Filming on Batman vs Superman is now underway!

Mar. 10, 2014by: Niki Stephens

The Bat Signal has been turned on. Clark is headed to the telephone booth. Filming on BATMAN VS SUPERMAN has begun.

Thanks to the kind folks of Metamora, Michigan we now know that production is underway on the superhero flick. Residents of the town told NBC25 that they originally started receiving letters in February concerning the work the crew would be doing around the area. If you leave nearby, you might want to check out what Snyder and crew having going on near Caley Road. However, there were no reports of Bat, Supes, or Wonder Woman sightings at that time.

The letter from Crown City Productions received by one of the residents stated that a temporary project would be ongoing at an old Girl Scout camp nearby. When the news channel went to check out the list of projects that Crown City had underway, the only one that had a temporary status was BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. They go on to confirm that a big showdown would be shot there. A house was built back on the grounds with the resident describing that it was lit up like daylight at one point. Crown City Production also confirmed that filming was not completed on the site.

Back in December, a casting call for extras in the area was posted on the official Facebook page for Elite Artist Management NY.

Dump Affleck, reboot Superman, drop Snyder and we might have a movie!

I find it funny how they do almost everything wrong, finding the best way possible to detract from my interest in DC's universe. It's depressing, really.

What we need now is Ben Affleck's pics as either Bruce Wayne or Batman. Even just a glimpse.

I for one can't wait to see any pictures of Affleck in Bruce Wayne and/or Batman mode. He's definitely the biggest factor in this new film/sequel.

I am remaining steadfastly and probably somewhat foolishly optimistic.

I hate to be a downer, but I can't help but feel this movie is going to be such a disappointment. The movie that was supposed to kick off DC's cinematic universe couldn't even get it's own main character right, it didn't make nearly as much money as the executives hoped, and so they crammed in Batman, his love interest, Alfred, Robin, Lex Luthor, and Wonder Woman into its "sequel," whether that was the most natural progression for the characters or not. Would it have been so bad to get a

Would it have been so bad to get a worthy, character-respectful reboot for the Man of Steel, then a proper, Superman-centric sequel, and then maybe the Batman-Superman team-up/face-off film that leads into the Justice League? I just can't get excited for DC's efforts right now, but I'm sincerely hoping that changes.

Most likely visual fx. That's the most time consuming, costly part of the filmmaking process these days (generally speaking). And no doubt this film is going to require an army of vfx artists. If I'm not mistaken they started filming Man of Steel in 2011 even though it came out last year. 2 years in post production.

Could be they want to stay away from "Avengers: Age of Ultron" in 2015, no?

Only reason they're filming in Detroit is because it's a run down dump of a city, and something has to fill the void of a messed up looking metropolis. That's cool for the people that live by that area to be able to see a scene being filmed in they're back yard, but sadly for them they're probably not going to see any action being filmed. I'm sure they r just shooting scenery or inside that house they say they're building. Surly the "showdown" between bats & supes, will all be green screen on
