Production is about to wrap for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in Michigan and before heading out, director Zack Snyder wanted to take a moment to thank the town and say a little something about Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.

Hit the jump to catch what Snyder had to say including the possibility of returning to certain Michigan-based locations for future films.  Batman v Superman opens on March 25, 2016 and stars Ben Affleck, Henry CavillGal GadotJesse EisenbergAmy AdamsLaurence FishburneJason MomoaHolly HunterScoot McNairy and Jeremy Irons.

“We’re getting ready to wrap it up and take off and I just wanted to say thanks to you guys for being strong supporters of the movie and coming down and saying hey.  I’ve had a great time in Michigan.  I just wanted to say thanks to you guys and just to Detroit itself.”

Even though Snyder is prepping to wrap Michigan, he’s still got more Batman v Superman filming ahead of him.  Here’s where the production is off to next:

“We head to Chicago after this and then we have a couple more locations, but we’re getting close as they say.  It’s a long shoot.”

When asked if there’s any chance he’d return to Detroit to shoot some more, probably for Justice League Part One, Snyder replied:

“I feel like there’s a really good chance we’re gonna be back.  We have a couple sort of established locations here in Detroit that, you know, I think if we make another movie – I’m knocking on wood because, you know, it’s the movie business – but we would have to come back and shoot those.  That would be fun.”

Snyder also snuck in a little Aquaman talk as well:

“I think also the last time I called, we talked a little bit about Aquaman, but it hadn’t been announced that Jason Momoa was gonna play Aquaman.  I was trying to protect you guys from his wrath.  The man is a monster.  The guy is awesome and he’s so passionate.  I was hanging out with him and he’s just here in Detroit loving on it so hard.  He’s a great guy, but like I say, not a small individual.”
