However, with Iron Man I was sold on the first film and was eagerly anticipating all of Marvel's subsequent films from that point. I think that is how MoS will be. It will be more epic like Iron Man and close to TDK, but better than BB in that regards.
The trailers we've seen of MOS so far have me convinced of the opposite. It looks to me like MOS will be tonally more like BB, i.e. fairly serious and introspective. I hope not as I found BB boring as hell and loved IM, but I do feel that's what we're getting.

Cynicism is not maturity, do not mistake the one for the other. If you truly cannot accept a story where someone does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, that says far more about who you are than these characters. - Greg Rucka

Actually, from what I know, Smallville utilized mostly Vancouver (obviously) and Chicago for its Metropolis. Early on in the show, possibly as early as season 1, they used nighttime aerials of the Chicago Loop as establishing shots for Metropolis. Later, when they started doing daytime composite skylines, Chicago always had a presence. This is most apparent in a shot that debuted in the season 9 finale and saw a lot of use through the end of the show. It's clearly a shot from the North end of the Chicago Loop, looking South, with Metropolis landmarks digitally inserted in place of Chicago ones. I'd prefer they do something like this for MOS. Nolan's ultra-real approach took me out of the films often (in TDK & TDKR) when establishing shots showed explicitly Chicago or Manhattan structures.

Go Forward.
