The start date for filming is creeping up, and so far only Henry Cavill has been officially announced for a role. With filming set to begin in October, this leaves little time for the cast and crew to prepare. Fans have been waiting on the edge of their seat for more updates, anticipating announcements to occur in the course of the next few weeks.

Here is what you might have missed in the meantime:

Lauren Hissrich keeps followers informed through her Instagram.

Henry Cavill is in Hungary, preparing for the role.

Before he left, he said goodbye to his own loyal steed, taking a ride on his Ducati. While he may trade in a mechanical Roch for the real thing, we are sure to see his trusty dog named Kal-El by his side during filming.
