Batman vs Superman: Pictures Show Set Being Walled Off as Ben Affleck Gives Details

October 6, 2014 Updated: October 6, 2014

New photos from Michigan show one of the upcoming sets for Batman vs Superman being walled off.

The pictures show plywood and fake hedges outside the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University in East Lansing, where filming is slated to start soon.

Set photos from other places in Michigan, principally Detroit, have been popping up for weeks, showing the Batmobile and other aspects of the upcoming movie. 

Director Zack Snyder was spotted on the campus earlier this year, at the museum.

The museum said on its website that it will be closed from October 13 through October 30 for “a private rental.”

Meanwhile, Ben Affleck (Batman) told the Inquirer that the movie “has a great script.”

“It has a very talented director (Snyder), a really strong, smart, robust and experienced studio behind it, so it’s very exciting,” he said.

He also described working with Snyder.

“Zack has more energy than anybody I know. He works as hard as anybody. He’s in the gym in the morning and storyboards every single shot, which is a huge amount of work. So everybody knows what’s going on. He’s got enormous visual talent. I stand there and he sets up shots. We do the blocking and…I see a shot from Zack and I think, I never would have thought of that.

“He is so visually inventive so that’s quite pleasant. Action movies take a lot of days and involve a lot of stunts and visual effects—that combination and the story has its own challenges but I’m enjoying it. What I’ve learned from Zack in the movie are the cutting-edge visual effects—what we’re able to do now and how you integrate that into a story. He’s very gifted.”

Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is slated to hit theaters on March 25, 2016.
