Merchandise seen in this episode:
The Kent Farm House was reconstructed over a year ago, awaiting the return of film crews, who spent all of three days at the location, before moving on.
Thanks to Jeff Frost for the above photos and video.
However, the crew is already busy setting up in downtown Chicago, with film trucks parked in Loop next to the Willis Tower. Inside the building the Daily Planet globe is being put together in the lobby, with security telling office workers from the building that filming will take place tonight. Elsewhere a Metropolis train is pulling in to (or out of) the station.
Convergence comprises a nine-part weekly comic book series that begins on April 1 with issue #0 and ends with issue #8 on May 27, as well as 40 brand-new 2-part mini-series to be published throughout April and May.
The main series will be written by TV writer Jeff King and Dan Jurgens and drawn by Carlo Pagulayan, Stephen Segovia and Ethan Van Sciver. The creative teams for the 40 titles will be announced in the near future.
Soboroff purchased the typewriter from Siegel's daughter, Laura Siegel Larson. "The reason I finally decided to part with the typewriter was to allow the public to begin enjoying it during his 100th birthday year," Larson told Soboroff. "It is my way of sharing something very personal that belonged to him with people who love and respect him, his work, and his legacy." The 27 machines in Soboroff's collection will be displayed in a Los Angeles museum exhibition to be announced soon.
In "LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham", the Caped Crusader joins forces with the super heroes of the DC Comics universe and blasts off to outer space to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth. Using the power of the Lantern Rings, Brainiac shrinks worlds to add to his twisted collection of miniature cities from across the universe. Now the greatest super heroes and the most cunning villains must unite and journey to different Lantern Worlds to collect the Lantern Rings and stop Brainiac before it's too late.
"LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham", the ultimate super hero game for the entire family, launches November 26th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PS Vita, Wii U, 3DS and PC.

"The first scene we filmed was with Jeremy Irons", he says. "It was out in a field with young Bruce Wayne. A flashback to the Wayne funeral. The small set was really cool with the hearse vehicles sporting Gotham license plates."
This was the location with the Wayne family mausoleum and a few graves near it which we saw photos of late last month.
"The second scene I was involved in was situated in a half-stadium style set surrounded by tall green screen walls. Henry Cavill was on set dressed as Clark Kent, but did not film with us that day." He continues, "This scene was a parade scene to take place in "Washington D.C.", obviously the CG effects for the surroundings would be placed in post production."
Now for the major spoiler of this report...
"The parade, we were told, was the funeral for the President of the United States."
"I wish I had more pics but our phones were checked in before filming and we didn't get them back until the end of the day."
"It was really fun to be part of a giant, massive piece of machinery, headed up by Zack Snyder, who is thoroughly at home in that uber mega environment," she said. "Most people would have a nervous breakdown with that kind of pressure, and he's enthralled."
Zack asked me. He came to me with an offer, and I was like, "Yeah, that would be fun." It's fun to mix it up.
Can you tell us anything about Superman? Or Batman?
I have scenes with Superman. He looks phenomenal. And to see Ben [Affleck, who plays Batman] and Henry [Cavill, who plays Superman] together is quite formidable. They are massive hunks of masculinity.
Can you tell me anything more?
No, of course not. I don't want anything to happen to my kids.
Also check out an interview with Scott Snyder by Yahoo! News...
Coming into it and taking a different angle I realized his life is terrifying but he's very brave. He has the strongest moral compass of anybody out there and not a compass that makes any sense to anyone but him. If he does something he thinks is right, if he thinks he knows what's right, he will do that thing, even if everybody else thinks it's the worst idea in the world.
Meanwhile, another new filming permit for the production has been issued for November 8-9 to take place at 126 W Jackson, with full road closures of Clark & LaSalle Streets in downtown Chicago.
Thanks again to Jeff Frost for the photos and video.

A few days later, when the film was released to the public, I also went along to the first midnight screening in New York, and when the movie finished, nobody moved. Everyone sat around anticipating a post-credit scene... Staff of the theater had to come to the front of the cinema screen and shout out to everyone, "There's no post-credit scene! It's finished. Please exit."
It has been revealed that Christopher Nolan was the one who made the decision not to include a post-credits sequence in "Man of Steel". In a profile piece for The Guardian ahead of the release of his new film "Interstellar", Nolan reveals that he doesn't like post-credit scenes because "a real movie wouldn't do that."

UPDATE: Christopher Nolan has†disputed†the Guardian's report. By way of clarification, the filmmaker released the following statement: "I would never say someone else's film isn't 'a real film.' The quote is inaccurate." - EW.com
SS: Yeah. Very much so. Honestly what "Superman Unchained" does, and what' I'm most proud of about the entire series, is that it really argues Superman down a core explanation. And for me at least, it's a personal explanation of what I love about Superman. The criticism he gets - that he always does the right thing, he's just a boy scout, he's outdated. How he's just singular in his decisions and he never, ever questions what he's doing and he's goody two shoes. All that kind of stuff that people say when they're trying to make Superman feel anachronistic or, you know, from another time. To me it couldn't be further from the truth.
When you write Clark, what you realize is he's a guy who's making it up as he goes along. He's not someone who's sure of himself or thinks that he knows the right answers. He's not out there to be a symbol for us. He's basically a guy who grew up in Kansas with the weight of the world on his shoulders, trying to do the right thing case by case. In that way, I think he's actually a tremendous inspiration or he should be, because he's anything but singular or monolithic in terms of what he stands for. I think he'd be the first to say "I don't stand for anything. I'm not trying to show people how to live their lives. I'm just trying to do the right thing with trial and error each time." And that's sort of what the entire story is really about. The accusation made against him by Wraith, the other alien who that's been working for the government forever and is much stronger than Superman, is that Superman doesn't do the tough things. That Superman doesn't change the world to do this, this and this because he's afraid.
And the truth is Superman doesn't do those things, but not because he's afraid. He doesn't go to countries and reshape their politics. He just feels he'd be overstepping. And all of choices he does make are as a man trying to light his own way. To do things that he can be proud of and allow him to sleep well at night.
