As has been previously reported by the Inquisitr, Batman v Superman is getting ready to wrap up production. Director Zack Snyder called into a local radio show for the second time to confirm the news and talk about his time in Detroit and other things, including the casting of Jason Momoa in the upcoming Aquaman.
On Tuesday morning, Snyder called the Stoney and Bill morning show on 97.1, The Ticket, to discuss where things stand with the mega production and what is the future of the franchise. Following the big announcement from Warner Bros. that they will release nine new superhero movies starting with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Snyder first and foremost wanted to thank Detroit and its people for hosting their cast and crew for the past six-months.
“We’re getting ready to wrap it up and take off and I just wanted to say thanks to you guys for being strong supporters of the movie and coming down and saying hey, and just, I’ve had a great time in Michigan, I just wanted to say thanks to you guys and just to Detroit itself.”
Batman v Superman was expected to finish production in and around the Detroit Metro area at the end of October and it looks like things are right on schedule. Director Zack Snyder says that they will be heading out to Chicago next and then a couple of other locations, which could included the mysterious set being built in New Mexico.
Snyder expressed similar views to those his Batman v Superman stars, Ben Affleck (Batman) and Henry Cavill (Superman), have shared in interviews in regards to their host city.
“I’ve had a really great time, everyone’s been amazing, the local actors and stuff that we put in the movie have been amazing. I’ve never been around such great day players.”
The Man of Steel director added that to show his spirit, he is going to Chicago with “all his Detroit shirts and flags now, so I’m representing pretty heavily.”
As far as the chances of him returning to Detroit once again to film Justice League, the next episode in the saga, Snyder said there is definitely a possibility.
“I feel like there’s a really good chance we’re going to be back,” the Batman v Superman director said. Snyder explained that the current production has a couple of “established locations here in Detroit” that would likely make it necessary to return and would make sense to put to good use once more.
Even though the Motor City seems to have been an ideal location to film Batman v Superman and director Zack Snyder sounds enthused about returning, the Michigan Film Office has said it’s too early to confirm whether Justice League will also be filmed in Detroit.
