If you’ve been dying to know more about the wonderful toys the Dark Knight will put to use in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,” your wish has been granted! The latest episode of “DC All Access” pays a visit to Douglas Harlocker, the prop master for “BvS,” who shows off three of Batman’s most-used gadgets: his grappling gun, tech cowl and batarang.

Harlocker reveals that director Zack Snyder wanted to make the batarangs “more of a presence” in the film, “like a calling card.” Harlocker’s team created a number of different designs, and Snyder ended up choosing the one he did because it had the maximum amount of bladed edges, thus making it a truly “lethal” batarang. Harlocker also shows off Batman’s new grappling gun, which can also be used as a hammer in combat, as well as the tech cowl, which includes a voice transmitter and modifier.

Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams and others, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” hits screens on March 25.
