Brainiac, I don't think there is really a question, I would also like to see him in organic form as opposed to a machine (gary frank style). Lex should have a small role and be hinted at for a sequel where he could create parasite and metallo. If there is a third movie I would really want to see zod back along with phantom zone prisoners rather than darkseid because I think they could explore more of krypton. It would also give them a chance to interpert the phantom zone.

Lex is more than just a Superman villain though. He's one of the core characters in the Superman mythos. He should be in every Superman movie in some shape or form.

Agree with other poster,want to see a villain we have'nt seen before. If they brought in Zod,ppl would compare,***** and complain it was copying Donnor's beloved Superman,and thats onething that killed SR..

I would'nt mind seeing a new villain made for Superman.

Why should Superman get a new villain when he has a rather decent rogues gallery to fight with Lex Luthor, Bizarro, Metallo, Brainiac, Zod, Mongul, and Doomsday

I do not consider the Donner Lex and the modern day Lex to be the same character.

yes he has, but the in a way re-inventing the characters with a much darker side, so making him that way will work

Lex Luthor.

And if he works in the script, Brainiac.

Exactly. I fail to understand whay SO many comic book movies (and I have to even include Nolan's Batman films in here due to the addition of Rachel Dawes) feel the need to add new characters when every superhero still has a plethora of unused characters that they can draw from. It makes no sense to me.

Every superhero has a villain that taxes him/her, but that's no reason to keep hashing it in each cinematic offering.

Don't be afraid of something that hasn't been done before.

Primarily voted for 'They shouldnt re-boot' as i still dont think they should.

But if they do, in the first movie the threat cant be TOO big, thats why i dont want to see Doomsday or Darkseid until at least movie 3. I think Lex and Metallo for a first movie would be sufficient, with a small role from the likes of Black Rock, Replikon or Ruin, just in the first hour or so.

Brainiac as the main villain, with Lex Luthor in a smaller villainous role. And set up John Corbenas Metallo for a sequel.

I'm not so sure that they should use Metallo. I like him and everything, but I'm just worried that an appearance by Metallo will turn people off because they'll just look at it as Superman vs. The Terminator.

Depends how they do Metallo...

They could go for the stupid moronic version (like they did in Clark & Lois) or they could put a twist on it and have him as the intelligent version...but they could make it so that there is a twist and Batman is investigating John Corban for the death of his parents and makes a slight appearance as Bruce Wayne in Metropolis...

Hee some can dream

I'm not sure Metallo would be the best act to follow Brainiac with, which is why I'd do it the other way around. Metallo is hired muscle that goes rogue, so he works well as a villain to start up Superman's career with. He poses a very big threat on the physical level, which is good since the story will be busy setting up the characters. Brainiac is a much bigger threat than Metallo IMO, so he's a better villain for act 2 or 3 (I'd like to see a re-envisioning of Zod at some point, but I'm not sure if fans will bite or not). Brainiac is a tough act to follow because he's not only a threat to Superman, but Lex Luthor as well. I can almost see the two rivals forming a temporary alliance to take Brainiac down, since it would take both brawn and brains to defeat him-- and that would be much better plot material for a sequel than an opening chapter.

yeah this was Singers idea of first movie and look where we are.

i odnt htink that people wnat to see a dead superman or a grandpa superman at he end of the first movie. but you need to make the first movie like its your last. go with everything you have. if not doomsday then darkside.
or like maybe brainiac.
again this is the last chance for a new superman . we already had LL in the 80's. and we have enough of LL on smallville. the technology is there and the money will be there. why not make doomsday or brainiac ?

Well, i was actually thinking about Metallo being a secondary villain in the sequel to Zod, or another bad guy, but your probably right.

I love Metallo from the animated series. I would be very happy if he were the villain in a Superman movie alongside Lex. I wouldn't want a retread of the Animated series story though.

the problem IMO is that with metallo you have only a villain for punching. which means that we again would get LL with the inteligence.

i want a new SMART villain .
