Last month, one of the year's most anticipated action movies was screened in Fiji and if you're a DC Comic superhero fan, you were surely in for a treat with the 2017 Justice League movie.

Not only is the movie packed with A listing celebrity stars like Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Jason Momoa, the movie features action thrilling moments that keep fans eager for more.

The most intriguing part of watching the $US300 million ($F626 million) budgeted film would be the high class vehicles used in this action packed movie.

The character Bruce Wayne (Batman) played by Ben Affleck seems to have a good taste in cars when it comes to expensive automobiles keeping in mind the latest Batmobile featured in the film.

A well recognised car brand featured in this film would be the Mercedes Benz, with two of its vehicles being used by Ben Affleck (Batman) and Gal Gadot ( Diana Prince - Wonder Woman) in the movie.

According to Justice League sees the dynamic new E-Class Cabriolet makes its big screen debut as the car of choice of Wonder Woman. As you would expect of a Mercedes-Benz, its performance is second to none and it's a natural in front of the camera. But the E-Class Cabriolet isn't the only Mercedes-Benz on show as well as a host of supporting vehicles, the movie also features the extraordinary Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept car driven in the film by Bruce Wayne (Batman).

According to the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision is powered by AMG's 577hp, 5.5 litre twin-turbo V-8, capable of producing 590 lb-ft of twist. The aluminium structure and carbon-fibre parts envisioned by AMG keep weight down to a claimed 3053 pounds — lower than the pipe-dream target weight declared during development of the McLaren SLR.

The interior of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo features a gullwing-shaped dash, which Mercedes says makes the doors themselves appear to extend from it, and futuristic instrumentation presented on a glass surface. Further, Mercedes says that a number of controls are inspired by those of its Formula 1 cars, and the arrangement of the gauge cluster is reminiscent of the cockpit of a fighter jet.

Unfortunately not a lot of details has been released about the actual specifications of the 2017 Justice Legue batmobile unlike its predecessors. More Batman fans would love to learn more about the vehicles and how it has evolved over previous years.
