With production on Batman vs. Superman scheduled to begin next year in his alma mater's home state, film producer and Eastern Michigan University grad Wesley Coller spoke today with M Live regarding the much-anticipated Man of Steel sequel.

“[My daughter’s] favorite book is this little Wonder Woman flip book,” Coller says of the recent announcement that Gal Gadot will be portraying the Amazon princess. “It has the lasso, the invisible plane, the bracelets – every page has an image she’s just in awe with. And something that’s become a reality, being a dad with a new daughter, is that I have a special place in my heart for the idea of a strong, empowered female superhero being out there.”

As for a future spinoff film featuring the character, Coller says fans may have a bit longer to wait.

“We’re super excited to have her in the film," he says. "It will be a ton of fun, but at the same time, we’ve got to stay focused on the film we’re working on now.”

Coller also addressed some of the more negative comments regarding Ben Affleck being cast in the Batman role.

“Anything you do that’s culturally significant," he says. "or any time you deal with an iconic character or story, you’re going to hear responses from every possible perspective… If anything, that gauges the relevance of a property or character, and it’s invigorating to know people care that much. It inspires you to make the coolest version of the movie that you can. Ben is the perfect fit for Zack’s vision for this story.”

Batman vs. Superman will feature the return of Henry Cavill as Superman, facing off against Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. Production is slated to begin at Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac where it will occupy all seven sound stages on the lot in addition to several locations around the state.

The film, set for release on July 27, 2015, also stars Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne with Joaquin Phoenix currently rumored for a major role.
