     As pre-production begins for some of the other planned shorts, including Black Friday, the crew went out into a far recess of the Lego Studios backlot to film the Johnny Thunder 2 teaser. "We had to film as far away from the studio's front lot as possible," said gaffer Sam Reynolds. "Otherwise, the tabloids would let everyone know where the film will take place. This is a detail that we have to keep secret until the teaser comes out in early June, and the same goes for the title."
     However, Steven Lawrence, director of the first Johnny Thunder film, said that the footage in the teaser will not appear in the final film. When reporters at the Lego Times (formerly called the Brick Street Journal) asked why he was doing this, Steven replied, "I wanted this footage to give the audience a general idea of what to expect in the film. I don't expect to start filming until this August, since certain materials needed for the film won't be available until then (author's note: In other words, certain Lego sets needed for the film, like City Corner, won't be coming out until then. The set details for the City Corner can be found at this link:
     Around the debut of the teaser, the studio will also release The Adventures of Legoman Production Gallery and Studio Tour. Filming for the other short films will be done next week.
