Anyway, I'd like to see a scary Braniac for this movie. Either him or Darkseid, but I think Darkseid is better served for a sequel.

Let's give Luthor a rest. Or at least keep him as a supporting character.

edit- Oooh, have Luthor in jail. And when Braniac attacks and causes devastation, Superman has to go to Luthor for help. And Luthor helps because he hates aliens and HE wants to be the one to beat Superman.

I know I've posted this to death, but I'd like to see the Elite. But I'd also like Brainiac as well and I like the idea of Supes needing Lex's help with this threat.

It's been rumored that Singer wanted Brainiac or Zod as the next villain and really wanted Jude Law to play the general. I'd love for either one to show up.

But there's the question of do they keep the previous cast (which I'm hoping for), get a new cast or simply promote the Smallville cast?

I rather they keep the original cast with some roles recasted.

Maybe Keri Russell as Lois and James Caan as Perry.

I wonder if the only reason WB agreed for Nolan to "mentor" is
he must have pitched a direction for the Superman movies
(á la, the same way he pitched the studio for his take on Batman)?

I'm very excited. After three years of rumors finally some good solid news.

Superman 1.0 is the original with Christopher Reeve.

Superman 2.0 is Superman Returns with Brandon Roth.

Superman 3.0 will be the next attempt.

*fist pump*

And I think 3.0 in that, there was the initial series, then an attempt at a reboot-ish sequel....thing with the new cast and stuff, and now the third presentation coming up.

Really, assign any arbitrary value, like A, B, C, or say there's only really going to be two franchises, or don't. Who gives a ****.

I think Nikki Finke called it that and it caught on.

personally i hated both of the new batman movies. just didn't work for me at all.

i do think that ledger did an amazing job at playing a crazy homocidal maniac...but that wasn't the joker in the movie...not the real joker...you know, the one batman knocked into a vat of chemicals and his skin and hair changed colors and he went crazy. this one had daddy issues.

i also hated singer vision of superman. the movie bored me and after five superman movies, several television and cartoon series and several interpretations of the character for once i would like to see lex luthor NOT be the villain of the piece. if there is to be another superman movie it has to be a comic book brought to life. it needs to be so crammed full of comic book referances and characters that you'll have to watch the movie over again in slow motion to catch everything. it needs to be non stop action: giant gorillas and robots and aliens and super dogs and bottled cities of kandor and brainiac and red kryptonite and the superman revenge squad and mr. mxyzptlk all at once all together and then some.

I think the Superman movies should take on a tone similar to All Star Superman. Superman should be doing and encountering amazing and strange things. He should come off as warm and courteous not corny, that he would make everybody feel like an equal when they meet him. It should have heroics, romance, drama, and humor.

Well hopefully Nolan has a good script that isn't generic like a Brady Bunch plot with the same characters.

I don't know. The more fantastic you make it, the greater the risk you run of losing the non-comic buying audience. Yes, there should be super-villians (not Lex Luthor, Land Baron) but nothing so out there that the audience feels (pardon the pun) alienated.
