Yesterday saw the new Superman reboot, the Man Of Steel, begin filming in Chicago with Daily Planet scenes at Willis Tower.

A super sleuth posted an update at the Man Of Steel Fan FB (hopefully, we'll get some pics soon).

Via Charlie Allahverdi:

Alright so here's an update. The filming is taking place right now as I write this in the Sears Tower. I confirmed this with two of the security guards and a crew member who was taking food inside of the Tower. Looks like there filming it on lower floors of the building! I didnt get a visual of him,but Kevin Kostner has been spotted several times. I'm heading out because its raining

So it seems as if Pa Kent makes it out of Smallville - alive! 

Looks like Zack Snyder is keeping to his word that this is going to be different than the Donner classics, as Pa Kent passed before Clark went on to Metropolis, I believe.

However, from the Plano, Illinois set, we did see a couple Kent family tomb stones - with "Jonathan Kent" being one. In addition, a funeral scene was set to be filmed, as well.

Could be the death of Pa Kent could occur after Clark heads to Metropolis, as it has been stated in our early script spoilers that Zod finds Smallville by locking onto Kal-El's ship, which is buried in a field. If true, certainly sounds like Zack Snyder will be bouncing back and forth between Smallville and Metropolis.

Stay tuned to Cosmic Book News as more on the Man Of Steel develops.

Man Of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder starring, Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod, and Russel Crowe as Jor-El.
