‘Superman’ Production Paralyzes Traffic & Businesses: “We Are Guests in Your Neighborhood”

New Superman Suit Reveals Stirs Heated Debate Among the Fans The Downgrade is INSANE

The upcoming ‘Superman’ movie codenamed Genesis, is being filmed in Troup County, serving as a stand-in for Smallville, Kansas. Production is scheduled in the area until June 14th, with the bulk of filming taking place in Atlanta.

The production setup began recently, with pre-production currently underway on Stovall Rd. and equipment stored at the former Whitesville Road Middle School. Casting calls indicate roles for children to be filmed on June 6th according to LaGrange News.

The film, slated for release on July 11, 2025, stars David Corenswet as Clark Kent / Superman, Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, among others. Directed by James Gunn, the movie marks the beginning of a new DC Universe era. Filming commenced in February 2024, making it the first solo Superman movie since 2013’s ‘Man of Steel.’

And while the filming of such an iconic movie will certainly boost the economy and will offer some lucrative tax breaks, not everyone are happy as the production of the movie brought its own set of challenges, notably roadblocks and closure of some businesses.

The filming association has taken responsibility for addressing delays in businesses, ensuring that emergency vehicles are on standby to provide support when needed.

This notice that was sent to locals details how their day-to-day lives and business will be affected in the next week and a half. Even though reactions are mostly positive, there are some locals who don’t see value in high-budget production disrupting their normal lives.

Another “leaked” set video shows a production camp being set up at Headlands Beach State Park in Mentor, the production will result in $44 million in tax credits granted by the state of Ohio.
