Capital's the first in the world to see the rehearsals and set for the multi-million pound show Batman Live.
The set for the multi-million pound show has been designed by Es Devlin, who's worked on productions and tours for Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Take That. We spoke to the stage designer at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham:
"It's been a real team effort, working very closely with Warner Brother and DC Comics to really create the world of Batman in real-life three dimensions for the first time. It's a real honour.
"Being in an arena for at me at the moment is feeling really cosy, warm and safe compared to these stadium shows. We've been working on Take That's Progress Tour which is phenomenally exciting but also very exposed to the weather."
There are rumours that parts of the new Batman movie are being filmed at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham, though the film studio's haven't confirmed anything.
Capital also caught up with the Creative Director Antony Van Laast, who worked on Mamma Mia and Co-Director James Powell, who worked on Les Mis and Dirty Dancing, listen below. They talk about the set, the money, DC Comics and possible filming for the new movie in Nottingham.
Batman Live is at the Capital FM Arena in September.
