Batman and Superman are coming to Michigan.

Zack Snyder’s untitled “Man of Steel” sequel will film in the state after snagging an incentive of $35 million on $131 million of projected in-state expenditures, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Filming on the superhero tentpole will take place in Detroit and other parts of the state.

The movie, starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, is is expected to hire 406 Michigan workers, with a full-time equivalent of 426 jobs, plus an additional 6,000 man-days of extra work.

“Detroit is a great example of a quintessential American city, and I know it will make the perfect backdrop for our movie,” said Snyder in a statement. “Detroit and the entire state of Michigan have been fantastic collaborators, and we are looking forward to working together on this film.”

“Transformers 4″ also took advantage of Michigan’s generous tax credits.

The Batman and Superman teaming will occur first quarter 2014, according to the trade.
