The wold of Batman, on the other hand, is a bit more stylized. Gotham is as dark and dismal as it's ever been. Because this is Batman's first appearance in this story (The Dark Knight trilogy is not considered part of this "universe"), the designers were able to start from scratch and do something unique. Snyder and his team succeeding in creating a Batman that is differentiated from all the others that have come before. The book also features Batman's many gadgets and weapons, his mech suit, as well as the Batmobile and Batwing.
The book also takes a brief look at the other characters in the film - Lex Luthor, Doomsday, and of course Wonder Woman. The challenge across the board was to take inspiration from the comics, but make the designs unique and interesting for the big screen. A few key scene in the film are also detailed, including the fight between Batman & Superman, and also the Knightmare sequence.
The imagery in the book is outstanding. It's mostly sketches and conceptual artwork. But there are also some production photos and some stills from the completed movie. If you are interested in this film and enjoy Snyder's visual style, then you'll probably enjoy this book.
