Pixar’s Cars 3 opened as the number one film at the box office this weekend, with many audience members declaring the film to be the best of trilogy. The film reunited audiences with Lightning McQueen and introduced several new characters to the franchise, but it was initially going to feature an appearance by two vehicles that are familiar to fans of the DC Comics superhero Batman. In an interview with Screen Junkies News, director Brian Fee revealed that the film originally featured cameo appearances by two version of the Batmobile earlier in the film’s development.
Fee explained that the Batmobile’s would have made their appearance in a scene that was omitted once the story had changed:
“We had a scene early on, it didn’t make it into the film beause the story evolved away from it […] At one point, part of the story took place in LA and we had a scene where McQueen went to a Hollywood hills party and it was full of actors, and so we had the old Batmobile and the new Batmobile talking to each other at a party.”

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that No. 95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage! It is directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2”) and produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short).
Directed by Brian Fee, the film stars Owen Wilson, Armie Hammer, Cristela Alonzo, Nathan Fillion, Bonnie Hunt, Tony Shalhoub, Katherine Helmond, Cheech Marin, Paul Dooley, and Larry the Cable Guy.
Cars 3 will be released in theaters on June 16, 2017.

7 Animated Marvel Movies That Should Be Made
There are a lot of great Marvel stories that won’t get live-action adaptations. Now, DC dominates the animated movie side of things, but now that Marvel has Disney behind them they should start developing a few direct-to-video projects.
Sony is releasing an animated Spider-Man movie in 2018 featuring Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker, a smart way to introduce the fun character to a larger audience. Some stories just don’t need live-action adaptions, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be turned into animated features. Modern 2D animation is looking better than ever, and I think the Mouse House need to invest a little bit of time into these endeavors.
So here are my top 7 Marvel stories that should be turned into animated movies. I know some of these characters might be owned by studios other than Disney, so Fox and Sony should be paying attention also. Are yours not on the list?
