I absolutely agree. DC's superheroes need to look spectacular on screen. If they aren't yet able to achieve the magnificent visuals required to amaze the audience, they really should wait until they can.
Certain characters have incredibly similar counterparts in the Marvel universe, though. DC had better hope Marvel doesn't produce a Namor the Submariner film first.
There are many potential on-screen supervillains within the Superman mythology. Metallo, Conduit, Darkseid, Parasite, and perhaps even the Intergang could be featured in this rebooted franchise. I would reckon the villains should not be the only challenges Superman must face, however. I feel more focus should be placed on the storytelling and the film's dramatic elements, rather than merely the character's heroic feats.
Everybody is aware he is virtually invincible and can prevent even the greatest disasters. One way to make him vulnerable and complex would be to have him fail to save lives and watch as the city around him crumbles. As a man learning to become a city's hero, he needs to be faced with difficult decisions and moral challenges.
