Batman-Superman Movie to Begin Shooting This Weekend

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.

Watch Zack Snyder’s “Superman” Short (VIDEO)

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.
