Though casting on ‘Batman vs. Superman‘ has barely begun (or, if it has, it hasn’t been announced publicly yet), filming on the superhero crossover is set to begin this weekend on October 19 in Los Angeles.
Zack Snyder will shoot part of ‘Batman vs. Superman’ on Saturday at East Los Angeles College Weingart Stadium during halftime of their 6:30pm football game. At halftime, the stadium will be transformed into Gotham City University stadium and Synder will shoot multiple scenes of a college football game between Gotham City and Metropolis State University. (Isn’t Metropolis a city?)
It’s unclear if Ben Affleck will make his first appearance as Batman or if Henry Cavill will return as Superman, but we’ll guess they won’t be involved. Though, the last time a Batman movie filmed a football scene at a stadium (see: Bane in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘), it turned out to be a big part of the movie.
Even better, Snyder and Warner Bros. are looking for extras to fill the stadium for the shoot. According to a press release, “The first 2,000 people who sit in the filming area of the stadium will receive T-shirts designed by Snyder” and prizes will be raffled throughout the night.
