Full Recap of ‘Batman vs Superman’ Filming

Over the weekend, Zack Snyder kicked off principal photography on “Batman vs Superman” by filming a football sequence at East Los Angeles College. During halftime of the game between the home school and Victor Valley College, Snyder and company came out to film two sequences from various angles. The scene is obviously supposed to take place in Gotham, as the crowd of extras was directed to cheer for the fictional Gotham City University team, and to boo the Metropolis State University players. The background actors were also given all kinds of cool, specially designed shirts and merchandise to wear to make the crowd look like an authentic crowd of football fans.

Over at Batman-News, they gave the following description of the sequences being filmed:

“Then two scenes were filmed. Both plays were from around Gotham city’s 30 yard line. The first play was a tackle for a Metropolis loss. The second was for a touchdown pass to the corner of the end zone for Metropolis. Then the bench cleared for Gotham and they had to break up a fight on the field. Gotham never even went on offense. Zack Snyder was directing, he was on the mega phone calling the plays and cuts.”

And you know what THIS means! These sequences can only mean one thing! This film will HAVE…a football scene in it. Sorry. That’s really all there is to report here.

Of note, there was no sign of Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, or any of the other lead actors. Also, Zack Snyder’s Assistant Director referred to the film as “Batman vs Superman” while directing the extras, so that title is still in play. Last thing I picked up on was that the color scheme for the GCU team seems to be an homage to “The Dark Knight Rises” which also used the Pittsburgh Steelers’ black and yellow. A few folks were able to grab some media from the filming- pictures and video. The photos come from Andrew Fierro at BKBN.net, while the video is credited to Sad Puppy Productions. Enjoy, and feel free to discuss the explosive ramifications of what this scene could mean for the film, and the DC Cinematic Universe at large.

    So this takes place in Gotham City i’m assuming? Since the crowd consists of mostly GCU fans? Interesting.

  • Tey

    I am not sure Metropolis have any stadiums left…

  • The Usual Suspect

    Ba-dum tsh.

  • NihilistZerO

    Some of those Football players look WAAYYYYYY to old for college :-)

  • Daniel

    So, they’re really going through with this? Ben Affleck and all? Even after the people have spoken? They are going to ignore us, the fans mind you and go the Hollywood way? I’m not seeing this movie out of spite, same with Michael Bays “turtles”.

    I think it’s for a SuperBowl ad

    The people also spoke about Heath Ledger. I’m pretty sure they’re going to ignore the haters and move forward with Batfleck.

  • Mario-Francisco Robles

    Checkmate.

  • Hephaestus1

    The football game symbolizes conflict.

  • AlexiasLazar

    I think B.A. will be great!

  • Pablo Chacon

    Ok, well…Err…Umm…Why should I give a shit about this?

  • Theron

    Haha you’re not gonna watch a gigantic blockbuster film! Sucks for you! Oh wait you’re actually going to watch it because you’re like that dumb annoying guy who keeps saying a party is going to be lame because of who’s throwing it but then you see all the fun everyone is having so you just sneak in and act like you were on board all along.

  • Hoo-Hafafasfa

    You typed it.

  • Thad

    ..may not be an important plot point, as it is a way to tie the two batman/superman universes together.

  • Jespenson

    Well… Duh.

  • Musikonica

    Ben Affleck’s not going to be as bad as you think, I’m sure. Or his friend, often-employer, and Batman fan Kevin Smith would probably show some extreme disappointment in Ben.
    Try to save judgments on what we’ve seen of Affleck in the past. Perhaps he’s grown as an actor, but you might miss an awesome movie experience because you’ve closed your mind.
