Brainiac. But don't call him Brainiac. An alien that collects data and specimens from worlds and then destroys them.

#3 Edited by inferiorego (23163 posts) - - Show Bio

"Brainiac" (I agree with @kal_smahboi, don't call him Brainiac) would be a perfect fit for this universe.

@kal_smahboi: @inferiorego: Well, they managed to go all of The Dark Knight Rises without calling Kyle "Catwoman," so I'd like to believe they could accomplish something similar here if they really wanted to.

seems alot of people are favouring brainiac but after one alien invasion i think doin brainiac soon after would be too much,maybe work in Lex Luthor man of the people to bring things back down to earth and then go for brainiac in the third part.

There should be an option for "Please Don't Make Another Man Of Steel Movie."

#11 Posted by ForeverMan (138 posts) - - Show Bio

I would like to see a movie with Lex exploring the mistrust of Superman that realistically many humans would be bound to have following the events of the first movie.

No option for "Superman caring about collateral damage"? Sad day.

If they go for a complete trilogy his next foe should be Brainiac. For the third and final movie they should timeskip a couple years and end it with a bang by bringing in Doomsday. Epic Trilogy Complete

#16 Edited by nappystr8 (1088 posts) - - Show Bio

Although my initial reaction was to choose someone new like Braniac, the way they ended Man of Steel leaves room for no other character in my mind other than Lex Luthor. Superman was the cause of his city burning to the ground. He probably lost friends and family, he definitely lost millions of dollars. Never has Luthor had a more justified reason to hate and fear Superman. If they hold off on the Lex movie, I don't think the impact will be quite the same. Besides, even though Luthor has already been in 3 of the 5 movies, he's never actually been done well.

Brainiac for sure

#19 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (33069 posts) - - Show Bio

Why are pepole saying Brainiac? Surely he's the third film "end game" boss?

#20 Posted by TheManInTheShoe (3878 posts) - - Show Bio

Lex Luthor. Becuase Brainiac seems like a character perfect for the last film, like an invasion. Lex can appear in the last one as well.

#21 Posted by TommytheHitman (3099 posts) - - Show Bio

After the awesome fight scenes in the first film I've gotta go with Doomsday

#22 Posted by Mara (42 posts) - - Show Bio

Mongul and War World, Superman's Arkham.

That'd be awesome. Krypton was pretty schway in Man of Steel, so I'd like to see Snyder tackle thiissssss.

#23 Posted by Z3RO180 (6461 posts) - - Show Bio

Brainiac

#24 Posted by sagejonathan (1936 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd like Lex Luthor done right. Braniac, Bizarro, or Doomsday for Man of Steel 3.

#25 Edited by Black_Claw (2972 posts) - - Show Bio

Brainiac. Heck, maybe both him and Lex can be the villains of the sequel.

I was going to say Brainiac but you changed my mind. Anyways its between either Brainiac or Luthor for me. And if any hero appears in MoS 2 then it should be Martian Manhunter.

@rustyroy: Think that guy deserves his own movie, but unlikely to happen sadly.

@themanintheshoe: Agreed, he's very underrated character, I can imagine a JL without the Trinity but without MM its incomplete, he's the heart of JL.

#31 Edited by Mucklefluga (2549 posts) - - Show Bio

Its too soon for another alien. Gotta be Lex!

#32 Posted by novi_homines (1338 posts) - - Show Bio

I would like Lex to be the main villain, just seems right. Also, I would like Bruce Wayne to make a cameo somewhere in there. Whether it be at a Lex fund-raiser, or whatever rich people do. Lol, but i'll like to see bruce wayne in there somehow. It would make the fans go nuts.

#33 Posted by Jawshco (242 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Superman cares about collateral damage, but this MOS was a very "rookie," Superman. I don't think he knew how to stop it, nor how to save those people w/o doing what he did to stop Zod. But he needs to learn that in the next movie. He needs to take a stand against bringing damage Earth against Brainiac, and take a stand against killing by stopping Lex without brutal force. That's the movie I'd like- basically, the next level of development of this Superman. So by movie 3 or JL, he's the noble hero we all know.

#34 Posted by FoxxFireArt (3554 posts) - - Show Bio

Braniac could be interesting, but how many times will they have Superman defending the planet from destruction? They can't keep obliterating Metropolis every film.

The idea of the Kryptonian colonies does open the door to Supergirl. I found it kind of odd that ALL the colonies killed each other.

#35 Edited by IronAngelX (188 posts) - - Show Bio

I would like to see Lex, Supergirl, and Brainiac. I think Lex should be praised as a hero for the rebuilding of Metropolis (with a mention of thanks to Wayne industries donation). I think Supergirl and Brainiac could go hand-in-hand for the film (not literally lol).

#36 Posted by TDK_1997 (14704 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd love to see Parasite,Metallo or Mongul.It would be good to see Brainiac also but I'm not such a big fan of him.

Brainiac

#39 Posted by Birthright (142 posts) - - Show Bio

The reason why I feel that it should be Brainiac is because Superman will already have a negative impact on the world after the alien attack and he will have more haters than supporters. Add Lex Luthor to that and putting the public on his side in the second movie after a Brainiac attack and it creates a perfect plot.

#40 Edited by Josesavila3 (3 posts) - - Show Bio

A raw UNCHAINED Kara, with action scenes like Faora (who was amazing in MOS) would be awesome! Heard she was in the Walmart exclusive digital comic.

if they introduce supergirl they can use it as a gateway for both brainiac and darkseid

#44 Edited by Uncanny_Doom (436 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Lex would work best for the second movie, and Brainiac would be good for a third.

I don't really want to see anymore villains with problems that can be solved through a fist fight. I feel it would be too similar to the first movie if they did that.

I'm pretty sure that Morrison gave us a pre-Brainiac story, Superman's first encounter with the being. What we saw was just his probes, while the actual being (the one we know) was elsewhere. It makes sense because Superman encountered "Brainiac" many many times before Johns' version showed up in pre-New 52 continuity. I think at least that much was saved in the reboot.

#46 Edited by StMichalofWilson (3765 posts) - - Show Bio

I've said my piece already. Brainiac played by Benedict Cummberbatch! Nuff Said!

#47 Posted by Josesavila3 (3 posts) - - Show Bio

Intro Supergirl/Lex in an Earth based story. Maybe fighting less alien second class villians.

MOS3 use the momentum from Kara to open a Brainiac movie, that ends with a few Darksied hints. Meanwhile showing that there are other important people doing odd things: Wayne, Allen, and an island with Amazons?

Use those Darksied whispers to generate the Justice League movie.

#48 Posted by JairamGanpat (952 posts) - - Show Bio

PARASITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make the Man of Steel fear for his own safety for the first time on the big screen without a Kryptonite plot device.

#49 Edited by Vulshock (137 posts) - - Show Bio

They could even tie him to some of the first movie. Maybe he collected one of Kryptons outposts or at least tried to which caused the destruction of the camps / outposts.

@stmichalofwilson: That would be really cool. He certainly has the face for it and with some makeup he could look terrifying.

I would like a Lex Luthor/Brainiac team-up movie. Lex finds out aliens like Superman exist. Goes out of his way to build a worm hole machine to find more alien weaponry and instead ends up finding brainiac causing Brainiac to come to earth. Honestly I would like Lex to just be in the background not the front villain. The guy playing with everything behind the scenes to try to get people to hate Superman. Also, though it's unlikely since it wasn't mentioned in flashbacks, I'd like Lex and Clark to have some kind of childhood connection to each other. My favorite stories for Lex have always been when he was actually part of Clark's childhood growing up. If they just went with the Birthright version of it I'd be super happy.
