[That] was I wished to current it in a method that was actually fleshed out, I wished it to really feel like an American metropolis you’d by no means been to. I imply different iterations… the Burton one had very, very, theatrical, stunning units – and Nolan had the model that he created in Batman Begins and that was… components of Chicago and components of Pittsburgh. And what we’re making an attempt to do is create a model of it that you have not seen earlier than.”
