there could be a correlation between that message and the agressive push for flu vaccines over the last couple of years. i however believe it is more related to gas prices??? in that scene will also drives by an abandoned gas station displaying $5 and $6+ per gallon prices for gas.
i remember everyones shock in the cinema when the camera panned to shots of those prices lol. lots of gasps and "wtf's" from the crowd, over the gas prices!!

I bet the Batman V Superman poster in "I Am Legend" was more of an Easter Egg for fans, like they did with Captain 's shield in one of the Ironman movies
interesting theory though. Thanks for sharing
Goldsman's draft, dated June 21, 2002, introduced Bruce Wayne attempting to shake all of the demons in his life after his five-year retirement from crimefighting. Dick Grayson, Alfred Pennyworth, and Commissioner Gordon are all dead. Meanwhile, Clark Kent is down on his luck and in despair after his divorce from Lois Lane. Clark serves as Bruce's best man at his wedding to the beautiful and lovely Elizabeth Miller. After Elizabeth is killed by the Joker at the honeymoon, Bruce is forced to don the Batsuit once more, tangling a plot which involves Lex Luthor, while Clark begins a romance with Lana Lang in Smallville and tries to pull Bruce back. In return, Bruce blames Clark for her death, and the two go against one another. Part of the script took place in Smallville, where Clark goes into exile with Lana Lang. However, Lex Luthor is held to be responsible for the entire plot of Batman and Superman destroying each other. The two decide to team up and stop Luthor. Christian Bale, who was being considered for the lead in Darren Aronofsky's Batman: Year one adaptation at the time, was simultaneously approached by Peterson for the Superman role. Peterson confirmed in a 2010 interview the only other actor he approached for Superman was Josh Hartnett. Warner Bros. canceled development to focus on individual Superman and Batman projects after Abrams submitted another draft for Superman: Flyby. Christopher Nolan would later cast Bale as Batman the following year in Batman Begins. In the opening scene of I Am Legend, a large banner displays the Superman symbol within the Batman symbol in Times Square. It is meant as an in-joke by writer Akiva Goldsman, who wrote scripts for Batman vs. Superman and I Am Legend.

Really? Ignoring the flu vaccine part (get one every year, somehow not a zombie or dead) people actually audibly reacted in a movie theater to gas prices in the movie? Really? Why? Why would that get ANY reaction? Back then there were daily threats of "$6.00 a gallon gas" which never, ever happened.
And I'm paying a nice $1.79 a gallon right now, so.....

Don't forget that movies ARE propaganda. They are designed to sell, as is very clear from the volume of product placements in that movie alone. There is a stark contrasts in merely hearing pundits allege the impending exorbitant fuel prices, and visually seeing it on a physical price chart that all the general public know and recognize in society. Yes people do react to things they see in movies that reference to real world situations.

Hunting deer in a Mustang GT? Ain't gonna happen.
Why didn't he put a round in those fake-ass looking lions?
This character has very poor survival skills.
