DETROIT | GOTHAM

The "DETROIT | GOTHAM" photo set stems from everyone calling Detroit "The Real Gotham City."

Despite the fact that New York is always known for being Gotham, and the fact that a lot of the Christopher Nolan Batman Series was filmed in Chicago, Detroit still has the reputation for criminal activity. I used to fight this notion, but as time has gone on, I decided to embrace it, creating a backdrop for my scene, my version of Gotham. 

 

OSWALD COBBLEPOT | PENGUIN

For this particular set, we went with FOX's version of The Penguin in the form of Oswald Cobblepot. During his rise to power, he had to battle both Salvatore Maroni, Fish Mooney, and Carmine Falcone to gain power. One of Oswald's best phrases embodied the feel of the set: "When you know what a man loves, you know what can kill him."
