MAN OF STEEL is stil a few months from its June 14th release date, but some heroic scoopmeisters have managed to gain some top secret spiolers from the flick just for us. While not entirely unexpected, CBM claims that Lex Luthor and a clandestine Arificial Intelligence project are alluded to in MOS, in the same fashion that Norman Osborn was carefully teased in The Amazing Spider-Man. WB is still minding their manners (and holding off announcing a sequel) until the Superman reboot offficially debuts.  BRAINIAC and LEX LUTHOR in MAN OF STEEL Sequel?But, assuming the flick is every bit the mind blowing blockbuster that a Zack Snyder & Christopher Nolan love child should be, then a sequel will be right around the corner.

Lex is a classic, albeit tired, standby in the world of Superman movies. He’s been part of 5 of them, and I don’t care how much of Nolan’s secret sauce you inject into a flick, if they plan to re-introduce Luthor, they need to create a completely new identity (no longer the real estate chasing hound dog!).

That where this Artificial Intelligence comes in.  It doesn’t take much imagination to asssume this contraption will be Brainiac. I’m hopeful that it won’t be, since Brainiac’s Kyptonian heritage provides a pretty fucking badass tale in its own right, but this spin on the classic origin story could introduce one of the cooler hybrids of recent memory: Lexiac!

Half Luthor. Half Brainiac. All meniacle/crazy/bald/shiny Superman killing machine.

    Is the first villian zod? aren’t most of the superman’s villians campy even Lex.
    I know its been done before but changing the race of a villian. I think if I was wrong that Zod’s the first villian he should be one of the movies. I would make Zod

    How is Brainiac campy?! Go read some comics. We need that kind of menace in a superman movie (along with parasite and metallo cameos)…assuming they’re saving Darkseid for JL (if it happens any time soon)

    They said Lex is working on an AI. That doesnt necessarily mean he created it. Maybe they will keep his Kryptonian heritage, and say he landed on Earth just like superman did. But Lex found him and had him on ice until technology advanced enough that they could use him.

    Brainiac normally doesn’t have a kryptonian heritage. Only in the Superman Animated Series have Brainiac been a product of Kryptonian engineering. Brainiac usually has ties with Krypton, but in almost all incarnations Brainiac is a Coluan (alien from the planet Colu). Read Superman: Brainiac. That book explains this.

    Brainiac, campy? As long as they stray away from the city shrinking scientist incarnation and use the dark, planet destroying, android Brainiac – then this is a character that will be essential to this trilogy.
