picLooks like Amy Adams was present on set today in Aurora, Illinois for the filming of Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, the Man Of Steel.

Of course, Adams is playing Lois Lane.

The TribLocal (Chicago Tribune) has since taken down the article, "Amy Adams on the set of Superman, filming in Aurora," but Cosmic Book News got a peak.

Ahmed Helmy, age 16, a student at Waubonsie Valley High School working at the local iHop, signed as an extra and filmed his scene yesterday.

Helmy mentions how he became super enough to land the part.

“Most of my friends knew about the movie already and some even tried out. I was at work when they came in and just asked me if I’d play myself as a waiter,” Ahmed said.

Helmy comments on making the scene and if it lived up to his expectations.

“Well I was surprised that it was kinda’ tiring waiting around so much outside the restaurant while they got the scene just perfect, but once we started filming it was cool,” said Helmy.

So what was his role (and most likely why the article was taken down)? Helmy goes on, informing that Amy Adams was present as Lois Lane.

“I think I’ll be in the film because I walk past her table a couple of times; I’m in the background,” he said.

Ahmed even got a chance to see director Zack Snyder in action.

“He’s a really cool and funny guy. He knows how to get the shot just perfect. I could tell because he would shout cut only after a few minutes,” Ahmed said.

Not to out do his boss, the manager of the restaurant even gets his own scene, as Ahmed informs us.

“Yes, he drives his own car in front of the restaurant,” he said.

Finally, Ahmed is asked if he would like to do it again, and mentions how long his scene took to film.

"Oh yes, I would because it’s a good thing to get in any movie. I also enjoyed the 6 hours I worked,” he said.

Good stuff!

Now you can check out some photos of an iHop sign that is reported to be either flown through by the Man of Steel -- or crashed through!
