I like the idea of non-extra terrestrial threats for the sequel. Kinda seems like the natural obvious way to go, instead of just more aliens. Let the threat come from within this time. Let Superman go up against a human foe and also somewhat humanity itself. Of course that foe would be Lex aided by the Intergang fueling the Superman-doubters of humanity. It would be less of a visual feast than what MOS looks to be. The action would be more intimate, but would leave room for Supes to be more of a strategist and "employ" Clark Kent the reporter on a larger scale maybe.
Including Lex would also leave the opportunity to introduce kryptonite, which cant be left out of a full-blown Superman-reboot. Either Lex ultimately builds his own mecha-suit or Metallo could be used, since the movie would still need a big battle-sequence at some point.
And also, a Brainiac-presence should cast a shadow throughout the entire movie.
That could create a more tense thriller'esque style of a movie, like TDK was compared to BB.
