Untitled Superman/Batman Film To Begin Production In East Los Angeles

Superman/Batman sequel Ban Affleck

Zach Snyder will be starting early with filming a few frames for the upcoming Warner Bros film the still untitled Superman/Batman this weekend. The film will be shooting in East Los Angeles at the Weingart Stadium on the campus of East Los Angeles College.

The East Los Angeles Campus News Reported the following:

Warner Bros. Pictures new untitled Superman/Batman project comes to film at East Los Angeles College Weingart stadium during halftime of the Oct. 19 Husky football game.

ELAC and Victor Valley College will kickoff the game at 6:30 p.m. At halftime, the stadium will transform into Gotham City University home stadium.

Warner Bros. Pictures announced through a press release that Snyder and producers of the film are looking for people in the Los Angeles area, preferably ELAC students, to be extras for the upcoming film.

The stadium will be made into the backdrop for a football game between Gotham City University and rival Metropolis State University.

The first 2,000 people who sit in the filming area of the stadium will receive T-shirts designed by Snyder for those participating in the filming and prizes will be raffled throughout the night.

The crowd will sport Gotham Citys colors, black and gold.

The film will shoot three takes of three plays during halftime. The crew will be capturing the actors and crowd’s reactions.

ELAC’s College event and Venue Coordinator, Ernest Burnett, said that the filming will be about 20 minutes during halftime. The second half of ELAC’s game will follow the film shoot.

Snyder decided to use ELAC’s stadium to support ELAC and the community.

“They could have done this on a night when we didn’t have a home game. They wanted to support the school,” Burnett said.

This is the first sign that they will show Gotham City in the this film. The prior Batman film by Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight Rises also shot in Los Angeles using the LA River under the 6th Street Bridge and around the city of Los Angeles. I am sure that this ELAC game will be the first sell out other than the classic between Garfield High School and Roosevelt High School.
