One of the most anticipated films of the year is "Man of Steel," the new Superman reboot directed by Zack Snyder. In fact, it was named Most Manticipated Film at this year's Guys Choice
, premiering Wednesday, June 12 at 9/8c
Among the many reasons to get excited about the movie, one of them is the performance of Michael Shannon as General Zod. It's just perfect casting, which got us hoping that the film is successful enough to spawn sequels featuring Superman facing off against other members of his famous rogues gallery.
With that in mind, we decided to make the lives of the producers a little easier by not only selecting the villains for future installments of the Superman franchise, but casting the roles as well. If you happen to be one of those producers and you're reading this right now: you're welcome!LEX LUTHOR
Played By: Grumpy Cat
I don't know how this would work, but Grumpy Cat is the perfect fit for a villain whose primary superpower seems to be his ability to maintain an unflinching, 24/7 sourpuss.LOBOPlayed By: Danzig
In his own title he's a "hero" of sorts, but in almost every other book Lobo shows up in he's an antagonist. He doesn't mean well, nor is he misunderstood. He's just a hedonist consumed by his own wants and needs. This is pretty much the life story of Glenn Danzig.THE ULTRA-HUMANITEPlayed By: A CGI Monkey!Voiced By: George Takei
The Ultra-Humanite debuted almost a full year before Lex Luthor, making him not only Superman's first regular foe but also one of the first true super-villains in superhero comics. Sadly, this has yet to translate to an appearance in film. Originally just your run of the mill evil scientist, the Ultra Humanite eventually learned how to transfer his brain to different bodies, eventually settling on a big, albino ape. Those old comics were great. As for a sarcastic, intelligent voice for the creature, who would be better than George Takei?
Have any villains and actors in mind for future sequels? Let us know in the comments!
