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.

    I think if they cannot get Brandon Routh and Mark Singer to do the sequel, They should not make a sequel. Why, Mess with the chemistry we had in the first film. Without the same director the movie will do worse at the box office.

    This article doesn’t show the rest of the details in the original news on this. It leaves out that Lex ESTABLISHES Lexcorp. Anyways, if Singer does do the film this plot sounds fantastic.

    UGH you movie writers are terrible! BRING SOMETHING NEW TO THE TABLE!!!!!!! No LEX No more Krytonians!!!!! All this cool computer stuff and technology and Brianac is all you can come up with. Surprise us man, give us something we’re never seen let superman fight darkside let him fight someone worth it nto another movie where krytonite make him weak and Kumar comes and kicks the craps out of him. If your going to make Superman bleed do it with someone liek doomsday. See that couldn’t been a good trilogy to do start with superman coming back and doomsday following him followed by a fight then his death bring him back by the end and leave it hanging for another villian like Brainiac or Darksied that wayyou would sucked EVERYONE in and earger to see the next one. But no it was another dumb love story and he had a kid ugh. Can you get me on the team and let me write for you.

    i loved superman returns, and i hope they make new ones. i just hope jason isnt snuffed out. ive heard rummers. i had such plans for him. at the end of superman returns i had most of the next movie figured out. and that involved keeping the kid. what i really hope for is that lois’s fianze or whatever dies, leaves, or whatever, just drop him, make him find out its not his kid. what i also think should happen is that lois finds out who clark really is. have clark get hit with a lazer and have lois watch. a big lazer, you know, like those ones that could desinagrate a human. but it wont clark. see? if more people like me did these movies, EVERYONE would be happy, except for the critics and those uptite people with sticks up their asses.

    Yeah it was so weird I was all pumped for the move ( alot where) then he comes up with Lex just wanting “LAND” goes off of 2 and makes him have a kid which was lame. I dont get it Smallville has better writing in any given show.
