I think Supes saving the earth from something that can actually kill him gives it a nice twist though...plus then tying in a Luthor cameo would IMO be better than just saying here's a rock that can kill Superman.

Isn't the first part "Panic in the Sky" from THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN?

I think Lex should be introduced but not the main villain in a 2nd movie.

Mind you you can do a "losing powers" story without Kryptonite...just make Parasite the villain.

not sure....I've been sporadic with my Superman reading throughout the years. And yes Lex should be introduced and I agree he should not be the main bad guy.

Parasite would be cool...Loved the Erath 2 volume 2 story with him by JMS.

Sorry meant "Panic in the Sky" from the George Reeves THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN.

He flies to knock an asteroid that threatens the earth off track even though it has kryptonite in it.

(Spoiler: it gives him amnesia and everyone thinks he died).

Small skirmish with wannabe villain like Toyman to open, but seed of bigger threat like Brainiac underneath. Superman on top of the world and Clark having to start at the bottom rung at the Daily Planet. Supes helping with cleanup and charity in last film's aftermath, but Luthor trumping him at both in "his" town. Lois in love with her career, Clark too low on the totem pole to socialize with Lois at work - stuck with Jimmy Olsen. More humor, need a wedge between Lois and Clark, some cerebral challenge for Supes, like defeating Brainiac by changing the rules of engagement. Luthor driven from jealousy to villainy by film's end, since he was behind Brainiac in the first place. Lana Lang. Clark and Lois cannot be interesting if their relationship is already settled. She must decide she is bad for him.

Thems my thoughts.

agreed...however it's inevitable...only a matter of time before it's in the movie.

With the meteor, it sounds a bit like what they did in Superman Returns with the island. If they have to use Krptonite, I rather that it be used in the form of Metallo, Lex Luthor's power suit, or the Krptonite Man.

I hope Snyder (and Goyer) do the smart thing - do not listen to the Superman fanboys!

you can hope but let's be honest....We know people like Snyder, Spielberg, Abrams, Nolan, ect come here just to get their ideas.

I mean why else would we post our thoughts of things we think would be fun to see.....To induce discussion between one another in a fun civil manner.....LOL as if!!!

Sorry to thwart your hopes!

well I see it more along the lines of superman 1 although we did not see the meteor we were just told about it.

In SR they used a crystal. But honestly it will have to eventually come into play at some point. And if it does I really like your thoughts of how to use it.

We are fortunate that Snyder was sensible enough to avoid the red Superman underwear for the costume

Agreed but I still think they should have kept the red belt from nuSuperman.

I'd like to see some elements of the DCU in the next movie. The Watchtower, Queen Industries, Themyscria, Atlantis, S.T.A.R. Labs, Stagg Industries. Maybe see characters like Will Magnus. Just a little something to suggest there's more of the DCU coming. Be cool to see JGL show up in a cameo.
