Brandon could possibly attract and/or inspire other evil versions of superheroes.
Who knows how many other people in this world may have the same idea as Brandon, such as an "Evil Batman", as demonstrated in works like Nemesis?
  • A woman from a hidden society who journey's into the outside world...and deems it a hellhole whose people need to be put out of their misery due to the existence of Brandon (based on Wonder Woman). This woman might get redemption, learn to denounce Brandon without denouncing humanity, and become a hero, resulting in a final battle between her and Brandon.
  • A man without fear gains a great alien weapon sent to Earth to combat Brandon...and promptly destroys everything around him with no regard for what will happen due to his wild stunts with it (based on Hal Jordan). This man might eventually redeem himself and become a hero, helping the redeemed Wonder Woman expy fight against Brandon.
  • A wealthy businessman is injured in one of Brandon's rampages and has scientists convert him into a cyborg to save his life. Since this disfigures him, he weaponizes himself to take revenge on Brandon...with no regard for whoever gets killed in the crossfire (based on Iron Man).
    • This businessman might get help from people, they would help redeem him, and he would become a hero.
    • He would create an army of androids to help him protect people from Brandon and bring him down once and for all.
    • And he would even form a team comprised of himself and some war veterans, give them Powered Armor, and they would work together to take down Brandon and save the world.
  • The US government tries to create their own super being and selects a seemingly perfect patriotic soldier to become him. It's a success...and he turns out to be an extremist who tries to overthrow the US government so he can run the country the way he sees fit (based on Captain America).
  • A young man is mortally wounded and disfigured in an accident, and the only way to save his life is to turn him into a cyborg. The loss of his humanity drives him insane and he goes on a rampage (based on Cyborg).
  • Another Superman Expy, who uses his powers to rape millions of women.
  • Regarding the aforementioned "Evil Batman," this would be his backstory: A boy sees his parents murdered by a mugger in an alley-full of rage, he pulls out his pocket knife and stabs the mugger to death. At that moment, he realizes how good killing that man felt, and as such devotes his life to making murder an art form; he travels all over the word, learning numerous martial arts to make his body the ultimate natural killing machine, and studies various sciences and arts to fashion the most state-of-the-art murder weapons and to learn how to make every scene look like an accident.
    • Alternatively, Villain!Batman could blame society for the deaths of his parents, so he dedicates the rest of his life to killing society to avenge his parents.
      • Or, even better, both evil versions of Batman can co-exist in the Brightburn Universe.
    • These evil versions of superheroes might from their own Legion of Doom.
  • A pedophile gains the ability to transform into a young boy and also gains Flying Brick and electricity powers, all to make it easier for him to get close to his victims. (A creepy reverse version of Shazam).
  • A man in Japan gains incredible chi-based energy projection powers along with chi-based superhuman strength, speed durability, and leap, superhuman senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch, superhuman immune system and metabolism, self-sustenance, and slowed-down aging, and rapes thousands of Japanese women including a Chi-Chi Expy (Goku).
  • A killer robot who can take the form of a balloon-like robot, a humanoid butler-like robot, and a dragon-like robot. He would be created by a couple of Mad Scientist teenage brothers who also happen to be fascists who want him to take over a city so they can force Japanese culture down that city's throats (based on Baymax).
  • A deranged comic book fanboy who holds a grudge on his former idol gains the power to transform into a kaiju monster... (Based on Fredzilla.)
  • A young woman creates a purse that can summon any weapon she wants.... and she uses it to get revenge on the killer who murdered her technology-savvy boyfriend, not caring about who gets caught in the crossfire. (based on Honey Lemon.) This woman might redeem herself somehow and become a hero.
  • A man with a Flying Brick power-set who started as a caring man who compassionately helped his fellow man by using his powers covertly, but unfortunately his similarly-powered wife goes mad with power since she realized she could not handle being a housewife and murders their son and the man's best friend.
    • After killing his wife, the man slowly starts going insane due to guilt towards himself, regret over what happened, and anger at his now-dead wife, becomes a nihilist and a heavy drinker, and due to his physiology, the drinking somehow enhances his powers further.
    • He does not get literally drunk, but his nihilism and growing madness leads to him becoming not caring about other people anymore and metaphorically drunk with power and he now wants more physical impact for his powers to bring, doing anything to become stronger (based on Hancock, except instead of going from literally drunk to literally sober, he goes from morally sober to becoming drunk with power).
    • His former wife may come back, either as a super-zombie who still retains her Flying Brick powers that she had in life or she simply becomes more powerful that before (Based on Mary, also from Hancock).
  • All around the world, people start manifesting otherworldly powers, causing them to become hated and feared by the rest of society. The newly powered humans proceed to use their abilities to violently fight back and ensure their safety by any means necessary. (aka "What if the X-Men had been founded on Magneto's ideals?"). Some of these powered humans might find redemption and become heroes, whereas other powered humans might stay villains. Unfortunately though, it will still be played for horror, because elements of PTSD-related and guilt-related psychological horror will be a recurring theme.
  • A corrupt private detective with magical powers who takes bribes from the supervillains (Based on John Constantine).
  • A group of time-travelling rapists who use their eccentric personalities to lure in victims (Based on The Doctors, from 1-13).
  • A group of time-travelling rapists who are heavily implied to be different alternate versions of the same person (Another group of Expies of The Doctors, from 1-13).
  • A group of angelic-looking gods who live in a heavenly looking planet have established a fascist dictatorship in their planet and try to expand their iron fist ruling to other planets. (Based on The New Gods).
  • A Neo-Nazi who gains Superman-like powers (Hey, Brandon can't be the only evil Superman Expy!!)
  • A Neo-Nazi who obtains Batman-like gadgets.
  • A Neo-Nazi woman with Wonder Woman-like powers (Again, nobody said their could not be more than one expy of the same character).
  • A man who gains superpowers with the activation of a watch goes into in-universe movies to recruit those movies' villains, with the intention of forcing his views on movies onto others (AKA What if Viewtiful Joe was a dictator?).
  • A woman who gains light manipulation and Flying Brick powers from a power-granting drug, and she is so addicted to the drug that she goes on rampages anytime she cannot get a "fix" of that same drug (AKA What if Starlight was addicted to the drug that granted her powers?).
  • A corrupt time-travelling celebrity superhero who takes bribes from supervillains to "look the other way" and even covertly murder other superheroes, and the supervillains take advantage of this superhero's ego (AKA What if Booster Gold was secretly evil?).
  • A young man with spider-like powers after being bitten by a radioactive spider is overly protective of his redhead girlfriend, killing anyone who is even remotely a threat to his aforementioned girlfriend (AKA What if Spider-Man was a Yandere?).
  • An alcoholic woman with superhuman strength, speed, durability, leap, agility, reflexes, and stamina in addition to superhuman immune system and metabolism and slowed aging gained her powers from a special drug, and she's falsely marketed by a corrupt pharmaceutical company as a mystical Amazonian warrior. She murders people to cover up the crimes of her company (AKA What if Queen Maeve was a straight-up villain instead of an anti-hero?).

