Well Henry Cavill is playing Clark Kent. AND he's playing Superman... Could be that he's landed both of those roles in the movie because it'll turn out they are the same man! I think we're onto something here people!

I hope not. Because my fantasy script that I've been writing for MOSII will go to ****. Bruno Mannheim in my script is actually an alien agent of Darkseid, posing as a human

Maybe they could establish a new character who appears to be a human ally of Superman's at first. This ally may even demonstrate acts of courage to assist Superman in his fight against Zod and Faora. At the end of the film, however, a shocking reveal could take place showing that this supposed ally is nothing of the kind. Instead, audiences will come to discover that he/she has an ulterior motive and has only been helping Superman to gain his trust for the ultimate betrayal. Then we'll see an amazing transformation take place. This supposed ally is not human at all. Rather, he is Braniac!

What about Swanwick or Hardy being injured in battle with Zod and Faora and they use their injury to start building up to the character becoming Metallo?

General Swanwick will be trying to figure out a way to beat Zod right,
And Morph... am, Perry White will be like "The one has spoken to the Jorical and.."
Then the Gen will be like "I don't give a damn!"
Then Supes will be like "I know Kung Fu"

I should be a screenwriter.

I think a teenage boy in a crib is much less realistic than a teenage boy taking photographs.

At the end of the movie, Colonel Hardy will pull his face off and will be revealed to be Ethan Hunt. Then Hunt will pull his face off and be revealed as Old Man Withers, the creepy guy who owns the haunted amusement park!


And the top will keep spinning. But it will start to wobble.

I think it's very likely that Meloni indeed turns out to be Lex and the colonel-persona is either a part of his past or just a fake identity alltogether.
I can definitely see him having a double or multiple-identity to get access to military secrets and technology.

Of course, he's Lex! Look at him!

Wait a minute. This is actually quite possible. They are hiding that Lex is in the film, by having a Ras like alternate identity. Melloni seems to be the most likely fit in terms of appearance, other than Fishburne but Perry being Lex is a slight left field Anyways if they did something like this, man that would be pretty cool. Slight of hand associated in a Nolan related production makes sense.

I don't know about that... I like the idea of Meloni as Lex but I don't quite understand how (or why) he would be masquerading as a military officer. However... I think Hardy turning out to be Brainiac is more of a possibility. I remember a rather crytpic tweet from one of the writers at Latino Review a while back that said something about Brainiac definitely being in the movie. And since they were the ones that broke the Zod story, there's a good chance they were right. Plus you also had that (possibly BS) story on cosmicbooknews that said Brainiac was set up for a sequel.

I could see Brainiac trying to infiltrate human society via the military. That would give him access to all sorts of weapons and intelligence. You could argue that Lex would do the same thing, but I don't know why he would need to hide his identity. I think if Meloni was playing Lex, he's just be Colonel Lex Luthor or whatever.

Brainiac destroys Krypton.
Luthor uses Brainiac to clone Bizarro and to make Metallo.
Brainiac releases Zod from the Phantom Zone.
Superman destroys Brainiac.
Brainiac's remains attract Darkseid to Earth.
Brainiac's remains release Doomsday to attack Superman.

Lois Lane had Superman's illegitimate son... no that would be a terrible idea. Never mind.

Brainiac being responsible for everything in the series seems a bit much. Eventually it would stop being a twist and become a punchline.

Brainiac was the one that put the Spyware on Perry's computer.
