Why Are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Moving the Fam to Detroit?

From the Brentwood Farmer's Market to the Santa Monica beaches, the Affleck-Garner tribe is a fixture in the Los Angeles area. So why are they headed to Motown?

Jennifer Garner confessed to Detroit Sports 105.1 on Wednesday that she's packing up the kids — Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel — and joining her husband, Ben Affleck, in the Michigan city as he gets his superhero on.

"I'll be there this summer, all summer," Garner said. "My husband Ben is filming… 'Batman' is shooting… or whatever it's called. I don't know what it's called. 'Superman With Batman,' or whatever it is. But he is shooting this summer, so we'll be there."

Garner's confusion isn't hers alone —Warner Bros. Pictures has yet to release an official title for the film that'll see Affleck's Batman square off against Henry Cavill's Superman, but we do know we'll be seeing it on May 6, 2016.

This isn't the first time the family has followed Ben to a film set. "When [Ben's] directing, especially, I need to be taking care of him," Jennifer told the September 2013 issue of Allure magazine. "I need to be taking care of our family."
