Awesome, cool, and fun sounds like a nice combo. I wish Superman can be in the situation in which he can relax in the sequel. HOWEVER, I feel like Superman's overall demeanor was appropriate for the situations he was in.
You can't have Superman smiling when he realizes that Kryptonians are surrounding the town of Smallville, combined with the possible inner regret at leading them there.
But multiple scenes like the first flying scene in MOS are in order.
