‘Batman Vs. Superman’ Opens Production Office in Pontiac, Michigan

Shooting on Warner Bros. highly-anticipated Batman Vs. Superman is about to begin, with the sequel setting up their official headquarters in Pontiac, Michigan, according to Production Weekly. Patrick Tatopoulos has joined the sequel as production designer.

In related news, Production Weekly also reveals that director Christopher McQuarrie is currently scouting locations in London for Mission: Impossible 5, with production scheduled to begin in February 2014.

Batman vs. Superman sets up shop in Pontiac, Michigan While many fans may know Patrick Tatopoulos best as the director of Underworld 3: The Rise of The Lycans, he has served as production designer on several big budget movies such as Independence Day, Live Free or Die Hard, last year's Total Recall remake and the upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire.

We reported in August that the sequel will shoot in Detroit and other surrounding areas in Michigan, with production starting in the first quarter of 2014. The production was approved for a $35 million tax credit, based on an estimated $131 million of in-state expenditures.

Zack Snyder is directing from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Henry Cavill (Clark Kent/Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) are reprising their roles from this summer's Man of Steel, with Ben Affleck portraying Batman.

In regards to Mission: Impossible 5, little is known about the sequel, except that Christopher McQuarrie is directing from a script by Drew Pearce, with Tom Cruise returning as IMF agent Ethan Hunt.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters March 25th, 2016.

Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation comes to theaters July 31st, 2015.
