I'd heard Gotham = NYC and Metropolis is Chicago or midwest.

That's what I used to think as well.  But either that's been retconned, or we were mistaken.

What's more confusing is that Metropolis was clearly NYC in the Donner films.

It does make more sense for Metropolis to be on the east coast, but just a supervillain toss away from Gotham City?

And  that map says Metropolis has 70,000 people? That's not large enough for a major metropolitan newspaper or well, major anything.

See there, if these DC movies are so awful, why are a-list actors signing on board?

Oh, right, money.

Now Morgan Freeman needs to jump ship to Marvel...as The Watcher (FAN BOYS LOSE IT).

If Metropolis was supposed to be in Delaware, they clearly screwed up, since Wilmington, DE would make a much better Gotham considering the immense crime rate and general look of the city.  Superman would have cleaned it up by now, but they could clearly use Batman.
