The first footage for the much-anticipated Batman/Superman movie has been filmed.
As we reported earlier this week, Zack Snyder chose a football game at East Los Angeles College’s Weingart Stadium to film scenes for a match between Gotham City University and Metropolis State University, and Batman-News was on hand to see what went down;
It started with Warner Bros. telling the crowd that they were going to be in Batman vs. Superman. Yes, a Warner Bros. representative referred to the movie as Batman vs. Superman. That’s still not the official title, but it’s one that keeps coming up. Warner Bros. also announced that this would be the opening of the movie. Then two scenes were filmed. Both plays were from around Gotham city’s 30 yard line. The first play was a tackle for a Metropolis loss. The second was for a touchdown pass to the corner of the end zone for Metropolis. Then the bench cleared for Gotham and they had to break up a fight on the field. Gotham never even went on offense. Zack Synder was directing, he was on the mega phone calling the plays and cuts.
The site also reports that the crowd was asked to stick around after the game finished in case any further filming was required, but none actually took place.
Batman vs. Superman is due to start principal photography in February, and release on July 17 2015.
