June 27, 2011: Possible Smallville Location Sets for "Man of Steel"

Superman fan Jake Rapp drove to Chicago this past weekend to attend the Casting Call for Extras being held for "Man of Steel", and while he was there, he drove around the town of Plano where he discovered temporary sets being erected for what is suspected to be the location of scenes set in Smallville.

    Jake said that he drove around a bit just getting a feel for the town. He decided to stop and ask a police officer if he had any info about filming. The officer reported that there were some temporary structures being built in town that were to be used for the Man of Steel filming. He also explained that the site for the Kent farm had not been revealed, but suggested that it would be close to town. The officer also said that they had all been informed that their town would only be featured in about fifteen minutes of the film.

    Jake had a Plano resident confirm what he had been told about the buildings and filming. Below are what could be the first possible set pics from Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel. Jake reported that there was security present, so he couldn't get too close. These are pics from his cell phone.
