but it’s the one we needed.

Zack Snyder, director of the highly anticipated film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, tweeted out an image of the new Batmobile on Wednesday.

Here’s a real picture of the #Batmobile.

Snyder tweeted the image after Instagram user amacro13 posted alleged images of the Batmobile, parked somewhere in Detroit, where filming began a few months ago.

It seems Snyder wanted to set the record straight and share out the shiny, high-res images of Batman’s choice of transportation. The only other image we’ve seen of the Batmobile was in May, when Snyder shared an image of a brooding Batman, played byBen Affleck, posing next to the car.

The new design isn’t as military-esque as the one of Christopher Nolan’s days and embraces some of the aesthetic of the classic Batmobile. Needless to say, this is a beast of a vehicle.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, will hit theaters in March 2016.
