Earlier today, Bananadoc (via Batman-News.com) went to Pontiac, Michigan to check out the construction of sets for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There, he found a large statue of Superman being put together, with a large green screen behind it. It is located across the street from the Michigan Motion Picture Studios next to the old GM building which is being converted into LexCorp. Bananadoc also snapped a shot of the LexCorp building (click here), but a blue tarp covered all the signage. Scenes are expected to be filmed there in three days.

BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE - Zack Snyder will direct. It's written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. The film stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The cast also includes: Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Will arrive in theaters May 6, 2016.

Schweeeeeet!

When are we getting this reveal from the warner bro tours twitter account?
Frogman - 6/9/2014, 5:01 PM
So is he meant to have rebuilt some of the city since MoS and this is to thank him or is this more of a Death of Superman thing?
MisterMoustache - 6/9/2014, 5:02 PM
I hope they'll put a globe or something in his hand. Otherwise, that's a pretty inappropriate gesture, if you know what I mean.
AlexanderLykins - 6/9/2014, 5:02 PM
Awesome. I hope the MCU does stuff like this.
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/9/2014, 5:02 PM
Way to include an "erected statue" joke after today's Spider-Man incident, Nail. Props to you!

"Superman Statue Beign Erected"
OpticBlastWins - 6/9/2014, 5:03 PM
I like it but I hope its for the end of the movie. He isnt quite the hero yet.
Phronesis - 6/9/2014, 5:03 PM
Sigh...
McNyagano - 6/9/2014, 5:03 PM
Are they actually gonna do the Doomsday storyline where they kill off Superman? I remember after Superman sacrifices himself after his fateful fight with Doosmday and a statue is erected in his honour in Metropolis. I just hope it isn't because he "saved" Metropolis in MOS. Pretty cool nonetheless, my interest for this film is slowly growing as more news comes out:)

Great find Nail:)

OH F*CK.
ThunderStorm - 6/9/2014, 5:03 PM
haha erected.
SuperCat - 6/9/2014, 5:04 PM
So is that what the new suit will look like? Love it!
MrPrime - 6/9/2014, 5:04 PM
Pretty cool to see. I hope Snyder doesn't rely too much on green screens and vfx for this movie. Hopefully Affleck will be a nice counterweight to him.
DaVinci31 - 6/9/2014, 5:04 PM
What's with the Mystique/Sentinel type of skin?
yonny616 - 6/9/2014, 5:06 PM
Remember guys! There will be most likely a few months to a year between the events of Man of Steel and BvS.
DarthCMPunk - 6/9/2014, 5:08 PM
Took Batman 3 movies to have Gotham build a statue for him. This is bull shit lol
MrPrime - 6/9/2014, 5:10 PM
Random Passer By: Nope. I still can't figure out it's Clark Kent or not.
G - 6/9/2014, 5:10 PM
What's he doing with that finger?
HurricaneXavier - 6/9/2014, 5:10 PM
Why are they building a Superman statue in a Batman movie?
DaVinci31 - 6/9/2014, 5:10 PM
Yo whats he doin' with his hand tho
npamusic - 6/9/2014, 5:10 PM
Nice. I doubt he's dying. I guess they're erectin the statue because, as @McNy pointed out, it may well be for him saving Metropolis.
McGee - 6/9/2014, 5:11 PM
@McNyagano

It could also be because he saved the entire planet Earth.
McNyagano - 6/9/2014, 5:11 PM
LOL @MrPrime xD
Highflyer - 6/9/2014, 5:11 PM
Never knew they acknowledged Superman as a hero by the end on MOS.
Alexandre - 6/9/2014, 5:11 PM
It's the citizens way if giving thanks to Supes, that doesn't mean it's the new Superman suit
blackandyellow - 6/9/2014, 5:12 PM
I bet Lexcorp builds it.
shabat - 6/9/2014, 5:12 PM
I can't imagine they are building a statue for him after the events of MOS. I love MOS, but it seems the public would be polarized on their opinions of him. Seems like this should be something saved for the end of BvS.
Shaq - 6/9/2014, 5:12 PM
"You destroyed our city, probably killed people by nopt caring about where you threw that other dude and only seemed to care about people around you when that family of 4 was around. But, here have a statue". LMAO
McGee - 6/9/2014, 5:12 PM
AquaMexicanMan - 6/9/2014, 5:12 PM
@typicalfanboy youre nailing it dude!All seriousness thats exactly what some people would say
batmanvsuperman - 6/9/2014, 5:12 PM
Nice but when the hell are we getting the reveal we are suppose to get today don't play games wb
Pasto - 6/9/2014, 5:13 PM
McGee
No no, he didn't save the planet. According to others he actually destroyed it.
thewonderer - 6/9/2014, 5:13 PM
I think Lex, in this movie, will rally the people against Superman for the destruction he caused in MoS. He will use this statue to show how stupid people are for praising the "destroyer of metropolis"
DaVinci31 - 6/9/2014, 5:13 PM
@Highflyer

Well, we still don't know what the rest of it looks like . . .

It could resemble something like this just beneath him:



HurricaneXavier - 6/9/2014, 5:13 PM
Maybe this is taking place years down the line, where he is actually seen as a champion.
LordHuck - 6/9/2014, 5:13 PM
shabat

WHY??? He saved 6 billion people, Zod was going to kill everyone. People die in war. Kal-El saved as many as he could.
