“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” production designer Patrick Tatopoulos takes us behind the scenes of creating a new Batmobile in an exclusive clip from “DC All Access.”
Tatopoulos explains his process for redesigning Batman’s iconic ride. “In the aesthetic of the film I thought that everything should be hanging or look like bats, but subliminally,” Tatopoulos said. “The car, when the cockpit opens, it looks like bat wings. Everything should have a slight undertone of the subliminal idea of a bat.”
Ramping up to the film’s release date later this month, “Batman v Superman” marketing has been inescapable. Following the Oscars, stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Jessie Eisenberg played their roles as Superman, Batman and Lex Luthor in a skit for “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in which Kimmel outs their alter egos.
The dark superhero film is expected to have a monstrous opening. Despite a lengthy run time of two hours and 31 minutes, the Zack Snyder-directed film is projected to pull in around $140 million in its debut. The production, which cost $250 million, is estimated to bring in $200 million overseas, topping $300 million in global grosses.
“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” premieres March 25.
