    Metropolis consists of Chicago and Vancouver exteriors I believe, mostly Chicago. I wouldn't be surprised if Snyder goes for a "timeless" look for the city.

    Certainly, there are buildings from both real-world cities that wouldn't look out of place in Metropolis.

    Congratulations, Greg! Sounds like a great gig. I won't ask if you work only from a script or if you get to see the film.

    As a president once said "It depends what the meaning of the word 'is' is."

    I was halfway through Smallville on DVD when this question occurred to me. I googled and found this explanation, but reflected eye-beams seems way too conveluted IMO.

    A little later, I saw Hancock lather up his face and rake down it with his fingernails to shave, I thought, "That's it!" - a far simpler solution.

    But then... how do they do their nails??

    ^ I suppose they chew them. But that would really suck when it's time to do toenails.
