Brainiac as the main villain, with Lex in more of a supporting, behind-the-scenes villain role. And maybe the Eradicator device could be introduced but not as the actual Krypton Man character yet... just the machine.

^I think they should just mix the Eradicator with Braniac and make it the same character. I kinda want Braniac to be a small device first like the Eradicator and then later arrange himself a robotic body.

that'd be great, but they'd have to work the character just right

Default Re: For The Reboot, who should the Villain/Villains be?

I'd rather they keep Brainy and Eradicator seperate, just because I love both characters and I think that they each could be interesting and work well in a film, particularly because Eradicator eventually becomes a hero and I'd love to see them do that arc (I'd kill for a solo Eradicator movie, though I doubt it would ever happen).

I'd also like to cast a vote for NEVER have Mister Mxyzptlk in a film because I f**king hate him).

In TAS, Brainiac and the eradicator are basically the same character. Have you ever read Whatever happened to the man of tomorrow?

Sadly no... I've heard that it would give me a newfound respect for Mxy, but until I get around to it, I still hate him.

I would only want to see Zod and his crew if they threw Parasite in there to make it more interesting.

As for this film though... I would love to see a Luthor Brainiac team.

We've seen too much of Brainiac in the Smallville show so I dont think he'll make an appearance as the main villain. Same with plans for Doomsday to feature in Season 8 so i cant see him being there either...the way Smallville is panning out they're lining it up for a Justice League series or film and I can see Doomsday being the main villain for that..

The ultimate villain that i would love to see (played by Michael Duncan Clarke) would be Darkseid...

That visually on screen with the Omega Blast would be awesome and when it boils down to it these two are destined to fight forever...Luthor has been done in all the films and yes he could feature as trying to manipulate Darkseid to his own gain but Darkseid would be the villain to put on the big screen

Default Re: For The Reboot, who should the Villain/Villains be?

I voted Brainiac, Luthor, Metallo, and Parasite. Obviously it would be too much to put all of them in (unless there's just a quick scene where he takes one of them down.... i.e. the Scarecrow scene in TDK). But I do hope that these are four that they choose from. IMO, these four are among the best 5 Superman villains.... the other being Doomsday of course. But I do not want to see Doomsday in a film.

^That on Smallville wasn't really the Brainiac i want to see...You cannot compare a TV show with a big-budget movie. That would be like saying we cant use Metallo because he appeared in the Superboy shows and Lois & Clark.

I wanna see Lex Luthor plus another villain. Brainiac being the top choice, and Parasite being close by. But I personally wouldn't put Brainiac AND Metallo. Either one or the other, because I can't see Metallo as a bit player.

Brainiac should be the main villain and Luthor should be lurking/plotting in the shadows kinda like being part of the audience.

Brainiac as done by Gary Frank would be killer. More like an entity. A "brain". Plus, he looks freakin' scary. Maybe make him more mobile.
And maybe kinda combine him with Metallo or Metallo be his servant/henchmen.

If they're doing an origin film, I'll like to see Lex Luther, Intergang, and Metallo.

Default Re: For The Reboot, who should the Villain/Villains be?

I'd go with Luthor and Metello uno if they do an origin cos my idea is that Lex has Team Luthor help the Police gith crime but he charges them a small fee and sometimes stages some of the emergencies to get more money out of them and also to get more people in the city to love him.

Superman comes along and not only makes Team Luthor look obsolete, he's doing it for free. So LexCorp has been studying Kryptonite and its affects on plants and animals, Lex wants to do it on people and see what they can do with it. One of his old Luthor agents had was killed during one of Superman's heroics and Lex builds him into Metallo to get rid of Superman so he can save the city from now on and be the hero of Metropolis.

Metallo and Superman fight with Superman weakened he's easily beaten. Metallo goes mad with power afterwards thinking he should be in charge and not Luthor and goes after Luthor to take over.

Superman wakes up after Metallo goes away from him so he doesnt feel the affects. He starts looking for Metallo and fights him fast so he can't open his rib cage revealing the Krpyontie inside. Superman agaion is weakened and uses long distance attacks to beat Metallo but not before Lex blows Metallos head off with the detonator he put in his head.

Lex picks up the Kryptonite knowing it now weakens Superman he moves towards him but doesn't kill him... he just lets Superman know he knows how to kill him and holds it over Superman that one day he'll be the one to kill him.

Luthor should always be in a Superman film but he doesnt have to be a big role either a cameo like him being on the news or a mention so we know he's always there i mean hes the CEO of the large company he's gonna be in the foreground even if he is in the background.

Enough with Luthor and Kryptonite. Give him a couple scenes and all the other villain screen time to Brainiac already.
