Production on Zack Snyder‘s Superman/Batman movie isn’t set to get underway until early next year, but they will be doing a bit of filming this weekend to take advantage of the crowd that will be at the East Los Angeles College Weingart Stadium.  The stadium and the crowd will be used at the backdrop for a game between Gotham City University and Metropolis State University.  Gotham City will be the home team, and the crowd will be sporting GCU’s black-and-gold colors.  I assume they’re playing at the Gotham stadium because Metropolis doesn’t have much of a city anymore let alone a sports venue.

Hit the jump for more.  The untitled Man of Steel sequel stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Lawrence Fishburne.  The film is set to open on July 17, 2015.

The crew will be capturing the actors and crowd’s reactions.”  Filming is scheduled to take about 20 minutes.  Also, “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.”  I’m pretty sure one of the prizes is that you get to say you were an extra in one of the biggest movies of 2015.

As for why the production chose to shoot at ELAC, the College’s event and Venue Coordinator, Ernest Burnett, tells the Campus News:

“Our visibility among the film community is higher than a lot of schools and I have to give a lot of credit. The experiences of the people that have come and shot here are very good. Because students know the deal now, like they notice the production truck and then move on to class, it’s more common.”

If you’re at the game and snap any cool photos, please send them our way.  Obviously, we’ll give you and your awesome Instagram/Twitter/Tumblr/Flickr account its due credit.