If the movie is successful, it will give way to a Shared Universe featuring expies of characters from various comic book universes and superhero franchises, all of which are Played for Horror.

  • A man who turns into a lightning monster (based on Thor).
    • Alternatively, the character is Zeus, played straight. Not a monster based on Zeus, or a creature calling himself Zeus, but the actual in-universe Olympian god Zeus, in all his glory, showing that while a thunder god appearing in the modern age to defend humanity is cool in principle, the modern age has... different standards, and wouldn’t want to put up with Zeus’s arrogance, pride, and serial rapist tendencies, but wouldn’t have a choice because he’s the only thing standing between them and destruction, being capable of fighting off the other villains. He also expects to be worshipped and served by everyone he protects - so basically, he’s just another villain, he’s just ‘’slightly’’ more reasonable.
    • Alternatively, both evil versions of Thor could exist in the same universe; after all, what's wrong with having more than one expy (as long as both are well-written, of course)?
  • A female ace pilot who gains energy projection, flight, superhuman strength, speed, durability, and leap, superhuman senses of smell, touch, taste, sight, and hearing, as well as self-sustenance from an alien cube, and she willingly joins an alien empire that was trying to harness the powers of that same alien cube. She helps them commit genocide against different sapient alien species the aliens deem "inferior" using her powers (based on Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers, except she was not brainwashed into evil nor were her memories wiped and willingly joined the alien tyrants).
  • As an alternative idea for an evil version of Carol Danvers, a woman who is enhanced by Brandon's species and has her memory erased and discovers her past...but is unable to overcome her conditioning on her own and ends up killing all her old friends. The aforementioned superpowered woman might get character development and become a hero if somebody helps her snap out of the brainwashing.

  • A young Japanese-Korean Woman who was convicted for Yakuza-related crimes and is forced to join a Japanese superhero team and is granted a superhuman speed-granting armor.... and she betrays her teammates and proceeds to murder them and becames a female crimelord in the Yakuza (based on Go-Go Tomago from Big Hero 6. Think Comic Book!Go-Go Tomago if she chose to stay in the Yakuza.)
  • A team of military-based superheroes turn into super-vampires.... and they are lead by a vampire military general as they invade America (based on the Avengers).
  • A teen genius whose older brother was murdered so he uses his brother's last invention to get revenge, then decides to conquer the city (Based on Hiro from Big Hero Six). This teenage boy might get character development and become a hero.

  • A terrifying evil sorcerer (Doctor Strange).
  • A power-mad government agent obsessed with controlling other villains for his own personal gain (Nick Fury)
  • Another government agent who is a Loony Fan for the supervillains, and is eventually subjected to Came Back Wrong (Phil Coulson).
  • A shrinking man who enters people's body cavities and makes them explode from the inside. Another Horror Comedy. (Ant-Man) This shrinking man might redeem himself and become a hero.
  • A woman with the ability to drain others' memories, abilities, and souls through any physical contact, with none of Rogue's restraint. This young woman might get character development and become a hero.
  • A Nigh-Invulnerable woman who fused with a rat (Squirrel Girl). Yet another Horror Comedy. This woman might get character development and become a hero.
  • A fanatical ex-KGB agent serial killer with enhanced strength and speed (Black Widow). This ex-KGB Agent might learn to overcome her fanaticism and become a hero.
  • An angry veteran with mechanical wings who tries to overthrow the government because he believes it does not appreciate his sacrifices (Falcon). He might get over his grudge and become a hero.
  • A psychic woman who attempted to be a superhero, but ended up being subjected to a Mind Rape that left her as a bitter villain (Jessica Jones). This woman might learn how to redeem herself, and choose to do so, with the best part of her redemption being her becoming the hero that will use psychic mind tricks to take down the supervillain known as Brightburn.
  • An ex-con with bulletproof skin who tries to do good but finds that he can't overcome his criminal lifestyle (Luke Cage). He might find someone who can help him redeem himself, follows that advice, and becomes a hero.

