Screw plot and story. There's your sequel right there.
But, none of those characters have related motives besides a dislike of Superman.

Yes i know he could, but he never does, so you have to take that out of the equation. In a fist fight, as far as i have seen Darksied tends to lose.

I thought the "screw plot and story" remark would've given it away.

Same here, Brainiac is a most. I think there should be Brainiac, Lex, and maybe (i've always thought) have Superman fight villain at the start of the film.

Default What Superman Villains are visually interesting?

Hey all!

I have been wondering which Superman villains are visually arresting/different, or have visually interesting powers? For the purpose of seeing them up on the big screen.

I think Metallo looks great in the video game - so he certainly counts.

Brainiac has a lot of visual potential.

Darkseids Omega Effect would look great zig-zagging all over the shop.

But I am struggling to think which others are awe-inspiring.

Any thoughts? Is Superman's rogues gallery devoid of spectacular 'looking' foes?

Zod (in the Red Armour) had a sort of Vader-coolness about him I suppose.

It might be interesting shock value to see a Cyborg Superman.

I think there are a lot of good antagonists in the Superman universe. Trouble is that Singer is sorely lacking in imagination when it comes to this and will probably do a 'Zod' film because he's seen it done before. As far as the comix, go, however - he hasn't a clue.

Timm and Dini did wonderful things with the comix villains. He could take a look at what they've done instead of trying to 'ape' Donner a second time.

Default Re: Who should be the villian in SR2

i say the next two movies should be BACK2BACK with Brainiac being across the two flicks. As follows:

SR2: Man of Steel--Metallo is main villian, with Lex Luthor in the background, and Brainiac even behind him
SR3: Last Son of Kryton--Brainiac is the main villian, with Lex luthor in the background

Basically, Brainiac comes into SR2. Lex knows who Braniac is, asks for help, and so brainiac offers Lex krytonian metal/technology. lex finds some low-level thug who is about to die (somehow connected to superman) an opportunity to live again...resulting in metallo. Braniac and lex watch as metallo and superman duke it out. After metallo being defeated, Brainiac comes into battle and kicks the already beaten-up weakened superman's ass. While standing on top of him, Brainiac tells him about himself, who he is, (maybe how he worked for Zod or something), and how he wants to destroy earth. But as he is leaving, he looks back, and says "Kal-El, i thought you were the last of your kind. Clearly I was mistaken" (indicating he knows about jason's secret.) Since he like collecting rare items, extinct species, he has his eyes on jason.

Third movie (haven't thought it out as much with the plot points), huge confrontation between superman and brainiac, maybe have richard somehow sacrifice his life to save superman or jason, with his dying words somehow involving him saying that he knew jason was his son. After everything resolves and brainiac is defeated, the three of them live happily ever after, with clark and lois getting married. The fate of lex can go either way:1. have him go back to jail 2. somehow, in an odd twist of event, becomes the president over the course of the two movies leaving the ended trilogy with a open ending.

How wouldn't that be interesting?

When you phrase it like that, you can make any villain's appearance sound lame.

Anyway, in response to the thread title's question, the only Superman villains that I can think of who are NOT consistently visually interesting are the Toyman and the Prankster. Although the Toyman's changed his look a few times over the years (I'm actually pretty fond of his 'dark' look with the glasses and cape that Jurgans gave him during the period when he killed Cat Grant's son), his traditional appearance has usually been flamboyant dress suits, which aren't all that spectacular.

And the only cool thing about the way the Prankster looks is that badass moustache he's been rocking ever since he gained his slim new body.

On another note, a villain who I think would look really great on the big screen would be Neutron. His costume is simple enough to easily get it right for live action, but the fact that he'd have the shimmering energy of golden lights and shadows playing around him constantly would add so much more visual excitement, IMHO. Plus, I think it would be just plain cool to get a look at his "face" through his helmet .

DARKSEID - u have to introduce a vast world of characters, races & planets, although i also wud want to see the world & the wars of apokolips, i dont think itz realistic & practical for the studios to venture on this aspect of the Superman mythos

TOYMAN - he's a cool villain, but the resemblance of his overall "aura" with Joker would make him be ruled out as a Superman villain

BRAINIAC - if they did him the Way Timm, Dini & d rest of the DC animation hav introduced him to be. BRAINIAC wud be SO awesome!

METALLO - wud be a great villain! ok...almost ALL of d good villains were well utilized by d Timm/Dini team...

PARASITE - wud be a challenging villain...one dat wud boggle superman how to fight

BIZARRO - ive always imagined the Bizarro storyline to utilize the cloning technology which is now realistic....funny, but iv been imagining Bizarro to be portrayed by Johnny Knoxville

Superman vs Bryan Singer - Singer has godlike powers...every time Superman tries to throw a punch, Singer can make his punch stop & just make a very gay smile instead. hehehe

Q: How is Mongul different from any other alien?

A: Hes not. Therefore he is not visually interesting. He also has no visually interesting powers. So hes 0/2.

If you contrast Mongul with either the 'Alien' (from the Alien movies), the Predator or even the 'Thing' (from the movie 'The Thing') they all have interesting and original visual quirks and/or abilities.

Mongul has none of that. Theres nothing iconic about him. Unlike say, Doomsday who does have a cool. original look.

Likewise anyone who is simply an alternate Superman is not really visually arresting. Ultraman = Superman with a sneer, Bizarro = Pale Superman, Zod = Superman in black clothes*.

*Unless its armoured Zod.

Default Re: What Superman Villains are visually interesting?

Darkseid would look really awesome onscreen (if done well) but I can't help but think that people would laugh at him, considering his name is actually DARKSEID and he lives on a planet called APOKOLIPS. Seriously, this is one thing I've never understood. Was DC trying to make a statement than people who can't spell are evil?

Anyway... I think Brainiac could look cool on screen; especially if they gave him the classic Brainiac brain/skull spaceship. Zod could look cool if they made him armored Zod, but since this is Bryan Singer we're talking about here, we'd most likely get an updated version of the shiny black suit Terrance Stamp wore. Bizarro could be cool if they made him look the way Alex Ross paints him. Metallo could be super-badass if they pretty much just made him the way he looks in the SR videogame. Hell, if they would have had something like that in the SR movie, it probably would have done better at the box office.
