Well it seems Warner bros. is trying to re-boot the re-boot of Superman Returns.
Ya, a lot of people didn't like the movie and while, yes, it could have been shaved down a half hour by getting rid of Lois Lanes Super-baggage of a child, I liked it.
I'm a big fan of the Donner films and felt this stood pretty well to erase the migraine inducing Superman 3 and 4.
That said, WB is trying to get Zach Snyder, the new guy in charge of Big Blue, to pick a villain, and unfortunately, execs at the studio think they know best, which we ALL know by now, is NEVER right. (Jonah Hex?)
So who do you think they're choosing?

Zod.

Ya, that's right. The same guy from the second movie.
Oh, and the same guy from Smallville.
(Did you know the voice of Smallville's Superman is the actor who played Zod in the second Superman movie?)

See, in a movie execs eyes, if something works, you completely overkill it until you've tied it to a stake, burned it then salted the Earth where it lays.
(I give you the 8 Deadpool titles as an example)

So Week in Geek is asking, which one of the 3 big heavy hitters would YOU pick?

Week In Geek


BIZZARO
The current comic book version of Bizarro is a failed clone of Superman who possesses all of Superman's powers and none of his intellect. Screenwriter Robert Gordon ('Galaxy Quest') once took a crack at a Bizarro-centric Superman film, a spec script for a wild action-comedy called 'Bizarro Superman,' so it's good to know that there's someone out there in Hollywood who appreciates the character. The pea-brained Bizarro is a widely recognizable Superman villain thanks to his many appearances over the years in cartoons and video games, fitting the bill nicely as someone easily marketable to the masses.


BRAINIAC
For a while, it looked like we'd be seeing Tim Allen as Brainiac facing off against Nicolas Cage as Superman in a Tim Burton-directed, Kevin Smith-scripted Superman movie. Sometimes, it's good news when a project dies. The bad news is that no film has touched Brainiac since then, and he's more than ripe for a big screen debut. This sinister living super-computer has been a thorn in Superman's side dating back to 1958, and, next to Lex Luthor, is easily Superman's Number Two baddie.


DARKSEID
Arguably the least recognizable villain on this list is the one that the diehard comic book fans want to see onscreen the most. Darkseid seeks to subjugate every living being in the universe through a powerful cosmic theory called the Anti-Life Equation, and he believes that human beings are the key to that equation. Unlike other Superman villains, Darkseid is completely devoid of basic concepts like compassion or honesty. He's a hulking, coldly calculating despot of pure evil, with a back story that's probably too convoluted to easily translate to film. This would be a screenwriter's most challenging Superman villain, taking DC Comics' most cruel alien conqueror and finding a way to work him into a movie while keeping Darkseid uncomplicated and believable to some degree.

So who do YOU think among these 3 should they take into consideration?
