Ben Affleck was photographed filming his role of Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice over the weekend in Detroit, Mich.

The city serves as a backdrop for Metropolis, the fictional home turf of Superman in the DC Comics universe, with filming to eventually proceed to Chicago for scenes involving Batman’s Gotham City.

Affleck joins Henry Cavill (Superman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) in this cinematic gathering of superheroes scheduled for release on March 25, 2016.
