No reports of Darkseid which I why I believe Broccoli referenced "Smallville Season Ten" which seems like the villain for the finale season will be Darkseid...and that article I referred to before did not indicate Darkseid. Only Luthor and Brainiac. We'll have to wait of course for further news about the plot and casting.
Beyond Antares was the one who was hoping for Darkseid.

Hopefully Nolan doesn't try to impart the same sense of 'realism' on the Superman franchise as he did Batman.

Re: SUPERMAN (2012)

I really don't care for Darkseid as a villain. I like the idea of Lex & Brainiac...maybe a lesser know villain thrown in just for fans.

JMHO.

I think once casting is out the way...this will put us all at ease.

As long as it comes out before the 21st. I think the whole world has plans that day.

Isn't that the day the whole universe gets re-booted?

Ah, so we'll have our own post-crisis.

I can get behind that.

Re: SUPERMAN (2012)

Having Brainiac in the film will satisfy the over-the-top CGI requirement that seems to be prevalent in today's movies. But I think it would be a good idea to have more than one villain. Despite the massive camp in Superman 2, having the Kryptonians and Luthor together really jazzed it up.

Still, 2012 seems like a long time to wait. I'd rather they bring back the old serials. Have 45 minute mini-adventures that come out every 6 months or so attached to other movies.

Nowadays those are called "webisodes" . . . or television.

Yeah I never understood the appeal of Darkseid either. I get the appeal of wanting to pit Superman against a god, but all that other stuff with the alternate dimension and Granny always bored the crap out of me on the animated series.

I think Eion Bailey might have a shot. He was a runner-up for Nolan's Batman and he's been thrown around for Superman quite a few times in the past as well.

I could be in error, but didn't the original Superman movie debut during the winter holiday?

Re: SUPERMAN (2012)

Nah, he'd be considered too old, especially if they want to make a series out of it. He'd be 36 by the time the movie comes out. If anything, the oldest they would go would be ~30, like when Bale was cast as Batman (Bale was 31 in 2005).
