Brain over at the Blue Tights forums was lucky enough to bump into Mike Dougherty, screenwriter for Man of Steel. This is what he had to say,
I asked him if he was a part of the sequel because everything I have seen says Singer and Harris are writing the script and that he isn’t mentioned. He confirmed that he is writing it with the two just like the last picture. I then expressed to him that I was hoping the delays of Superman: The Man of Steel weren’t true. He said that they were on track and that the goal is still to have the movie out in the Summer of 2009. He seemed a little hesitant about it but did his best to try and reassure that it will get done by then. I asked if he could give any more info on the film. He responded, “There are TWO villains,” and he smiled.

Could it be Brainiac and Lex Luthor?
As much as I loved Kevin Spacey’s Lex Luthor, I’m a little Lex Luthored out! Lex has been in 4 out of 5 Superman films in past last 29 years (soon to be 5 out of 6). Lex Luthor isn’t in every issue of Superman comics ever published. Facing the same villan over and over again makes it a little old. It’s like your favorite sports team playing the same team every game of the season.
My 2 cents.
