Ben Affleck boosts Detroit

Ben Affleck is giving Detroit some solid love this month. Fans of him and his wife Jennifer Garner no doubt are thrilled they’ve chosen to spend so much of their time in Metro Detroit while filming Batman v. Superman.

Affleck also participated in the now-famous Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. He sported a “Detroit City” t-shirt while doing so. You can check out the video here on his Facebook page.

Detroit can always use great PR – so thanks, Ben!
