If they wanted to really save Brainiac for a third film (which I wouldn't be up for personally at the moment)..then they could always go with this scenario:

MOS would introduce villains in the form of Zod and Faora to show the worst that Krypton had to offer, and the sequel would show the worst that Earth had to offer in the evil deeds and acts that came from Lex's actions.

Hell, throw in the suicide squad, or superman revenge team; essentially earth based villains, or a group that's comparable to Spider-Man's Sinister 6 Line up...and have them all try to take down Superman under Lex's orders....


Oh and..





haha

Superman revenge squad from the Last Son story arc would be fairly awesome to see in a sequel, it also ties into Zod.

Lex can definitely be more threatening in a sequel, especially if they choose to base the third film on All-Star Superman....

Kinda new again to the MoS boards, but as an icebreaker let me just get the noob thing out of the way and say that the potential of Zod in this one is huge. I hope he's not just the equivalent of the alien invasion in Birthright or Earth One, but is actually an integral link to the past and Krypton (both of which I hope to see in a considerable capacity in MoS).

I wonder what the Zod/Jor-El fight scene will be like? I hope they flesh out the rivalry between the two.

I assume it's not gonna be a super fight, as it'll be on Krypton, right?

Yeah, at least according to Russell Crowe. I think it was meant to take place during the war scene that supposedly takes place at the beginning.

Then he proceeds to force a kryptonite dagger into Zod's throat.

So, MoS is a short film?

It's 20 minutes of Russell Crowe fightin' round the universe.

Slapping non-Kryptonians and Kryptonians alike!

This is the genius of a Nolan/Goyer Superman story.

He's the backbone of the story. And the twist: "Kneel before Jor-El!"

I can't blame you. But in all seriousness, I hope they don't make Jor and Zod enemies from the get go. I don't need them to be like bros, but I wouldn't want something that'd basically be a rehash of StM only with an actual battle thrown in.

Agreed; heck I'm curious on whether they'll take the route of Zod trying to manipulate Clark/Superman upon their first encounter or if they'll immediately be hostile to each other like in the previous films.

I have no real evidence, but I think it's going to be the former, if anything. Although my ideal scenario would be for them to start out as friends, a la Optimus and Sentinel in TF3, but obviously written much better. That will depend on how lost/evil Zod will be since Krypton.
If they go for misunderstood albeit extremist Zod (my ideal scenario), then my suggestion would fit rather nicely.
If they go for fully evil Zod, then it's gonna be like StM/SII.
If they go extremist and stern, then it's gotta be the manipulative Zod towards Kal-El.

I liked the modern origin in the comics that (And this will get me beheaded for saying) Richard Donner came up with; that when Zod planned to overthrow the council he wanted Jor-El to be his partner in creating a better world.

I wouldn't mind that, either, as long as the characterization isn't the same in MoS. Which I'm certain it won't be.

And the interesting thing about that version is that the Council was actually somewhat corrupt, even going as far as lobotomizing a scientist who spoke out against them.

Non, right? I still wasn't satisfied with how Zod turned to Jor (a bit abrupt), but it's a good "origin" to draw inspiration from.

Really it's all about taking the core ideas and utilizing them in the right way.

Exactly. Because it's an origin and because I sense they're gonna focus on Clark/Supes A LOT, I guess zod will become a public enemy on Krypton, but will keep a low profile on Earth at first, trying to use Kal-El. It's deep enough and easy enough to explain at the same time. So it's serviceable. If they wanted to focus more on Zod (not more than on Kal-El), however, the misunderstood extremist Zod who gets hurt both on Krypton and on Earth would be great.

And by misunderstood I don't mean innocent. Just not someone whose mind is set on world domination.
