The Daily Planet is revealed on the set of Man of Steel
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Just like THE AVENGERS, we’ve been getting more and more set photos from Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL. Today a really important piece of Superman mythos was discovered on the set.
What you will see below my writing is a photo of the Daily Planet globe. For the Superman newcomers in the room, the Daily Planet is where Clark Kent works alongside Lois Lane. So in Synder’s film, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams will be working together under Laurence Fishburne who plays Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Planet. White definitely isn’t as hardcore as the Daily Bugle’s J. Jonah Jameson but he’s still an important character.
The exterior of the Daily Planet is Chicago’s Board of Trade building. That same building was also used Wayne Enterprises in THE DARK KNIGHT. It’s an interesting tidbit since MAN OF STEEL is supposed to rival the structure of Christopher Nolan’s BATMAN movies.
