November 14, 2014: "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" Shot in IMAXPrint

Dawn of Justice Variety reports that a spokeswoman for Warner Bros. has confirmed that Zack Snyder is filming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" with IMAX cameras.

    News that the superhero matchup would use the cameras first bubbled up on Twitter after a user observed the filmmakers as they shot scenes in Chicago.

    Snyder's “Man of Steel” showed in Imax, but didn't use the Imax cameras, so this marks the director's first time shooting in the format.

    And so an era comes to a close!

    A new addition to Clark's family as heavily pregnant Chloe finally gives birth.

    Lois and Clark share some much needed and much missed time together as comic book history's first couple. The scene with Lois parachuting away was a skillful yet quiet hint at what Lois was before the New 52 ruined her character. I'm also glad Clark finally after so long embraced the moniker we all know and love - Superman!

    It's all coming together and this chapter offers endings that are palatable and new beginnings that fill one with excitement. Tess has her body back, a love interest and the Watchtower which was a fitting new era for her. Ollie has a new team that I never saw coming to be honest, though with his early introduction being an allegory for Batman I guess it makes sense that he would lead the Outsiders - though it might have been nice to introduce who each of them was for those not familiar. The big finale with Lex was just pure brilliance. Is Lex really a good guy now, Otis' death has certainly made its mark on him and perhaps this will be something that tempers his dark side. I said perhaps because I can't be alone thinking, 'Are his first steps in the White House leading to bigger things?' Almost certainly. The ambiguity of his ending fills the reader with excitement.

November 12, 2014: "Batman v Superman" - Cavill Leaves Chicago - Flashback Scene FilmingPrint

It appears as though filming at the Daily Planet location in Chicago for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has wrapped, with the Daily Planet signs having been dismantled today. Reports are that Henry Cavill is flying out of Chicago this evening.

Meanwhile, at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, production crew were seen preparing for tonight's shoot, which will apperently take place between 7.00pm and 6.00am, with the theater billboard changed to advertise the upcoming release of the movie "Excalibur" (which was historically released in 1981). The arrival of cars dating back to that era has fans speculating about the possibility of a flashback sequence being filmed there tonight.

November 12, 2014: Premature Baby Survives After Being Named KalelPrint

Baby Kalel The parents of a baby born 17 weeks premature were considering switching off their son's ventilator when the baby made a miraculous recovery within a day of being named after Superman.

    Mum Kaye Latham, 35, went into labour at just 23 weeks and was terrified when doctors warned her there was a 50 per cent chance her baby son wouldn't survive.

    Her little fighter then took a turn for the worse and medics told Kaye and fiance Scott to consider turning off his ventilator.

    But the superhero fans begged for a few more days with their baby and had him christened 'Kalel' - Superman's 'real' name on the planet Krypton before he crashed to earth.

    Overnight their poorly baby defied doctors to drastically improve and within days he was off his ventilator.

    Now the little fighter is six months old and finally at home, but his astounded family still can't believe their little hero is alive and well.

You can watch a video with little Kalel and his mother as she discusses his traumatic entry into the world.
