Dougherty Talks Villain(s) in "Superman Returns" Sequel

by | January 19, 2007 | Comments reports that screenwriter Michael Dougherty, in an interview with Sci Fi Wire, dropped a tantalizing hint as to who filmgoers can expect to see pitted against the Man of Steel in the sequel to "Superman Returns."

Or maybe he didn’t. Actually, all Dougherty did was smirk and say "Maybe" when asked about the possibility of multiple villains making appearances in the next "Superman" film — but in the land of fervent film speculation, that translates to "You better believe it."

Will we see the Wrath of Luthor?

Dougherty also continued the parallels drawn by director Bryan Singer between the next "Superman" and the second installments in the "X-Men" and "Star Trek" series, saying:

"I think it’s going to be a more action-oriented film…I mean, I know that Bryan has said he’s going to ‘Wrath of Khan’ it, and by that he means, ‘Let’s take what we’ve already established — we’ve gotten that out of the way — and let’s just make it shorter, tighter and more action-packed."

So start your wild guessing: Who’s going to try and wipe that spitcurl off Brandon Routh’s forehead when next we see Krypton’s favorite son on the big screen?
