Recently, DC and Warner Bros have decided that not only will there be a Man of Steel 2 but it is their new number one priority, you know, as it should have been a couple of years ago instead of a shitty Batman V. Superman Martha fetish film we all sat through for what seemed like 5 hours but was actually 4 hours and 50 minutes.
Superman is my favorite superhero sooo I’m just going to make it very clear that I want/need this movie to be good. I haven’t slept at night since Clark let Kevin Costner die in that tornado for no fucking reason. Zach Snyder doesn’t want me to be happy. I understand that now.
I think the most important part of this Man of Steel sequel is easily the villain. Who will stand up to oppose the most powerful man on the planet? It can’t be a middle-aged man who throws ‘Batarangs’. It just can’t. It needs to be someone who challenges Clark both mentally and physically.
Here are 7 potential villains for Man of Steel 2:
1. Real Lex Luthor
I think I can say with complete confidence that NO ONE enjoyed Jesse Eisenberg’s portrayal of Superman’s arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor. It was mega weird and straight up made me extremely uncomfortable. I really wasn’t sure how I was supposed to feel about Superman fighting an autistic Jew. Time to go with the OG plan of casting Bryan Cranston as the biggest criminal mastermind in the DC Universe.
They’ve already established that the Luthor in Batman V. Superman was a ‘junior’ so it wouldn’t be impossible to introduce him into the franchise. A one-on-one Superman solo movie is the perfect way to provide him with all the time you need to truly develop his character and legitimize him as a true threat to the man who is bulletproof.
