Some of the biggest movies of the past decade — including Oz the Great and Powerful, and the third and fourth Transformers films — have been shot in Detroit, where producers can take advantage of Michigan’s generous film incentives, not to mention the city’s abundant empty lots. Along with the movie boom, Motor City has seen the rise of another, more covert industry: amateur photography by people who stake out sets and share their pictures online. When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice filmed in Detroit this summer, newspapers and websites combed social media sites, looking for the latest on-set photos — many of which came from a Twitter user named @bananadoc.
Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, and the rest of the Gone Girl cast discussed the film at its premiere Friday night.
Ben Affleck will definitely look intimidating in his new Batman suit, but will he be able to move his head? The cowl and cape worn by Affleck in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice went on display at San Diego’s Comic-Con yesterday, revealing that the head piece — made of stiff, leather-like material — is attached directly to the cape.
