A new foe for Superman sequel

Sounds like Kevin Spacey won’t be doing time with the clippers any time soon.

Latino Review (who always have their finger on the pulse when it comes to WB’s super-properties) reports that Spacey’s Lex Luthor will likely not return for the long-gestating follow-up to Bryan Singer’s “Superman” reboot. Instead, the studio wants another famous Superman villain to go chest-to-chest with the big guy – and they’ve a few to choose from; there’s Darkseid, General Zod (played famously by Terrence Stamp in Dick Donner’s “Superman” and “Superman II”) and Doomsday, to name but a few.

Luthor mightn’t be completely out of the picture, literally-speaking, but if he is in there, it’s likely his appearance will be fleeting – and thus, nobody’s going to force Spacey to shave his head for five-minutes of screen time.

Apparently Warner Bros are hearing all sorts of pitches right now from prospective “Superman II” writers.
