The Batman-powered Man of Steel sequel isn’t hitting theaters until 2015, and essentially everything about the movie besides the presence of Ben Affleck is shrouded in mystery. Last week, however, we learned that the movie would apparently feature a football game, since director Zack Snyder took his crew to film a showdown between Gotham City University and Metropolis State University. Video has emerged of the filming. There’s no Henry Cavill, no Affleck, definitely no Cranston-ized Lex Luthor, and indeed no indication that this scene will last longer than maybe 20 seconds in the movie.
Still, the member of the crew directing the crowd does offer some tantalizing hints. “The first play, you guys are all really happy about. The second play is gonna be all at that end, and you’re gonna hate it.” So we know it’s not a blowout, even though Gotham was heavily-favored in my fantasy football league. (That’s what fantasy football is, right?)
