Being an extra is a great fun and a wonderful experience. It gives you the opportunity to mingle with famous people and gain experience in the industry by seeing how everything works. But whether it involves a local commercial or lands you on the silver-screen there is a level of professionalism that is demanded as one extra found out. On the set of the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice one extra discovered some confidential information and is now facing some serious financial consequences. After divulging some key plot information to a local news station, WILX-10 in Lansing, MI, Warner Bros. studios has seen fit to suit the extra to the tune of $5 million.
It is my personal opinion that this is a bit of a hefty fine to dole out to “Mr. Joe Extra.” But it does go to show you how serious that the studio takes the secrecy of the plot of their upcoming films. It’s easy to find out what the extra had to say about the upcoming summer blockbuster and, at least to me, it doesn’t seem to be that big of a deal. There isn’t a whole lot of the plot divulged and possibly one character exposed, but that is it. Hardly $5 million worth of information.
Still this shows how serious that the studios are to secure their story lines and secrets. And goes to show you how they expect a level of professionalism from EVERYONE on set.

Fox’s ‘Gotham’ is spin-off of sorts to the DC Universe’s Batman series. The show takes a unique look at the city of Gotham after the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents and prior to arrival of Batman. The series allows writers to give a little back story on some of the characters, mainly the villains, which were left mostly unclear from the years of comics. The main character is Det. James Gordon, played by Ben McKenzie (Southland), and is centered on his adventures in the underground crime world of the city.
