Earlier this week, we reported that the highly-anticipated superhero sequel Batman Vs. Superman shot three football scenes during halftime of Saturday night's East Los Angeles College football game. Today, we have video from the shoot, plus descriptions of the production. Director Zack Snyder was spotted on the set, but none of the principal actors such as Henry Cavill or Ben Affleck were present.
"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 Snyder was directing, he was on the mega phone calling the plays and cuts."
Another report from the set reveals that Warner Bros. handed out t-shirts for the fictional colleges Gotham City University and Metropolis University to the fans who were in attendance.
"Day 1 of filming for 2015's Batman Vs. Superman. The scene takes place at Gotham City University's Stadium facing off against rivals Metropolis University. Everyone in the audience was given various Gotham Football shirts. Some black, some yellow, some T Shirts, some sweatshirts, etc. Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300, Man of Steel) was on set, however the main characters were not there."
Warner Bros. asked fans to stick around after the actual football game between East Los Angeles College and Victor Valley College at Weingart Stadium, in case more scenes had to be shot. However, no additional filming took place, but the studio did raffle off prizes for the fans, including Nokia cell phones and televisions.
