A June 13 fundraiser at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak will give one supporter eager for Hollywood stardom a movie experience they'll likely never forget on the screen and at their bank.
The Detroit Zoo's Twitter page confirms that a walk-on role as an extra in the Zack Snyder-directed "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice" movie went for $3,500 at the fundraiser's auction.
The movie, starring Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman, is expected to be released on May 6, 2016 and film all summer in Metro Detroit.
Proceeds from the fundraiser, called Sunset at the Zoo, support the Detroit Zoological Society and its mission of celebrating and saving wildlife.
It's unclear what the role won at the auction will be for the film.
The "Batman vs. Superman" film is considered the most expensive movie to ever be shot in Michigan (the project budget is $131 million, according to the Michigan Film Office) and could be released the same day as the untitled "Captain American 3" film backed by Disney.
The Michigan Film Office awarded "Batman vs. Superman" filmmakers last summer an incentive of $35 million for in-state work.
The film office expects the movie to create hundreds of jobs for crew members and about 6,000 jobs for extras.
A casting call for the film was held last month at the Somerset Inn at 2601 W. Big Beaver Road in Troy.
Casting directors sought "men and women at least 18 years old who are clean-cut military and law enforcement types or business executives in suits."
