Director Zack Snyder shot the first footage in Los Angeles on Saturday for his highly anticipated Batman-Superman team-up film.
Filming was done during half-time at the football game between East Los Angeles College and Victor Valley College at Weingart Stadium. The scene was a game between rivals Gotham City University and Metropolis State University.
“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,” according to Batman-News.
“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 studio then reportedly asked the crowd to wait around after the ELAC-Victor Valley College game ended in case additional shooting was needed.
Principal photography on Batman vs. Superman is expected to fully commence in February for a July 17, 2015 release.
