Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan confirmed to Michigan local radio she's got a role in the coming movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which has been filming in her state.

"I was part of 300 extras," said Stabenow Tuesday on the on the Big Show with Michael Patrick Shiels.

"I really can't say any more than that," said Stabenow. "We all signed forms of confidentiality and ya gotta wait until the movie comes out."

"It was really terrific to see not only the movie being done in Michigan and being done in East Lansing but all the people working from Michigan. It wasn't just extras, ya know, those of us who were doing little bit things."

Stabenow's not the first senator to have a role in a Batman movie.

Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy had a cameo role in The Dark Knight. The Vermont senator, who is a huge Batman fan, also appeared in 1997's Batman and Robin.
