October 4, 2016: Kent Farmhouse Demolished

161003-farmhousedemolished2The Kent Farmhouse has been demolished.

Workmen moved in over the weekend, demolished the building, leaving a pile of rubble.

Jess, a local fan, tells the Superman Homepage that there is still security monitoring the location 24/7.

It’s unknown whether the house was destroyed for a scene in the upcoming “Justice League” movie, or whether the house is simply no longer required. We’ll have to wait and see…

Thanks to Jim Martens for the photos.

Hmmm…seems like if there’s going to actually be a Man of Steel 2, this might be a little premature.

The farm was taken down after MOS (prior to the premiere but even as sequels were being produced) and rebuilt for BvS too. It’s cheaper, safer, and easier to take down and rebuild (often under a week) than it is to maintain plywood structure not built-to-code (land owner might not like it, non-functional and subject to wear and tear, invites trespassers and liabilities, subject to taxes and regulations, etc).

It’s amazing how sets are being built for certain scenes and when they are no longer required they either blow them up in smoke or taken apart. The fun part is always the blow-away part nevertheless.

I had actually forgotten about the Kent Farmhouse. I knew Henry’s Supes would be back in JL, but I heard no word about Diane Lane returning…

Diane is billed in the cast on IMDB. I couldn’t imagine her not being in for his return scene.

These houses are meant to be temporary. The safe thing to do is to tear it down. The last thing you want is some over eager fan getting hurt on a set piece that is falling apart
