Sci Fi Wire quotes Tim Kring here about the upcoming season: "There's a couple new villains. We're doing 11 episodes in a row that start on Sept. 24. And somewhere in that run of episodes we're going to introduce a very scary villain. At the end of last season we gave in the season finale a premonition of someone who is a very scary villain out there, who has invaded the dreams and nightmares of this character on our show named Molly Walker, who can locate people just by thinking about them. [We] teased the idea that there was another villain out there. And the audience can expect to see him somewhere in the first run of episodes."

Superman: The Man of Steel

Superhero Hype reports that a member of the The Planet Forum got a chance to meet the co-writer of the sequel Michael Dougherty and asked him about the sequel: "I asked him if he was a part of the sequel because everything I have seen says [Bryan] Singer and [Dan] Harris are writing the script and that he isn't mentioned. He confirmed that he is writing it with the two just like the last picture. I then expressed to him that I was hoping the delays of Superman: The Man of Steel weren't true. He said that they were on track and that the goal is still to have the movie out in the Summer of 2009. He seemed a little hesitant about it but did his best to try and reassure that it will get done by then. I asked if he could give any more info on the film. He responded, 'There are TWO villains,' and he smiled."
