The fake football teams playing a fake football game get into a fake fight, too
It’s not clear what the beef is between Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent in Warner Bros. upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel, but footage from Saturday’s shoot at East Los Angeles College suggests the heroes’ respective cities don’t like each other too much, either.
Gotham City University hosted Metropolis State University for a college football game, during which the home team started punching the vistors when a play didn’t go their way.
Scenes from the fake game were shot during halftime at the ELAC Huskys match against Victor Valley College. Extras were brought in to cheer for Gotham and boo Metropolis, while ELAC students were also allowed to watch Zack Snyder direct the sequence.
The video (above), captured by a spectator, shows Gotham sacking Metropolis’ quarterback before he threw a touchdown pass to his teammate in another play. GCU fans were not happy, and neither was the team.
Neither Ben Affleck or Henry Cavill were present to root for their team during the quick shoot, so it’s unlikely that this game is the start of their characters’ feud.
A second video (below), however, notes that a production representative on set told the crowd participants that the scene would be used in the beginning of the film.
