Superhero follow-up Batman Vs Superman to film on location in Detroit
Upcoming Man of Steel follow-up Batman Vs Superman will film on location in Detroit, Michigan. Shooting will take place in the first quarter of 2014 and the movie will get a filming incentive payment of around USD35 million on planned local expenditure of about USD131 million.
“Detroit is a great example of a quintessential American city and I know it will make the perfect backdrop for our movie,” commented director Zack Snyder: “Detroit and the entire state of Michigan have been fantastic collaborators and we are looking forward to working together on this film.”
Securing Batman Vs Superman – still a tentative title – is a big boost for Detroit. The Michigan city has major economic problems and filed for bankruptcy earlier this summer. However, it continues to appeal to high-end feature films and TV productions, partly due to the state’s competitive filming incentive grants of up to 32%.

Previously, Man of Steel used Chicago as Metropolis, while Christopher Nolan also used the city as Gotham for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
