Man of Steel: Plano, Illinois Filming Dates

<i>Man of Steel</i>: Plano, Illinois Filming Dates

Welcome to the City of Plano, oops, I mean Smallville

I have been able to get some pretty reliable information from within the City of Plano's municipal offices as to when the filming will take place for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel.

I have it on good authority (via email) that: "we have a street closure schedule, so we are assuming that is filming time. Main St. will be closed August 6 and August 22-29. Sorry that is all of the info I have right now."-6/27/2011

Presumably this will be when Plano becomes Smallville for a short period of time. This also coincides with the previous reports and photos (courtesy of Jake Rapp) of temporary set structures being erected, because they are all on Main Street, downtown. My source on the inside will remain anonymous so that perhaps further updates can be obtained. We have opened up a pretty good dialogue so far. It's amazing what a little polite emailing can do!

So, I think we can officially get excited, folks. With filming set to commence in six short weeks, my only hope is that we get to see Henry in the new Superman Suit soon.

This is epic, though. I can survive six weeks.

I can...

@Ryan- bitchin' holmes. Did you go to the casting call @ the high school?
I went, it was a [frick]ing zoo there. Pretty gnarly though, flat as hell out there- watched the storms roll in last wed...while waiting in the field with like 2,000 people... 1,997 of whom were wearing the "S" shirts. lol

@GDSuperguy- I agree with ya dude. I have loved every single casting decision by Snyder thus far. But if he leaves out the supporting cast from the comics...especially LEX LUTHOR then he's just being a [frick]ing idiot.

Lex is essential to Superman's world. Not only as his arch-nemesis...but damn he is attached to Superman's ORIGIN as well.

Jimmy, Perry, Lex...jesus if those 3 are left out of the film then I don't know WHAT kind of Superman story Snyder is expecting to tell.

There are a lot of places here in Kansas that actually look like Smallvilie. Oh well. Part of the problem is the fact that our state gov. doesn't give tax breaks for movie production.
mastarockafella - 6/27/2011, 9:00 PM
Maybe Snyder is holding up something. I just hope Lex will be casted even just on the background.

For anyone in Chicago area, this isn't too far.

I guess Russel Crowe was spotted numerous times at the Whole Foods in Naperville...
RyanLantern77 - 6/27/2011, 9:12 PM
I talk to you people enough to know that none of you are welcome in my home
RyanLantern77 - 6/27/2011, 9:13 PM
@CrazyRay - No i didn't go :( I had work. Sounds like I missed a real blast though
LP4 - 6/27/2011, 9:16 PM
@mastarockfella- Exactly dude, I'm just asking for a few second cameo [frick]. I mean Lex has never been portrayed properly...this was his chance to finally be taken SERIOUSLY.

MatioShack - 6/27/2011, 10:09 PM
Zack Snyder is hit or miss for me. The thing I like is that the dude knows how to make an ACTION movie. For craps sake Singer, how are you going to make a boring drama about who dude who stars in a series called ACTION COMICS? Frankly, this movie really couldn't be worse than Returns, so bring on Big Blue.

Note to everyone waiting for the picture of Henry Cavill in the Superman suit. Prepare to be disappointed. Just look at what DC is doing in the comics. They've changed Superman's suit into something it was never meant to be and I'm positive that this is in collusion with WB to soften the blow for the fanboys when Cavill's Superman pic finally hits. DC has executed this strategy before when they collaborated with Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman on the whole wedding thing.

@Neph- I'm not doubting the production at all and it has nothing to do with the way I want it to personally be. I'm just stating my opinion that Lex has NEVER been done true justice in any of the films. He's always been portrayed as a GOD DAMN [frick]ING MORON surrounded by even bigger morons.

I'm sorry for cussing but damn I'm tired of the B.S with Lex. He can be sooo much more than what these films have done to him.

I hope you're right and I hope he makes that cameo appearance.

Saving the big villian for the sequel, just as Nolan did with Batman Begins

Hi everyone!

I am new as of well, right now :-). I don't live far from Plano either. Did anyone else apply to be an extra and has anyone ever heard back from the casting people? I am so excited to see this new Superman.
