The East Los Angeles College Weingart stadium will be a backdrop for a fictional football game between Gotham City University and Metropolis State University.
Principal production on "Man of Steel 2" is expected to begin this weekend with the filming of a football game scene. According to East Los Angeles College Campus News, the scene will be filmed during the school's real Husky football game at the Weingart stadium on October 19.
At the halftime, the stadium will be transformed into Gotham City University home stadium. It is set up as a showdown between the Gotham City University and its rival Metropolis State University, while in reality, it's a face-off between East Los Angeles College and Victor Valley College.
Filmmakers are looking for extras, preferably ELAC students for the scene. They are asked to wear outfits with black and gold colors to cheer on the fictional team of the Gotham City. The first 2,000 people who sit in the filming area of the stadium will receive T-shirts designed by director Zack Snyder.
It's unclear if the main actors, Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck who play the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight respectively, will show up for the filming. But sources claim it's unlikely to happen because they are reportedly not scheduled to film any of their scenes until early next year.
The sequel to "Man of Steel" released this summer will pick up where the first film left off and chart the first encounter between the titular superhero and the caped crusader. It is due to hit theaters across the country on July 17, 2015.
