A good way for Metropolis to become the city of tomorrow. With Superman helping with the rebuilding, I hope.
The leaked Lego set also had a Superman Metropolis Showdown. But I always suspected they would film the biggest scenes for Metropolis on studio premises.
Yeah I remember that one too. Yet people were still insisting that it was going to be like Thor and the big showdown would happen in a small town setting and be really anti climactic.

Too bad no one took a shot of Cavill running into an alleyway and ripping open his shirt.
'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