  • A veteran who lost his family and now indiscriminately kills people in "revenge" (Punisher). He might find redemption and become a hero.
  • A motorcyclist who became a soldier of god but used his newfound powers for evil purposes (essentially a reverse Ghost Rider). This ex-soldier of god might get character development and become a hero.
  • A teacher who uses powerful mind control abilities to imprison his students and make these children act as his enforcers and personal army of sorts. When questioned, he just spins a sob story about how he's the victim of anti-mutated human bigotry. Intellectually, everyone knows this is a lie, but they are compelled by his power to believe it (Professor Charles Xavier). Some of his superpowered students develop resistance to his powers and form resistance groups to stop him. But, for an added layer of horror, this villain is half-right, in that anti-mutated human bigotry does exist in the Brightburn Universe, but his actions are certainly NOT helping matters at all. So in other words, his horrible deeds are making the anti-mutated human bigotry EVEN WORSE.
  • An elitist royal group of supervillains who deluded themselves into thinking that they are superheroes who enslave those who don't have superpowers (The Attilan Royal Family, though that's not that different from the original show).

(AKA What if the brainwashing of Wolverine and Wolverine's PTSD mentally broke him).
  • A woman gains Flying Brick powers, energy projection powers, and self-sustenance because her boyfriend gained the powers first and found a device that would give her similar powers. She also served in the US Air Force goes violently psychotic because of PTSD because of trauma from her Air Force missions and also because her boyfriend died during a clash between supervillains and superheroes, a superhero accidentally killing him (AKA What if Carol Danvers lost her mind like the First Blood novel's John Rambo?).

Her boyfriend is a young man with black hair and he is a Badass Normal with firearms skills that he learned from living in the streets, martial arts skills that he learned from a billionaire kung fu master, and a bulletproof helmet (A Battle Couple based on Rose Wilson and Jason Todd, if Rose Wilson and Jason Todd were ideal heroes instead of anti-heroes/anti-villains/villains).
  • A soldier who got back home, and unfortunately his family died due to being caught in the crossfire of a shootout between rival gangs. So he becomes a superhero to avenge his family using both his military skills and weapons he stole from some super-villains. (Based on Punisher except he is an ideal hero as opposed to an anti-hero.)
  • A cancer patient who volunteers for an experimental cure, which is so powerful he gains virtual immortality. He's a peace-loving guy, but when he sees Brandon/"Brightburn" on a rampage, he realizes that somebody has to step up to the plate to stop the young villain. His whole strategy is to be the "immovable object" to Brandon's "unstoppable force," taunting and making fun of Brandon in an effort to make him ragequit. He even breaks (or at least pushes really hard against) the fourth wall, turning to whatever cameras are pointing at him and making snide commentary. (Basically an Ideal Hero version of Deadpool.)
  • A superpowered cop who genuinely wants justice in the world and defends democracy as best as he can (Based on Judge Dredd. This expy will be an ideal hero as opposed to the Anti-Hero Judge Dredd.)
  • A former child actor and private detective who has touch-based mind-reading and uses this power to help warn people about supervillain attacks (AKA What if Mesmer from The Boys was an ideal hero instead of a cowardly anti-villain?).
  • A group of civilians who gain low-level superhuman physical characteristics from a drug made from a benevolent pharmacutical company (that also makes superhero comic books) use their powers and their skills from their careers as former federal agents to fight against the supervillains by either placing supervillains under citizen's arrest or killing supervillains (AKA What if the comic book versions of The Boys were ideal heroes instead of anti-heroes?).
  • A judge with low-level superhuman physical characteristics uses his powers and his knowledge to combat the supervillains (AKA What if Judge Dredd was an ideal hero?).
  • A dead Filipino man who was a heroic soldier in life comes back to life as a heroic hellspawn and uses his powers to combat the supervillains, evil demons, and corrupt angels (A Spawn Expy as an Ideal Hero, and this Expy happens to be Filipino).
  • A former police officer and former marine loses her husband who was a doctor and trauma surgeon after her husband was disintegrated by Brandon Breyer's laser vision. She uses her skills, abilities, and weapons she collects to combat the supervillains and later on finds biological potions that grant her various superpowers so that she can eventually combat Brandon Breyer (An Ideal Hero Expy of Rachel Cole-Alves, with a reference to Bioshock added to the mix).
  • A heroic Black man with Flying Brick powers and an additional power to summon tornadoes uses his powers to fight against supervillains, his main goal outside of superhero work being to help rehabilitate delinquents (AKA What if Hancock was an Ideal Hero instead of an anti-hero and was the one doing the rehabilitating instead of being rehabilitated?).
  • A young woman who can manipulate probability, and she's also a woman in a militia skilled in firearms, martial arts, and combat tactics. She uses her power of probability manipulation and her skills to combat the supervillains (AKA What if Domino was an Ideal Hero?).
  • A team of former criminals turn a new leaf, so the government grants them various superpowers using a variety of different causes, recruit them into a newly formed government strike team that will work directly for the President so that they can get their slates wiped clean, and all members of this team each have the main power to summon explosions granted to them by nanites (Basically, an Ideal Hero version of the Suicide Squad).
  • A team of mercenaries gain superpowers, so they become superheroes in an attempt to redeem themselves (X-Force as Ideal Heroes).
  • A Badass Normal superhero who has multiple weapons that can counter supervillains' powers and also has peak human agility and reflexes as well as martial arts skills. He has a letter X gimmick and later on becomes an Empowered Badass Normal in that he also temporarily empowers himself with various power-granting formulas (An Ideal Hero version of Red X with elements, with some elements of Bioshock protagonists added to the mix).

