Batman v Superman Movie: Video Shows Set in New Mexico

November 26, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

New aerial footage shows the Batman v Superman set in southwest New Mexico.

Filming is set to start there any day now after it wrapped in Illinois and Michigan.

Filming for this part of the movie was originally slated for Morocco but was reportedly shifted to New Mexico due to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

No one’s quite sure which part of the movie the set will be, but a casting call indicated that it would be an “African village scene” full of families.

That sparked speculation that the village would be Themyscira, home of Wonder Woman and the Amazons.

Another guess is Kahndaq, a city in the Middle East in the midst of a civil war. 

Crews were spotted earlier this month in New Mexico scouting the terrain and posting pictures of the interesting environment there. 

Batman v Superman stars Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman.

The film will also feature Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman.

The movie is slated to hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
