    Yeah Morrison did that in Action Comics. I did think it slightly lessened Metallo as a villain mind but I think we might need them to go all in the next Superman anyway.

    Unfortunately, because of the original Superman movies, Superman Returns, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, the general movie-going audience probably think Superman only has two villains: General Zod and Lex Luthor, and that Luthor is a bit of a buffoon. Superman seemingly has exhausted all his villains that he had to fight Batman.

    Maybe the general audience are waiting for Nuclear Man to reappear next.

    Honestly I hate to say it but I don't think the general audience are waiting for a superman movie at all. That's why if they do another one they need a really great villain (Brainiac) and a reminder of what makes superman great in the first place

    I think with all the times Metallo has appeared on a Super TV series, Lois & Clark, Smallville, Supergirl, that general audiences are probably more eager to see Metallo.
    Nuclear Man was in only one poorly received movie and I doubt most people remember much about Nuclear Man.

    Brainiac is my first choice but he's not a must.

    Brainiac is definitely my first choice but I'm flexible in regards to the villain if I get some other things I want to see.

    Yes I'm afraid this time as fans we will have to insist on Brainiac. If they don't have Brainiac as the villain then I'm calling the police again

    If we end up getting MOS 2 then I think we're getting Brainiac.

    If they use BLack Adam as the villain i will be disappointed to say the least. This is the perfect time for them to use Brainiac, using Adam will just result in a punch fest like MOS

    Metallo would make for a smaller, personal story

    Brainiac would be another alien movie, but would be cool depending on how they differentiate it from other alien movies.

    I could see Luthor turning up again but not being the main villain

    It could be like in the comics and animation where Brainiac uses Lex as a host, taking over his body.

    It would be another alien invasion movie after MOS and Justice League.

    But it could be different from Man of Steel if it gave more focus on Superman helping people against Brainiac. Focusing on his heroics as he helps humanity in crisis. So it's not mostly a slugfest between Superman and Brainiac.

    Also, Brainiac has a lot of different powers at his disposal, from the robot army and his Skull Ship, to his manipulation of technology and his control of machines, to his mind-control of people etc. There's a lot to work with there and he could affect the Earth and humanity in a lot of different ways.

    Alien movies can differ from each other greatly. From straightforward invasion stuff like ID4 to more intriguing stuff like Invasion of the Body Snatchers or The Thing etc.

    Yes ET a nice alien for once! (Oh wait...and Superman.)

    Joaquin could play the Brainiac in Lex's stomach.

    Or if you want Lex to miraculously turn into Joaquin Phoenix? One word: Flashpoint. :cwink:

    I'm sick and tired to **** seeing lex and Zod over and over since the first movie. Can't the studio think of any other villain to use? So much recycled plots and villains are getting old. I for one would like to see Conduit as main villain and appearance of Braniac for next one after. The second villain to see would be a different DC villain to tie into multiverse. Have cameo by Eradicator and John Henry as Steel to add some new stories. Get with it, stop using same ****.

    Conduit could be interesting but I worry it could turn out like Jamie Foxx as Electro in Amazing Spider-Man 2.

    I have been re-reading Brainiac in the New 52 Action Comics (Grant Morrison). Where he takes over Earth tech and creates an army of robots and also Metallo. It could be an interesting way to include Metallo, if they give him enough screen time. It connects a lot of other characters including General Sam Lane, John Henry Irons (Steel), John Corben (Metallo), Lex, Lois and Jimmy.

    Also in it Clark cares about people's problems and goes out and fights crime and corruption as Superman as well as a reporter, fighting corrupt businessmen and politicians. It could be a good start and a good way to tie everything together.

    I would like to see villains never seen in a Superman movie because the have really used Zod and Luthor too damn much they are raw. There needs new and fresh stories so I would like to see:

    1: Metallo
    The diseased infected thief named John Corbin asks many for help, using all his finances seeks help from Luthor Enterprises where they turn him into a cyborg to do what they want and control him but when he turns on them, Superman is the one that can stop him but avoid his Kryptonite heart.

    2: Braniac
    The alien arrives to seek ultimate knowledge and knows of the Codex on Earth. He threatens to take Metropolis if it's not handed to him but Superman then discovers his plans and finds Kandor on his ship shrunken.

    3: The Conduit
    A old friend Ken Braverman, a struggling writer and reporter can't get a job anywhere and has a lot of terrible luck. When he asks his friend Clark for help, he is soon arrested and blamed for a crime. He gets mad at Clark and Daily Planets Perry White for everything ruined. When he finds out he is Superman, he asks a inventor to design a suit to get his revenge against him and Daily Planet.

    4: Mongul
    From War Planet, he finds out about Superman and his strength and brings him there to challenge. This is where he is put up against Kara, he finds out is his cousin and they find a way to escape and get back to Earth and he brings her. At end, she becomes Supergirl.

    5: Bruno Manheim as side villain
    He is a criminal that is a major player in wanting power. He could replace Luthor as human no power villain.

    Conduit or Brainiac. They'd have the coolest looks in a film. Bizarro would be cool but we already got Lex creating Doomsday as a weapon. Bizarro would be too similar.

    I really like Livewire and Metallo but neither of them have the personal connection to Superman that Brainiac and Conduit have.

    I still think they should introduce Lobo via a Superman film and have Mongol be the main villain in that story.
