The Art of The Batman includes concept art for set and costume designs (such as Zoe Kravitz’ leather Catsuit) as well as shot-by-shot comparisons between storyboards and footage from The Batman. Within a day of its launch, the book has already topped bestsellers lists on Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com and is currently on backorder for several other retailers, including Target.com.
In addition to taking home never-before-seen paintings and photographs of vehicles (including the iconic Batmobile and Batcycle), gadgets (like the new and improved Batarang and grappling hooks), and riddles from the film, fans can also enjoy detailed interviews with the cast and crew. The cast includes Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, John Turturro, Andy Serkis, and Peter Sarsgaard.
Before collaborating on The Art of the Batman, author James Field and director Matt Reeves worked together on The Batman’s set, where Fields is credited as a production liaison. Field has also acted as a production liaison for other DC projects, including upcoming titles Batgirl and The Flash.
