There is a 15 foot statue of Superman erected in front of a government building last week on the set of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”. While most geeks and movie enthusiasts were scratching their heads to grasp the meaning of this, batman-news.com set out to find the answers. It seems the statue was build to celebrate Superman saving the Earth in the first movie.
The site also mentioned the following about the events that took place on set:
“Gotham and Metropolis news trucks and helicopters were on the scene to cover the Mayor’s speech and the statue unveiling. Elementary school kids wore “Superman Survivors” shirts and helped pull a sheet off the statue for the big reveal. They also released real doves to celebrate statue unveiling. The Superman statue that we saw last week was incomplete — he was missing a head and other various body parts. That didn’t change when they filmed the scene for the movie. I’m told that the statue will be completed in post-production with CGI.”
