Superman’s Only Villain?
In keeping with the upcoming movie The Dark Knight, the next Superman movie will be titled Man of Steel. The villain…? Aww, you guessed it.
Kevin Spacey told Variety he will be back as Lex Luthor in Superman: Man of Steel. He met with director Bryan Singer and firmed up the deal to star in the movie, which is expected to feature a Michael Dougherty (Superman Returns, X-Men X2) screenplay. Hopefully, Superman: Man of Steel will sport an original plot and not be simply a warmed-over third-rate remake of a previous effort. C’mon, Warners, we’re talking about the family jewels here!
Production is expected to begin next year with a 2009 release.
