Production designer calls ‘Batman vs. Superman’ delay a blessing

Flickering Myth had a chance to talk to Patrick Tatopoulos, the production designer for Batman vs. Superman. Tatopoulos has previously done production design for movies like 300: Rise of an Empire, I, Robot, and Independence Day. He’s excited to work with Zack Snyder again, who was a producer on 300: Rise of an Empire. Here’s what Tatopoulos had to say about Batman vs. Superman:

I’m working in Detroit on Batman vs. Superman and its super cold there. At the end of 300: Rise of an Empire I met with Zack [Snyder] and he said, ‘I 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.

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.

When asked about the delay which pushed Batman vs. Superman’s release date to May 2016, Tatopoulos had the following to say:

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.
