And the point people are making is exactly right The conflicts in TDK were much more personal and thus made it a better film. I fully expect them to go down the same path with Superman-Lex. Parasite/Metallo/whoever simply aren't needed. This is Superman in a world closer in nature to ours, let's explore that. A lot of people posting here seem young. 'Yeah we need a big fight between Superman and [insert b-list villain here] in MOS2!'. No, we don't.
The conflicts in TDK were more personal, but the action was different because we weren't dealing with super-powered beings. The most damage we saw Batman do to the Joker was in the interrogation room scene, and Superman can't do anything like that to Lex. I expect MOS2 to be much more personal with Luthor as the main villain, but I also want Metallo and/or Parasite as the side villains hired by Luthor to give Superman a physical threat.
