People outside the city of Detroit see it as a city on the decline that could vanish at any moment. The people of Detroit see this city as something more and so does Hollywood! Not only is Transformers 4 shooting downtown, but many other directors have brought their films to the downtown area.
You can add one more ‘blockbuster’ to that list. The ‘Man of Steel’ sequel Superman and Batman will be filmed in Detroit starting in 2014. Yes, the same movie actor Ben Affleck will be starring in as the new Dark Knight. The Warner Bros. company will begin shooting in the first 3 months of 2014 after receiving $35 million in state incentives.
Still not convinced Detroit is the place to be? The ‘Man of Steel’ sequel should bring about 400 extra jobs to Detroit, not to mention thousands of extras in the movie. Who cares if Ben Affleck sucks as Batman, Detroit is about to part of a huge movie!
