It's Gotham City vs. Metropolis in First Behind-the-Scenes 'Batman vs. Superman' Footage

Last week, we shared some news about the first big scenes being shot for Zack Snyder's hotly anticipated Batman vs. Superman. Today we've got lots of footage from the actual location. If you love football and superheroes, you're probably going to want to check this out.

The scene was shot at Weingart Stadium in East Los Angeles, and features the Metropolis and Gotham football squads facing off in a game. As a real game headed to halftime, Snyder and his crew burst into action to shoot their footage, which consisted of Metropolis scoring a touchdown, a tackle for a loss, and a brief scuffle between the fictional teams. According to Batman News, a Warner Bros. rep told the crowd they were going to be in Batman vs. Superman (seems even Warner Bros. has latched onto that title), and Snyder oversaw the action (from a filmmaking and football standpoint) with the use of a giant megaphone.

While the shoot was only supposed to last until the end of halftime, studio reps told people to hang out after the game in case they had to shoot more footage. That didn't happen, but those who stuck around got a chance to win phones and televisions in a raffle. Very cool.

Check out two videos of the shoot below, then if you're hankering for more behind-the-scenes action, swing on by Henry Cavill News for a series of photos from the day's filming.
