Channel 13 has more of the story here “Superman-Batman movie will film in Michigan; $35M in incentives OK’d by state”
“The movie, informally known as the untitled “Man of Steel” sequel, has been approved for $35 million in incentives on an anticipated $131 million of in-state spending. 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 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.”
