Late last week it came out that Zack Synder and company would be filming a few of their first scenes from the upcoming Man of Steel: Batman Boogaloo during the halftime of a football game. Both a description of what took place and a video have been uploaded to the Internet for us all to scrutinize over.

Batman News posted this description of the filming shortly after it took place:

It started with Warner Bros. telling the crowd that they were going to be in Batman vs.Superman. Yes, a Warner Bros. representative referred to the movie as Batman vs. Superman. That’s still not the official title, but it’s one that keeps coming up. Warner Bros. also announced that this would be the opening of the movie. Then two scenes were filmed. Both plays were from around Gotham city’s 30 yard line. The first play was a tackle for a Metropolis loss. The second was for a touchdown pass to the corner of the end zone for Metropolis. Then the bench cleared for Gotham and they had to break up a fight on the field. Gotham never even went on offense.

And now watch the filming thanks to SadPuppyProducitons:

Since this video is still live on YouTube, Warner Bros understands that this scene in no way reveals too much about the plot of the story, and couldn’t the movie use a little more buzz anyway?

I find it interesting that, even though, the official title hasn’t been officially announced Batman vs Superman you here the production person at the end refer to it as Batman vs Superman. I’m fine with them not revealing an official title for however long they feel like, but since it has been officially billed as the Man of Steel sequel, why isn’t Superman getting the first billing? Warner Bros and Zack Synder might have given in to the overarching power that Batman posses in the media right now.

    You mean Batman is getting first billing…

    I’m curious though, why do you think it’s meaningful which hero is named first? I’m not trying to be facetious, I’m curious if there’s any theory behind this.

    For me I think about it this way: it’s not just a Superman sequel, It’s also the continuation of Batman on the big screen post-Nolan. Batman has also grossed more money for the studio, so it does make sense in that way.

    In boxing, the challenger is traditionally listed before the champion, so with this being a Superman film, it seems natural for him to get the “champion” billing.
