Man of Steel 2 will begin shooting on Oct. 19 at East Los Angeles College despite neither of its two stars being available.

The college's newspaper released an article this week revealing that the Batman-Superman movie would be filming a scene at their football stadium this weekend. The scene will be filmed during the halftime portion of a real life game scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

"At halftime, the stadium will transform into Gotham City University home stadium," the college newspaper revealed. At this point, Man of Steel 2 director Zack Snyder and company will film a scene of a football game between Gotham City University and their rivals Metropolis State University.

Fans in the crowd will be wearing the Gotham City colors black and gold. The crew will be shooting audience reactions as well as three plays made during the fictional football game.

Since both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill (Batman and Superman, respectively) are busy filming different movies until the end of the year, it is assumed that neither actor will be present for the shoot.

The football scene may be an interesting follow-up to the events of The Dark Knight Rises, in which Bane (Tom Hardy) and his band of criminals disrupt a football game in Gotham. Gotham City is playing Metropolis in the scene being filmed Saturday, which is Superman's home city.

Man of Steel 2 is scheduled to be released on July 17, 2015. Much of the filming will be done in early 2014 when both Affleck and Cavill are available.
