Superman Carries Lois Lane In New Batman v Superman Footage

After doing a great deal of shooting up in Michigan, the production of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has moved to the streets of Chicago - and thanks to that move we now have a local news featuring Henry Cavill's Superman in action:

With the Zack Snyder-directed film shooting in the Windy City this weekend, the team over at Fox 32 was able to capture some video footage from the set - including part of a sequence where Superman (in full costume) picks up Amy Adams' Lois Lane and cradles her in his arms. The context of the scene is unclear - it's worth noting that Lois didn't look injured or disheveled in any way - but what is kind of strange is that the actress' outfit is exactly the same as one of the one's she wore in Man of Steel. For comparison, here is Amy Adams in the last Superman movie:

And here she is screencapped in the news footage:

There exists the possibility that this could be some kind of flashback, but part of me hopes it's not. I like the idea that Lois Lane is too busy hunting down stories to go shopping all the time, requiring her to repeat outfits once in a while. It would be a nice little realism detail, and one that we don't see too often in movie franchises.

We first learned that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would be moving its production from Michigan to Chicago this past September, though this news report makes it sound like they're not going to be around all that long. This isn't incredibly shocking given how long the film has actually been shooting, with production beginning all the way back at the start of summer. There is still a ton of time between now and when the film actually hits theaters, but we can presume that the year 2015 will be dedicated to post-production. Then again, we still don't know what's going on out in the New Mexico desert.

Batman v Superman, which also stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Ray Fisher, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, and Jeremy Irons, will be in theaters on March 25, 2016.
