Man of Steel being filmed in plano, some updates...

They have building sets on main street in plano Illinois If I had to guess it is going be 'smallville' but one side of the street has buildings(actual businesses and stuff) while the parking for the amtrak train is right across from it. I am assuming they filling the other side of the road with buildings.

Besides that, their was a casting call at the high school, my adorable 2 year old niece grabbed a lot of attention and apparently they have an appointment set for something, maybe? Anyways the town has a ton of open fields a buildings that can be the kent farm if they wanted to go that route which I think they will since they have sets for a town being made. Filming starts in august/september and the working title is autumn frost for whatever reason.

Also Russel Crowe has been spotted in the local markets the past few days in naperville, il.

Anyways, its cool to see another movie coming to town. The last one that filmed here was for witless protection with larry the cable guy...glad to see we will actually have good film being made here.

Duh right you said that, and I completely skipped over it.

Yes, correct

@LiquidPrince:IMO, after that dumb series finale, I'm glad he is no longer superman, if he can't wear the suit for the finale of a 10 year show then whatever

Besides, we have henry cavil coming to town most likely, which I don't think many people mind :D

@Dany: The series finale was amazing for someone who had been following it on a weekly basis for ten years. It was great, and he did wear the suit. He's pretty much the only Superman I can think of.

No one for superman as he is a worse superhero than Aquaman in my opinion. I prefer non perfect characters to root for.

@LiquidPrince: I saw the entire show and nope, he didn't 'wear' the suit. Green screend shirts, upclose face shots with cape moving in the background and far out CG shots of him flying aren't the same as him wearing some tights. Tom Welling never wanted to wear the suit, based on what I read is that he never wanted to be seen as superman and was never keen on actually wearing tights, even for the god damn finale, ah what a drama queen.

When I think of superman, being only 19, I think of Christopher Reeves, 1st and second movies are classics.

One of my coworkers knows the Superintendent of that school and he's heading up there to hopefully snag some shots of the set/crew.

@Dany: The last shot of the show is him pulling off his shirt revealing the Suit which he was wearing...

Posted by Dany

@LiquidPrince: Welling was wearing a shirt, he never wore the costume. It is all nip-picking anyways, whatever

God, I hope not. The dude has portrayed Clark Kent the exact same way from the beginning to the end of Smallville. I suppose there's something clever to be said of Superman actually being completely one-dimensional and uninteresting so he did his job, and I suppose I just said it.

Russel Crowe in Napper Ville?? That's pretty awesome, me and my girlfriend take trips there all the time for dinner and the river walk.

I just want them to film and get a trailer out, I am very curious as to how this is going to turn out.

@SSully:Might take awhile. I think the movie is set for summer 2012 and they havn't even started filming.

Superman is a boring hero in my opinion as well but he is a beloved icon to a lot of people.

@Dany: Yeah I know sadly. I am just really curious how this is going to turn out, especially with the Snyder's behind it and all.
