Compare the Market – Batman v Superman
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Dan Lambert | Share link:


Earlier this year I was contacted by the good people at Passion Pictures with a very simple question…”Do you want to paint Batman?”.
Turns out they needed help creating some quick concepts for a Batman v Superman TV spot pitch, to bring together the new Compare the Market ‘Meerkat Movies’ promotion, and the (then) upcoming superhero film. Needless to say, I said yes.
We did the work and luckily, WB loved the concept and we were given the go ahead to take into production!

I was then tasked with possibly the best job ever, redesigning the movie costumes to fit meerkats. We went through several versions with various degrees of artificial muscles and cowl designs before landing on the final versions (pictured!) that were then modelled and used in the ads. The final task was to do high res costume paint-overs of posed CG meerkat models for marketing purposes.

An absolutely ridiculous job, heaps of fun, and more capes than is ever necessary. Hopefully I’ll get a call when they make the sequel! Although I’m still waiting for my limited edition toy…

"Dan Lambert was pivotal in our poster campaign for TfL (Transport for London) warning Londoners about the potential travel problems during the Olympics. He is a truly inspirational designer and artist. His work was exceptionally timely, considered and of a consistently high quality. I can't wait to work with him again. I would recommend Dan every time, he is a unique artist."
