While shooting continues in The Windy City, Chicago native Mike Eisenberg took to Twitter to confirm that IMAX cameras were in use for the pivotal scene, as well as outlining some troubles production was having in regards to adapting them to the colder weather.

It’s no secret that comic book fans are some of the most diehard, detail-addicted aficionados of any creative artform. So, in this day and age of practically zero secrecy surrounding movie shoots, why the persistence by said fans in spoiling Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?
Now, granted, there’s a hefty bunch of interested parties who have no inclination whatsoever in capturing shaky hand-held footage of a film shoot that they can post online to boost their social (network) status. However, there are an even more determined few whose sole mission this year has been to snag a ton of photos and videos from Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero caper. Many of which are guaranteed to spoil a significant chunk of the film, including this latest batch of media to hit the web.
Let’s take this massive spoiler straight from the source; a Chicagoan who »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has moved from Detroit to Chicago to do a final month’s filming before post production. Last night the set of the film was getting ready to shoot the Wayne’s murder scene, which is an iconic moment from the Batman story. It has now been revealed that this scene was shot in IMAX.
Twitter user Mike Eisenberg, who is a Chicago local and runs a production company, was near the set last night and tweeted about it. He first said “Lots of people waiting in cold to watch scene film, but it looked like the IMAX cameras were not handling the cold well. Could be a while.”
He then confirmed that they were using IMAX cameras to shoot the iconic scene: “I can confirm with my own eyes that Batman v Superman is filming at least the Wayne murder scene with full IMAX film cameras. »

If you don't want to know which iconic moment from the DC comic books was filmed yesterday on the Chicago set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice using IMAX cameras, stop reading now! The rest of this story does contain spoilers...
Last month, photos from the Michigan set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice showed off the Wayne Family mausoleum, located at the Orion Oaks County Park in Lake Orion, Michigan. There, a number of vintage cars were spotted, and it was believed to be a flashback to Bruce Wayne's parents' funeral. Ben Affleck was later spotted on a Smallville funeral set, so it's possible that this modern day moment in the film triggers a flashback to the death of Bruce's mom and dad.
New photos from the Chicago set surfaced yesterday revealing an iconic Gotham location, showing off the movie theater where Bruce's parents are murdered. These »
We recently just got word that just one sequence in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was shot using IMAX cameras, and it turns out another big blockbuster might be using the giant film stock under the radar as well. SlashFilm noticed a tweet from Mike Eisenberg, a Chicago man who owns and operates his own production company, saying, "I can confirm with my own eyes that Batman vs Superman is filming at least the Wayne murder scene with full IMAX film cameras." Now the internet is full of lies, but this seems to be a legitimate observation on the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as Before the Trailer corroborated the claim and Batman News also said the same. So just what were they shooting in Chicago? This particular sequence in question was reportedly the iconic comic book scene where Bruce Wayne's parents are killed. So it »

Batman-News have spotted a couple of Tweets from Chicago's own Mike Eisenberg, and they seemingly confirm that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is being shot at least partially in IMAX. If nothing else, the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents is being filmed using them and you have to imagine that a number of other scenes will be as well. Based on what we know about the highly anticipated 2016 movie, not All of it is being filmed with these cameras, similar to The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises from Christopher Nolan. The site also reveals - via their sources - that Martha Wayne's pearls (which fall to the ground during the shooting) are set to be added by CGI. Lots of people waiting in cold to watch scene film, but it looked like the IMAX cameras were not handling the cold well. Could be a while. — Mike Eisenberg »
"Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day." So what does it all mean? Cooper, Amelia, Tars, Murph – what was Christopher Nolan trying to tell us? With Nolan's new sci-fi Interstellar now playing in theaters (here's our Sound Off) I decided to hop on a podcast with my friend Mike Eisenberg of Tall Tale Productions (known as @Eisentower30 on Twitter), a fellow Nolan nerd (his dog is even named Nolan!), to discuss the movie in-depth. We wanted to talk about all the spoilers, theories, Nolan's big ideas, the science fiction of it and compared notes on what we experienced. So here's a podcast-length recording of our Skype discussion on Interstellar, and don't forget this has spoilers! Enjoy.
