According to the Detroit Free Press, preproduction on Batman vs Superman has begun in metropolitan Detroit, with Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac playing a key role in the development of the set and shooting locations.

DFP writes,

"The studio complex is serving as home to production offices for the Warner Bros./DC Entertainment project. When filming starts next year, all seven of the soundstages will be used. The still-untitled Superman-Batman movie is expected to occupy the complex through August.

The superhero epic’s economic impact is expected to extend across the region. It plans to shoot at the Pontiac studio as well as at locations throughout the state."

“This project will employ more Michigan residents than any other film project has ever employed in the state of Michigan, ” shared Anthony Wenson, COO of Michigan Motion Picture Studios

We have already seen images pop up on showing preproduction and filming on the kent farm house and other set locations used in Man of Steel. But this is the first confirmation we've had of Michigan preparing itself to become Gotham/Metropolis for the heavily anticipated sequel to Man of Steel. However considering Detroit and Pontiac's small downtown core it is still possible that filming of the scenes of Metropolis will resume in Vancouver or Toronto (as rumored) in January.

Amy Adams has confirmed that her scenes will begin filming in February 2014, and according to DFP filming inside the studio will continue till August 2014.

Considering the film has already filmed the football match scene (between Gotham City University and Metropolis State University) and the secret scenes on the Kent Farm in October, the film will be in production for a total of 11 months! Wow!

Whose excited for 2015?

Cool find but unless you're willing to sneak into the studio and get some pictures, I'm disappointed.

Nice find.

How do get that yellow in the background and how do you do bold? I'm always looking ways of improving my articles.

The old man wouldn't mind doing Wayne Manor's laundry. You'd have to pry his nose from the green undies. I get the feeling the Robins would sooner risk a crow-bar beatdown than spend the night in with 'im.

So when's our first look at Batman?
DEVLIN712 - 12/12/2013, 12:12 PM
Don't crow bar beatings and spending the night with Gusto go hand in hand?

Hahaha, depends on how much scotch he's had, I suppose.

I hope they lock up the Batmobile at night!

Time to grab Gusto and head to Pontiac for a few months.

How dare you all speak bad of Detroit, I'm in the right mind to beat you all then eat some coney's from Lafayette.

I gotta make sure my sis takes some set snaps. She lives right in the middle of Detroit.
JoeMomma29 - 12/12/2013, 12:34 PM

I also heard your sister works in the middle of Detroit as well. Well that is what Gusto tells me.

I'm not trying to start a war, but I think this going to

beat Avengers in Box office and own 2015.
GoldenOne33 - 12/12/2013, 12:46 PM
Just because of the name.
JoeMomma29 - 12/12/2013, 12:51 PM
@ GoldenOne33

I want to agree due to the fact that Batman and Superman are very well known and they have never been on the big screen together. Also throwing in WW even if it is a Cameo draws in older female base, because all females know who WW is!

I wish! But here are some photos of the studio to keep you busy...
