There is a rumor going around the internet that Batman vs. Superman, the much expected sequel to Man Of Steel, could see the return of the Kent farm.
In the comic book, Clark Kent/Superman’s (Henry Cavill) spaceship crashed into a farm in Kansas, where Martha and Jonathan Kent live, and eventually take in the baby that became their son.
According to these rumors, there is a secret movie project being set up in Yorkville, Illinois, which according to the Man Of Steel Fan Page is one and the same as we saw in Man Of Steel.
The significance of having the Kent farm as part of the sequel to Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman is that the story of the origins of the superhero would continue to be told.
The inclusion of Batman in the mix, who appears alongside Superman for the first time in movie history, has fans and critics confused as to what will be the focus of the new film.
If the Kent farm is part of the sequel, then the story of how Superman grew up in mid-America will be revisited.
Diane Lane, who played Clark’s mom Martha in Man Of Steel, is reprising her role in Batman vs. Superman. This could be an indication that the Kent’s home will indeed feature in the film.
There are reports that a section in Illinois is being blocked off until February of 2014, which is when production is set to begin for the new movie.
But, don’t expect to see the main stars of the film, Henry Cavill, who returns as the daddy of all superheroes, Superman, and Ben Affleck as Batman, who created a firestorm of controversy when his casting was announced by Warner Bros. in September.
They’re both busy finishing their current projects, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Gone Girl, respectively.
Even though the main stars are not yet available for the production, Zack Snyder is not letting that stop him from getting the project moving.
Last weekend, a football game that took place at East Los Angeles College was used as footage for the film.
The fictional teams, Gotham City University and Metropolis State University, went at it for Snyder, who was present directing the scenes.
Batman vs. Superman has a release date of July 17, 2015, and also stars Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Stay tuned for more news.