We will also get superhero versions of action movie main heroes and action movie supporting heroes.
Since the Brightburn Universe seems to be either "What if X had superhero elements?" or "What if superhero story was X" (eg. Super is basically "what if a psychopath and a worse psychopath decided to become amateur low-budget Batman and amateur low-budget Robin respectively?", Brightburn is basically "what if Superman was a horror movie serial killer?"), this would be a logical step. Guesses can be added here.
  • Two Canadian cops, a by the book Anglophone cop and a Franco-Canadian Cowboy Cop are granted superpowers by touching a mystical trophy won by a long dead hockey team. The Anglophone Canadian cop gets super-strength while the Franco-Canadian cop gets super-speed. They work together using their police skills and newfound superpowers to combat the supervillains, motivated by the fact that their police chief, who was the two cops' father figure, was murdered by Brandon Breyer before the two cops gained their powers (Basically what if the Canadian cops from Bon Cop Bad Cop had superpowers?).
  • A former Vietnam War veteran who struggled with PSTD was successfully treated by twenty four psychiatrists. During a party to celebrate his successful treatment, he reunites with his girlfriend, who still looks young despite living her young adulthood in the Vietnam War era (1954-1975), and she gives him a mystical drink that grants him immortality in that he cannot age, a healing factor, pain immunity, superhuman immune system and metabolism, self-sustenance, superhuman strength, speed, durability, and leap, and summoning and controlling zombies. After learning about Brandon Breyer's rampage, he summons his long-dead war buddies as sentient super-zombies, and they choose to join him on his fight against the supervillains. His girlfriend as his living Morality Chain and his last psychiatrist being his mentor are his main motivations for fighting the supervillains (Basically what if Rambo had superpowers?).
  • A man from a few years into the future is sent back in time to combat the supervillains. His powers are digital-based superhuman strength, speed, durability, leap, agility, and reflexes, gravity-based flight, telekinesis, technopathy, and clairvoyance, all powers that were downloaded into the Matrix through a devirtualization process that allows digital subjects to be brought into the real world and back, and vice-versa for organic world subjects. His girlfriend who has the same powerset and his mentor who also has the same powerset help him fight the supervillains (Basically what if Neo, Trinity, and Morpheous were superheroes and time-travellers?).
  • An American cop who took down a group of terrorists in a skyscraper gains the powers of superhuman strength, speed, durability, and leap from a chemical compound created by the benevolent scientist mayor of New York. This now-superpowered American cop uses his police skills and powers to combat the supervillains (Basically what if John Mc Clane from Die Hard had superpowers?).
  • A reformed hitman with superhuman speed uses both his power and his skills to combat the supervillains in order to avenge his dog and get his stolen car back (What if John Wick had a superpower?).

The BrightBurn cinematic universe will feature original superheroes and supervillains not based on pre-existing characters.
  • Of course, since the Bright Burn Universe really loves using Expies (eg. A Superman expy, a Lana Lang expy, Expies to the Kents, an expy of Lex Luthor, etc.), these original superheroes and supervillains will NOT be expies of established superheroes and supervillains, but they will be expies of superhero story supporting characters except the difference is that they have superhero-like powers and/or skills.
    • Which means that this WMG will overlap with the WMG about hypothetical expies of superhero story supporting characters.

There will be a Legion of Doom formed by BrightBurn and other supervillains, along with other supervillain teams
Possible names for Brandon's supervillain team:

Other supervillain teams:

  • The Tyrants. (These will be an evil version of the Teen Titans).
  • Chaos Guild of the World. (Justice Society of America).
  • Fear Squadron. (Doom Patrol).

Conversely, there will a Super Team formed by the Caitlyn Connor and other superheroes, along other superhero teams.
Possible names for Caitlyn's superhero team:
  • The Retaliators of Verity. (Legion of Doom and the Masters of Evil).
  • The Elite Eleven. (Sinister Six).

Other superhero teams:

  • The Redemption Alliance. (Heroic version of The Suicide Squad).
  • The Circus of Hope. (Circus of Crime).
  • The Masters of Good. (The Masters of Evil).

Possible monikers for Brandons fellow supervillains
Based on the post-credits scene featuring the Big T's rant and warning about villains. The following names are speculative and based on the physical chararistics.
  • "Half-man, half-sea creature": Harbor-Master
  • "Witch Woman": Ishtar
  • "Alien supervillain": The Martian Invader
  • "Black square with a question mark": Nightshade
  • "The man in the Crimson Bolt costume": The Madness (assuming that it's NOT Frank in the costume and instead an imposter).

