Default 1st Action Sequence?

What would you guys like to see for the first action sequence in the sequel? Would you like to see Superman go up against a minor villain like Shrapnel or Chemo, someone of that ilk, or would you just like to see great Superman rescue?

Me, i wouldnt mind seeing a minor villain, but a major sequence i've had in my head for a while now that i would like to see is Superman stopping a meteorite hitting a major city. Perhaps we could see Superman wrestle a tidalwave like Singer wanted to at the end of SR but couldnt get the extra money for.

This will be just purely for fun of course, and i would people to contribute no matter what you thought of SR (I loved it personally), but PLEASE dont turn this into another haters vs lovers thread.

So what would you guys like to see as the 1st action sequence?

i am not so sure i like the idea of a minor villian because i dont feel the general public knows superman's minor villians, therefore he would probably come of as cheesy, i thought that the airplane scene and the robbery with the turret gun were SUPERB, only problem was they were the best action in the movie
however, if they were the OPENING action that led to bigger things, they would have been perfect IMO

Hmm see what you mean about the plane and gun turret sequences, but i loved the third act sequences as well, especialy the lifting of NK and the fall back down.

But yeah what i meant with this thread was it would be the first action sequence of the movie to introduce it. Obviously the bigger sequences with the major villain would come later.

Superman versus a Brainiac drone, then he finds out its Kryptonian and goes of into space to meet the real Brainiac.

Default Re: 1st Action Sequence?

actually i would rather this.. this is the beggining of the movie..

we start just looking at the city..calm and collected..we begin to look at the city from street level.. then Bam..supes burst through the side of a building..at ground level..he smashes into cars...walking from the settling dust is john corben.. already Metello (played by Jason statham)...supes gets up and flys at him..upper cutting Metello into and through the building they just come from...


something like that..straight into the action.

but the question is what minor villain to use that can easily be explained (powers etc.) and the pulblic believes/accepts with not background/introduction

i personally wouldnt mind a montage of supes performing all sorts of acts from the mundane saving a cat in a tree to stopping a minor villain or meteor, all in a montage as i stated to show that superman has actually "returned" his former self

i like my idea..its simple and it doesn't need explaining..i have bever really brought into having to explain every charactor..just some dialog from the bad guy..in this case Metello.. Like

"ever since luthor did this to me.. made me a...man of steel..ive hated you..i'm the real man of steel"


if you have his skin partly ripped of it would explain he is a cyborg.

They might start off with an action scene though, could be even more of a minor villian(S). I would say Superman battling Intergang at the beginning would be a cool visual. Maybe he finally stops whatever Intergang is doing and hears some rumbling and a minor villian appears, maybe even Metallo.

Metello IMO is a minor villian.

I agree, I meant that Intergang would be the more minor villians, then Metallo would be icing on the cake.

I would like to see Metallo as an even bigger foe, Superman thinks his job is done with Intergang. Then Metallo appears.

I think metello could be brought in later..after he is arrested.. you know by luthor..or even used as a vessel for Brainiac.

Default Re: 1st Action Sequence?

yeah, i would like to see superman fighting a real villain with powers. Metallo, Bizzaro or maybe even Parasite...or Brainiac's drones...but please...no more conflicts with nature or man-made objects...


i've had more than enough of superman pushing, lifting and flying towards inanimate objects and forces of nature. and enough of the catching people from buildings....and catching objects before they crush people...it's all just been done soooooooo much.

hopefully this movie will start off with a villain...and not a plain, meteorite, tornado, bomb, or anything like that

hopefully the sequel will being some imagination and creativity to the franchise.

like an imaginative and creative way to kill of the kid or make him a villain.

If Metallo is in the sequel Superman better not defeat him by heat vision. That would be so lame and predictable

A bond-style opening vignette with a lesser-known supervaillain would be great. It's a great way to expand SUperman's universe without having to involve it in the main plot. Show them that Superman's not always just fighting Luthor, earthquakes and bank robbers.

The audience doesn't have to KNOW the villain. Doesn't need to know their origin. Just show a cool scene... like a 10 minute short film, you know. Explain the villain's powers visually and have Superman call the character by name, that's all you need to do.

Would work great for Batman too. No-one needs to see a whole Batman where Killer Croc is the main villain or another movie that introduces Riddler or Penguin or whatever. But a nice short little scene where Batman is up against the villain, who is already well-known to Batman. Or you could do the opposite and show Batman fighting some low-level, small time crime, bringing in a simple everyday murderer to Gordon or something.

But yeah, back to Superman - a pre-credits scene that is unrelated to the main story woudl be great, because it can expan his world without having to devote a whole film to it.

Putting him in a fight at the very start of the movie would be great. A city in chaos. The key would be having a fight towards the climax with a greater foe that tops the first one.

Agreed 100%.

Personally, I think Neutron would be perfect for the sequence.

They're both physically equal, so we can have them in a slugfest or a heat-vision/energy blast aerial dogfight for a bit, then Neutron's armor somehow gets cracked and he begins to blow up, so Superman hurls him up into the sky where Neutron's detonation won't endanger any innocents. After the explosion, we can also get a chance to introduce S.T.A.R. Labs by showing some technitions gathering the ambient energy left over from Neutron, while Superman smiles at them and they exchange mutual gratitude.
