Ben Affleck has spent basically his entire summer in Detroit filming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Actually, he’s been staying a mere two blocks down from my house, but unfortunately not once did I see him or Jen or anyone strolling around the neighborhood or any shit like that.
During his stay, it appears that he’s taken a liking to our fair city and the cars that we are known for producing (technically, their made in Canada, Mexico and a number of other states but FUCK that we made that shit! *eye roll*). In an interview with our local paper he had this to say:
“I went and got a Ford and got a GM car and traded in Japanese cars that I had,” he said. “I know there are Japanese cars built in Kentucky now, and the world’s a complicated place and so on. It felt right. It felt right to contribute to the economic well-being of this area.”
"It’s been really inspiring to see ways that people here are working and plugging away and rebounding and dedicating themselves to the city,” he said. “There’s this whole kind of spirit here of, `Hey, we’re on the comeback’ kind of thing.”
So yeah, there ya go. Ben likes it in Detroit - probably the closest thing we have to a real Gotham City.
