New Batman And Superman Movie To Be Filmed In Michigan


The always controversial Michigan film incentive program is bringing a major movie to Michigan.

The upcoming Batman and Superman movie will be filmed in Michigan.

The “Man of Steel” sequel has been given $35 million in incentives from Michigan.  It is estimated the film will spend $131 million in Michigan. has more:

The Warner Bros. film featuring the two biggest superheroes of DC Comics expects to begin shooting in metro Detroit and elsewhere in Michigan sometime in the first three months of 2014.

That would represent a higher percentage of spending for the incentives awarded than Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful,” which was filmed in Pontiac’s Michigan Motion Picture Studios in 2011. The origin story of Oz’s wizard had a projected spending of roughly $105 million and was awarded nearly $40 million in incentives.

The movie, which will star Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman, expects to hire 406 Michigan workers. The MFO also said it would use about 500 Michigan vendors and spend $5.1 million on local hotels.

“Man of Steel” has received some mixed reviews.  The selection of Ben Affleck to play Batman has received even more mixed reviews.  Put the two together and the “Man of Steel” big-budget blockbuster seems to have some potential to disappoint.

Either way, I’m looking forward to it and hoping Superman can use his heat vision to keep our roads clear of snow and maybe patch up a few potholes when he’s in town this winter.
