    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.

    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.

    Oh I get the joke but I disagree of your opinion on it.

    Who says you?....not to me. ;)

    The way I feel about this production just CGI the "Daily Star" logo on top of there.

    My first day stalking the set! I am pretty sure I spotted Laurence Fishburne! :D

    The Sears Tower, where they are filming the Daily Planet interiors. I spotted an old-timey taxi and some cameras. Unfortunately, I tried to take pictures, but security shooed me away.

    The Board of Trade, where are they shooting the exteriors of the Daily Planet. FWIW: The Board of Trade also stood in for Wayne Tower in Batman Begins and was visible during the convoy chase in The Dark Knight when they flipped the Joker semi-truck on LaSalle.

    Base camp in Chicago on Van Buren.

    I managed to snag a photo of some of the costumes.

    Signage which reads the codename title of the film.

    Is there something else we should be calling it?

    Nope. Can't hear you, sorry.

    It's the Sears Tower. Always has been, always will be.

    I should have put a "Good for you" or "That's awesome" after that comment.

    So, we've gone from fearing changes to the trunks to fearing changes to the name of the building at 233 S. Wacker Drive?

    ...In the interest of fairness, I'll admit that had to look up what it's called now. :p

    I actually like all four variations on the Man of Steel suit at this point. They all make the Returns suit look like a Halloween costume you'd find at Toys R Us.

    ETA: Oops, I'm four pages behind with this comment!

    I think the photoshopped haircut looks kinda emo-ish.
