We don't know for sure that Lex will be the villain. I'm hoping for Brainiac or somebody.
AMEN!!!

Lex overkill.
Origin story or not, Lex doesn't have to be THE main bad guy. Lex could just be an antagonistic character the first movie. How about a Kryptonian bad guy to lead. I'm fine with Zod or Brainiac.

Afterall Joker isn't in every Batman film. Iron Man didn't lead with Mandarin and Green Lantern isn't using Sinestro first.

My vote is for Teri Hatcher as LoisShe is still hot. Just kidding, yeah Lois is type A. Anyway Biel or Kunis are probarly my favorite from the frontrunners.They are smilller age as Cavile so they would be good choice as Lois.

"500 Days of Summer" proved to me that Zooey would be an amazing Lois Lane. I've been harping on this since last year lol.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Regarding Luthor...I will say as I've stated a few times that I wouldn't mind if he was in the background. His presence and influence felt and hinted at but we don't actually see him until the second movie. I could see Brainiac being used as the primary villain in the first movie. The fact is though if this is an origin story Lex will most likely be used and featured prominently. No doubt they will maybe have the friendship between Clark and Lex which has been restored in the comics since Infinite Crisis and since Greg is around...this is another movie that I would love to see you write the adaption for

I would be surprised if we didn't see Lex Luthor in some capacity.

I agree. Like Batman begins, have Luthor be teased at the end.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Since CotIE, Lex has grown from being a just a villain into a supporting player in the Superman comics. I think this is partially evidenced by him being included as main character in the last three Superman TV series as opposed to being a villain-of-the-week.* I would be surprised if they didn't include him.

However, at this point, anything can happen (much like, at last report, Jameson isn't appearing in the Spider-Man reboot). Much of it depends on the story, I suppose if Lex is involved or needed.

That being said, if they do include Lex, that doesn't mean he is a villain in the movie. Like the post-crisis Lex, he was more of a general antagonist than outright villain (at least at first).

That being said, if they do include him and as I have mentioned before, I would love to see Faran Tahir get the role. It is not because he is bald, but from the few roles I have seen him in, I think he can do Lex justice. I don't honestly see that actually happening (I have a feeling they would go for a "bigger" name), but I can wish.


* I realize that John Shea was only in one season of L&C, but that was more to do with Shea wanting to relocate back closer to his family rather than the producers intentionally wanting to write his character off.
