What if parts of Detroit are used as post-MOS Metropolis as well?

How bad is it? I guess every movie shoot has lots of security so it's not likely to be an issue.

Because you don't need a title until marketing truly begins?

Apparently it's violent crime rates are the second worst in the country. The worst is Flint, a city also in Michigan. Also apparently Detroit is the ninth worst city in the world for crime.

I am willing to bet they have a title already but are gonna wait until it will give them the biggest media effect.

When Transformers 3 shot their climactic battle there...not all the gunshots and explosions where from the movie makers.

They also will be filming in Toronto, which is fitting, as Joe Shuster was born there.

I'm guessing Metropolis will be the newer and nicer parts of Toronto and Detroit, while Gotham will be the older and crappier parts of the cities.

They can easy use movie magic to make the different parts of Detroit look and feel like both Gotham and Metropolis.

Would make sense especially considering this film is going to deal with the destruction of MOS.

I could see the Gotham portion acting as the Krypton equivalent in MOS. Just a 15-20 minute prologue of sorts that establishes Batman and his world and how he'll tie into the story... and then it's back to Metropolis where we left off after the first movie.

What kind of Gotham are we getting? A bankrupt post economic crisis ghost city that makes prison look like a safer place? Was really hoping we'd get a more stylized grand gotham after Nolans chicagotham.

It raises the question of why Gotham would be this bad off if Batman is in the middle of his crime fighting days. Sounds like Batman has been slacking.

I don't know...a bankrupt post economic ghost city that makes prison look like a safer place seems like it needs a Batman more than a post modern gothic stylized grand gotham....or it's just me.

I agree completely. I also think they might somewhere else as well for location shots. Preferably London.

In Central Pennsylvania, it takes an hour for a response to a 911 call. My neighbor had a bleeding, knife wielding maniac trying to break into her house, and the State Police arrived an hour later.
