It's funny-- in comics I always tired of yet more and more villains who had the physical capacity to fight Superman-- which of course culminated in Doomsday, which I always thought was a stupid gimmick. I always preferred those villains that could out-wit superman, which Luthor was the best of.
And yet in a movie, I actually find myself agreeing in that that special effects and action might be served with Supes in a toe to toe brawl with somebody.. hence my repeated suggestion of having Braniac or Luthor hatching a scheme, and contriving Bizzarro to physically deal with Superman.
Or just Brainiac would suit me.
It would potentially be very awesome to see Superman fight a mindless monster like Bizarro or Doomsday on film.
Bizzaro is too campy. I'd rather see Doomsday.
I would like to see the Eradicator\Superman. He was choice. Probably the most interesting non-reboot superman villain supes had.
Here is my idea for a Doomsday\Reign of the supermen movie storyline:
Set movie 5-7 years after Superman Returns...
Movie 1 (second Routh movie) Doomsday discovered by Lex Luthor, and unleashed. Doomsday VS supes, both die at the end
Movie 2 (third Routh movie) -reign of the supermen- Eradicator, Cyborg Superman, superboy (superman and Lois's son), but no Steel (Shaq demonstrated how lame that would be). Supes returns at the end of the movie in a power suit. Subdues eradicator, and temporarily beats Cyborg.
Movie 3 (forth Routh movie) Instead of the Warworld story arc, Cyborg is turns out to be working for Braniac. A weakend Supes, teams up with Eradicator, and his son to take on Braniac.
