My name is Justin. I was one of the graphic designers on I am Legend. I did not put that billboard in Times Square as a joke.

Didn't I Am Legend take place in 2012?

Also I really fail to see it how it predicted the film happening since it's been trying to get made since like 02.

So why did you put it there? Just like as a cool little Easter egg?

First of all here is the graphic file flat and not-placed, in case there is any doubt.

Our writer and executive producer, Akiva Goldsman, had worked on the script for the 2002 version that never happened and it was his idea to do a poster for it. I love comic books and wanted to do it. We both wanted the Batman vs Superman movie to happen, and we thought Warner Bros.did too, so we decided to put the billboard into the TS set.

I created it and placed it for VFX with a key farm illustration. DC was against us using it as they are very protective of both Batman and Superman properties. Since they are owned by WB we decided to go with it anyway. I was not sure it would make it into the final version of the film but was excited when it did.

This was definitely NOT placed as a joke. That "comic fact" is just plain wrong. In a way, I'd say we did predict it.

I did not create it. I think we got that image from DC and just put movie type text over it. I did place it in Times Square set. It was one of my sets on the movie conceptually and graphically (but not all the graphics are original - there were several hundred of them and I didn't have time to make them all from scratch).

Yea it did kind of look like a comic cover as a movie poster.

Were there any other ideas like a Justice League poster or Wonder Woman or Flash film or logo poster?

There is a Green Lantern poster. It was also made using artwork from DC. There's a poster for a Keanu Reeves movie "Shibumi,"which to date, we inaccurately predicted.

Warner Bros was hoping to connect Batman vs Superman together in 2009/2010 using the Superman Returns version of Superman and Bale's Batman at one point, this is the plan Robinov was gearing towards.

It's interesting that you bring this up. They did have me make one version of the billboard with Christian Bale & Brandon Routh's name on it.

How would that even have worked? Bale's Batman is in the 2000s-2010s era while Routh's Superman was still in the 80s. Way too much of an age gap.

In that case, I'm glad Robinov eventually got sh**canned. That would have been horrible. The idea of an actor as limited as Routh trying to go toe-to-toe with Bale just sounds like a trainwreck.

I hope they don't do this in the movie. It would be lame if batman's motivation to fight superman is just that his girlfriend died when the world engine had put a flat field in the middle of the city.

I'm no fan of Routh, but there was nothing in his performance that would make me believe he would've failed miserably going "up against" Bale's performance as Bruce/Batman. Bale wasn't some acting phenom in the Dark Knight trilogy.

I would've been more concerned with how awkward his Batman would be playing across the other heroes.

Yeah, I totally would have been more worried about the seasoned, experienced, Oscar-winning actor than the guy who landed the role of a lifetime because he spilled coffee on himself in front of Bryan Singer.

Apologies for only taking into account the performance, rather than an actor's entire career.

Ever since DeNiro's brilliant show in Rocky & Bullwinkle, I just haven't been the same.

Well, considering that all three of Bale's Batman films were critically acclaimed and financially successful (with the second and third ones being massive successes), I think it's safe bet that at least a few people liked him in the role. Meanwhile, SR was so divisive and its box office so underwhelming that WB eventually realized the best thing to do was cut its ties to the whole thing. And people can blame the script and direction all they want, but I'll always maintain that Routh's lifeless performance did nothing to help the matter.
