Superman-Batman movie coming to Michigan

Aug 29, 2013

The "Caped Crusader" and the "Man of Steel" are getting a handout from Michigan.

Julie Hinds of the Detroit Free Press reports Warner Brothers will get millions in tax incentives to shoot the movie in the state.

The upcoming Superman-Batman movie has been approved for the state’s film incentives, the Michigan Film Office announced today.

The Warner Bros. film featuring the two biggest superheroes of DC Comics expects to begin shooting in metro Detroit and elsewhere in Michigan sometime in the first three months of 2014.

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.

Filming is expected to start in 2014. Keep your eyes peeled for the new Superman with "super-pecs," Henry Cavill. The film will also star Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, and Diane Lane. And possibly Bryan Cranston?
