Yesterday afternoon, September 15th, 2011 the Granite City Police responded to a Robbery, at which time it was learned a 76 year old male was robbed of Jewelry and money while in the 1800 block of Delmar, Granite City, IL. The victim was going to hire a male subject to clean up a vacant business in this block, when the subject forced the male’s jewelry and money from him. During this incident the victim received some minor injuries. Based on his description, we learned the Madison Police Department was dealing with our suspect on an unrelated incident. Officers were able to link this subject to the robbery and he was transferred from Madison’s custody to our custody. With the ongoing investigation of the Residential Burglary, it was believed this was the same subject responsible for stealing the Superman items in August. Investigators were able to link the suspect to this crime as well and recover all of the victim’s Superman memorabilia and return it to the owner. Today, both cases were presented to the Madison County States Attorney at which time the suspect was charged with: 1 count Residential Burglary 1 count Robbery 1 Aggravated Battery (Senior Citizen)
Photographer Ed Larom has taken photos of what appear to be Michael Shannon as Zod, sporting a black suit almost identical to the design we recently saw Henry Cavill wearing! We also see what facial hair he'll have!
OnLocationVactions.com (again) has received more exclusive images from a photographer known as Rob of the "Man of Steel" set in Chicago, IL. The photos show actor Henry Cavill dressed as Clark Kent taking a "bike ride" through the downtown Chicago area which is doubling for Metropolis in the Superman reboot:
Filming for "Man of Steel" taking place this week in Chicago. Third Act Pictures is preparing the area for some upcoming filming with the full cooperation of the Mayor's Office, The Illinois Film Office, The Chicago Film Office and the Chicago Police Department.
The City has issued street parking permits for their production vehicles. For this reason there will be NO PARKING on the following streets:

Producers on the movie may be forced into a radical rethink of their leading man’s look after a deluge of comments about his “package”.
Cavil has been snapped in a redesigned Superman suit which doesn’t includes the characters cape and tights but not his red pants.
“The pictures of Henry on the Man of Steel shoot have certainly created a buzz about the movie but it’s a little off target,” reveals a movie insider.
“All everyone’s talking about his Superman’s crotch and those missing pants. The new look was supposed to create new interest in a classic character but the way things are going Superman may be forced to get his pants back on. It’s either that or Man of Steel could be the first R rated Superman movie!”
Henry recently revealed how he has endured nightmarish workout regimes in order to get into shape as the Man of Steal.
“The physical training has been extensive and exhausting,” says Henry, 28, who also had to pump iron for new movie Immortals.
“I think I was doing 9 to 5, at one stage, with the training. You certainly learn a lot, when you go through that process. When you’re training and you get to that rep which is difficult, and you know you’ve got 10 more reps to go in that one set, and another five sets after that, and you say, ‘I don’t really have to do this. I can do something else.
“If I just put the weights down and have a bit more rest, it will be fine.’ It teaches you how to negotiate and win the negotiation. As my new trainer says, ‘It doesn’t have to be fun to be fun!’”
No Flights, No Tights – Where have I heard that before?
The new "Action Comics" – on sale digitally and in comic book shops Sept. 7 – and tells a very modern version of how a young, blue jeans-wearing Superman first shows up around 2005 in a modern yet dilapidated Metropolis, Morrison said.
Well… the legendary series starts over for the first time, and Morrison said he found the task of writing a new "Action Comics #1" "daunting." But he compared the era of Superman's first appearance in the 1930s to the current day, justifying the hero's reintroduction.
"A lot of people were losing their jobs and losing their livelihood [in the 1930s], and a lot of people were realizing there was corruption in high places," Morrison said. "I think we're at that time again."
