In a word, no.

The script may have sucked, and alot of Supes villians deserve screen time, but the whole Kryptonian invasion of Earth thing in Abrams script excited me. Flying kryptonians against human planes armed with kryptonite laced missiles could be cool. Just make it a better story.

You could even use daxamites.

I'm not against bringing back Zod and giving him a posse of thugs at some point in the franchise / trilogy, but I do not want any BS about New Krypton or Supergirl, Superdog, Supercat, Superhorse, Superchimp, Superhamster, SuperWTF. For all intents and purposes the status quo of the new franchise is that Superman is Krypton's last son, and by the end of a Zod movie it should be that way as well (in other words, Zod and his goons gets offed in some way).

I don't mind the idea of Brainiac being of Kryptonian origin, either. In fact, I quite like it, so technically he could be considered a survivor of Krypton (but like Zod he'd be dead by the end of his movie).

I kind of like the idea of Krypton as a dystopia. Krypton's perfection always felt rather cold to me.

I think a dystopian Krypton would be a great way to differentiate the new franchise from the Donner films.



I think it would ring more true with audiences as well, since we'd be seeing a civilization that has reached the end of the line in all ways imaginable, not just geologically. It was too late to save Krypton, so Jor-El decided his son's best chance was to live on Earth, since it's "not too late for the Earthlings." That would be a stark contrast to the Donner films, where it's "oh look at us, we are so perfect, and now we're going to share some of our perfection with the earth people because they're good and can be perfect too!" Rather than depicting Krypton as a promise of what perfection humanity can achieve, it would be more of a warning as to where we could fall.

would be a strange take to go with. But i agree it would be a great way to step away from donner's take.

Only thing is they sent clark to earth to save his life not to share perfection with Earth. Earth was a perfect suitor for clark because they shared the same features. Plus I dont think the world should look like its at the end of its line, the main story i want the movie to be is about Brainiac and its reluctance to warn Krypton of its impeding doom. Their planet shouldnt be affected by their sun exploding until it explodes so it shouldnt look like the planet is dieing from pollution and what not. I would rather have it look like a more advanced earth. Either one tho is better than the Ice Krypton the old movies gave us.

dont think it would be very hard to depart from Donner's take. He turned Krypton into Antarctica for some reason and he also never even introduced Brainiac or why superman's civilization didn't even try to leave Krypton before it was destroyed. IMO its pretty easy to create something better than what Donner did, his origin was really lacking.

I still think Krypton should look like a much more advanced Earth

Though, I doubt he'd ever do a comic film.
Ya would have been better than Shannon. Of course no Zod would have been ideal
