The scenes are most likely being shot early to take advantage of the football season. However, the film is technically still in pre-production. Currently Ben Affleck (Batman) and Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) are shooting films and therefore are not yet available to start filming the upcoming sequel.
Additionally, casting is still being assembled with major roles not yet cast. Amy Adams ("The Master," "American Hustle"), Diane Lane ("Hollywoodland," "Unfaithful") and Laurence Fishburne ("The Matrix") will reprise their roles from "Man of Steel."
Zack Snyder ("300," "Watchmen") will direct the film from a script written by David Goyer ("The Dark Knight"). Charles Roven ("The Dark Knight") and Deborah Snyder ("Man of Steel") are slated to produce, with Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas as executive producers. Warner Bros. will release the film on July 17, 2015.
Warner Bros. has enjoyed a box office success with recent releases "Gravity" and "Prisoners" and is gearing up for the awards season. The studio will next release Spike Jonze's "Her," which recently premiered at the New York Film Festival to critical acclaim and stars Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara. The studio will also release "Grudge Match," which stars Robert de Niro and Sylvester Stallone. The company's final film of the year will be "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug."
