Trying to track down the Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice filming locations in Michigan over the past few days has proven to be a challenge and it doesn’t look like the search is going to end anytime soon as the movie is expected to spend most of the summer filming in and around Detroit.
The production is obviously being diligent about keeping things under wraps and the fans/photographers/curious locals who do track down any filming locations don’t seem too anxious to give away details (and why should they, whoever gets the first good photos of Ben or Henry filming on location in costume is going to make a fortune).
So, that leaves the rest of us who are just trying to track the production in a cluster of rumors, lies, and seemingly constant schedule changes.
In an effort to preserve my own sanity, I’ve decided to set up a Batman V. Superman Open Thread here where I can dump all of the rumored locations in one place and readers can add what they’ve heard in the comments. Hopefully, we can get a group effort going and sort out what’s BS and what’s legit.
Here are a few confirmed locations where they have shot so far:
5/14: Batman V. Superman filming in Keego Harbor
Here’s what we know now going forward (labeled accordingly):
CONFIRMED: Batman V. Superman is based at, and doing most filming, at the Michigan Motion Picture Studios located at 1999 Centerpoint Pkwy, Pontiac, MI

UPDATE (6/19): RUMOR: They’re setting up the mobile woodshop [stacked shipping containers] on the corner of Sixth & Abbott St. in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood that might be for BVS. (Check out the details in the comment below.
I’ll be doing my best to continue updating this page as more news emerges. And, keep in mind, even the “confirmed” location can change at the last minute due to weather, illness, etc.
