Talk has already surfaced about another Superman movie and which villains will be included. I am just hoping they don't turn this into a Batman and Robin type of movie franchise. If Mr. Mxyzptlk is seriously going to be the villain, that little imp from the fifth dimension, I hope they make him as menacing as some of his newer incarnations. I am going to have to go through my back issues to find some, but he can be downright scary with his powers if he wanted to be. He is like Q in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Maybe they could play up that angle because Q was a fan favorite.
I love how this article uses "Wrath of Khan" as a verb! I might have to use this in class.
Singer has said the next installment will be along the
lines of the second Star Trek film, and Dougherty said
the comparison is apt. "I think it's going to be a
more action-oriented film," he said. "Again, the easy
comparison to make was [X-Men] to X2, or Star Trek
[The Motion Picture] to Star Trek II. 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."
