So yesterday it seems that the Batman V Superman production spent a day filming inside the Orion Oaks County Park in Lake Orion, Michigan. CCP signs had been spotted a day or two prior to the trucks and trailers moving in. The last weeks of filming in Michigan seem to be sneak attacks! They move in and move out, and I’m guessing that most days no one even notices. What’s amazing about this set is that it is a fairly substantial structure, right in the middle of a public park, and yet no one seems to have seen it, or at least talked about it on Twitter! Filming here was a day shoot, and intrepid explorers were thwarted from access to the set by security on the trails who informed people simply that ‘ the trails are closed today.’ OK. Going off-trail in the park was a tough option, well actually a muddy one, and there was the additional danger of hunters. Yes, the park allows archery hunting, and it’s the season. Make sure to wear hunter orange.
The construction looked to be some kind of building — high ceilings, possibly two rooms. A local rumor suggested that this might be some kind of crypt. The building did have a decayed, derelict look about it, maybe even vegetation creeping over the inside? Why film this here instead of at the studios? Maybe they needed the bleak background for the setting? We’ll have to wait until 2016 to find out for sure.
