Default Re: Can Metallo character work in a Superman movie ??

(that is assuming Darkseid is reserved for a JL film)
I can't see them using either Doomsday or Bizarro.

With Doomsday, it'd be a weird choice of villain after all the complaints about the senseless destruction and too much action.

With Bizarro, i'm just not sure it'd be a particularly good villain to translate onto the big screen. It's similar with Mxysptlk. If you try and bring them to the big screen and 'modernise' (translation: make them less silly), then they've sort of lost the point.

I'd say Brainiac really SHOULD be saved for a potential third film. I think it's pretty much given that Darkseid will be the villain in a Justice League film, but Brainiac seems like a great way to bring it back to his Kryptonian roots and round it out like a trilogy.

So really, I think Metallo or Parasite are two of the most obvious choices for potential fight scenes, and Lex/Intergang in the background giving the story a bit more weight.

Superman: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana. humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
Flash: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
Superman: "To catch them if they fall."
