The latest in regards to filming for Batman Vs. Superman reveals LexCorps Industries will be involved in a scene, and it's also being speculated that Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder are shifting production away from Africa to avoid the Ebola virus.
Filming is taking place at the Broad Art Museum this week in East Lansing, Michigan where Twitter users spotted LexCorps Industries trucks as well as production crew swamping the area. Specifics are not known about the scene as Zack Snyder has been erecting barricades to keep the paparazzi out.
Regarding the Ebola virus, as many know the Ebola virus is presently killing thousands in Africa, and has even made its way to Texas. Various fan sites are speculating that Warner Bros. is now going to film in New Mexico instead of Morocco.
The evidence comes from a casting call listed on the New Mexico Film Office web site as well as confirmation via Instagram from an apparent Batman Vs. Superman crew member. It's unknown if the Ebola outbreak is the direct cause of the New Mexico shoot, or if filming was already planned there.
