Batman v. Superman is shaping up to be an absolutely huge movie given that it has Zack Snyder behind the camera and at least a good five or so superheroes in it. So naturally, Snyder and crew are building at least one big set to go along with all of that. Albuquerque's KOAT caught them at work on a set out in the desert around Deming, New Mexico. It's not totally clear what the structure is just yet, but it looks like it encompasses a number of large buildings and potentially some guard towers forming a town, settlement, or fortress. You'll find out just how destroyed it all gets on March 25th, 2016.
