Man of Steel is now currently shooting in Chicago, IL!

Zack Snyder's Superman movie Man of Steel has moved down the road from Plano, Illinois to Chicago, where the production will start shooting today for the next 10 days through September 17. After that, the production will head to Vancouver for the rest of the shoot.

Chicago Business reports that the Chicago Board of Trade building (previously used for Wayne Tower in Batman Begins) will be used as The Daily Planet in the movie, while Willis Tower in the city will serve as the newspaper's interiors.
I'll be super-stalking the production for the next week and a half!
Wonder if Nolan has warned Snyder about you...

On a serious note, I'm surprised they're not concerned about Metropolis looking too much like Gotham.

Now, it makes sense!

As much sense that most idiots have a Hard-on insisting that the trunks are underwear....
Perhaps this will help, because that's all that image is really.

Trunks, underwear... whatever you want to call them, they're outdated.

Visual effects companies MPC and Double Negative will work on Man of Steel.

MPC and Double Negative have worked on Christopher Nolan's last three movies, plus the last five Harry Potter movies. Plus lots of other movies like X-Men: First Class, Paul and Prince of Persia.

Synder- Okay everyone. You all have a photo of the person to be on the lookout for. He is to be restrained on site by order of the Nolan.






Looks perfect. Just CGI a globe on top

Metropolis being in Chicago always seemed to fit for me, Chicago is such a classy, architectually modern and beautiful town that it seems perfect for Superman.

New York is much more Batman.

Well Shannon confirmed that he is indeed wearing a mocap suit as Zod. Still not sure if it's for some kind of battle armor, or maybe an energy suit like we saw in GL...

Or who knows, maybe he'll be all huge and roided out like Hulk.

So he won't be wearing his Kryptonian bathrobe anymore?

This pic makes me think how cool it would be to see a period piece Superman. This could be set anytime between the '30s and the '50s.

Returns almost was a period piece. They blended 50s with today. I like that a lot.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

After the shoot is done in Chicago they're be coming here to Vancouver to finish principal. Although most of the shoot is interiors (meaning inside a studios) so I might not be able to see much.
