Man of Steel Sequel to Film in Michigan in Early 2014

The Internet has had its fill of announcements regarding the upcoming sequel to Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which is said to be a Batman vs. Superman movie. We’ve received news over the tone of the film (Bats and Supes aren’t going to start out as best friends), the cast (Ben Affleck will play Batman), and now it’s been announced that principal filming will start in 2014, in Michigan.

The news came from the Detroit Free Press, which reported that the production will net around $35 million in tax incentives to shoot in and around the city, as well as other locations in the state. Certainly something that will help the currently financially-troubled state.

Director Zack Snyder has also recently addressed one of the main criticisms lobbied at the first film, that of the massive collateral damage that Superman’s fight with Zod and his army has brought on Metropolis:

“I wanted the movie to have a mythological feeling,” says Snyder. “In ancient mythology, mass deaths are used to symbolize disasters.”

“In other countries like Greece and Japan, myths were recounted through the generations, partly to answer unanswerable questions about death and violence.”

“In America, we don’t have that legacy of ancient mythology. Superman is probably the closest we get. It’s a way of recounting the myth.”
