H.R. Giger was contacted in 1994 to design a Batmobile for Batman Forver. His unique "X" shaped design was to include articulated front legs/mandibles, retractable fins, and gatling gun emplacements on each of the four pods on the sides of the vehicle. The design also combined side and forward intake ports with organinic spines and a central pod connecting the four legs.

Giger's Alien is suberb, as are his Biomechanical paintings and various sculptures. But around Alien 3, I feel his spark began to dim. Alien 3 concept dog alien, species, this batmobile. Not digging them.

Yeah, this is analogous to Ang Lee's "Hulk-who? I do what i want" attitude.
