Here comes new scoop on "Superman: The Man of Steel" which sure will raise speculations and heavy talks for some times ahead.
According to a user on BlueTights' The Planet Forum who happened to bump into the project's co-writer Michael Dougherty at the U.S. Capitol, the scribe has told him that there will be TWO villains whom the superhero has to face against. As one is clearly known to be none other than Lex Luthor, the question left is whether the other will indeed be Metallo or Brainiac as SupermanHomepage.com previously claimed.
Apart from the tidbit, Dougherty also eagerly informed that he and the filmmakers are moving on their track in developing the flick while stating that their goal is still to have the movie come out in the summer of 2009.
The follow-up to last year's "Superman Returns", "Man of Steel" had been hinted to be made even before its predecessor's debut in the United Kingdom. Deals to develop the movie was finally finalized in late October 2006 with Bryan Singer to again direct for Warner Bros. Pictures. It has also been said that the sequel will be on a tighter story and have bigger action sequences that "Returns" was considered to be lack of.
