Superman: Man Of Steel moves to Chicago

Word on the ground: filming starts tomorrow

Superman may have flapped his cape and flown away from Plano, Illinois but Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel has landed not too far away in Chicago. 
A local ABC7 news team has already visited the set (see footage below). 
However, according to eyewitnesses filming didn't take place today as the channel reported it would earlier in the morning. 
“I talked to one of the crew guys, who said they're setting everything up tonight and tomorrow to start filming tomorrow for sure,” user Charlie Allahverdi told the unofficial Superman: Man Of Steel Facebook fan group
He also confirmed there were “no celebs yet” on the set.  
Filming takes place in the Windy City for the next 10 days, then it's off to Vancouver to complete the shoot. 
The Chicago Board of Trade building will apparently make its second superhero movie appearance, doubling as the external view of the Daily Planet. It  previously appeared as Wayne Tower in Batman Begins
Superman: Man Of Steel opens June 2013.

Can't wait for this year of superhero filming to be over so you can enjoy the fruits of the studios' labours? Tell us below which upcoming spandex-clad hero you'll be cheering loudest for in 2012 and 2013!

      Note to ABC7: Parked Trucks are not news, they are TRUCKS. Unless they turn into big FO robots and start trashing downtown Chicago, then maybe its worth sending reporters out.
