I always thought the title "Last Son of Krypton" would have been awesome for a superman movie title, especially if we could get some scenes of life on krypton into the movie.
I'd like the film to show commitment to the comics, but the story doesn't really have to be 100% tied to them, so maybe the krypton scenes could tell our villain's story and interact him with krypton/kryptonians in some sort of way, "dare i say" even he he never went there in the comics.
And he could end up on earth and a meeting with superman purely by chance or by some other way, instead of the usual yarn of, I'm for revenge for what ur father did to me, all those years back in the scenes they just watched etc....
In fact he could of purely have visited krypton and did some villain things (for purpose of movie scenes) without even having to have met jor-el.
Maybe the p[lot could even thicken with the return of lex luthor too (i liked spacey's darker luthor compared to hackmans clown).
What if our galactic villain, knows that one day in the space age future lex luthor will cause him great stress/maybe death.
He comes to earth to find/kill lurthor, causing mass destruction in his path, so superman has to stop him.
Then instead of the usual good guy vs bad guy, we could have a complex ed roundabout of a plot of Lex trying to kill superman, while superman tries to stop villain killing lex.
superman should just let villain kill lex, but his morals are too good.
lol sounds like a carry on film lol, but has enough in it to see his no.1 villain lex, a super villain to match him physically and also the triangle roundabout story has enough options for twists and turns.
Some people are thinking to far ahead, chances are there will be 3 films including SR Returns (maybe more but i hope not). In the next one I would really like to see brainiac show up and maybe team up with Lex to create a Superman clone (bizzaro) that goes horribly wrong lol. All i really want for the next film is action, I want to see Supes knocking people in to orbit, frieing robots with his heat vision just basically a lot more action and actually fighting with some one. Then of course for the third, it has to be either Doomsday or Darkseid. Can you imagine how fuking amazing it would be to have Darkseid in the third film? All out brawl between them on apokolips, wow orgasmic to say the least.
Shut up all of u who hates the title "Superman: The Man of Steel"! It sounds gd the very first time i heard it. It gives a definitive feel of epic proportions fit for a sequel of the great "Superman Returns" movie.
Also, to call it simply "The Man of Steel" by removing the "Superman" is ridiculous. Its a whole different story with "The Dark Knight". Imagine, "Batman: The Dark Knight" does not ring well! Just because Superman: The Man of Steel sounds like The Dark Knight reincarnation does not mean its a copycat! Then wat, Superman Returns copied Batman Returns?? Gosh u guys are stupid.
Bryan Singer wanted to include General Zod in Superman Returns, and had ask Jude Law, his only choice, for that role. That idiot declined that offer, likely because he dun wanna be remembered as a villain but a pathetic ladies 'heartthrob' so-called, venturing in films like The Holiday where he merely cries like a baby. Singer then dropped the idea, which makes me hate Jude Law for-ever. He dun deserve to be Zod!
I think they should not include an alien character as a villain in the superman films, cos tt's too comic-ky, but follow the style of Spider-man..choosing villains who were ordinary ppl initially. Not many in the superman canon though.
Zod shud return. And Lana too.
"I still find your lack of Faith disturbing..."
For all the lush visuals and emotional intensity of Superman Returns, a sizeable slab of its audience grumbled about its lack of balls-to-the-wall action, with complaints going something like, “If I wanted to watch a man lift increasingly heavy objects, I’d hang around my local skip.”
Well, Supes himself, Brandon Routh, gave us a few hints as to what we can expect from the sequel. And it seems a proper Scary Bad Guy (no offense, Lex) is very much on the cards…
“It’s going to be a lot more in that genre. In the first one, the obstacle was Superman’s love for Lois and his son, and Luthor using that against him. I just know that in the next film there will be a lot of action and I’m gonna get to fight something, or someone. An enemy with real physical power might be worked in there, definitely.”
Hmm… But what of a rumour that’s been floating around of late, that the next Superman flick will feature a certain outlaw from Krypton, a villain with immeasurable strength, a baddie whose love of baggy V-neck tunics is only matched by his fox-like cunning. In short, will Superman soon kneel once more before General Zod?
“I don’t know,” laughs Routh. “I don’t know how much we want to reprise characters that have appeared in the series before, since we’ve reset and used the first film to pay homage to all that’s come before. Now I think Bryan (Singer) might want to go somewhere new with it, which I think will be exciting.”
It’s early days for the project — Routh says he has two films lined up to shoot later this year (one a romantic comedy) before he dons the cape again, possibly in early 2008 — and aside from a bad guy, there’s something else missing: a title. “Yeah, I don’t think they’ve settled on one yet,” says Routh. “I suggested that Bryan call it Superman Returns Again, but I don’t think that will happen. They’re about to begin the pre-production process, so there’s a lot of ideas in the air and a lot of discussion about what’s going to happen with it. I promise a lot of excitement!”
Man I hate the title. Why would you want to have "man man" like that? It doesn't flow well at all. Sounds like that old "Repair Man man man man man man" thing from uh...shit...what was that show called? Your mind starts going at 20 haha. Anyway, yeah, Superman Man........
I wish they could've caught the mistakes of SR before making it, but now we're going to have to pay for it. The idea of giving him a kid was just wrong...and you know they'll never just kill him off in the next movie. As for villains, Luthor will probably return, but I'm hoping that Brainiac is the main villain, and I'm hoping its more along the lines of the "twisted HAL 9000" version rather than an alien in a purple jumpsuit and short shorts. If they don't do Brainiac and like, a smaller villain like Parasite or Metallo for a fight scene or two.....then it would have to be either Doomsday or Darkseid. Otherwise it'll be a waste of a movie.
When you think about it, we've been screwed with Superman movies. Out of FIVE movies, we've had two villains, basically.
