Batman Vs. Superman Gets I Am Legend's Patrick Tatopoulos As Production Designer



Batman Vs. Superman apparently may have a new production designer, and fittingly enough it looks to be Patrick Tatopoulos who also worked on the Will Smith movie, I am Legend, that included the World's Finest Easter Egg billboard.

A film and production tracking website tweeted information that Batman Vs. Superman has opened a production office in Pontiac, Michigan with mention that Patrick Tatopoulos is onboard as the production designer.

"BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN has opened a production office at Raleigh Michigan Studios in Pontiac. Patrick Tatopoulos on as Production Designer," Production Weekly tweeted.

Patrick Tatopoulos is also known for being a judge on the popular SyFy special effects make-up reality show Face Off, and his production designer resume also includes: 300: Rise of an Empire, Total Recall, Live Free or Die Hard, Underworld: Evolution, I, Robot and Independence Day.

Last August saw Warner Bros. officially announce that Batman Vs. Superman (unconfirmed title) will in part film in Detroit and Michigan with Michigan speculated as the location for the Gotham City scenes.

This is at least the second change in production from the Man of Steel that Zack Snyder has made as last month it was learned Larry Fong is the Batman Vs. Superman cinematographer, with Fong having worked on Snyder's 300Watchmen and Sucker Punch.
