Exactly. I think Keyser Soze is referring to the GAP/roof missing in one of the buildings. Tornado or Zod/Sups/Military damage for sure.

Personally I'm much more interested in ZOD's attire! I cannot WAIT to see what Sups will be up against! BadAZZ we can be assured, but man this is the costume I am most stoked about other then Cavills!

I hadn't heard about tornado damage. That makes sense I guess. My recession theory came from Nolan and Goyer have been talking about having this great idea for getting back to the core of the character. And Superman was originally in the historical context of the Depression in the 1930s.

I've generaly stayed clear of the shooting thread. Been more focused on the Dark Knight Rises shooting. But conversation over there has gotten so depressing that I decided to try coming over here a bit more.

The new photos are great! I guess the scenes they were filming take place in modern day since there's Superman iconography all over Smallville. Or at the very least they're filming both flashbacks and modern day scenes...

I figured the Superman iconography on store fronts was just photos from the town where they're shooting rather than stuff from the actual set. Over in Pittsburgh, local shop windows are covered in Batman merchandise to celebrate the film being in town.

Here's what I've found on it.... http://www.batavia.lib.il.us/



I'm in Joliet IL (27 miles South of Chicago) only 40 min away from Plano IL, I am hoping to head down there (Plano) this weekend, but still living in IL my whole life never heard of Batavia Library.

On Twitter, Russell was talking about biking as exercise while on location, maybe he has been biking around the Illinois suburbs. It certainly looks like it.

They built an entire town on Smallville my friend, an entire city block built just for this movie. Please go back to other threads and look at what is happening within Plano IL, it's really mind boggling to see what they have created just for this movie.

Are they done building in Plano?
I hope they post before-and-after shots at some point, because the change does look kinda crazy.

So, what exactly are we seeing here? A tornado that affects Smallville and Lois Lane is reporting from the scene of the destruction or does it seem like it is Clark Kent growing up? If its Clark in the university and Lois Lane is visiting and meets him, that would probably make sense. After all, she is supposed to be an established reporter by the time that he starts working at the Daily Planet? Or could she be filming a completely unrelated scene that takes place in Metropolis but they are just using the 7-11 as if it were a 7-11 located in Metropolis? Anyone know what the rest of the set looks like close to that 7-11?

I expect a zod pic to be released anyday now...there is supposed to be a confrontation between he, the military, and superman in smallville ( if i'm not mistaken) so I think snyder will want to release an official pic of him before a fan snaps one.

I think there's a mixture of modern day Smallville and young Clark Smallville. In the early days we see a tornado, later on Zod and/or the military will battle with Superman in Smallville. It's not certain though.

The 7-11 looks to be part of the Smallville set. What Lois is doing there is uncertain. Even her scenes are conflicting because it was reported they were filming for the teaser that day, but then the guy who took the video said Amy was shooting for a scene in the movie. But she could be involved in the modern Smallville scenes.

Anyway, here are the areas around the 7-11, which show the other Smallville stores:
