"Man of Steel" actor Henry Cavil was spotted in Detroit, Mich. to report on set for "Batman vs. Superman".

According to HenryCavillNews.com, the actor chatted up locals at a bar called Imperial, telling them he'd be in the area for up to 10 months.  MLive.com was able to reach out to those who had the encounter with Cavill, identifying them as music video director Adrean Mangiardi, musician Mark Levin and a few others.

"My initial thought was 'Whoah, there's a guy just making a living as an actor,'" Mangiardi told MLive.com.  "I've seen some his work - TV shows, things like that - but I didn't expect him to show up at Imperial...It was definitely unexpected, but nice. He seemed like just another guy enjoying the night." (Click here to view photos of Cavill in Detroit)

Though "Man of Steel 2" has been nicknamed "Batman vs. Superman", there is speculation that the film is actually a "Justice League" movie since the addition of Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot.

"You've already got Batman, you've got Superman, you've got Wonder Woman," Smith said during a recent "Fatman on Batman" podcast.  "There's your trinity, right there. Then, there's a rumor that perhaps Aquaman is going to be joining the cast.  And there's a rumor that the John Stewart Green Lantern will be joining the cast. So if that's the case kiddies, smells like we've got ourselves a secret Justice League movie brewing, so good for Zack Snyder and David Goyer."

Gadot also reportedly signed on for three films relating to the "Man of Steel" franchise, including solo "Wonder Woman" movie and the speculated "Justice League" film.

"The move make sense for Warners to overextend its since they still don't know how [audiences] will react to Wonder Woman in the untitled 'Superman-Batman' movie," Variety reports. "Since its taken so long to find the right parts to make a Wonder Woman movie work, WB and DC don't want to rush into a large commitment if fans are still not drawn to a stand alone feature of the character."
