I take that to mean that SR was intended to be a direct sequel to Superman II
Or to something like Superman II. The specifics of SR don't precisely match up with either version of Superman II.

Well being a JJ fan (despite my distaste for STID), I think he probably would have made a really good Superman film. It would certainly be much more colorful and visually dynamic than either Singer's or Snyder's movie, I bet.
JJ wouldn't have directed it, though - he just wrote the script. McG or Brett Ratner were going to direct it.
Oh yikes. Well in that case, never mind!!

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

While a JJ/McG Superman movie sounds great in theory, the leaked script about a living Krypton and Lex Luthor being an evil Kryptonian just sounded horrible.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Hmm, looks like I might have been right about people putting the blame on Superman for Zod coming to Earth in the first place. Which I'm perfectly fine with, because in the real world you can be sure people would be suspicious or resentful of Superman's presence no matter how much good he did or didn't do.

And I like that Snyder is continuing to explore the idea in that way, instead of having everyone just automatically embrace him from the get go.

I'm glad that they will deal with the aftermath of the end of MOS. I didn't mind it, but it is a pretty big thing to ignore.

It gives Lex a perfect pivot point when it comes to the populace. They'd be silly to choose otherwise.

He can't just be bwaa-haa-haa'ing and be obviously evil.

One of the best modern day comic reinventions was to portray Lex as more Machiavellian than evil. He genuinely believes he is helping humanity by pitting himself against Superman. He is basically an intelligent version of Donald Trump.

I see Trump as genuinely believing that he does good, even though he is a basically evil man. His "hair" is just life imitating art from Gene Hackman's version of Luthor.

So, he's basically like 90% of villains

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I just wanted to interject real quick.

I know I've been a huge critic of MoS, I'm not going to repeat those criticisms, but I just want to say the fact that the new movie is going to directly address what happened in the climax of MoS goes a long way to making me interested in seeing this movie.
