A PLANE FIT FOR BATMAN AND 4(5?) OTHER SUPER HEROES.
The first look of the Flying Fox, the Justice League’s brutalist plane that can fit all of the super personalities. Production designer Patrick Tatopoulos talks about the flying machine and how Batman can’t be alone anymore.
“You can put three Batmobiles in the lower part of it,” says production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (Batman v Superman). “I didn’t want to do a sleek airplane; it needed to feel like an extremely avant-garde classic. With the maneuverability of a jet—but it can actually carry things…“The bottom part of the jet is a huge cargo bay, which the Batmobile sits in,” the designer says. “The second floor is like a cultural center, with computer terminals. The third story is the cockpit. Whatever floor you are on, you can see [the other] two stories.” The Fox has everything—except a place to brood in private, Batman.”
In an interview with EW, Ben Affleck talks about Batman forming a team of super heroes to defeat one super villain.
“The Batman is typically kind of a loner,” Ben Affleck says. “I guess you’d call him kind of inward, you know?”
The Justice League film puts the usually introverted Batman the leader in a superhero team. Joining him are Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher)…and maybe Superman.
They’re defending Earth from a cosmic threat. “He brings them to the Batcave and lets them in on the central conflict of the story, who the enemy is,” Affleck says. “There’s a little bit of a Magnificent Seven aspect to it.”
Justice League comes out on November 17.
