Absolutely. I just wouldn't expect that scenario to happen. After people complained that Superman didn't fight anyone in SR WB came back with MoS. The action in MoS was rewarded in a sequel. Here we are with that momentum.

Imagine having Riddler next to Luthor He will tease the heroes with his riddles and question marks, playing games with their minds.
And he should be to the Carrey version, what Ledger was to Nicholson... more serious and without campy elements that would not work in a realistic world.

The Riddler is camp, and this 'world' is only as realistic as Superman.

I think Brainiac would be awesome but maybe Metallo would be the better way to go. He can introduce Kryptonite and could be some form of project of Lex's. He could be Lex's answer to crime and a way to show his project is more reliable than Superman. Batman could Superman beat him and thats how Batman gets a hold of some K just in case Superman does ever turn bad

Ledger's Joker was highly camp. He was just as wantonly theatrical as Nicholson's, Romero's or Hamill's Jokers. The Joker is supposed to be camp. That doesn't exclude him from being murderous or frightening. Making the character's hair dirty does not stop him being camp.

The same with The Riddler. His whole premise is camp. That doesn't mean that it would not be effective in a more 'grounded' setting.

A Bizarro and Superman fight would be a rehash of Zod vs Superman.

I want K suit Lex and Ra's

I'd also be happy with Lex and Joker or Penguin

or if it is only going to feature Superman villains, Lex and Metallo or Lex and Brainiac

I admit that The Penguin would make more sense than Riddler in the early stages of meshing the two "worlds" together.
After all, BB didn't have Joker. We had to wait until the sequel. The same could work here.
Riddler will upper the stakes and bring more craziness to the plot. He can wait until WF 2 or Trinity.

The same goes for Metallo compared to Brainiac.

Actually I wouldn't mind seeing Solomon Grundy. Perhaps an opening sequence (or Act 1 at least) where Batman takes him out somewhere in Gotham. Not only to introduce the new Batman, but to show how powerful he is. Show off moves that push the envelope when it comes to "realm of human feasibility." And then when he's done with Grundy, he gets to the Batcave and diverts his attention to Supes and Lex Luthor's rivalry. And he tries to deduce for himself who the real threat is.

Lex Luthor - The Penguin - Metallo.

Now that Affleck is onboard, we could get Edward Furlong as Penguin. I support the idea now.

With this team-up movie, I feel like we will see multiple villains or at least two major villains. 1 for Batman and 1 for Superman.

This. I think Lex and Black Mask could work well too.

I see Lex being the primary antagonist, since he's an enemy of both Superman and Bruce Wayne. He offers a unique and interesting challenge to both heroes. In regards to Superman, he's his nemesis, able to plan out really large scale traps and schemes to crush the Man of Steel, while, with Bruce Wayne, he can compete against his business, offering him a ton of conflict in the process.

However, the movie needs another villain. I think Lex should employ Deathstroke, mainly because Deathstroke can compete on Batman's level, and, if they utilize him right, have him figure out ways to take down Superman, which forces him to require Batman for assistance. I dunno, I just love the idea of Deathstroke appearing, if only to open the door for him to appear throughout the DC Cinematic Universe.

They won't use a Bat-villain obviously, so I would go with one normal human villain and one sci-fi based villain.

How can you be so sure there won't be a Bat villain?

I'm wondering if there'll be a secondary villain in the film beyond Lex Luthor. My reasoning is pretty vaccuous, but bear with me.

The poster campaign for Man of Steel had 7 members of the cast listed above the title:

HENRY CAVILL
AMY ADAMS
MICHAEL SHANNON
KEVIN COSTNER
DIANE LANE
with LAURENCE FISHBURNE
and RUSSELL CROWE

3 of those names won't be back for the sequel. So to round things out - going with the hypothetical that Bryan Cranston is Lex Luthor - a similarly themed poster for this film may look like:

HENRY CAVILL
AMY ADAMS
BEN AFFLECK
DIANE LANE
(insert name of actor playing other pivotal role)
with LAURENCE FISHBURNE
and BRYAN CRANSTON
