yea it would be nice if he is the only kryptonian around, though leave it open for maybe kara and/or city of kandor to show up to spice things up in a future movie.

Umm yes and no. I would like to see the phantom zone criminals in a future series because I think it would make a compelling story about earths views on superman when prisoners from his planet are released. I also think it would be an excellent story to reintroduce lex luthor and position him as metropolis's saviour/ getting on there good side.

Thanks, I think its ridiculously easy to come up with a good superman trilogy using brainiac, the phantom zone criminals and luthor with metallo/ parasite. Using those villains could actually give superman a challenge and I think audiences would respond to it. But thats just me, either way I think he should be the sole survivor of the good people on krypton for the movies.

In terms of surviving the direct explosion of the planet, yeah, Clark should be the last survivor.

The option to have the Phantom Zone criminals, Kandor, and Kara should be left open however. They all left Krypton before the planet was destroyed. Well...maybe not Kara...but Superman can be the last Son of Krypton. She's the last Daughter.

He should and will.

I think the only other possible survivor of Krypton we'll see is Brainiac; an artificial lifeform.

Although, there's also a good chance Brainiac may not be linked to Krypton at all for the film.


I don't think we'll see Kara/Supergirl in the movies, thank goodness.

The other thing is I think it's unlikely we'll see Zod and the Phantom Zone criminals in the new films.

Bryan was under enough heat for the Donner stuff. It's really not what the new franchaise needs.

Even Singer, Mike and Dan said they wouldn't have done Zod for their sequel (Mike and Dan pitched Brainiac, Darkseid and Corperate Lex).

I wouldn't count them out completely. If they reboot, their story is important enough to Kryptonian history that they might at the very least get a casual mention, opening them up for an appearance in a later film. Zod is a good villain because he has a personal vendetta against the house of El and not many villains in Superman's rogue gallery have that depth of involvement.

I could see them perhaps making a new Supergirl film as well. Superman would be a good way of introducing the idea that maybe another Kryptonian from his family survived. In her movie it would open up a spot for cameo appearances and allow for DC Universe wide cohesiveness which I think DC wants to copy from Marvels movies.

I wouldn't totally exclude the possibility that he wasn't the last survivor. That part of Superman's history has been overlooked since the 50s.

I just don't think WB would go for Zod as the type of supervillian they want at this point.

Heck, they don't even want Luthor in this one.

Brainiac's got the strongest chance.

Warners is having enough trouble from keeping their now dead Wonder Woman project from falling even further into production hell.

A Supergirl film is beyond unlikely; especially given how poorly the Helen Slater one did; I can't see WB realistically giving it a chance.

I have no problem with Superman being the sole survivor of Krypton, but that's mostly because there's still an easy way to bring in the Phantom Zone villains or even Supergirl without compromising that: just have the Phantom Zone villains be the sole surviving Kryptonians from a "mirror" universe (as with the first Post-Crisis version of Zod), and Supergirl be the sole survivor of Krypton's sister planet Argo (a la DCAU).

Have a reboot but show baby Kal-El in his ship during the credits. And during this scene you could show two rockets being sent into space. The one rocket has a blonde girl who looks about 16, this rocket is hit by debris and knocked off course into the blackness of space.

"We", the camera, would continue to follow Clark and it would even show his father speaking to him through a recording. The recording isn't so much for Clark as it would be for whomever finds the rocket. And it loops over and over again. It would show a brief history of Krypton and there would be a clip of Zod and other prisoners being trapped in a parralel dimension.


This way we'd have him be the only "survivor", but it would leave enough openings for Supergirl, Zod, etc...

Fair enough....I just think it would be wise if they left the option open. If they said right off the bat that Superman was the last survivor, you have eliminated a whole bunch of potential storylines before the story has even begun, including a possible Supergirl movie if they ever decided to do it. I'd rather they be all encompassing and permit interpretation by scriptwriters than have them come up with all new villains like Nuclear Man when they realize all the good villains were eliminated before even being considered. I know, realistically they will use a villain like Brainiac before going back to Zod or Luthor, and I support that 100%... but I also think if you limit your options, you pigeon-hole yourself like they did with Superman Returns and the kid.

I'm all for Brainiac with Luthor in the background... I feel Luthor should never be out of the picture 100%. However, I would still love a movie with Zod if they made it different than Donners and compelling at the same time.

I would just hope they don't say specifically... Kal-El... you are the last. Zod died on Krypton as did Kara and any hope for encountering another Kryptonian. The Phantom Zone was destroyed as well. That to me would be bad karma.... Thats like saying...well... He was sent to earth in a rocket ship in the first movie... lets teleport him using Star Trek technology this time to be a little different. Even if a concept was used, it doesn't exclude its future use. Nor should it exclude its future use if you want to tell an accurate story.

Well... The Supergirl movie was also a steaming pile of garbage... that probably didn't help. But if you put one of the girls in Maxims top 100 hottest girls list and advertise the movie to young adolescent males / females.. I think the movie could do well. An attractive girl in skin tight clothing sells. If there is a compelling story behind it, it sells better.

Right off the bat, as far as I'm concerned, Superman should always be the only Kryptonian survivor.

Realistically, now, in the boundaries of a movie, they don't have to be specific at all. The story is about a dying planet and its last son. They'll go that way and find some hole to pull Supergirl in, should they decide to go with a Supergirl movie (and, hell, assuming it'll be a Kara Zor-El one).

As for Zod? The Phantom Zone is a whole different beast.
