The Daily Planet - Superman News and Speculation Thread (🚨SPOILERS🚨)

I think its gonna have a feel of the 30's and 40's, but with lots of modern vibes also.
I think it will feel ( and look ) similar to superman the animated series.
On a side note, I really hope metropolis itself looks bigger than NYC when we see the skyline shots.
( and yes, I know we saw metropolis in the background of the suit reveal, but we don't know if that will actually be what the city looks like )
 
The Leader Building Management supposedly said filming is Monday and Tuesday. A worker at Ohio City Burrito which is now The Wounded Duck next to the Leader Building also said filming is Monday and Tuesday. The casting call from a few weeks ago were looking for military, police officers, firefighters and EMT workers for Monday June 24. It looks like everything is pointed to Monday.
 
Can’t wait to find out later that James Gunn had cutting edge technology manufactured to prevent any and all cameras from capturing photographic content during this shoot on location
 
DC Film News Twitter is saying "Today might be the day". Whether it's today, Saturday or Monday, we're close. Just seeing the props, the shop windows, and the Daily Planet design has been fun.

They clarified the post is unrelated to the film. Partner is about to give birth 😅
 
I said this this to someone on Facebook, but you can tell who has and hasn't been inside of a modern newsroom- or working in one in my case. Newsrooms nowadays are pretty sterile and dull. It's not The Newsroom or even Supergirl with everyone running around or staring intently from the control room while reporters smoke while yelling at sources. Usually it's people just glued to their computers and only getting up for lunch or when there's free food available. :D It's one of the things I enjoyed about the Nolan Batman films and DCEU films- because those locations felt like actual places instead of solely going for something more fantastical. Heck, even Superman and Lois' Daily Planet looks no different from your average newsroom exterior.

It's like...that's just how newsrooms look nowadays! So the DCU looking a bit more fantastical is a nice change of pace, but what we got before felt more emblematic of what you'd expect places like that to actually look like, whereas here it's like looking into a comic. Both work.
There is no point to having it if you are going to do it realistic. No one wants to see what it actually looks like inside of a newsroom...if they did they would either work there or watch a documentary. There has to be some action or it is just a pointless thing to have.

He has that thing from the Dark Knight Rises that shuts down all the lights...because he is Batman ;)
