I would say Brainiac and/or Mettallo.

You're a fool with bad grammar. Why exactly would they have to make another character into the Parasite? What possible reasoning do you have for that?

I don't want Zod to appear in a sequel or to be hinted at in this movie, though I would love for many other villains to be set up in this movie (that doesn't necessarily mean that they're going to show up as villains in sequels afterall. Just show their alternate ID's, ala Dr. Connors in Spider-man 2). Show Hank Henshaw (the Cyborg Superman) as the pilot of the space shuttle that Superman saves, show Alex Trent (Bloodsport), John Corben (Metallo), Rudy Jones (the Parasite), Kitty Faulkner (Rampage), Dr. Killgrave, whoever.

The ending of Superman Returns shouldn't have the USUAL cliffhanger ending, like in all other superhero movies! A villain should definitly be hinted at through out the movie, but not at the very end, like in all others.. RETURNS should end with the beautiful shot of Supes flying in space and looking into the camera smiling just as he flies past.. RETURNS should end with an epic feel.. the world has gotten back their savior! It should be a good satisfying ending. When you're walking out of that theater you should be thinking of what an amazing film you've just seen, not speculate over who might be the villain in the 3 YEARS AWAY SEQUEL!...

Well George Lucas has a lack of vision nowadays. Superman could easily be described as a 'nutty convoluted' character too but through the process of developing this motion picture; he becomes real.

This is how I'd handle the story. No intergang or manheim, just like SR the storyline can be reinvented and tweaked to work on its own.

http://www.superherohype.com/forums/...7&postcount=16

I'd say Darkseid is a pretty central and popular Superman villian. Hes also one of the most challenging and twisted foes Superman has ever faced. Hes an actual match for Superman in battle too as his Omega Rays could potentially do serious damage to Supes. I could really see Michael Clarke Duncan playing him (he has the voice) and bringing the character to life.

The new god story can work. The animated series introduced them over the span of a 2part episode remember? They basically just gave a vague backstory to the New Genesis/Apololips conflict.

3 movies at most? Ridiculous. Im confident there will be way more beyond a trilogy if SR is successful. The same with Batman Begins....both could last for several movies and I think Routh and Bale would be ready to do them if the scripts are good.

Hmmm Parasites in the video game too so I dont know if he'll be a strong villian to use.

They shouldnt tie Brainiac with Krypton, STAS did it to make Brainiac into a composite character with Eradicator. I'd say they should do an adaption of the classic Vril Dox story.

you have to undertsand I'm a New gods whore and I feel they deserve their own movie.

It doesnt matter if a villain is in a video game, in fact that will probably make people want to see those villains in the movies even more.

I have strong feeling Metallo will be set up for the sequel, and Brainiac for the third (Though he should just be called Vril Dox as IMO Brainiac would be al aughable name to the general public)

And if there is a fourth then I'd love to see Mongul

The only problem with the character already appearing in the SR video game is you already see a storyline featuring him and see Brandon Routh's Superman defeating him.. It takes away alot from the movie if hes the lead villian.

We also see Metallo's mecha-type giant robot in the game too. I dont think Spiderman ever used any of it's extra villians they put into the video games for the movies.

Not that I wouldnt mind Metallo, but it would be pretty boring to me if Ive already faced him off in the game. Brainiac seems the best choice.

For some reason, if Singer has creative control for future films, I could see him using Bizzaro ...humanizing the character and making him into some King Kong type that the audience develops sympathy for.

So if they put Darkseid in the game you wouldnt want him in the movie?

Ya I dont see that happening. Superman is probably the best outlet to deal with them or at least introduce them.

Off topic here, I dont even think a Green Arrow movie would fly right away (given the similarities to Batman) so they best way to deal with him is to introduce Oliver Queen (before becoming GA) in the GL movie. If his character is popular with the audience, then they'll know that a GA movie would fly featuring him.

I think Darkseid would be a very popular villian if used. I mean the entire DCAU ended in a final battle between him and Superman. Theyre pretty intergrated to each other from a public prespective. His interactions with Luthor were pretty priceless too.

Exactly. I wouldnt. But I think they were smart enough not to, they didnt really use any major powerhouse villians in this game....Metallo, Parasite, Cadmus Creatures etc Almost seems like the usage of characters not strong enough to support an entire movie based around them.

If you want the game to be any fun, those characters, should be in the game AND a movie, imagine seeing a live action fight of what you did in the game, the appearance in a game will increase the villains profile and make people want those characters in a film. Also IMO a Lex and Metallo working together is easily strong enough to supprt a film

Um the characters of the second movie will obviously appear in the game for the second movie...

Were still dealing with the game for the first movie.

more than the charcters that apear in this film will be in the game, and it seems like you dont want any game to have good villains coz then that would ruin future movies to you, which makes no sense to me

Erg no listen. The major villians should appear first in the movie and then in the subsequent game associated with that movie. All the secondary villians in the games should be ones not intended for usage in the films.

I wouldnt mind Metallo appearing in the game for the sequel if hes IN the second film....but appearing in the first, way before the sequel, kinda takes alot of the excitement out of seeing how he would appear in the sequel movie for me.

I remember that, but don't remember any during production. Unless my Richard White theory comes true.

Braniac is the obvious choice. Metallo is a side-villain at best.
This will NEVER happen. But I'd love to see:
(second movie) Luthor is dealing with an alien dictator (Darkseid? Mongul?) to ensure that he (the alien) can take over the earth, letting Luthor rule as a "puppet-king". The alien is far away, and in the meantime Luthor must get rid of Superman to make the invasion easier. He does this by using some sort of technology/robot/enemy supplied by the alien (Braniac? Doomsday?). Epic battle, Superman wins, but barely and is horribly weakened. He flies in to face Luthor who is staring into a screen completely awestruck.
Luthor "What have I done..."
Superman looks up into the sky. His face contorts into somthing resembling true fear.
Cut to outer space. An IMMENSE array of nasty looking spacecrafts hovers just out of the atmosphere.
The invasion begins.

(Movie three) Superman is defeated at the beginning, being weakened by his battle in movie 2. Aliens take over, cover the sky (sun can't get through).
Luthor works on technology that can pierce through the sun shield so that Superman can regain his powers. He succeeds. Superman fights alien invaders. Basically Independence Day with Superman.

I'd like that.

^Sounds cool.

I like the idea of Braniac and Lex using Metallo as a physical force.

I want Brainiac to be the main villain in sequel.

I hope Singer will include it in next movie.

I think that if he does he should not call him Braniac. An alien has no business having a name like Braniac in 21st century movies. If he wants to call him Braniac he must be a computer created on earth, some highly publicised-ultratech new computer which nasa (or whoever) has been working on for ages. Now it is released, and a new prosperous age for humnity can commence. But the computer is posessed by the consciousness of an alien, Vril Dox, who uses Braniac to blablablabla, among other things, to create Metallo. This was made possible by Luthor, who hacked into Braniac, opening a gateway for Vril to go through, in return for special privileges once the world conquest has succeeded.
Vril is the vanguard of a full-on invasion by some intergalactic mofo like Darkseid. Who invades in movie III.
This way we get Darkseid using Braniac using Metallo thanks to the aid of Lex, who also helps Superman in movie 3.

(this is all referring to my previous post, on page 2 in this thread)