Speculations for Caitlyn Connor's superhero identity
Based on a deleted post-credits scene featuring Caitlyn Connor getting a robotic replacement for her crushed hand, and becoming Brandon's future archnemesis.
  • Cybersoldier (assuming Caitlyn's mentality becomes more militant as she opposes Brandon. Also, she'll find somebody who can upgrade her cybernetics so that she won't be affected by Brandon's apparent technopathy.)

    Video Game Adaptation speculation 
Capcom will create a Brightburn video game.
Think Resident Evil with supervillains instead of monsters and zombies. The gameplay would be played from over-the-shoulder perspective. The player characters would be a normal human and a superhero with low-level superpowers caught in a supervillain takeover. They will fight against minions and mutants of supervillains and fighting said supervillains while trying to escape, similar to Leaving Megalopolis.

Alternatively, Rockstar will create a Brightburn video game.
Think Manhunt with supervillains instead of various gangs. The player characters would be two low-level superpowered superheroes trying their best to save as much civilians as they can during a rampage caused by Brandon Breyer and other supervillains. Logically, Brandon Breyer would be the final boss.

The company that created Cyberpunk 2020 will create a Brightburn tabletop RPG.
Think Cyberpunk 2020, just swap out the cyberpunk with Cape Punk and instead of futuristic enemies it's supervillains and their minions.

Sucker Punch Entertainment will create a Brightburn video game.
Think Infamous except M-Rated, more variety in superheroes and supervillains, and horror elements added to the mix.

Activision will create a Brightburn video game.
Think Prototype with even more superhero elements, but still maintaining the M-Rating, having a bit more horror elements, and having twice the blood and gore that Prototype has.


Brandon, if he lives to become a widely known threat, will prompt a Lex Luthor-esque Well-Intentioned Extremist to try and face him
This is less an idea for this movie, but for a potential follow-up, or even just an idea for a fanfic or something; a "Good Luthor" to Brandon's "Evil Superman" who may be the only one who could save the world, but will have to do drastic things to be able to do it. Essentially, the way Luthor is often portrayed as seeing himself.

Brandon was his race's religion's equivalent to an "antichrist"
This religion turns out to be right on the money, rather than paranoid madness.
  • Eventually, a heroic member of Brandon's species shows up to be the "Christ" metaphor, and as an Actor Allusion he will be played by Henry Cavill.

Brandon's whole species are Always Chaotic Evil

Alternatively, evil members of Brandon's species are at war with heroic members of his species.
Causing a sudden genre shift from horror to superhero deconstruction.

"Brightburn" is a stealth alien invasion movie
Superman was sent to Earth to save him from his home planet's destruction. If this movie is a deconstruction of that story, it makes sense that instead of a loving sacrifice by his biological parents, Brandon was sent to Earth for a very different, very scary, reason.

There will also be expies of villains as well, like villains turned good.

The film will have a Downer Ending.
Either Brandon will kill both his adoptive parents and succumb to his evil, or Mrs. Breyer will regretfully kill Brandon before he does something especially terrible.
  • Confirmed

Brandon will be a case of Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas

The girl who Brandon injured will grow up to be Brandon's Arch-Enemy
Due to having both been on the receiving end of Brandon's might, in addition with
the small fact that Brandon terrorizes and viciously murders her mother, who was rightfully angry at Brandon for harming her daughter. Also, this experience, in fact, provoked a Heel–Face Turn in her, going from a petty bully into a sympathetic superhero devoted to bringing BrightBurn down in a sequel (provided she survives this film).
  • She survives the film and a deleted scene showed her getting a cybernetic arm with a serious death glare.

This is actually a stealth DC movie, more specifically an Ultraman origin story.
And if the movie does well it will launch a Crime Syndicate movie series.

This is actually an alternate version on Superboy-Prime's origin
Subject to Adaptational Name Change.

Brandon is actually an extraterrestrial biological weapon that was disposed of by his species.
In addition to his regular abilities, Brandon was able to involuntary shapeshift to be physically and genetically indistinguishable from a human at birth.

Another film will have an Expy of Batman but with a serial killer
The Brightburn universe will have the expy of Batman. The expy of Batman will be a serial killer instead. The expy of Alfred will be a killer butler.
  • So would that be the Tim Burton Batman or the DCEU Batman?
    • Eventually, this evil version of Batman will team up with Brandon and they will form a Legion of Doom.

If Brandon survives the film, his origin will be a dark take on the Super Hero Origin
Similar to origins like Spider-Man, Brandon could ultimately cause something that leaves even him horrified, and realizes that Being Evil Sucks, leaving him a Tragic Monster who's Trapped in Villainy.

Half of the scenes from the trailers won't be in the final movie
Hey, blame
Slender Man!

Brandon will attempt to use his powers for good... and get rejected for it
Given Brandon's line that he "wants to do good", and his overall Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds portrayal, it's possible that Brandon will try and use his powers to do good... however, all his attempts at doing good will be greeted with fear and horror by its intended recipients. This will contribute to his Start of Darkness; he decides, if everyone treats him like a monster, that's what he'll be.

This film will appear in the DC Extended Universe
As being bankrolled by Lex Luthor in order to smear Superman.

Brandon's fall to evil will be entirely his choice.
Eventually, either he will admit or someone will realize that Brandon has just been using what his bullies did to him as an excuse to do whatever he wants and that his Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse.

In their natural state, Brandon’s species are shapeshifting Eldritch Abominations

There will be a spin-off television show that explores the effect of superhumans on the Brightburn Shared Universe.

