"Batman vs Superman" Scene to be Filmed near Metamora
Rumors have been circulating around the internet that filming the new superhero team up film Batman vs Superman, it’s temporary name at the moment, will be filming in Metamora, MI specifically at the Metamora State Park.
A Metamora State Park official states that those internet rumors are not true.
“This is simply not the case and not true, filming will not be taking place at the Metamora State Park,” the park official said. “Warner Bros. Pictures has not contacted us or applied for any park applications. They would have had to apply six months in advance so that we, as a park, make sure that none of the natural resources would be disturbed at the state park.”
However, after a closer (and very cold) investigation into the surrounding area by our resident movie guru and self-pro-claimed Batman superfan Justin Shanlin, it appears as though the filming will actually be taking place just a few miles down the road off Caley Rd. in Metmaora.
Construction is underway in Metamora and by the looks of things this will indeed be a possible location for this upcoming hero epic. The “No Trespassing” signs are a slight give away, but not as much as the security guard that was standing at his post on a blustery Saturday morning. He held clear signs that read “Sage” bring it to almost certainty that this film will indeed have a scene shot here. Warner Bros has listed the codename title for this film as “Sage and Milo”.
Unfortunately, residents of the area also declined to comment. This new film will star Ben Affleck as the new Caped Crusader, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and returns “Man of Steel” alumni Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Laurence Fishbourne. “Batman vs Superman” or whatever the director Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. decides to call the film will be pumping roughly $131 million dollars into Michigan, and shooting won’t be just taking place at the Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac, but a large chunk of the film will be shot in Detroit and the surrounding areas. General Motors has also been rumored with designing the new Bat-mobile that Affleck will be driving.
If filming does begin off Caley Rd. be sure to turn to the Michigan Times with up to date filming locations and casting news.
