Update: @wastefulthinker provided Cosmic Book News the following info:

It was fairly quick. I filled out the application, they took a photo, and that was it. They told everyone that you won't hear back for around a month or so. I was part of the early crowd. By the time I left? SO PACKED nobody could move. There weren't much specifics other than the majority of extras will be used for Downtown Chicago shots. Some for Plano, IL.
