I have to admit, since my other post, I've started to become more open to them possibly reusing Lex Luthor as the main threat again. So I'd have to agree with you that from a story perspective, that makes the most sense after the events of MOS.
I can't help but think though that they should include other physical threats in addition to possibly Metallo, like Parasite or Bizzaro, if they could make it work.
