Footage of the shiny new Batmobile in action, on the set of the upcoming film ‘Suicide Squad’, has surfaced online, and it’s looking every bit as impressive in motion as you would hope.

The new car will make its debut when a new regeneration of the ‘Batman’ franchise commences next year, with Ben Affleck taking on the role in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’.

Excitingly, it looks like the souped-up supercar will also be putting in an appearance in ‘Suicide Squad’, a new spin-off film that will focus on some of Gotham City’s most famous villains, such as The Joker and Harley Quinn.

New footage recorded on the ‘Suicide Squad’ set in Toronto shows The Joker at the wheel of a luxury sports car, being chased through the city by Batman.

The new car was previously unveiled last year, in the background of the first official photo of Ben in his new superhero role.

‘Suicide Squad’ boasts an all-star cast, with Jared Leto undergoing a dramatic transformation to take on the role of The Joker.

Gone are his trademark beard and long hair, replaced by a clean-shaven look, while even The Joker character himself has had quite a makeover from his recent incarnations, now sporting a grill and some very prominent body art, including the word ‘damaged’ across his forehead.

Other stars making up the cast include Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and supermodel Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.

'Suicide Squad' is currently slated for release on 5 August 2016.
