While Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice’s director Zack Snyder had originally planned on filming some scenes in Africa, the Ebola outbreak in West African countries has forced the production to reconsider those planned locations. Now those scenes will be filmed in New Mexico and the local news channel 7, KOAT News has the big scoop. Let’s go to our roving reporter on the scene Marvin Olsen (Step brother to Jimmy Olsen) already in the field. Wait.. This post’s director is telling me in my ear piece that we don’t have a roving reporter and that I’m not wearing an earpiece. I’m guessing it’s time to take my medication.
Confession time. I love to watch local news cover Comic Conventions, Cosplay, and Comic Book Movie news. There’s just something about watching people try to bubbly explain things when they really don’t have a clue about what’s going on past the teleprompter. Consider it a hobby of mine, but you can really tell when occasionally you find a local reporter that really knows their stuff and isn’t just asking questions they came up with after a three-minute scan of whatever subject they are talking about’s Wiki page.
Here’s some screen caps from the report:
Looks like this set might be Themyscira, the city of the Amazons although it could be Atlantis just as easily with today’s technology. Which would you rather see? Filming is scheduled to begin as soon as next move in November. With the announcement yesterday by Warner Bros. that there will be a stand alone movie for Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in 2017 and Aquaman (Jason Momoa) in 2018 this production site might get more use in the future.
The last major film to be shot in the area was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Here’s one of those Local News moments I was talking about before. Watch the video below and see if I am on track or just need some more medication.
There’s still plenty of waiting until the March 25th, 2016 release date.