Brandon is one of the fragments of the Plutonian's essence
A benign fragment landed in our world and inspired two boys to write a comic. The fragment that landed in this film's world, on the other hand, has all the nasty bits.
  • If that's the case, one can only hope that Brandon didn't also gain the Plutonian's Reality Warper abilities. And if he did, that he never finds out he has them.

Brandon will be defeated by his Kryptonite Factor.
Brandon is basically a Superman Expy. That means that, in addition to having all of Supes' powers, he'll have all of Supes' weaknesses too. Maybe, at the climax of the film, the Breyers' and the cops will stumble upon it, and discover what it does to Brandon.

As for Brandon, he probably spent so much time focusing on discovering and testing the limits of his powers, he never once considered the possibility that he might HAVE weaknesses. Thus, when his Kryptonite Expy is discovered, he'll be taken by surprise when it depowers him, weakens him, makes him feel sick, etc...

  • Confirmed, it's the remains of his ship.

Since the metal of Brandon's ship is his Kryptonite equivalent, a sequel will reveal that he is also gonna be weak to magic and also have a Red Sun equivalent as yet another weakness.

A sequel to this movie will feature Fantastic Racism.

The sequel will be actionized and will have a team of telekinetic heroes take on Brandon.
  • And these telekinetic boys later on team up with the Batman Expy and Buzz Lightyear Expy, and they work together and form a superhero team.
    • Also, the aforementioned Elastigirl Expy also joins the aforementioned superhero team.

Brandon actually doesn't want to kill anyone
However, his species has an innate urge to kill people who have wronged them, no matter how slight.
  • Confirmed

All the way back in the very first teaser trailer, there were concerns from Brandon’s parents about him finding the ship he arrived in. About him being “drawn to it.” The ship is the source of his powers, as well as the source of his homicidal insanity. And him finding it is what kicks off the whole nightmare for everyone involved...

This movie takes place in the Wanted Universe.

The sequel would have a Time Skip
Brandon is now in his late teens, abusing his powers left and right. He took the name "Brightburn" from his town for his masked identity simply because he thought it sounded cool. Caitlyn, the girl he pined for, is threatened to be his girlfriend and a frequent victim of his abuse. The planet lives in fear as "Brightburn" will go out and cause destruction for random whims. He soon discovers what he is and finds out why he was launched into space.

The telekinetic heroes, the heroic versions of Superman Rogues, the Elastigirl Expy, and the evil versions of heroes that reform and become heroes will eventually form a Justice League equivalent of sorts.

There will be NO sequel

Alternatively, there will be a sequel, except it will be featuring a different evil version of a superhero.
  • Furthermore, it will be a Stealth Sequel that does not feature Brandon until the end.

The heroic members of Brandon's species show up and they will be lead by a heroic Expy of Zod.

The Big T is Yondu Udonta
They are both Michael Rooker, after all.
  • Alternatively, he's the Brightburn universe's equivalent to Merle Dixon. He seems kooky and paranoid enough.

The sequel will take place in a post-Brandon/supervillain-ravaged world.
Taking place from the point of view of a group of survivors trying to kill the supers. Similar to The Ten-Seconders.

The Crimson Bolt is our Batman expy.
Only instead of being evil, he's just wildly incompetent.

How a sequel might play out.
Brandon has grown into adulthood, and has become the most feared, most dangerous threat to the planet Earth. Pretty much everyone is completely paranoid that he could show up out of the blue and murder them in a horrifically painful way for no reason, and he's pretty much sitting on top of the world.

Then, an Alien Invasion occurs, and Brandon discovers that they're HIS people. He might try to roll out the welcome wagon, maybe even expect to be welcomed into their ranks... and be coldly rejected. They will then deliver unto him a revelation that he's nothing more to them than a Tyke Bomb made to destablize the planet to make their takeover easier. In fact, Brandon only has a FRACTION of their powers, and they show him just how powerful his own creators really are.

Brandon's whole worldview will be shattered, and he'll have an existential crisis over how he's nothing to his own people, and he had no real purpose in life other than to make his world easier for someone else to take over. From there, he swears revenge upon his species and forms an Enemy Mine with humanity (and possibly other superbeings) to help stop his race. The film will end with him leaving Earth and becoming a Terror Hero, known and feared throughout the galaxy. In other words, he'll become a hero in the end, with Superman's powers and Batman's mentality.

  • So basically, Brandon himself becomes a hero in the end? Awesome idea.
    • And as a counter-balance, a hero with skills and abilities similar to Batman will show up, but he'll have a patriotic, optimistic Ideal Hero type of mentality.

The future sequels to Brightburn will all be anti-superpowers
All the villains will have powers of various sorts, and every hero will be a Badass Normal or technology-based hero rather than a powered hero.

Relating to the above, all the earthly superbeings will be good (well, better), whilst all the alien ones will fall under Aliens Are Bastards
All the superbeings from Earth will either be outright heroic, pet as many dogs as they kick or have understandable motivations. The aliens, on the other hand, will be Always Chaotic Evil or possess a twisted moral code; even the nominally good ones will fall in this category.
  • Alternatively, it will be earthly heroes and alien heroes vs. earthy villains and alien villains.

This movie is part of DC's Dark Multiverse.

There are no superheroes in that universe.
It will be up to ordinary humans to stop an evil version of the Justice League.
  • Alternatively, there are superheroes, but unfortunately, most of the superheroes have been murdered prior to the events of Brightburn, leaving only a few superheroes left.

