'Batman v Superman' Filming At Studios, Latest Casting Rumors


Is that cool or what? - photographer Michael Dore' says he was awakened overnight by the sound of the Metropolis police chopper. Turns out he lives right by the Michigan Motion Picture Studios where earlier a fan captured the pic of the Gotham news van below. What was filmed remains a mystery. Earlier in the week, the cast and crew were spotted at a nearby hotel and there were also reports of filming in Downtown Detroit. As for the rumors of a military scene being shot, nothing seems to have materialized from that. 



Photographer Clay Enos posted the pic above, seemingly from one of those sets. We do hear some filming had to be delayed because of the rain. Let's see what next week brings.

The other big Batman v Superman news involves the long running rumor, that Jason Momoa has been cast as Aquaman. Despite his constant denials, HitFix says he is SO gonna be Aquaman:

While Warner Bros. hasn't made that announcement officially yet, HitFix can confirm that he will be playing the part, and that Zack Snyder has already finalized his designs for the character so shooting can take place soon.


Hopefully the official announcement is coming soon. Another interesting tidbit comes via The Wrap's Jeff Sneider, who is providing a few clues of which additional superheroes and villains we might see in Justice League.

So if you go by that posting, to us that means more proof that a Doomsday appearance could be happening in Batman v Superman (don't forget Henry mentioned him not too long ago). Then again, we're not sure we're ready for the consequences of that..

Finally, today marks one year since Man of Steel was released in theaters. We can't wait to see Henry reprise his role as Superman, hopefully for many more years to come. Happy anniversary!

  1. Moderator, where do you get a Doomsday appearance in BvsS from what you posted above? I don't see it?

    1. Well if they are looking to cast Darkseid in JL, don't see Doomsday in the same film. Plus, Henry has mentioned Doomsday several times since Man of Steel came out. Just a guess.

    2. They will kill off Superman in JL1 if Cavill is leaving at that point. Not in BvsS. WB may be ready to dump Cavill but I don't think they will do it in the next film. I could be wrong. JMHO. . WB was not too happy with results from MOS and they can move forward after JL just fine w/o Superman in JL or the DCCU..

    3. Oh, don't think it's because he wants to leave or they want to dump him. It would just make for a cool storyline. He doesn't really die after all. They could just bring him back in JL. Again, just speculation. If Nikki Finke is correct about what WB is planning, Henry is Superman for a while.

    4. Or not bring him back in JL and save money and allow room for another JL character to be added. If WB is dropping Superman/Cavill from the DCC universe it makes sense to do it in BvsS. Gives Batman a reason to form the complete JL in JL1 and saves money while allowing another DC character to be brought in to replace Superman going forward.

    5. Oh let it go already, jeez like u totally want him out- we get it. But not going to happen, if they were sooo unhappy he would not be reprising his role as Superman. And Mos did fine, maybe not by there deadline but overall it did well. So no not about saving money -they're good -love you Henry...muah!!!!!

    6. DC comics has two top dogs-Superman and Batman. If either of those characters are excluded from the Justice League, there will be a bigger backlash then the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman. They are DC's main cash cows. They sell the most in DVDs, comics, and other merchandise. They have the most fans.
