He's been done to death over the past 30-40 years. He needs a break.
Superman has other enemies that need some screen time.
The most I'd be ok with is if Lex was the behind-the-scenes puppet master villain. Like if the next film had Metallo as the main baddie, Lex should be the hidden wiizard behind the curtain, you know?
Imagine if Joker had been done as often as Lex... I think we'd all be sick of him by now. I'm surprised more people aren't sick of Lex. He's a great character when done right, mind you. I just... I want to see Braniac, or Doomsday, or Darkseid, or Parasite or Metallo. Not more Lex. Not as the main baddie, anyway.
Believe me a lot of fans are sick of him and a lot of fans are happy that Lex probably isn't in Man of Steel at all. I'm fine with him being in sequels but I don't ever think that he should be the sole villain in sequels because I like physical matches in my Superhero movies.
