With Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice just over 7 months away. Zack Snyder has ramped up his campaign to bring DC into the light once again. Recently, Empire Magazine who is known for getting exclusive photos and stories on upcoming block busters, recently released its images from the upcoming ‘Batman v Superman: DOJ.’
The feature released in Empire Magazine had an interview with movie set designer Patrick Tatopoulos. He spoke a bit about his inspiration for the design of The Batmobile, Batwing and the BatCave. He claims his inspiration came from the upcoming Justice League which isn’t set to hit theaters till 2017. Justice League won’t even begin filming until next year. So What does this mean for BvS..?
In an interview with Empire, Patrick Tatopoulos has this to say:
With The Justice League coming, it influences my designs of the Batcave, the Batmobile, the Batwing.
He went on to say:
We are creating a world for Batman – every set, every prop, is real. We have to be ready for whats next.
Tatopoulos explains that:
“He is not driving a Formula 1 car, he’s driving a tank that is very sexy looking,” He adds. “Batman is rougher, tougher, and grungier. So everything is rough: the weapons, the suit and the car.”
Tatopoulos goes on further to say:
“There are machine guns mounted on the front. When you first see the Batmobile, it is being fixed. It is not – boom! – coming out of the garage brand new. It is scratched, damaged.”
With all that being said, it makes you wonder what exactly DC has planned for the Justice League. Director Zack Snyder even mentioned that they originally had a plan for the Justice League, and all the other movies are just there to set that up.
Snyder went on further to mention that the DCCU is like a sandbox that has boundaries, but everyone is able to play in that sandbox. In other words other directors of DC properties will have room to play with the style and tone of their perspective projects, but will still need to be mindful of what the overall goal is for DC and the Justice League.
I mean come on, he brought the curl back!!
