This weekend saw shooting for the new Superman reboot, the Man Of Steel, wrap up in Plano, Illinois.

Filming now moves on to Chicago for a reported ten day shoot beginning on September 7th.

Locals managed to piece together where the Daily Planet will be located: at the Chicago Board of Trade Building, with the crew setting up at Monroe and Lower Wacker.

Update: The Board Of Trade Building will serve as exterior, with Willis Tower as interior for the Daily Planet.

The Chicago Trade Building was also the location for "Wayne Enterprises" in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, and the building also appeared in The Dark Knight. Nolan is a producer on the Man Of Steel.

Here are a couple shots of the Trade Building to get an idea:
