Default Re: METROPOLIS-The City's "Portrayal"

Well if you watch the Comic Con trailer (if you can still find it), we get a few glimpses of Metropolis. More specifically, we get a glimpse of 2 buildings for about 2 seconds when (presumably) Zod and Superman are flying towards each other at one point in the trailer. Both buildings kinda looked stylized in that one scene and not like your average skyscraper.

It doesn't necessarily have to be too high tech - just a bit more futuristic than the average American city. I don't see how that would be a problem or it would be unrealistic since there already are cities that look a bit more futuristic than the average American city. Take Dubai and Singapore for example.
