You can't keep a good superhero down.

Warner Bros. is in negotiations with filmmaker David S. Goyer to develop a new Superman film, tentatively titled "Man of Steel,' that the studio could get to the big screen before their rights to the character expires in 2013, according to a report in Variety. The last 'Superman' film was 2006's disappointing 'Superman Returns,' directed by Bryan Singer and starring Brandon Routh as Superman, Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane and Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.

The last 'Superman' film was 2006's disappointing 'Superman Returns,' directed by Bryan Singer and starring Brandon Routh as Superman, Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane and Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.

Goyer has quite a sci-fi/comic book reputation in Hollywood. He wrote the screenplay for 'Dark City,' penned the 'Blade' series and reinvigorated Batman with 'Batman Begins' and 'The Dark Knight.' Most recently he co-created 'FlashForward' for ABC.

According to Variety, Goyer has a more action-packed story line idea for this edition, with Superman battling arch nemesis Lex Luthor and super-villain Brainiac. Neither 'Superman Returns' star Brandon Routh nor Singer are expected to return.

We're pretty tired of Lex Luthor hogging all the villain action in the Superman films. In addition to Brainiac, there's plenty of other creepy bad guys that the Man of Steel could fight. Have any suggestions for a big-screen evildoer? And who do you think should take on the 'Man of Steel' title role?
