Man of Steel (2013) - Page 9

I still think at his core, Doomsday makes a bad choice as a villain for a reboot/1st film. He's famous for killing Superman. If they wanted to bring him in, I would wait till the 3rd film so it feels more climatic in the overall grand story arc even if he didn't kill Superman in the film.

I honestly do not want to see Zod as a villain for this film either. I just don't see him very interesting for some reason, not in the film anyways. Maybe they should do Lex and Brainiac in which Brainiac starts to attach himself to Lex in the end and opens up for a sequel. Maybe even have Metallo as a sub-villain, he always seemed to obey Lex and then Brainiac can be an easter egg through out the whole film. I wouldn't mind seeing someone like Parasite either.

I wouldn't mind seeing Gog or Magog but that is just too confusing for a film. Same with Mister Mxyzptlk.

In all honesty, I was never a fan of Superman's rogues gallery. Aside from Lex and Zod, most of his villains are either one-dimensional brutes or too farfetched for the mainstream audience to fully embrace.

Bizzaro could be fun.

^ Smallville already did it. Again, they did a pretty good job.

I do think Brainiac makes a lot of sense. You can do the whole invasion angle and have a character that would force someone like Lex to have to help the man of steel.

You can't have Lex help Superman in the first of a series. Even if people KNOW Lex is a bad guy, you still have to make it more meaningful then this.

I'd put Darkseid over Zod anyday. Darkseid is actually a pretty complex guy, he's pretty interesting. They've also evolved Doomsday to be more dimensional.

'Smallville' scoop: Michael Rosenbaum turned down finale appearance as Lex Luthor -- EXCLUSIVE
Lex Luthor’s latest scheme is perhaps his most villainous yet: Refusing to appear in the Smallville series finale. EW has learned that actor Michael Rosenbaum has repeatedly rebuffed attempts by producers this season to get him back on The CW’s show to reprise his role as Luthor in the finale. “He has put the show behind him and moved on,” says a knowledgeable source. “He’s pursuing his other creative outlet [writing]. By all indications, he is not going to be involved.” The door still remains open for Rosenbaum, but it’s closing fast. Smallville wraps series production in 6-7 weeks, with only three episodes — including the two-hour finale — left to shoot. Apart from seeing the Man of Steel finally put on the suit and fly like he means it, a re-appearance by Rosenbaum is the top request by fans looking for creative closure in Smallville‘s final season. (Forget Waiting for Superman — for Smallville fans, it’s all about Waiting for Lex.) Rosenbaum played Superman’s arch rival for seven seasons on the show and Smallville ends its epic 10-year run in May. Producers have publicly taken a “you’ll have to tune in to find out” stance when asked whether Rosenbaum will show up, all the while naturally hoping the actor will change his mind. Smallville will air its final hours on Friday, May 13. The CW had no comment.

He could have been a good and fun episode for Smallville though. I think they might have actually put an incarnation of him in the show but I do not really pay attention to the show anymore since they butcher most appearances/cameos of other heroes and villains.

Good news:

Michael Rosenbaum Returning for Smallville Finale

Don't believe the rumors, Michael Rosenbaum will indeed be back as Lex Luthor for the 2-hour "Smallville" finale on May 13. His deal to return was signed tonight.

"It feels like the stars are aligning, literally. We couldn't be more excited about having Michael back," Smallville executive producers/showrunners Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson told Deadline. "And as far as the way he returns ... there'll be no doubt about how Lex becomes the great rival in Clark Kent's life. He is the villain of the story."

"I'm simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made Smallville the great success it is," Rosenbaum said. "I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness and even their threats. Ha ha. I can't wait to hug the old crew back in Vancouver one last time and see all of my old friends once again..... Oh, and for Lex to become the badass he's destined to be."

Never really watched Smallville, but it would be cool if he broke out the Lex suit.
