SuperbatSpider1003 - 8/30/2013, 2:56 PM
How would it be for both hmmm
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 2:56 PM
@Braniac3000 I think it's gonna both Metropolis and Gotham. So I guess the Good parts will play Metropolis and the rest will be Gotham
Brainiac13 - 8/30/2013, 3:00 PM

Also the use of CGI will do wonders....look what they did to Chicago for TDK Trilogy.
JULEZ13 - 8/30/2013, 3:02 PM
Nice find @Emjeed!!

Detroit will make a great Gotham City! I wonder how the final piece will look like!

I hope it will have the Gothic architecture on the rich side of town at least.
JULEZ13 - 8/30/2013, 3:04 PM
They may take parts of Detroit for both Gotham City and Metropolis. Kind of how they took parts from different cities and created Metropolis. That way it won't look like an existing city, which I always thought was a great idea.
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 3:04 PM
@Braniac3000 I know right! I lived there for a while and it was unrecognizable to me in TDK. TDKR was Pittsburgh though.. I think

@JULEZ.. Well hello there stranger. Where have you been?
JULEZ13 - 8/30/2013, 3:08 PM
@Emjeed - LOL. Where have I been?? Why, I don't think you should know that... lol

Parts of TDKR was Pittsburgh, some Newark, NJ and somewhere in England, I believe.

JULEZ13 - 8/30/2013, 3:12 PM
This better make main!! Matter of fact, this should be on that slide show on MAIN!!
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 3:12 PM
@JULEZ.. You are having an AFFAIR! How diabolical!
JULEZ13 - 8/30/2013, 3:15 PM
@Emjeed - ....... It wasn't me.
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 3:23 PM
@Julez uhuh.. You belief your guy is safe? No.. I will reclaim the thunder he stole from me, i will cut his manhood... i will find him... I WILL FIND HIM!!!
JULEZ13 - 8/30/2013, 3:25 PM
@Emjeed - O_O ...........................................................................................
....... It wasn't me.
Knightrider - 8/30/2013, 3:42 PM
Yep perfect Gotham.

I wonder what the time difference is between the two movies? E.G. 6months, 2 years etc as that'll make a big difference to how much Metropolis has recovered.

I would like to see it looking great and Luthor using stolen tech to help rebuild the city in record time.
FirstAvenger - 8/30/2013, 3:46 PM
Well this is gonna suck, Nobody likes Detroit! ;)
duncboy - 8/30/2013, 3:52 PM
I wrote an article on this 2-3 days ago and it got deleted. Bullshit moderators.
BANE5000 - 8/30/2013, 4:01 PM
Its gonna be Gotham City, no doubt :]
DioFoRio - 8/30/2013, 4:02 PM
how many more times we gonna get this "Breaking news"? ; P
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 4:10 PM
@duncboy Empire just confirmed it 18 hours ago so it might be possible it was still a rumor at the time and you didn't make that apparent. Like how articles saying Brian Cranston was cast as Lex were deleted cos they were just rumors beig reported as fact
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 4:15 PM
@BlackJack10 Lol
BadJoke - 8/30/2013, 4:38 PM
So, Toronto is still a location for the movie?
Spyder - 8/30/2013, 4:39 PM
That should help bring some money into the city.
thebearjew - 8/30/2013, 4:40 PM
This was officially confirmed like 2 days ago

Old news man

Screw Boston and everything in it (including the Pats)

I got nothing against Detroit, but don't be insulting the GREATEST CITY IN THE WORLD - NYC baby.
DEATHbyEXILE - 8/30/2013, 4:47 PM
Greengo - 8/30/2013, 4:47 PM
This was already posted.
thebearjew - 8/30/2013, 4:48 PM
Detroit does make for a good gotham city
marantaz - 8/30/2013, 4:51 PM
Well it's good somebody is doing something for Detroit. Not that I'll ever see this flick, but more should find a way to help the economy in rock city. Course, the studio probably got huge tax breaks to film there, but every little bit helps in Detroit.
Nemeres - 8/30/2013, 4:53 PM
Lol, Cavill's getting robbed.
Swiftsword777 - 8/30/2013, 4:53 PM
Cool, where is the trailer already? ;)
Thegeekygurl - 8/30/2013, 4:54 PM
After Superdumbass "saved" Metropolis it now looks like Detroit!
Kenya will double for 'Smallville' after Superdumbass "saved" it as well!
MarkV - 8/30/2013, 5:03 PM
you will see it marantaz
ninjamishi - 8/30/2013, 5:13 PM
I like how he says the quintessential American city. Yes the quintessential American city is in ruins and bankrupt
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 5:16 PM
@Thegeekygurl Why come on an article about something you hate, just to hate on it some more? That's how you get attention from men? Real life not working out for you, i see..
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 5:16 PM
@Yaboi.. JULEZ is mine ! you can keep the fat one
Emjeed - 8/30/2013, 5:18 PM
@BlackJack10 @JULEZ is a girl lol.. A very attractive one at that. As for the other one, Could be a dude.. she sounds like one
FirstAvenger - 8/30/2013, 5:26 PM

JULEZ13 - 8/30/2013, 5:26 PM
