These are my ideas for the Superman reboot, Man of Steel, and it's sequels. I would scrap everything already planned for Man of Steel (except the actors) and start over. Here they are:
Man of Steel
Have it like Superman: the Animated Series, where Brainiac is the main computer system on Krypton. When Jor-El says it will explode, Brainiac says it won’t. Later, Brainiac reveals to Jor-El that he was right, and that Brainiac’s plan was to absorb all of Krypton’s knowledge, and let it explode. Jor-El sends his son to Earth. After that, go through his normal origin story where he is adopted by Jonathan and Martha Kent. He discovers his powers as a kid. Then, he gets a job at the Daily Planet, where he meets Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Perry White, all those people. Later, Lex Luthor announces that he has a meeting with an alien called Brainiac. He convinces the World Leaders to give Brainiac information of the Planet. Later, Superman finds out Brainiac’s true intentions to absorb all of Earth’s knowledge and then destroy it. Superman finds out what happened to Krypton, and defeats Brainiac. He reveals to the world Brainiac’s true intentions. Afterwards, there is a small amount of alien language on a Lexcorp computer, which is ignored.
The Man of Steel Returns
Luthor, humiliated by Superman after the results of the first movie, clones Superman. The result, is Bizarro. However, they’re both too evenly matched. So, Luthor goes to prison and gets John Corben an early release. He pays him 20,000,000 dollars to become Metallo and kill Superman. Powered by kryptonite, Metallo and Bizarro almost kill Superman, but lose due to not working well together. They take one last chance to kill Superman. They kidnap Lois Lane to use her as bate. Superman goes to fight them on a boat. The boat is destroyed, causing Metallo to fall to the bottom of the ocean. Superman then convinces Bizarro that Luthor is using him. Bizarro turns on Luthor, and it is unknown whether either survived.
The Man of Steel Continues
Mercy Graves has taken control of Lexcorp after Luthor’s death in previous movie. However, Luthor returns and secretly uses Lexcorp’s technology to open a portal to the Phantom Zone. He takes General Zod to Earth and lets him build up the same powers as Superman. He promises General Zod world domination if he gives Luthor Superman’s head on a platter. Zod defeats him and takes him to Luthor. Just as Zod is about to leave, Luthor throws kryptonite at him, turning on him. Luthor hooks them up to a machine that would let him absorb their powers. However, Brainiac takes control of the machine and sends Zod back to the Phantom Zone. It ends on a cliff hanger ending…
Superman: The Man of Tomorrow
Brainiac has completely taken control of Lexcorp computers. He builds himself a new body using Lexcorp technology. Luthor offers a deal with him to give him the most advanced technology on Earth in exchange for sparing him. Luthor introduces him to alien technology that can recreate itself from any material. The two of them then combine into one being, taking control of the entire city, growing across the planet, in order to destroy it. When Superman shows up to stop him, the Luthor/Brainiac combination creates robot duplicates of every super villain Superman has faced in this trilogy. Superman finally defeats him, and destroys every piece of Brainiac. He even gets people to go through every ounce of Lexcorp computers and eliminate any remains of Brainiac.
The Man of Steal vs Apocalypse
An alien named Orion comes to Earth to warn Superman about an attack from Darkseid. Superman prepares the Earth for battle against Apocalypse. Apocalypse’s forces arrive to attack Earth. Superman wipes out one army completely. Darksid sends Kalibak to kill Superman. Superman just narrowly defeats him. Apocalypse forces continue to attack Earth. They start to drill holes to tap the Earth’s core and create fire pits in the Earth. Superman stops them and decides to take the fight to Darkseid. He travels to Apocalypse to defeat Darkseid. The two of them have an epic battle, with Superman winning. Superman then drives the rest of Apocalypse’s forces off of Earth, winning the war.
What does everyone think? I put this on my website, so I figured I'd put it here.
