A new piece of concept art for the Flying Fox in Justice League has been unveiled, along with some information on the massive vehicle. After years of planning, this November will finally see DC and Warner Bros. bring together their various heroes for an epic team-up. The story will focus on Batman and Wonder Woman collecting a team around them to help combat a threat to big for any one person.
Aside from the Amazonian and the Dark Knight, the new movie will also feature Cyborg, Aquaman, the Flash, and even Superman. Along with the titans, a number of supporting characters from future franchise will also appear, including Iris West and Mera. With such a huge ensemble in what's sure to be a grandiose film, it makes sense that the battles, enemies, and even sets and vehicles will be equally as awe-inspiring as the heroes. And just like in Batman v Superman, production designer Patrick Tatopoulos helped to bring the big ideas to life.
EW spoke with Tatopoulos about one of his biggest pieces for Justice League, a gigantic transport Batman builds dubbed the Flying Fox. Named after a type of bat, naturally, the massive vehicle not only ferries the the heroes around, but is packed full of gear. Along with a new piece of concept art for the carrier, Tatopoulos shared some insight into how he went about creating the Fox:
"You can put three Batmobiles in the lower part of it. 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."
We've seen a number of glimpse of the Flying Fox already, from the movie's trailers to a Justice League toy reveal. Still, this concept art provides the most detailed look at the vehicle we've seen so far. And it won't just be Batmobiles and Leaguers that the Fox carries. The transport is designed to operate like a moving headquarters for the team:
"The bottom part of the jet is a huge cargo bay, which the Batmobile sits in. 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."
As we get closer to the release of Justice League, we'll probably get a lot more inside looks at the various aspects of the film. Just this week Tatopoulos shared an up-close look at one of the Parademon designs for the movie. Along with big bad Steppenwolf, the Parademons will serve as the cannon fodder the League will plow through during their adventure. In all likelihood, the team will be peeling a few of them off the windshield of the Flying Fox in Justice League.
