Dark Knight, The - So, Chicago is Gotham??
Ok, so why didn't they choose a city to represent Gotham City that wasn't full of obvious landmarks? You could tell they were in Chicago by the buildings and scenic attractions they filmed...Navy Pier, the Water Tower, Upper and Lower Wacker Drive, Michigan Avenue, a sky shot following the river running downtown through the buildings, the Tribune Building with "Chicago Tribune" clearly written, LaSalle Bank, Merchandise Mart...I could go on for pages! I think they should have either used a lot city they created or an obscure city somewhere that wasn't so recognizable!

I've been debating this idea myself. The odd thing is, both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were shot in Chicago, but Batman Begins showed little to no sign of its "real-life" shooting location as The Dark Knight did. Everything was CGIed and covered up, it looked like a different city, which makes more sense since its supposed to be a fictional setting. So, I don't get it either, but I'll admit, I do love playing the "name that street corner/building/shop/area" game since I live in Chicago and, like you, could list every location that was shot.
