Default Re: Who should be the villain in the sequel for Man of Steel?

Lex is a necessity, but there needs to be a second villain and for me the two most convincing options are Metallo or Brainiac. Which of those two is your preference roughly corresponds to how big of a role you think Luthor should have in the sequel.

John Corben as Metallo would be a tool developed by Lex, thereby painting Lex as the primary villain. But with Brainiac, he's such a powerful villain that Lex can seem relatively helpless in comparison.

I think Brainiac would be too similar to the alien invasion plot of MOS, so Metallo is starting to seem like a good choice. So yeah, TANK's suggestion paralleling the format of the Dark Knight trilogy format is a great idea and I'm basically in total agreement at this point.
