The Ship that Vanderworth Built has posted an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of "The Gertrude" featuring production sketches and 360 panoramic set views.
director Bryan Singer and production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas were intent to make their movie the ideal third chapter in the series. "Hopefully you can see it and go 'okay, this fits in,'" says Dyas. "And it will. We kept the designs similar, with only a few departures." Apart from the series' more well-known designs - such as The Daily Planet, the Fortress of Solitude, and the Kent family farm - Superman Returns' grand stylistic departure is Lex Luthor's extraordinarily opulent motor vessel: The Gertrude.

Anyway, I wish I had an Xbox 360, so I could play the "cool" version. :D
