So does this give us any clues in the direction that WB/affleck/goyer/Snyder is taking this movie/franchise
As a Michigander, I think this is great news The new Transformers movie is doing a lot of filming in Michigan as well, but the Transformers movies aren't very good.....
It's to do with the good tax credit system the state has - MOS2 is getting $35 million.

Yeah, the tax credit is a good idea. At least they are finally trying to really improve the economy.

As many as 50,000 stray dogs roam the streets and vacant homes of bankrupt Detroit, replacing residents, menacing humans who remain and overwhelming the city’s ability to find them homes or peaceful deaths.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Detroit is messed up. I was born and raised in Michigan, and I remember going through the city and some areas would be very nice, but then I would go into another area, which was full of abandoned and boarded up homes and high-rises with graffiti and stuff, and it looked like a scene out of a Mad Max movie. The city has been on a downhill spiral since the 70's, and the filing for bankruptcy is the best thing to happen to it in years, because it is is a chance at a new start. Let's just hope that the overly powerful unions don't screw up any potential recovery. Aside from just Detroit, there is lots people-less forested areas that could be used.

As Matt Damon stated in those quotes fiurther upthread, the Batman role doesn't require much acting, (although a good actor could have dne more with the role than Bale did), so Affleck needs to really keep from bumping into suff on set. If he can do this, he at least shouldn't be any worse than the previous Batman actor.
Yeah I think it really requires just having the right "presence" for the role, more than anything. Whether Affleck has that, I don't know, but the Batman costume itself is so powerful and iconic that it'll probably do a lot of the work for him anyway.

The thing I'm looking forward to is how Trey Parker and Matt Stone deal with Afleck's casting. I hope the towns people of South Park go nuts.

What the city really needs is for a corporation with military contracts to swoop in. Maybe help out the police.....

Perfect opportunity to introduce Krypto and Ace, the Bat Hound!

Speaking of which, some people are erecting a Robocop statue in detroit. It was successfully funded through kickstarter.

Peter Weller even endorsed it on Funnyordie.com

Some people hated the idea. They thought Robocop represented a hell hole future for Detriot being glorfied

But iss it not believed that Robocop will help clean up the city? (IE: bringing in Tourism that will bring in an influx of money that could be spent)

Oh, I think Detroit was sending itself there no matter what.

Robocop was designed to be somewhat of the "ultimate cop" to help protect Delta City once OCP had finally eradicated Detroit and built it.

^Well, he was meant to be the prototype of a new product line of RoboCops, but the people behind the project all ended up, err, downsized from existence. And if you believe the movie sequel, they never managed to get a second one to work anyway.

Sequel? I'm sorry, I think you're mistaken. There was only ever one RoboCop movie made.
