Hold on to your Bat-pants, kids, cause things are about to get all superheroic up in here. Though there's no official word on additional cast members, Zack Snyder will begin shooting his Batman vs. Superman movie this weekend, outdoors, in front of thousands of people.
The filming will take place on October 19 at East Los Angeles College Weingart stadium during halftime of a previously scheduled game. At halftime, the stadium will be transformed into Gotham City University stadium in order to shoot footage of a fictional football game between Gotham City and Metropolis State University.
Fans who manage to sit in one of the 2,000 seats in the dedicated filming area will take home T-shirts and other prizes during what might just be the longest halftime show in history. But seriously, how are they doing all this during halftime?
Producers are looking for extras now, and if you happen to be a student that'll work in your favor. They'll be filming three takes of three plays during halftime, and there's no word on whether Batman (Ben Affleck) or Superman (Henry Cavill) will be involved in the scene.
A much-publicized football scene was also part of The Dark Knight Rises, in which Bane (Tom Hardy) arrives and blows up part of the field. Seeing as it's taking place in the middle of an actual football game (and it's only three takes), don't expect lots of explosions or anything like that. We'd also be surprised to see either superhero in costume since Warner Bros. likes to release official images before the production films out in the open, but you never know. Maybe this weekend gives us our first glimpse of the new Bat-fleck. If anything, we'll get to see a tiny taste of what Snyder has planned for his version of Gotham City. This will be our first look at a live-action Gotham City from a director who isn't Christopher Nolan since 1997's Batman and Robin.
Stay tuned. More info on the shooting can be found over at the school's website.
