Who’s protecting Batman and Superman in Detroit?

Posted By on Thu, Jun 26, 2014 at 2:59 PM

We took a drive out to the set of the forthcoming Batman vs. Superman movie in Pontiac, and discovered that a local security guard by the name of Bill (no second name given) is doing a quite stellar job of protecting the Earth’s mightiest heroes.

We’re not even being sarcastic. Bill stealthily descended on us as we had a walk around like a panther. We saw the LexCorp building and some cool Metropolis and Gotham emergency vehicles, but you’ll have to take our word for it because Bill confiscated our memory card. Apparently, the “No through traffic” sign is enough to imply “private property,” and we were in no mood to argue. Thankfully, got pretty much the same pictures we did.

But again, we tip our hats to Bill. He’s probably not earning a ton of money, he certainly isn’t a billionaire playboy, but he’s keeping a tight ship. Bruce and Clark can sleep easy at night.
