Weingart Stadium at East Los Angeles College will be transformed into the Gotham City University home stadium, during halftime of the school's game against Victor Valley College on Saturday, October 19, which starts at 6:30 PM. The first 2,000 fans who sit in the stadium's filming area will receive t-shirts designed by Zack Snyder. There will also be prizes raffled off throughout the night. The filming will last approximately 20 minutes, with the second half of the real football game to follow.
The production will shoot three different takes of three football plays during the fictional game between Gotham City University and their rivals, Metropolis State University, with the cameras capturing the crowd's reactions along with the play on the field. It isn't known if either Henry Cavill's Superman or Ben Affleck's Batman will be in attendance to support their hometown teams.
Here's what ELAC's event and venue coordinator Ernest Burnett had to say in a statement.
We reported in August that production will begin in Detroit and other Michigan locations in the first quarter of 2014.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice comes to theaters May 6th, 2016 and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.
