One would think so, but a lot of MOS was a disappointment, despite the volume and all the disaster porn.

Also, Marvel had a ton of second unit people filming NYC stock footage for weeks. That way when it was digitally recreated for the battle scene the composites were based fresh real world aesthetics.

Personally I found 90% of the final battle in MOS unwatchable. It was a video game blur of random building #10 falling against random building #14. That's a problem with conception, not execution. Whoever creates Metropolis needs to spend some time in New York or Chicago and map the city out similarly so it looks inhabited. If you want your audience to become familiar with and eventually care about a fictitious city you're putting on screen it has to *feel* real. Give it landmarks and character that's memorable, and spend some time glossing over it all. Hell, I remember details about Vice City more than I do this version of Metropolis.

Joss Whedon's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is the cinematic equivalent of Tony Stark building an Iron Man suit in a cave with a bunch of scraps
