Man Of Steel Officially Heading To Vancouver Island; Minor Filming Details Revealed!

<i>Man Of Steel</i> Officially Heading To Vancouver Island; Minor Filming Details Revealed!

The Canadian Press has revealed that Zack Snyder's Man of Steel is headed for Vancouver, revealing specific details on the locations they'll be filming at and the type of extras required...

The Canadian Press has released the following information about the Man of Steel filming, which is set to take place later this month until next year. What do you guys think they'll shoot in Vancouver? There's no solid indication in the below excerpts, but it definitely sounds as if we'll see Superman in more locations that just "Smallville" (Kansas) and Metropolis!

"Autumn Frost will film in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island from early September through to the end of January 2012," Rino Pace, locations manager for production company Third Act Productions Inc., wrote in a letter to Ucluelet council.

"We have been preparing the film since early spring, which includes building 'sets' in the various 'stages' in and around the Vancouver area..." Pace said Ucluelet has the "look" the directors and production designer envisioned.

While in Ucluelet, filming will take place on land owned by a local First Nation and on a municipal street, and the town will play the role of a small, Alaskan fishing village. Filming will also take place on the ocean and at an industrial dock.

Already, casting calls for movie extras have taken place in Ucluelet and Nanaimo, B.C. Sought especially were older men and women with "character faces" and some "commercial fishermen types," states advertisements placed on the Vancouver Island North Film Commission website.

"I think this is the first one to really plunk us on the map," said Ucluelet Mayor Eric Russcher, of the filming. He said film crews have normally headed to Tofino, a popular tourist town located about 40 kilometres north of Ucluelet, but the movie company stated it needed something more that looked like an Alaskan community. "We still have that far-flung look of a small community," he said. Russcher said locals are excited and hope to catch a view of some of the filming.

Wendy Stewart, a spokeswoman for the City of Vancouver, said officials are hearing the same rumours that filming could take place in the city but nothing has come through the office yet.

@stranger filming is moving fairly quickly but its not a bad thing. It just means they'll have a year or so in post production to make sure the film is done beyond great! And it will.

@Greengo im at work too, and my 16yr old student is giving me looks from the planet oa. What do I do?! I feel entrapped in my own emotions!

I love Ucluelet - that place has so much character. Can totally see it working as an Alaskan fishing village. Maybe I'll take a trip out that way for some winter surfing and get some pics for those people on here dying to see them

Okay, so is it, just me, or does the, new comic book, version of the, upgraded suit look, just a, tad bit better, than the, live-action version? P :)
