Man of Steel helmer Zack Snyder is returning to direct the film, which will see the return of Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, along with the return of Man of Steel stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane. Snyder is co-writing the story with David S. Goyer.
The production is expected to hire 406 Michigan workers, with a full-time equivalent of 426 jobs, plus an additional 6,000 man-days of extra work, according to the release. The production is estimated to use 500 local Michigan vendors and spend $5.1 million on hotels.
“Detroit is a great example of a quintessential American city, and I know it will make the perfect backdrop for our movie,” said Snyder in a statement. “Detroit and the entire state of Michigan have been fantastic collaborators, and we are looking forward to working together on this film.”
Recent films that have been shot in Michigan include Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful, which utilized Pontiac’s Michigan Motion Picture Studios, and Transformers 4.
