I’ve seen in a few places that the villain is to be the evil General Zod of Krypton.
Thank the good Lord. Let me speak for the whole freaking world when I say we don’t need ONE MORE Lex Luthor real estate scheme gone awry story. Not one. As a matter of fact; if he isn’t wearing a purple and green Kryptonite powered super suit, I don’t think we ever need to see the bald bad business titan again on the big screen. Been there; done that. Screwed it up twice.
The most interesting thing about this to me is the idea I actually read on CHUD.COM of Supes being an adopted American citizen, raised here with the values that that entails. Truth, Justice, etc and so forth. Then Zod shows up; a Kryptonian Superman even before the Sun’s rays give him the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound and melt stuff with his vision (Maybe someday someone can take a minute and explain the “science” behind that to me…)
This would set up a pretty cool backdrop for an illegal immigrant tale in the streets of Metropolis.
Or maybe Zod will just want to own part of California. Sigh.
