Worship At The Church Of Batman The Redeemer For Terry Gilliam And Christoph Waltz

Much of Terry Gilliam‘s film The Zero Theorem takes place inside a “dim, high-ceilinged.. run-down chapel.” This is where Qohen Leth, played by Christoph Waltz, does most of his ‘existential hacking’ in the film.

Visiting the set, the Romanian website MediaFax commented on several posters pasted on the walls.

They say that one poster read “Why pay less – let the world know how rich you are,” while another referred to “The Church of Batman the Redeemer.”

Clearly, if Warner Bros. lawyers are reading, it’s a reference to Batman in Turkey. Unless this falls under fair use and we can all stop pretending.

A version of that poster has turned up on the website of the film’s cinematographer, Nicola Pecorini. Here it is.

The same page on Pecorini’s website explains the set image I posted earlier. “Casting the clones,” it says. There’s a little bit more info on the film’s camera crew too, so do check it out if you are so inclined.

Why is Gilliam referring to a church of Batman? Well, I’m sure he’s going to be asked. I’ll ask him myself if nobody else does first. Would seem to be something to do with Heath Ledger, though, right? I think you can probably follow the train of thought…
