Plot Details for Bryan Singer’s The Man of Steel?

Someone who knows someone at Warner Bros. has told the guys over at film ick about the “pitch” that Bryan Singer did for Warner Bros. that got them so excited they decided to greenlight the sequel to the underwhelming “Superman Returns” despite less-than-spectacular box office numbers. There are SPOILERS aplenty, so don’t read on unless you have to know. Film ick says they trust their source, but since we don’t know who their source is, we’ll have to call this one RUMOR ONLY and go with that. Read on…

Here are the interesting tidbits from Singer’s pitch for “The Man of Steel”:

There’s a new Kryptonian character coming to Earth as a result of Supes’ pilrgimage to Krypton that took place before Returns.

Lex makes a deal with “a new villain” (I read this as new to the films, not new to the mythos, and indeed I have some idea who it is…) in order to have Superman eradicated. This villain double crosses Lex and takes over Lexcorp (yep – sounds like Brainiac to me too). What’s more, Jason is a key part in the plot to trap Superman and…

Poor little Jason. He’s snuffed out. That should have some of you cheering, you fiends.

The last part is kind of hard to take. Wait, they’re going to kill off the KID??? Wow, that’s hardcore, Bryan, hardcore…

Take it for what you will.
