Re: Who should be the villain in the sequel for Man of Steel?
I think it's hard to say until we see this film.
I mean, if MOS is exploring A LOT of the sci-fi aspects like some rumours are leading us to believe (alien ships), then Brainiac is a logic second villain IMO (and I'd hope that Lex would be in the mix too, because he should be in all Superman stories).
But if their going for a more Nolanesque type story I'd expect something more along the lines of Intergang/Lex trying to create technology that could fight against Superman (and other aliens, since their experience with Zod and Faora). I.e. Metallo/Parasite.
I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.
"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
