I hope it's both. Hell maybe since they have WW in this movie, it'll be a collaboration on all fronts. 3 villains vs 3 heroes!

He's a producer, but he's also a fanboy. He's not in the tabloid business like El. I think he gets legit info but they might be pushing out misinfo to him since he's making a name for himself with putting out info on this film.

Relax, breath! A Batman villain is not necessary, with Lex, Metallo and Doomsday (if true) is more than enough. Wait for your solo Batman film for that, patience then!

PSH is at the very tippy top of my list and I've pimped him out a few times in the LL casting thread. If they go the ginger type, PSH would stoke the HELL out of me. I'd be insanely happy with that choice.

Lex, Metallo and Doomsday wouldn't make any sense at all. Doomsday belongs to a particular event, which is hardly compatible with other villains and their associated storylines.

You sense that the temptation would be to use Doomsday as a Rottweiler for one of the other villains, a la Bane in BAR. Horrible.

Joker X2, Scarecrow, The Penguin, Catwomen X2, The Riddler, Two-Face X2, Bane X2, Ra's al Ghul, Poisen Ivy, Mr. Freeze and the list goes on.

Lets bust out some Superman villains we have never seen before that deserves to be in the spotlight, shall we? Who did we ever get with Superman? Lex and Zod? That's it. Give us some Super-villains for once and give Bats his damn on-going rogue gallery that we've seen plentiful in his solo. Bring on Brainiac, Parasite, Mongul, Metallo, Doomsday, Darksied, Bizarro and hell, even Mxy or LOBO!

This is how it would've gone(replace the Iron Man suit with the Lex battlesuit):



Scarlett would've been phenomenal, there would've been decent chemistry. However Henry was only 20 and a bit young at the time though. I'm glad Henry was picked now, he's the right age and look.

I wonder if this happened, what would've happened to Avengers?

We don't know if the rumors are true, but it could work if Doomsday is just a cameo for later if they decide to adapt the story. I think Lex and Metallo should be enough trouble thanks to kryptonite, plus an initially paranoid Batman regarding Superman, Kal-El will have his hands full.

Lex (maybe at the behest of the military) should create Metallo, hire Deathstroke and corrupt the Bat-drones.

Final battle is Metallo, Deathstroke and drones vs Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

if the drones are true just thinking out loud wouldn't it make more sense for Brainiac to take control over them and perhaps Hugo Strange to be the facilitator?

McConaughey would be excellent for Lex. Recently he's had a string of great roles and knowing his pre-existing acting ability from his earlier roles, he would go very well.

With more emphasis on Superman I hope. Using Iron Man 2 as an analogy:

Superman=Iron Man
Batman=War Machine
Wonder Woman=Black Widow
Lois Lane=Pepper Potts
Lex Luthor=Justin Hammer
Metallo/Deathstroke=Ivan Vanko
Bat Drones=Vanko's armored Iron Drones

I guess this is probably what they're aiming for? Except I see a lesser role for Wonder Woman, she probably won't even suit up until the end.

Strange and Brainiac?

Odd combo.

Stange wants ultimate Knowledge and Braniac can give it to him not completely odd or out of character for either.

Lex has the resources to hack the drones, they could use Brainiac later, I don't think they're going to use another alien villain after MOS, but who knows.

If WB are searching black actors for Lex, I like Denzel Washington, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Jeffrey Wright for the role.

Denzel is my current favourite. I believe him to have all the qualities to make for an awesome Lex.

And people couldn't be more wrong saying he's too old. He looks and shows no telling signs whatsoever in any way, that he's a year off 60.
