10 elements from the Superman mythos we'd like to see in a movie
Will we ever see Darkseid, Braniac or Bizarro on the big screen?
We almost got a version of 1992's "The Death of Superman" storyline when Tim Burton saddled up to the material with Nicolas Cage in tow mid-decade. Given the concept materials that have since made their way out, we perhaps dodged a bullet on that one, but there is a lot to play with where the villain Doomsday is concerned beyond just the battle that saw Superman "killed." With all the obsession on the Kryptonian Zod in movies to date (including "Man of Steel"), Doomsday has intriguing, and prehistoric, Krypton origins, a being who exists as a result of being created, killed and cloned over and over again to the point that he is indestructible and hates all life, the agony of the repeated deaths recorded into his genes. And, of course, there is the opportunity for some really sweet brawling, which is something notoriously absent from the series (until this year's release, that is).
