No Lex in Supes 2?
Jan. 6, 2009
There was a report a while back that Kevin Spacey had already signed on to reprise his role as Lex Luthor in the proposed SUPERMAN sequel/possible reboot MAN OF STEEL so most of us thought that he'd once again be Kal-El's main antagonist with one or two other baddies thrown in for good measure. However, the folks over at "Latino Review" have learned that WB is currently hearing pitches from writers all over town with stories in which Luthor is not the villain but rather a new baddie from Superman's Rogues Gallery. Does that mean Lex is completely out and Braniac, Doomsday, Darkseid or whoever else is in? Or just that Lex will take a back seat to the bad guy as he did when Zod came after Supes during the Christopher Reeve era? It's unclear at this point but at least it means that WB is looking for a brand new take on the sequel/possible reboot that will hopefully not involve a ludicrous plan to kill off the entire planet to make room for land that can be sold to…aliens? Anyhoo, strike it back below, schmoes.
||If Doomsday can make it onto "Smallville", he sure as hell needs to be on the big screen. Just make Kevin Smith's SUPERMAN LIVES already! That had Braniac and Doomsday in it and it was awesome!
