Just days after Zack Snyder confirmed that a rogue Imperial Stormtrooper was responsible for stealing the Batmobile from the set of his currently-lensing BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE in Detroit, a mysterious new video has emerged from the set of the also currently-lensing STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Entitled "Hunka Junk," Director J.J. Abrams posted a flyby of The Millenium Falcon that reveals that The Caped Crusader may have somehow found himself transported to A Galaxy Far, Far Away...

The Batmobile seen hitching a ride a la Boba Fett in the SLAVE-1 is The Tumbler, last seen in Christopher Nolan's DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY. 

If you're not playing along, both filmmakers have been keeping their projects in the public eye through a series of lighthearted back-and-forths featuring mashups of characters from the BATMAN/SUPERMAN/STAR WARS universes.

Hey, but we can play that, too! Here's what's happening at Rock Father HQ today...

Stay tuned...
