Thousands Show Up For 'Batman vs. Superman' MI Casting Call

Yes Detroit, we'd be dancing too! - the casting call for Batman vs. Superman was held today in Troy, Michigan. At last check an estimated 7,000 people showed up for their chance to be an extra in the film.

Detroit Free Press:

Maryellen Aviano, a Warner Bros. casting coordinator, said Sunday after representatives cut off the line for tryouts that she had seen about 4,000 people. An assistant said another 3,000 were waiting outside for their chance.

We LOVE this guy..

Luckily even with the long lines and cold weather, those waiting took it all in stride..

Sure, being an extra means long hours and okay pay, but the chance to work with Henry, director Zack Snyder and the rest of the cast and crew?.. we'd do it for FREE

So what roles are available? everything from an F.B.I. agent to a baker according to Aviano, who spoke to the local FOX station.

Kellen is right! - While talking to a Detroit station, the casting director for Warner Bros. highlighted exactly why today's wait was MORE than worth it: "It's gonna be an incredible project, we all know it."

We couldn't be happier for you Detroit.. and jealous. Really, REALLY green with envy. Good luck everyone!


  1. I was one of those thousands! Just left a few hours ago... I waited three hours even though I arrived at 11 (guess "a few" ignored the don't arrive early warning). Anyway, super excited and appreciative for the opportunity. Can't wait for this movie. Go Superman!

    1. Let us know how it goes if you get cast. We'd love to hear what you can share. Thanks and good luck! - amazing opportunity.

  2. Glad to read some positivity about MOS 2. I'm getting tired of all the complaining from fanboys surrounding this project.
