The latest production update for Batman vs. Superman confirms that the upcoming sequel has begun pre-production in Detroit, Michigan. The city is said to be subbing for both Metropolis and Gotham. According to Detroit Free Press, the production will be the biggest movie shoot in the state’s history. Filming will take place at the Michigan Motion Pictures Studios, and will occupy the complex until production ends in August. Additionally, the Man of Steel follow-up “will employ more Michigan residents than any other film project has ever employed in the state of Michigan,” says COO Anthony Wenson. As we move closer to the February start date, we should expect more production and casting updates to be online soon.
Batman vs. Superman (not the final title) is scheduled to hit theaters July 17th, 2015. The follow-up to Man of Steel, the next installment in the DC Cinematic Universe stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne, with Jason Momoa in talks to join. Zack Snyder directs from a script by David S. Goyer.