Caitlyn will grow up to become the world's first superhero to take down Brandon.
After years of therapy, and being taken in by Big T, Caitlyn gains a bionic hand and has made it her mission stop Brandon to avenge her mother Tori, in addition to the countless people he and the other evil superhumans have been killing. Either utilizing experimental armor or gaining powers of her own, Caitlyn becomes the Earth's champion and the sequel's protagonist.

  • Confirmed in a deleted scene, where Caitlyn is shown in a lab undergoing surgery to graft a bionic arm onto her, with a Death Glare, clearly planning revenge on Brandon for killing her mother.

Alternatively, Caitlyn will become a reporter in the future.
After spending years in a mental hospital, Caitlyn moves to a different state and gets a job as a reporter. Little does she know that Brandon will be there with a new identity. His new name will be Mark Dent.

Or even better, Caitlyn will become both a reporter AND a superhero.
Unfortunately, she will indirectly develop a rogues gallery.

Alternatively, Caitlyn will become a supervillainess
Either snapping under the trauma or driven to evil over her quest to kill Brandon and avenge her mother, Caitlyn will become a villainess herself. She will still be A Lighter Shade of Black compared to Brandon, being Affably Evil, less unnecessarily murderous and may even perhaps pull a Heel–Face Turn in the end.

Alternatively, Caitlyn will still become a superhero, but of the Terror Hero variety.
Think Hit-Girl as an Ideal Hero, but still terrifying as hell, and also as a cyborg.

There will be an "Evil Batman V. Evil Superman" sequel.

The Big T himself has superpowers.
However, they will be psionic as opposed to Brandon's physical powers.

Evil Batman Expy will try to convince Brandon to rule by his side.
He will go as far as to befriend Brandon and take him in as his adopted son. He will even have a "We Can Rule Together" speech for the boy.
  • This will cause the evil Batman Expy to become the Evil Counterpart to The Big T, as The Big T will adopt Caitlyn Connor.

Brightburn somehow takes place in the same universe as Hot Fuzz.
And the remaining members of the NWA, after hearing about Brandon Breyer, find a way to escape the prison and form a Brandon Breyer-worshipping cult.

Caitlyn will become the new Boltie.
Crimson Bolt will return and make her his new partner. They will stop Brandon and the other villains... somehow.

Alternatively, Caitlyn will become her own superhero, but will still be an ally of Crimson Bolt anyways.

The picture of Crimson Bolt is not that of Frank Darbo.
Someone else is taking up the mantle. This new guy is more psychotic and violent than Libby/Boltie. Libby is a kitten compared to this new Crimson Bolt.

Alternatively, if Crimson Bolt returns in the sequel and it will not be Frank Darbo and if he'll be more psychotic than Frank Darbo.... well, he will definitely be more crazier than Frank, but at least nowhere above Libby/Boltie.

The pod that corrupts Brandon can corrupt humans too.

The film takes place in the same universe as Unbreakable
And keeping in light with comic traditions, David Dunn will come back, but far more powerful, now lacking his weakness to water, and his powers being boosted to utterly absurd levels, as he's lost all the self-doubt that restrained him.

The pod contains a zombie virus.

The ship's metal that cut Brandon will come into play in the sequel
Luthor Expy will use that metal to create a war suit.
  • That would be hilarious to see. An Alex Jones-style conspiracy theorist wearing an Iron Man-like battlesuit.

This will lead to a spin-off involving superhero versions of Final Girls.
Unfortunately, the downside is that it would lead to supervillain versions of both classic and modern horror movie monsters.

Since this movie is a slasher movie with superhero elements, the sequel will escalate things by being a zombie movie with superhero elements.
With Brandon becoming the Governor with superpowers, and his archenemy being a Rick Grimes expy with superpowers.

In a sequel, a Pew Die Pie Expy will show up as a superhero.
And as an example of Rule of Funny, he will be played by Felix himself.
  • This new protagonist's user name would be either Pow Der Cake, or Pow Live Cake.
  • The new protagonist's birth name would be Phillip Nilsson. Alternatively, Felix Nilsson.
  • Said Pew Die Pie expy would have powers similar to the ones from the Infamous games.
    • His weapon of choice is a P-shaped battle-axe with spikes on the blades.
      • His vehicle of choice would be a robotic horse called Jurgen.
      • His pets would be three German Shepards named Edgar, Sven, and Maya.
      • His girlfriend would be an Italian-American woman named Melissa Karzia, played by Pew Die Pie's real-life girlfriend.
      • His main motivations for fighting Brandon would be to protect his girlfriend, America, Italy, and Sweden from Brandon.

This movie takes place at the canonical end of the Wanted Universe.

There will be a real Superhero film made as an Inversion to Brightburn.
Like the "Incorruptible" to Brightburn's "Irredeemable". Brightburn was about someone with a Superhero Origin story becoming a villain, so this would be about someone with a Supervillain Origin story becoming a hero.

The plot would involve some creepy, antisocial, awkward kid who's mercilessly bullied at their school. Maybe they'll even have a really crappy home life. Anyway, one day, they'll gain superpowers from something. They could discover an Artifact of Doom that grants them scary powers, or begin studying a certain field of something to develop a Super Serum or Power Armor/weapon, or maybe even bonding with some alien symbiote that feeds on their rage, or strong emotions in general.

