Re: What should the next Superman movie be?

However, one rule I would like to apply is No Kryptonite. Give Superman a villain he needs to use his powers to beat - say Doomsday or Darkseid.
Agreed. The existing movies are pretty uncreative when it comes to how to challenge Superman. You either have Kryptonite (Superman, Superman III, Superman Returns) or a villain with nearly identical powers to Superman, whether its other Kryptonians (General Zod & co. in Superman II), an evil twin (Superman III), or a partial clone (Nuclear Man in Superman IV. I think the only difference between him & Superman was that he couldn't function in darkness and that he had fingernails that made you really sick).

One idea that was in the J.J. Abrams script that might be worth stealing is Superman fighting a giant robot in Washington D.C.
