    Do you guys think Kon-El / Superboy be part of the DCCU? If so how should they do his origin on screen? Which costume / look should he have on screen?

    If we're talking Jonathan Samuel Kent Superboy then yes.

    Yeah, that would be much more interesting, imo.

    I mean there doing it now in rebirth Superman impregnated Lois, and they have a son Jonathan. So it is an option down the line

    Its all fake anyway, I always say if ChiChi can have Gokus son than Lois can have Clark's.
    And if its Baby Supes then I'd change my vote. But I still prefer learning more about him rather than bringing in countless other characters.

    Those are the comics where any and all attempts at trying to be even slightly realistic were thrown out the window long ago, I don't want that to happen hear in the DCEU I want them to at least respect the basics like an alien with vastly different alien dna that grants him alien superpowers would not be genetically compatible with a human.

    I'd give him the look he had in Young Justice season 2.

    Wow interesting how we can have such different opinions. I hate how boring a simple son of Superman is compared to a clone of Superman and Lex. Kon-El is so much more interesting. Geoff Johns' Titans run and Young Justice sold me.

    Would much rather have Kon-El than Jonathan. I'm not a fan of Jonathan Superboy.

    We can always have both, Kon-El and Jon Kent. But between them, I'd rather Kon be Superboy, since he was the first character to be Superboy as a separate character from Clark Kent. And I think the attempts to clone/recreate Superman would make an interesting ongoing story, resulting in the creations of both Bizarro and eventually Kon.

    I'm surprised to see so much negativity at the notion of introducing a Superboy(and Kon-El in particular), though.

    I'd rather Kara Zor-El be introduced first.

    That makes sense. She could be a surviving colonist still in stasis on some overlooked scout ship on another planet, which could have been named Argo/Argos by the Kryptonian settlers.

    I feel like WB has missed their opportunity to adapt the Reign of the Supermen storyline and are skipping it in favor of having Superman resurrected while the Justice League is dealing with an Apokoliptan invasion. It bugs me that whenever there's an adaptation of the Death of Superman story, they always leave out the Reign portion, or it's very simplified, as in Superman: Doomsday. There might need to be some changes for it to work as a movie, but it would be intriguing to see the debuts of Superboy, Steel, the Eradicator and Cyborg Superman. Introducing Superboy would be easy since it's feasible that the government would want to clone Superman and have him under their control in case of any future alien threats or another Doomsday scenario. Then John Henry Irons/Steel comes in wearing powered armor that he reverse engineered from Kryptonian tech. Eradicator could be the Jor-El AI creating a physical body for himself so that he can find and revive his "son"(picture Russel Crowe in a version of the Superman suit with that visor), while Cyborg Superman could be tied into Cyborg's origin and act as a rival for the character.

    I agree, i was hoping it was Luthor and Steppenwolf that had taken Clark and he was on a table somewhere, with a slight pulse - showing he wasn't dead.

    The JL break in and they are lead to a room and it is literally full of tanks of in stasis Clark, young, older, deformed etc. Which one is the real one and who do they rescue?

    Out on the streets the parademons are causing havoc in a city - up steps 'Steel' and people see the hope Clark inspired in Steel.

    Then we eventually see 'Superman' but it's not the superman and so forth. That's a justice league movie!

    Seeing as we've already gotten one Kryptonian/human clone in the DCCU, I don't see how it would be impossible to create another.

    Jon's nice, but considering what happened the last time a filmmaker decided to give Superman a biological son (the handling of it AND the backlash), I'd say go with Conner.

    This. The DCEU hasn't exactly got off to a flying start, and it's far too early to be thinking about the likes of their children. The only other Kryptonian I'm interesting in seeing in the DCEU is Kara.

    If MOS films went a certain way I would totally love for him to be in the movies. A clone with his/Lex DNA, built as a replacement is a good storyline to tell.

    I'm not against him showing up eventually, but I want to see Kara first.
