BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN: First Scenes Being Shot at East Los Angeles College Football Stadium on October 19 - UPDATE
Not slated to begin full production and principle photography until early 2014, director Zack Synder is taking the opportunity to use real football fans in a stadium to film some scenes for the Man of Steel sequel on this Saturday, October 19.
According to the East Los Angeles College campus newspaper, the first scenes for Batman/Superman will be shot at halftime of the East Los Angeles College vs. Victor Valley College game this weekend. During halftime, the stadium will reportedly transform into Gotham City University's stadium and have Gotham City University facing their rival Metropolis State University.
The first 2,000 fans attending the game, and who sit in filming areas, will also receive a free shirt to wear during the filming. Three takes are reportedly being filmed during halftime to get actor and fans reactions but no word on if any full, organized plays will occur on the field for the scenes.
Honestly, those can all be filmed with green screen on a sound stage in a more controlled environment anyway. Or even when the East Los Angeles College stadium is not hosting a real game.
The untitled Batman/Superman movie—which is also being referred to as Batman vs. Superman—releases in theaters on July 17, 2015.
