‘You really have to look outside of Earth’: Zack Snyder wanted to tease Brainiac in Man of Steel as fans want Daniel Craig to play the villain against Henry Cavill’s Superman


It’s Fascinating How the DCEU Would Have Unfolded Had Zack Snyder Chose to Film a Live Steel man next instead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. David S. Goyer was commissioned to write a sequel to the 2013 blockbuster the same month it came out, only to have it be revealed shortly after to be the crossover that fans had been hoping to see for years instead. .

According to Zack Snyder, Brainiac was considered the villain of Man of steel 2. On June 14, 2013, Steel man hit theaters, kicking off the DCEU, which currently includes films based on characters such as Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Suicide Squad. Despite this, no official sequel to Steel man was made, and Warner Bros. chose instead to rename man of steel 2 as Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Snyder then began work on an epic five-part story that would expand into Justice League and its future sequels.

Brainiac was created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino and debuted in Action comic #242 in July 1958. The character is one of Superman’s most recognizable adversaries, second only to Lex Luthor. Despite his fame, the character never made it to the big screen. The character was originally intended for Superman 3 before being kicked out.

He was also an integral part of Kevin Smith and Tim Burton’s Superman Lives treatment, which never saw the light of day. Although he hasn’t starred in a movie, the character has appeared on television several times, as well as in the DC Animated Universe. Of Smallville (played by buffy the vampire slayer former James Marsters), and most recently as a major villain in the short-lived Syfy series Krypton, BRainiac is no stranger to fans of DC’s live-action comics.

Zack Snyder disclosed plans to employ Brainiac in a sequel to Steel man in an interview. Snyder didn’t say if it was the original concept before man of steel 2 became Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice or if it would have come after Justice League. The 300 director said,

“We talked about a Brainiac movie…I just think it’s better to give Superman those alien challenges because I think you have to be careful with — other than Lex Luthor, because, of course, you have to keep going with Lex, because Lex is his real nemesis – but I think you really have to look outside of Earth for challenges for him because of how powerful he is.

Brainiac’s negotiations seemed to have taken place early in the development of the sequel. Man of Steel 2 was announced before the first film was released in theaters, but at the time of the film’s release, the studio chose to focus on establishing the Justice League rather than a typical Superman sequel.
