March 29, 2011: Military Hardware Needed for Superman Movie

Superman Movie News The Toronto Sun reports that Canada has missed out on hosting the production of the new Superman movie due to a lack of military hardware being available.

    Superman: Man of Steel will be filmed in the Chicago area instead of Alberta, Lindsay Blackett, the province's minister of culture and community spirit confirmed Monday.

    "It was us or them," he said of the film that was one of two feature films worth $100 million and $200 million that had looked to land in Alberta.

    "From what I understand (the production) needed aircraft carriers and the Canadian military doesn't have those.

    "They needed attack helicopters and things like that and we just don't have them and the U.S. was willing to give them whatever they wanted."
