    For Man of Steel 2, I want to see Lex and Brainiac. However, I want a lot of what Brainiac was in the proposed Superman Returns sequel to implemented, if it's not already going to be used for Zod. But ultimately, he is out to destroy Earth. As for Lex, they need to get him right. I want him to be the Lex we see in All-Star Superman. He needs to he driven by jealousy, he spent his entire life in devotion to becoming the best of everything, to becoming the philosophical übermensch, and along comes this alien who was born with all the talents he has to work for, and for that he is hailed as the first son of Metropolis, while Lex is forgotten. What would be a bonus would be if they can put in that scene from Birthright where Lex manages to make contact with Krypton (with Brainiac tech) and Superman can tell his parents he made it safely to Earth, before they die.

    I know a lot of people probably wouldnt want it but I think if this is successful and they do a sequel then they should introduce Kara Zor-El in the 2nd one and do their own take on S/B: Girl From Krypton then they could always spin her off in her own film.

    Okay, what I would now like to see would be a movie told from three perspectives in this movie and three villains. Much like what was seen in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

    The three perspectives would be:
    Superman/Clark
    Lex Luthor
    Either Bizarro or Metallo

    And the three villains would be:
    Brainiac
    Bizarro/Metallo
    Lex Luthor

    The story of Lex would be much like it is in Lex Luthor: Man of Steel. Like in my quoted post Lex would be genuinely resentful of Superman for what he represents.

    The narrative focus of Lex would be a weakened Brainiac contacts Lex and gives him greater technological advancements to make his more, eccentric, ideas work. And his contingency plans to kill Superman (touched upon in the next sequel). In return Brainiac requires a new body (hence either Metallo/Bizarro).

    Bizarro/Metallo would be the attempt at a sympathetic story. If it were Metallo I would show him as a man that is entirely courageous and selfless, but injured in battle manipulated into a machine designed to kill Superman. Which he hates as he admired Superman.

    Bizarro would be fairly similar, but he would be entirely engineered by Lexcorp. He would be a corporate sponsored Superman.

    Over the film either of those characters would slowly see their mind degrading, distorting noble people into dark mirrors of Superman.

    Superman's arc would focus on Is he truly even alien or human? And why would he even want to be human or kryptonian? His interaction with Lex and either Bizarro or Metallo would show him a dark face of humanity. A monster who was made by man to kill him or render him obsolete and a self made monster who wants to stand over his bloody corpse no matter what the cost.

    His knowledge of Brainiac would show the depths that his biological race would stoop to (Brainiac would be kryptonian) and the atrocities they would commit.

    Does anyone else think the sequel should be titled Man of Tommorow?

    It might be, I'd think it more likely to be called "Last Son of Krypton," because, honestly, that's pretty frikking awesome, especially since it'll probably be true in the sequel.

    Jamie broke the news before Finke did. Three months ago, actually.

    He even added that Snyder is heading straight into prep on the sequel. No breaks, nothing. Hopefully Snyder and Goyer cracked a good story for the sequel.

    This here can be every Man of Steel sequel... Beings from across the universe coming to Earth every few years to challenge the last son of Krypton all because
    Clark accidentally activated the beacon on the ship that sent him to Earth.

    YES!

    - Lex Luthor.
    - Kryptonite.
    - Clark in disguise working at the Daily Planet.
    - Metallo.
    - Brainiac.
    - Supergirl.

    GIVE ME ALL OF IT

    I don't think we'll get Supergirl in the Goyer/Snyder Superman universe (especially using the MOS suit template). I mean, Goyer's deal includes Justice League... but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

    Big yes to these bolded things.

    I want to see Lex and Brainiac. I think those two are enough villain wise. Not sure about introducing kryptonite just yet. If they do, I'd like it done subtly. Perhaps Lex finds out about this ultra-rare item and pumps out lots of money for research teams to begin scouring the world for it. Something like that.

    Perhaps Lex could introduce the Kryptonite while building Metallo not yet realising the effects it has on Superman, but really I think it oughta be a surprise that Lex really does know Supes' weakness.

    So with word coming out that MOS 2 is on the fast track, where do you think they are into that phase? Could they conceivably be filming mid to late next year?

    It also looks like Cavill is back in Superman shape, so I wonder if he is on notice? Hopefully that makes sense.

    Provided Man of Steel is a success commercially, then filming could feasibly begin in less than a years time.

    MoS 2 by 2014 would be almost impossible. It can't be rushed if they want quality. WB knows 2015 will be Disney's summer with Avengers 2, Star Wars Ep. VII and Finding Nemo 2. They should wait for 2016 for the JLA movie, I think. Too much competition.

    cant wait for sequel and the main complaint about pacing in mos i think wont be an issue in sequel we have to remember mos covered alot of material

    Krypton and it's mythos
    jor el and lara
    zod and his army
    codex
    terraforming
    clark's self discovery journey with his odd jobs
    smallville flashbacks of clark's childhood
    FOS
    metropolis
    the military
    ma and pa kent
    and more

    this sequel wont have to worry about krypton,smallville,clark's origin.jor el,ma and pa kent and his upbringing since we have gone through that already and have already established clark,lois ,lombad,jenny and perry white

    time to build on the daily planet group of perry,lois,lombard,jenny,and now clark

    aswell as build on lois/clark relationship and possible inclusion of luthor

    Yeah, there's plenty of new ground to cover, though I hope we get a couple flashbacks to his childhood, just so we can see some more of Costner.

    I think for Superman's main character arc, we should see him struggling with being a good reporter while constantly having to go out and save the world. There's also the blossoming relationship with Lois and trying to keep that a secret, as well as (possibly) his growing suspicion of Luthor. We might also get introduced to Jimmy Olsen, and we could see their friendship grow.

    Was talking about this last night with my fiancé, what if one of the main thrusts of film #2 is Clark struggling with maintaining this new identity in Metropolis on top of his superhero status, and in the end failing? What if, for whatever reason, Clark's identity is outed by the end of the film? Film #1 shows us that this movie world is much like our own, a smaller, more connected world than that of the mid-twentieth century. That's going to make it that much harder to pull off "and who, disguised as Clark Kent." Also, much like the Dark Knight Trilogy, they've demonstrated that, in these films, not everything is sacred, and not everything lasts forever (like it does in comics). They've already re-worked the Lois & Superman relationship. I think we'll be seeing as radical of an approach to the Metropolis Clark identity.
