The Facebook fan page, http://www.facebook.com/Superman.in.2013 , has given be a heads up to talk to a guy named Gregory Zonsius who stated the following things:

711 is actually wired now and will be blown up. From an alderman in Plano, Sears is going to have a train come barrelling through it, then the facade will be rebuilt and another shot. The styrofoam train is being stored in Sears.


Someone or more than 1 from crew told said Superman, Zod and Faora will be in the big fight also along with the military. This is when Supes learns more about certain powers he has. helicopters where the military repels from will be on 8/25. Tentatively extended filming til 9/2,trailer filming in Plano is monday 1-8. some of this stuff is in comment threads.

Helicopter info. The alderman told me they were looking for a place to land it in Plano and they will be landing in a parking lot a little bit NW of the filming.


I am waiting for confirmation on everything, but as far as I know this is all true.

I can't wait for this movie. Cavill can just stand there and look pretty and I'll be cheering in the audience. ;D
superotherside - 8/13/2011, 1:26 PM
sigh I was really hoping Zod could be saved for the sequel but what ever... maybe they'll have Brainc too...
PaulRom - 8/13/2011, 1:30 PM
Sounds awesome. :D
Viltrumite - 8/13/2011, 1:35 PM
I actually think Zod and Faora are gonig to be trying to help Superman protect himself against the military in this scene. I think they're going to attempt to convert him to their side, as he's one of three surviving Kryptonians alive. I have a feeling Zod is going to mentor him, similar to Ra's al Ghul in Batman Begins.

you know there won't be a trailer or preview for this movie til The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters. I'd be surprised if it was shown sooner then at that movie.

Daniellantern - 8/13/2011, 8:58 PM
Whoa!! There's a lot of action in this movie! Snyder's style. Can't wait for this movie. Kneel before Zod!!
LP4 - 8/13/2011, 9:21 PM
Finally a Superman that KNOWS how to fight.

where the hell is LEX !! ! ! ! ! !

I hope the casting rumor about tomorrow i heard on imdb is true. I wanna see Jimmy get casted already...IF he is in this film. Though I heard they might treat Jimmy Olsen the same way Nolan has treated Robin in his Bat-films.

I sure hope not.
LP4 - 8/13/2011, 10:40 PM
If jimmy doesn't get announced soon, I always have a backup plan-

I'll start an online petition called- "Save the Ginger" lol

And...also...sweater burning scene is a MUST in this movie. hahahaha :P

"Someone or more than 1 from crew told said Superman, Zod and Faora will be in the big fight also along with the military. This is when Supes learns more about certain powers he has."

Please no...
ShadowlordSavage - 8/14/2011, 7:36 AM
@thereverendjonnynemo LoL yeah that was a real WTF moment; however, I doubt it's anything like that, more likely it will be his first time using super breathe or heat vision. I find it to be somewhat odd yet interesting that Supes will still have some powers undeveloped even after donning the the red cape and all.

Can't wait to see the chaos in the movie! 2013 can't be any slower!

oh and...KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!!!
SecretApprentice71 - 8/14/2011, 10:29 AM
How do you post pics!
Superman8 - 8/14/2011, 10:56 AM
@ LP4

is the rumor just that he IS going to be cast, or did they say who is going to be cast as him?
TheLight - 8/14/2011, 12:25 PM
Again, with the "powers" talk. I wonder if Supes will be more "Super" than he's ever been before.
LP4 - 8/14/2011, 1:35 PM
@Superman8- Again, it was just something i heard on IMDB. But IMDB isn't all that...trustworthy if you know what i mean...
Superman8 - 8/14/2011, 2:18 PM
@ LP4

yeah i gotcha..

anyway, i got a jimmy olsen idea that makes a lot of sense to me but i havent heard or seen anybody else w the same idea....Rupert Grint.

yes ron weasley from harry potter. try and tell me ron isnt harry potter's jimmy olsen.

if he could pull of an american accent, i think he def has the look and age that would fit for MOS
LP4 - 8/14/2011, 2:23 PM
@Superman8- VERY exotic idea! He actually fits the bill quite nicely. Right age for an "early days" Superman indeed...plus he's a ginger and he seems like an ordinary kid who gets screwed all the time. Just like Jimmy from the 60's comic series- "Superman's Pal"

Very nice suggestion. Plus he's british to match Cavill hahahaha kidding ;P
LP4 - 8/14/2011, 2:29 PM
In the comics, Jimmy's always been a ginger. But in the movies he's never been portrayed by an actual ginger. The reeve films and the recent one in 2006- Sam Huntington. Even the 50's George Reeves series' Jimmy Olsen wasn't a ginger. Nor was Smallville's Jimmy Olsen.

Let's get an actual ginger this time around- red hair and freckles, come on Snyder make it happen!

You gave us Lois and Perry, time to complete the Daily Planet staff with Jimmy Olsen!!!!



These aren't gingers.






LP4 - 8/14/2011, 2:37 PM
@Superman8- IF Rupert Grint got the Jimmy role he'd be THE MOST Jimmy-looking choice ever made.

Plus he already works for WB on the potter series it just makes sense. With Potter ending soon...it would be a wise career choice for Grint to hope aboard the Superman bandwagon. Going from one huge franchise to another.

This guy SCREAMS Jimmy Olsen.
Superman8 - 8/14/2011, 2:48 PM
@LP4

I'm glad you like the suggestion. I like your break down. It does make sense on multiple levels like you said. I won't hold my breath though. These are the same guys who casted Fishburne as Perry White. I'd love to see comparison of all the different comic/tv/movie versions. It would be very interesting hahaha.
LP4 - 8/14/2011, 3:36 PM
@Superman8- True, fishburne as perry "white" = most random out of place casting ever done.

Still wondering who they might choose for jimmy...LOL

But yeah your suggestion was really great, I loved it. He looks the most like Jimmy i've ever seen.
LP4 - 8/14/2011, 3:37 PM
The one thing i give all those actors credit for though is they all got the hardcore- nerdy aspects of jimmy down PAT!

But dang jimmy is more than just a lovable nerd. I'd love to see some of the more...jimmy physical attributes come into play...

i mean if not the freckles (might be hard to come by) at least get a red-head. ;D
LP4 - 8/14/2011, 3:38 PM
Cool thing with Rubert though as you pointed out- look closely he's got some freckles!!!

With his ginger-hair and he's a great actor WORKING FOR WARNER BROS!!!

Come on WB, cast that guy!!!
Superman8 - 8/14/2011, 4:15 PM
I personally thought Jack Nicholson would have made a great Perry White. He's got that smartass intensity and sarcasm that i like in Perry White.

And yeah i agree w you about Jimmy. He needs to be more than just a dork. Idk if you saw the Superman Doomsday animated movie, but i liked their take on Jimmy in that movie.

And yes, Grint might be the perfect choice.
LP4 - 8/14/2011, 5:42 PM
Yeah...hopefully we get a Jimmy announcement soon. If so, Grint ought to get a shot at it, at least an audition.

Snyder- DON'T [frick] THIS UP

I want to see some Heat Vision goodness!
