Kent Farm Being Reconstructed For BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN


batman superman bannerThere are strange lights in the sky over a small, Midwestern farm, but this time it’s not an alien vessel. Last week Jake Lester posted a story saying Batman vs. Superman may be filming in Yorkville, Illinois at the location that served as Kent Farm in Man of Steel. There were some industrial lights and the like were spotted in the area, which led locals to believe Zack Snyder‘s crew was back prepping the area after filming a few scenes in Los Angeles for a football game between Metropolis State University and Gotham City University. Well this evening some new details about Kent Farm have been uncovered by our friends at the Man of Steel Fan Page.

The Man of Steel Fan Page posted an update on their Facebook page about the supposed filming. They have found out that construction for the set will “begin in about a month-ish’s time” on location. The film’s Kent Farm was disassembled after production wrapped on the first film, so they have to rebuild it from the ground up. The barn is still there and the rest of the area has been flagged off. As far as how long the crew will be there and what stars may be filming in the area when construction is finished, the page says:

Filming will occur a couple of months down the road following construction start up. Filming isn’t expected to be long- only a few days. As for cast that will be present: Diane Lane’s and Henry Cavill’s names were mentioned.

They said they’ll keep snooping around, but security is pretty tight around the farm right now. Filming for the highly anticipated sequel doesn’t begin in earnest until February, but Snyder and company are shooting a few smalls scenes as well as prepping locations. Hopefully we’ll see and hear more about the film in the coming months. We’ll all keep our fingers crossed for the first pic of Ben Affleck‘s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman together, but at least we get a few tidbits about filming to help make the wait more bearable. What do you think about Kent Farm gearing back up for visitors?
