Julie Hinds, a reporter for Gannett Michigan, suggests why she thinks the latest Batman movie was filmed in Detroit, saying the despair and hope of the city offer a juxtaposition for the filmmakers: “Those two sides of Detroit may be one of the factors that make it an appropriate location for ‘Batman v. Superman,’ a cinematic collision between two very different superheros (sic),” Hinds wrote. “Affleck's brooding, mortal Batman and Henry Cavill's outer-space immigrant Superman.”

For the Record says: It was either that, or something else Hinds failed to even mention in her story — the Superman-Batman movie was handed a film incentive of $35 million in August by the Michigan Film Office, which is among the most lucrative deals in the country
