Holy Bat-Signal!

Little Caesars has flashed the caped crusader's symbol and created a new menu item, partnering with the soon-to-be-released "The Batman" movie.

The Batman Calzony is a version of the Detroit-based global chain's Crazy Calzone and a pizza. It's a pepperoni pizza that's folded into a bat shape with wings with a calzone-like stuffed crust. The whole pizza-calzone creation resembles the caped crusader's famed logo. For the pizza part, The Batman Calzony features pepperoni pizza with parmesan and buttery calzone-like crust. In the calzone part, there's a garlic white sauce, cheese and julienned pepperoni. It comes with a side of Crazy Sauce and is $7.99. The new item will be available for a limited time.

“Anyone can now bring superhero vibes to pizza night by trying the new The Batman Calzony," Jeff Klein, chief marketing officer at Little Caesars, said in a news release. “It’s the most delicious part of our partnership with the upcoming film 'The Batman.' ”

The movie, starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, is expected in theaters on March 4.
