Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman filming a football stadium scene this weekend!
Wasting no time, it seems that Zack Snyder's BATMAN VS SUPERMAN film is set to begin shooting this weekend, filming a football game between "Gotham City University and rival Metropolis State University" during the halftime of the game between ELAC and Victor Valley College at East Los Angeles College on October 19th. No word on whether or not the principle stars Ben Affleck or Henry Cavill will be there, but if you're in the L.A. area or happen to be an ELAC student, this could be your opportunity to "get in the game."
Warner Bros. Pictures announced through a press release that Snyder and producers of the film are looking for people in the Los Angeles area, preferably ELAC students, to be extras for the upcoming film.
The stadium will be made into the backdrop for a football game between Gotham City University and rival Metropolis State University.
The first 2,000 people who sit in the filming area of the stadium will receive T-shirts designed by Snyder for those participating in the filming and prizes will be raffled throughout the night.
The crowd will sport Gotham Citys colors, black and gold.
The film will shoot three takes of three plays during halftime. The crew will be capturing the actors and crowd’s reactions.
ELAC’s College event and Venue Coordinator, Ernest Burnett, said that the filming will be about 20 minutes during halftime. The second half of ELAC’s game will follow the film shoot.
The last DCU film to feature a stadium scene resulted in the destruction of said stadium in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, although I'd wager this is more of a "setting" kind of thing, establishing the worlds of both Gotham City and Metropolis. Of course, that's pure speculation as nobody but the production really knows how it's all shaking out. I think the most important thing to glean from this news is that BATMAN VS SUPERMAN is actually happening and wasn't just a geektastic announcement at Comic Con.
BATMAN VS SUPERMAN is set for release on July 17, 2015.