From that moment, the kid will then decide to use their newfound powers to get even with everyone who was ever mean to them. From there, when they confront their tormentors, they'll immediately bring about their new powers and use them to terrify and hurt their bullies. However, at the last moment, they'll see genuine fear in their victims, and realize they've become no better then those who hurt them. They will immediately stop, apologize, and leave.

From there, that kid will decide to use their powers for something different. After hearing stories of what Brightburn and the other villains have been doing, the kid will decide to become a hero their world needs to protect them against the threats they represent.

Brightburn is set in The Boys Universe.

Brightburn is set in a Dark Multiverse of the DCEU.

Some of Brandon Breyer's victims will come back to life and they will have powers of their own.
Which they will use to take down Brandon. Karmic Death, anyone?

A sequel will be an Evil Batman Vs. Evil Superman movie, then a third sequel will be an Evil version of Justice League.
  • The sequel's title will be Frostshade V. Brightburn: Dawn of Chaos.
  • The third sequel featuring the Evil Justice League will be titled Brightburn: Death Cult.

A sequel will feature a Tommy Jarvis Expy with superpowers and a Laurie Strode with superpowers as the main protagonists.
  • Since "Brightburn" is basically Superman fused with Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, it's fitting that expies of survivors who dealt with Jason and Michael to oppose "Brightburn".

A sequel will feature Crimson Bolt gaining superpowers and battling Brandon Breyer.

Brandon's obsession with human organs was the result of his x-ray vision manifesting.
Hence why those pictures were mixed in with his lingerie models.

A heroic alien will show up to stop Brandon in a sequel.
And he could be played by Keanu Reeves.

A sequel to Brightburn would involve a team of heroic alien-hunters with high-tech weapons fighting against Brandon Breyer.
  • And it will become a slasher movie because Brandon will try to violently pick off the alien-hunters one by one.

In a sequel, Caitlyn Connor will become a superhero with a super-strong bionic arm, but it will be revealed that her bionic arm was created by a benevolent group of aliens.
  • And it will turn out that she will join a team of other people who have gained cybernetic powers thanks to the benevolent aliens' technology.
  • But it will still become a slasher movie, because Brandon will try to violently pick off the benevolent group of aliens and their cyborg friends one by one.

A sequel will explore Brandon in his adulthood as a father.
  • Basically, The Stepfather with superpowers.

In a sequel, Brandon becomes The Atoner and becomes a superhero a'la Max Damage in terms of personality.
But his attempts at heroism fail miserably, turning the sequel into a horror-comedy.

In a sequel, the main heroes will be parodies of Youtubers.
  • Including parodies of Pew Die Pie, Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, etc.
    • That would be too comedic and lighthearted for the Brightburnverse. Perhaps the protagonists will be regular Youtubers who gain superpowers.
    • Not necessarily. It would be a horror-comedy, with the parodies of Pew Diepie, Jacksepticeye, Markiplier also being expies of male slasher movie victims. Their enemies would be evil expies of Deadpool, Shazam, John Constantine, and Kick-Ass.

In the sequel, Brightburn's archnemesis will the Expy of the Joker, not Lex Luthor.
Lex Luthor is already revealed to be a mere Conspiracy Theorist in this universe, so it's unlikely that he will be able to do much excepting rallying the people against Brandon. The Joker, on the other hand, is unmentioned, so there is a lot of ways his version can go.
  • Seeing how the Joker in Joker (2019) is a lower-class nobody who ends up amassing a large following through his words and actions, this might just work.

Alternatively, Brightburn's archnemesis will still be the Expy of Lex Luthor, but as it turns out, the Lex Luthor Expy secretly has a high-tech, EMP-proof mech-suit ready.

Brandon is not a brood parasite
His species are actually hyper-advanced, peaceful space-farers who seed primitive worlds with superpowered infants (tailored to fit in appearance-wise with the natives) in the hopes of uplifting and improving civilization across the universe. The syntax of the 'take the world' message is ambiguous in the alien language, but the intended meaning was more along the lines of 'lead the world'. Brandon was supposed to use his powers like Superman did: to fight injustice and protect the innocent. Unfortunately, he turned out to be a sociopathic little bastard. It happens.

There will be a crossover with Dead by Daylight.

The Joker Expy will be yet another Youtube conspiracy ranter in the Brightburn Universe.
Guess where the money he makes with his conspiracy theory videos goes to....

Brandon Breyer was originally gonna be an adult female character called Brianna Breyer.
Hence why Billie Eilish's Bad Guy is the theme song of the movie Brightburn.

Brandon Breyer is possessed by a demon from the Brightburn Universe's equivalent of the Phantom Zone.

Brandon Breyer will redeem himself in a sequel, but considering the dark nature of the Brightburn universe, Brandon Breyer's Redemption Equals Death.
  • And then the Brightburn Universe's version of the U.S. Goverment starts making an army of Brandon Breyer clones.

Brandon Breyer will be featured in Dead By Daylight as a killer, and in the lore it will be revealed to be conspiring with The Entity somehow.

IDW will make a Brightburn comic book series.
And it will crossover with Joe Hill's the cape. The crossover will reveal that the magic cape was NOT entirely burned and somebody else now has the magic cape.

Alternatively, Image Comics will make a Brightburn comic book.
Think Hack/Slash with supervillains instead of serial killers and monsters.
