Batwing Miniature Used For BATMAN FOREVER

The team of artists at the Academy Award-winning special effects company McCune Design constructed miniatures of the Bat Cave, Batwing, Caped Crusader and Arkham Asylum for Joel Schumacher's 1995 film Batman Forever. Come see some of their work.


In Joel Schumacher's Batman Forever, miniatures of the Batwing and Batman (Val Kilmer) were required for the scenes leading up to confrontation at Claw Island. That is where Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones) and the Riddler (Jim Carrey) have taken Dr. Chase Meridian (Nicole Kidman). In the video below, you can watch as The Batwing zooms through the Bat Cave and emerges in the Gotham City sky. Batman's plane is later shot down by The Riddler and then becomes a mini-submarine.

The McCune Design team created a 1/6th scale cave interior, and a highly detailed Bat Plane that hung and launched from the cave ceiling. In addition, extensive labyrinths of tunnels were built for high-speed P.O.V. views from the plane as it exited the Bat Cave. Other scenes required the creation The Arkham Asylum exterior and a highly detailed Gotham Alley. When the alley dead ends, The Bat Mobile raced up a vertical wall. - McCune Design
