Batman vs. Superman will be shooting this weekend according to Latino Review. The scene in question is a campus football scene. Latino Review, and their legion of minions, have obtained this knowledge and are sharing it with the world. So if you are in Los Angeles area and live near East Los Angeles College, you might make it into the film. Besides bragging rights, you can also score yourself a t-shirt.
 
Here is the news story:
 
Warner Bros. Pictures new untitled Superman/Batman project comes to film at East Los Angeles College Weingart stadium during halftime of the Oct. 19 Husky football game.
 
Zack Snyder who directed films such as this past summer’s blockbuster “Man of Steel,” and other movies like “300,” “Watchmen” and “Sucker Punch,” directs the upcoming film.
 
ELAC and Victor Valley College will kickoff the game at 6:30 p.m. At halftime, the stadium will transform into Gotham City University home stadium.
 
Warner Bros. Pictures announced through a press release that Snyder and producers of the film are looking for people in the Los Angeles area, preferably ELAC students, to be extras for the upcoming film.
 
The stadium will be made into the backdrop for a football game between Gotham City University and rival Metropolis State University.
The first 2,000 people who sit in the filming area of the stadium will receive T-shirts designed by Snyder for those participating in the filming and prizes will be raffled throughout the night.
 
The crowd will sport Gotham Citys colors, black and gold.
 
The film will shoot three takes of three plays during halftime. The crew will be capturing the actors and crowd’s reactions.
 
ELAC’s College event and Venue Coordinator, Ernest Burnett, said that the filming will be about 20 minutes during halftime. The second half of ELAC’s game will follow the film shoot.
 
Snyder decided to use ELAC’s stadium to support ELAC and the community.
 
“They could have done this on a night when we didn’t have a home game. They wanted to support the school,” Burnett said.
ELAC has approached the feature film industry to gain revenue for the college. Features films want to use ELAC because it’s a film friendly school.
 
“Our visibility among the film community is higher than a lot of schools and I have to give a lot of credit. The experiences of the people that have come and shot here are very good. Because students know the deal now, like they notice the production truck and then move on to class, it’s more common,” Burnett said.
 
“Feature films don’t usually use community college campuses, because feature films’ schedules change and we can’t accommodate. But we want their business because they come for weeks not just a day. We want to make a lot of money over a small smaller amount of time,” Burnett said.
 
“It’s also a big opportunity for us (ELAC), and to cheer on our Huskies. Victor Valley is not a bad team,” Burnett said.

 Just remember the football scene in Dark Knight Rises.  Thus could get ugly.

Just remember this involves Ben Affleck, it's already as ugly as it will get.

If I was Zack Snyder, I'd be insisting that any reference to Sucker Punch be removed from any and all media releases bearing my name.

The title of the movie sucks but my problem is if this is the sequel to MOS why does Batman have top billing. Really hope that chance the title of the movie.

I wonder if any of the major actors in the movie will be there for this scene.

Go Metro State! They are the good team that always does the right thing. They only use necessary force to get the touchdown. But when push comes to shove and the game is at stake they will reluctantly destroy the other team's quarterback then cry about it right after.

 jedibanner, your a fucking troll this is done with get over it...

As the article states, the film is still untitled. Just because a lot of us call it Batman vs. Superman doesn't mean that's what it'll be called. Heck, it could end up being called Man of Steel 2: World's Finest for all we know.

 I wish I was in the area, that would be pretty cool. I bet the place will be packe by many people in Batman shirts... I look forward to seeing a few photos from the night. Ben is a good actor, I really enjoyed his reaction on Fallon. Can't wait to see this movie. Great storyline to have the two cities play each other.
