Two Villains? August 15th, 2007

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.
