Scenes will be used for football game between Gotham University and Metropolis State University

Warner Bros. is getting an early star on the untitled Batman-Superman movie and reportedly will shoot part of the film this weekend on the East Los Angeles College Campus.

The scene revolves around game played between Gotham University and Metropolis State College. Latino Review first noticed the news, which appeared in the East Los Angeles College Campus News.

Helmed by Zack Snyder, the film seems to already pay homage to Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” which also featured a major set piece at a football stadium (Warner Bros. used the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Heinz Field).

Ben Affleck and Other Casting Controversies

The film is technically still in pre-production, as a cast is being assembled and its two stars, Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, are currently shooting movies and will not be done until the end of the year. These shoots are probably being done to take advantage of the football season, with the crew revisiting this part of the script when more of the cast is assembled.

The Batman-Superman movie opens July 17, 2015.

  1. Metropolis is New York City by day and Gotham is NYC by night, so are Gotham University and Metropolis State College cross-town rivals, like the world champion Los Angeles Lakers and the happy-go-lucky L.A. Clippers? Awkward! During Monday night football, when the Bat Signal is on, can anybody see it from the Gotham University stadium? And does the Metropolis State College blimp say “Superman Is A Pimp”?

    Appearantly people that lives w their parents only think it a hit and seen it. Most people have better things to do then defend a franchise that’s been going under for years. How old are you? Sure your old enough to be on the computer?

  3. E.V. says:

    I’m guessing Henry Cavill will be standing in front of a green screen, serious emotional face, teeth gritting, arms outstretched for 8 hours at a time.

  4. Smash Adams says:

    That pic of Snyder. I guess someone said “hey zack, I hear you’re filming batman/superman this weekend” and then took his reaction shot.

  5. Bruce says:

    Andrew, you have the intellect and cunning of a genetically modified apple. The reasons Bale decided not to play Batman for this upcoming movie are admirable, while Affleck will cash in where he can. Please go back to hiding under your bridge.

  6. amanda says:

    Please tell me Ben is not playing Batman!!!! How are they going to mix franchises when one sucked and the other was a hit?

    • Ben is playing batman he has two oscars and is in finches next film Nolan doesn’t even have one Oscar lol now shut up u moron

      • Dood says:

        George Clooney also has 2 oscars, and has been nominated for oscars in six different categories. We all know how awesome of a Batman he was…

    • Amanda you’re a freaking moron lol Manf of steel didnt bomb at all u idiot lol it cost 225 million to make and has made 831 millon worldwide Moron much? Lol

    • amanda says:

      I don’t see why they keep making Superman movies, they’ve all been bombing how LONG? Maybe adding homepage to the new Batman with Superman they think it’ll work. Don’t bring Batman down

  7. Steve says:

    There’s absolutely no chance that David Goyer’s script for a sequel that was greenlighted from a pitch in mid-July is any good at this point, just four months later. Man of Steel was terrible and it took much longer to gestate.
