Production Designer Talks BATMAN/SUPERMAN And Declares Production Delay A Blessing
Commenting on the delay in production and reuniting with director Zack Snyder, Patrick Tatopoulos says it's taking a lot of energy, but he's excited to be the production designer on Batman Vs. Superman
Speaking with Flickering Myth recently, Patrick Tatopoulos discussed shepherding the Man of Steel sequel's production design, as well as the untitled Zack Snyder-directed film's delay in production.
“I’m working in Detroit on Batman vs. Superman and its super cold there,” he said. “At the end of 300: Rise of an Empire, I met with Zack [Snyder] and he said, ‘I'm going to do this movie and want you to design it.’ I was stunned. I thought, ‘Wow! Great.’ That’s where it started. This is a crazy huge movie. It’s taking a lot of energy but it’s something that someone like me needs to do in his lifetime. There’s a project that is close to me that I was going to direct and I said, ‘I need to do this,’” continues Tatopoulos. “Working with Zack again was important to me because he’s an amazing director with an incredible vision. Batman and Superman is something I’ve always wanted to do. I would have chosen one or both. I got the offer and jumped on it.” Speaking about the film's 10-month release date delay, Patrick Tatopoulos says, “The big chunk that we want to do for the movie is there but there is so much more to do. For me, it’s been a blessing that it has been pushed a little bit.” What do you think?
Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, and Laurence Fishburne, the untitled Batman/Superman film is directed by Zack Snyder from a story by David S. Goyer and screenplay by Chris Terrio. The sequel is set for release May 6, 2016!
