I don't like this title, it is old and sounds like a book. That mask of steel after Jor-Els speech..."my only son"...yes, probably that was the inspiration. Somehow I get the feeling nobody likes "sequels" but a brand new story. I'd like to know who's going to be the villain...they said next year. I have already made my decision. And I also have a cloud vision. Part 1: Darkseid is too arrogant, Metallo needs more power. Part 2: Brainiac is a perfect creation but is lacking performance, Doomsday is a bit unstable. Part 3: Mr. Mxyzptlk is not he's own boss. Part 4: Parasite, Lobo, Bizarro are not serious stuff. Part 5: Zod is been hidden, they regret creating a villain much like a hero. I typed on search <Zod comic first appearance> and shows a wrong cover.
Man of Steel was a Superman comic for years... guess it'll do...
“Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction -- its essence -- has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all.”
Man of Steel is not for a movie...you are repeating the title superman (1) then again man of steel (2)...see my point? I would prefer a title without superman this time..."Legacy of Krypton" c'mon we need this! 1_Superman Returns. 2_Legacy of Krypton. 3_Kal-El and the Universe. If you like my titles then ask me for 3 more
But if u turn it the other way around like he did to the plane is going to lose a wing! Here's why. Superman: Man of Steel (superman+zod or metallo) Superman: Data of Krypton (superman+brainiac) of of of blah blah blah...I don't agree.
Let me tell you how I would like Brainiac to be. Brainiac is only artificial intelligence much like skynet from terminator. It did not destroy Krypton just took advantage of the natural disaster by taking possession of one of their best spacecrafts...a ship and a soul, no passenger. Made its escape and consumed resources from other planets...again, much like the crystal identity from Star Trek NG. I also want Brainiac to preserve a small Krypton with Kara in it moments before the planet blew to attempt liberally further studies on them. When it arrives on Earth it finds similarity in likeness of both races and decides to choose. This allows Kara to escape but the others which were very few didn't make it. Brainiac becomes one of the Earth people and confronts both S & K. Kara dies in the explosion of the ship. Brainiac is a robot in the animated series but I'd leave that to Metallo. This is just a fan commentary.

It matters little what the title of the film is if the story is less arduous and painful to sit through as SR is. Get a writer that understands the entire Superman mythos and can deliver a script that gives us a less loved lost hero, some kick ass action and a villain which can match Superman’s abilities. Otherwise you are wasting everyone’s time, money and patience.
Keep the same hack team from SR and you’ll have a ZOD who can shoot levitation beams from his fingertips or a Brainiac that can make Eggos pop out of his forehead.
Zod is the physical match of Superman, tough to beat and smart. In film history movie 2 always had the best action...the middle paragraph of compositions. Bring many scenes on Krypton with no need of Jor-El...a combination of narrative events and memories.
So you didn't like the title: Conan the Destroyer? (C'mon, how many other destroyers are there that aren't named Conan?)
I can see your point, but I don't think anything is wrong with that. It's a nickname, it helps describe the character of the main character. Wonder Woman - Feminazi Manhater - see? Just helps describe the character.
Superman: Man of Steel? Well, to be honest, I hated Superman Returns. But Man of Steel doesn't bother me as a title.
I don't think adding a nickname of a character to a title hurts the movie anyway, it's what you see after the title is displayed.
For the villain, it cannot be Zod (since he died in part 2, and superman returns is a continuation of the previous superman movies so therefore nothing short of a ressurection could bring him back) and it cannot be doomsday (since he is dubbed as "The Being Who Killed Superman" and therefore casting his character in the next superman installment would make people think, "This is where superman dies", which probably wont happen)
Honestly, I cant really think of any other character apart from lobo, darkseid or mr mxyzptlk playing the villain (brainiac's technology is so unbelievable i dont think a lot of people are gonna buy it) or unless the director does something stupid like bringing lex luthor back.
excuse my fist... it thinks you belong with the dirt on the floor...
