The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice car chase that was rumored to begin today will actually start shooting tomorrow, August 7th through Saturday, August 9th. Batman News has obtained an email that was sent out today to local businesses in Detroit around where filming will take place.

Surprisingly residents weren’t warned about loud noises like explosions or gun shots, but they were given a heads up that a helicopter will be flying low to the ground on Saturday. If you live in the Detroit area you’ll want to take a look at all of the street closings listed in the email below. Travel will likely be a pain over the next few days, but everything is expected to return to normal on Sunday, August 10th.

Good afternoon Detroit.

Beginning Thursday, August 7 through Saturday, August 9, 2014, a project in the area will result in road closures that will affect access to the Financial District parking garage. The road closures will also cause intermittent access to Chrysler House, Federal Reserve and the Qube building entrances.

Road Closures

  • Fort Street from Griswold Street to Shelby Street will be closed on Thursday, August 7 to Saturday, August 9, 2014.
  • Congress Street from Woodward Avenue to Washington Boulevard will be closed on Saturday, August 9, 2014.
  • Griswold Street from Lafayette Street to Larned Street will be closed on Saturday, August 9, 2014.
  • All streets will reopen on Sunday, August 10, 2014.

Financial District (Chrysler House) Parking Garage Entrance/Exit Closures

  • The Shelby Street entrance will be open on Thursday, August 7 and Friday, August 8, 2014. During this time Shelby Street will be converted for two way traffic from Lafayette Street to the parking garage entrance.
  • Due to the full closure of Shelby Street on Saturday, August 9, 2014, the Shelby Street entrance to the parking garage will be closed. Team members will need to use the Lafayette Street entrance/exit during this time.
  • Normal operation will resume on Sunday, August 10, 2014.
  • Chrysler House, Federal Reserve and the Qube Entrance/Exit Intermittent Closures
  • Starting on Thursday, August 7 to Saturday, August 9, 2014, the Fort Street entrance/exits to both Chrysler House and Federal Reserve buildings will be closed intermittently for the project.  Please use Griswold Street entrance for Chrysler House and the back/alley entrance for the Federal Reserve.
  • On Saturday, August 9, 2014, the south entrance/exit of the Qube on Griswold Street will also be closed intermittently.  Please access the building using the Woodward Avenue entrances/exits.
  • Normal operation will resume on Sunday, August 10, 2014.

On Saturday, August 9, 2014, you may hear or see a helicopter flying low near Fort Street, please do not be alarmed.

As well, there will be clear directional signage posted during this time.

If they really are filming a car chase scene over the next few days, hopefully that means they’re bringing out the Batmobile! You have to have a good guy and a bad guy for a chase, right? I don’t think Superman or Wonder Woman would have to drive. Stay tuned to Batman News for all the latest on what goes down on this Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shoot.

Michigan native Dan Newman spotted Zack Snyder looking over the routes of the big car chase today, and he caught it all on video!
