Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Set Features a Green Screen, Superman Statue

First thought to be some kind of cast or model for whatever minor tweaks might be happening to the Superman costume, the image above (via Michigan Movies & More) appears to in fact be a larger-than-life statue of the Man of Steel, on the set of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It's not yet clear just why there's a Superman statue on the set, nor why it looks somewhat different from the costume seen in Man of Steel (there are, as far as we can tell here, none of the detailing bits that constitute his "belt" on the statue, and the "S" shield certainly seems larger here than it was on screen). There's always the outside chance that this is a nod to the Centenniel Park statue erected after the death of Superman in the comics -- a story that both director Zack Snyder and star Henry Cavill have spoken warmly of in the past -- but it seems wildly unlikely that they would do that in the second movie...and even more unlikely it would have happened offscreen between films.

This set, ironically, either is or is in the area of the old GM building across the street from the Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac, Michigan -- which makes it right on top of the new LexCorp building, which is the GM building. There's currently tarps obscuring any identifying marks on the building, according to on-set snoops, but the expectation is that this week they will be filming there and there's a good chance fans will get a good look at the nu-look, Google-inspired LexCorp.
