Bilal, was good enough to take pictures of Hardy, Alon (here) and set pieces for the new Batman film. But the most intriguing photos were the ones he took of the name tags on the trailers. The pictures are below and come with commentary from the photographer.

Who is Roland Daggett?(link)
Roland Daggett is a fictional character and an adversary of Batman. He made his debut in Batman: The Animated Series as a corrupt and powerful businessman, voiced by Golden Globe-winner Edward Asner. The president of Daggett Industries, a pharmaceutical company, he is depicted as being a large, physically imposing man with smoothed back reddish-brown hair and blue eyes.

Daggett Industries develops "Renuyu", a face cream which enables the user to modify their face to their desire, and which Daggett is secretly going to sell through direct marketing since it will be rejected by stores for its addictive qualities. The only man addicted to the compound is Matt Hagen, an actor who was disfigured in a car accident and who committs crimes (in disguise) for Daggett in return for supplies of the formula after Daggett approached him at the burn clinic stating that Renuyu is much easier compared to years of plastic surgery.
