Flashback perhaps? Making use of digital models of Chicago?

If it was a flashback, I think they would use old footage. This may be like "Re-visiting" an old area or just be the location of the new movie.

Who knows?

Didn't the people of Chicago respond negatively to seeing their city reduced to rubble in DotM? I remember reading that. I'm surprised they gave the go ahead for it to happen again.

If they're staying there for four months to shoot I'd wager most of the movie is taking place there.

Guess it makes sense, considering they totally destroyed the city in the last movie. Someone has to rebuild it! Lol

Well they could just be shooting there for some kind of tax break, they can make it any city they want in post production. I've no basis for this so it's just conjecture.

More than likely they'll use Chicago as some other city or various other cities. Films do it often to save on location filming.
