I was just about to post this same article.
Funny how it came out the same week as the real kryptonite article.

I guess we need to keep our eye on this planet and if it ever goes bye-bye someone needs to get to Kansas and start looking for a baby in a spaceship.

We gotta have Darkseid, Brainiac, Parasite, Metallo, or Bizarro for the next movie. Superman is an alien - these movies don't need to be so Earth grounded-only. Singer feels he has to keep everything so real. A good screenwriter can make a movie relatable with important relationship themes or keep things real even when dealing with other planets or aliens.
As long as Luthor is in the movies we will have kryptonite. Super only BIG two weaknesses are Kryptonite and Magic.

Unless the WB has Darkseid, Parasite, Doomsday, Mongul or others as the main bad guys in the movies we will have more Kryptonite.

I would love to see the next superman film to go a whole run without kryptonite. WE GET IT, SUPERMAN IS ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY IT! WOW! Thanks for pounding it into our skulls. I agree it should be there some of the time, but it's been shoved in our face so often that it's no longer appealing. I think the next movie should be totally void of kryptonite.

And for god sakes, please have corpotate/political/scientific lex in the next movie! Can we see the savvy cunning and genius Lex Luther the way he was meant to be. If we're going to continue to see him in every movie, can we at least make him more of a threat. Lex should be mingling with corporate execs (managing his mega-wealth), the scientific community (developing new defense technology that drives his corporation) and senators (amassing his support for presidency)...not associating himself with a bunch of common criminal and goons.

I agree 100% magic would have been a terrible idea... Singer had no choice but to use Kryptonite...

If the plot is good it works... Sadly the movies plot sucked...

hey i like the idea of magic. but not over the top magic, just sublte stuff. maybe a magical villain as a minor villain who uses magic to augment his fighting skills, strength, and speed...and allow him to fly, teleport and fire mystical projectiles. I think that would have been cool if done right.

This is why we we need a superpowered villain. If the Superman Returns sequel uses Luthor, Brainiac, or Metallo, there's a good chance they are going to be using kryptonite against Supes.
if singer returned, kryptonite would be returned too. 'member, kryponite was planted everywhere in SR. the sea, the outer space, lex, the hospital, the museum, almost every corner got a piece of kryptonite.
that's just terrible.

This is funny. Dunn if it's been posted already, but I think it perfectly comomunicates (with a lil humor) some of the gripes we have about kryptonite being in EVERY movie.

As much as everyone may be sick of Kryptonite, it will always be around because it's the only thing that can stop Superman.

I am tired of kryptonite, personally. I think it'd be a lot more interesting if Superman had to fight a villain who doesn't have any kryptonite-related edge over Superman, and is just plain his equal in terms of physical prowess, or possibly better. I heard a lot of people complain that they almost wanted to root for Lex Luthor in SR just because they knew how easy it was for Superman to kick his butt. People like to root for the underdog, and that's probably part of why Superman has had popularity problems for a while. He's just too strong, and in SR, there was no-one who could actually physically dominate him.

I always loved the idea of Lex Luthor always wearing a ring with a kryptonite gem, because that would be a great frustration for Superman. Even if he wanted to kick Luthor's posterior, he can't just because of a stupid little rock on Luthor's finger, which always reminds Superman to stay out of his personal space.

Or they could just get a capable super villain to at least THROW a punch at him. That's a lot easier than going through the arduous task of baking a custard pie.

I thought the idea when you get down the the original bones of it all, to have an island made of Kryptonite and Superman getting stabbed by a Kryptonite shard were good. The problem was execution.

If Kryptonite is to be used I want it embedded in Metallo, otherwise, lets get it amped up.
