RUMOR: Metallo The Villain Of BATMAN VS SUPERMAN

Had enough Batman Vs. Superman news yet? Of course not! Well, the latest is more of a rumor, but it's claiming to know which DC villain that actor Callan Mulvey may portray in the Man of Steel sequel!

By DCMarvelFreshman - 12/4/2013


In the wake of Fast and the Furious actress Gal Gadot landing the Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel, there's been quite a handful of news surrounding the production today. Including appearances by several other Justice League members, it's also been reported that the studio is circling Australian actor Callan Mulvey for the movie's villain, whose identity is unknown.

Now according to Think Mcfly Think sources, the role Callan Mulvey is currently being eyed for is none other than Metallo! The supervillain cyborg, whose trademark is his kryptonite power source, has battled both Superman and Batman. Also, he was once a member of the villainous Injustice League against Justice League.

However, the report also claims that Callan Mulvey was once up for the role of Lex Luther, who's been rumored to appear in Batman Vs. Superman for the longest. And as the source speculates, this either indicates that Lex Luther is no longer the villain of Batman Vs. Superman, which could be due to recent script rewrites, or Warner Bros. are considering another actor for that role. Nevertheless, Think Mcfly Think seemingly hit the nail on the head with their Gotham TV series scoop a month before it was confirmed, and they technically were the first to report on Warner Bros. developing a Batman/Superman movie... two years ago. But considering a lot of their scoops have turned out to be only rumors, take this information with the usual grain of salt. But if true, what would you think?


Starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne, Batman Vs. Superman (currently the working title) is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17, 2015!

Metallo has been my choice of villain for the movie since day one. I still think the movie feels crammed and is going to suck but, at least the cinematography and Ben Affleck will be good.

Metallo vs Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman?
Viltrumite - 12/4/2013, 4:52 PM
Lex and Metallo will probably both be in the film. In Grant Morrison's Action Comics run and in Geoff John's Superman: Secret Origin, Lex was connected responsible for Metallo's origin, so it'll fit.

Cap 2 has;

Captain America
Black Widow
Falcon
The Winter Soldier
Barton the Leaper
Crossbones
Robert Redford Character (supposedly a villain)
Arnim Zola
Nick Fury
Maria Hill
Agent 13 (Kate)
Peggy Carter

The only confirmed characters in this movie is;
Superman
Batman
Wonder Woman
Lois Lane
Martha Kent
Perry White

Your argument is invalid. GTFO.

thebearjew - 12/4/2013, 4:54 PM
looking forward to seeing how mr.sunday is going to cram all this DC news into one small video
CavEl - 12/4/2013, 4:55 PM
The guy rumored to be in the running can only be Metallo, Maxwell Lord or Vandal Savage.

Damn sure as well isn't a Lex Luthor. Still, I refuse to get excited for this movie. Still waiting for Snyder to prove to me it's a Superman sequel and not a Batman movie featuring Superman.

Better be Lexi and Metallo with the creation of Doomsday going on in the background preparing us for JL with the team forming at the end and picking up in 2017 with JL with direct continuation.
DudeGuyMan - 12/4/2013, 4:56 PM
I give up.

redlion - 12/4/2013, 4:56 PM
Hmmmm.....two metallic based villains in one year. Ultron and Metallo, interesting.

@MrCBM56: Cap, Falcon, The Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Robert Redford would be the only real main characters from what I've understood from footage and details so far. Batroc the leaper is for one scene, I guarantee it. Crossbones would be a secondary character. Arnim Zola is flashback, guarantee it. Agent 13 and Peggy would also be very minor and I don't see Maria Hill having that big of a role. The fact that you brought Marvel up in a DC post is funny, although I've been guilty of it too, hypocrite I am.

Every time I leave to go do something there's more DC news and rumors. God damn!
ForeverPowerful - 12/4/2013, 5:03 PM
Called it.
BatManiac - 12/4/2013, 5:03 PM
Yes! This is more great news! Man, I'm so happy!

However, Metallo can't carry the movie on his own, so I have a strong feeling Lex Luthor is the head honcho, which is exactly what I want!

WB/DC, you have made me one happy fan today! I can't wait!
EdgyOutsider - 12/4/2013, 5:06 PM
@MrCBM56: Umm... why you trying to insult me? I guarantee just cause I have a gut feeling on it. As far as Zola goes, I did relook it up. Integral part? Sure. But, not a big enough role that it'll be one of reasons for it to over crowd.
HavocPrime - 12/4/2013, 5:07 PM
This is sounding brilliant, 2015 is going to be an awesome year for CBM's
ForeverPowerful - 12/4/2013, 5:09 PM
It makes the most sense, Supes takes Lex, Bats takes Metallo.

If you saw how MOS ended, you could tell the follow up villain was gonna be either Metallo or Parasite...looks like Doomsday is for JL.
Prime - 12/4/2013, 5:12 PM
@ Forever I think it will be the other way around.
DynamicDynamo - 12/4/2013, 5:14 PM
I would definitely take this with a grain of salt.
BatManiac - 12/4/2013, 5:14 PM


Ignition - 12/4/2013, 5:15 PM
Confirmed Superman characters: Clark/Superman, Lois Lane, Perry White, Ma Kent
Rumored Superman characters: Metallo, Lex Luthor, Doomsday
Confirmed non-Superman characters: Bruce/Batman, Wonder Woman
Rumored non-Superman characters: Dick Grayson/Nightwing, the Flash

And we know it will explore the ramifications of the first movie. Still feels like it's Superman-centric.

The news is too much! I need some rest, DC news is just exploding!

SuperCat - 12/4/2013, 5:16 PM
Was hoping for Bainiac, But he'll do.

MrCBM56 - 12/4/2013, 5:17 PM
I hope we get actually get a terminator style Metallo! Not a human with a hole in his chest filled with Kryptonite, but an actually robot kind of thing! Man im so excited!
MrCBM56 - 12/4/2013, 5:18 PM

[frick] YEAH! That's the metallo I want!
EdgyOutsider - 12/4/2013, 5:18 PM
@MrCBM56: Iron Man 2 wasn't over crowded. Spider-Man 3 was. Iron Man 2 didn't fully develop their characters and spent more time on Shield, The Avengers, Tony's dads involvement and Tony dying. They tried focusing on too much different things. I just think Batman vs. Superman is getting crowded because this is suppose to be a Superman movie and I feel it'll be DC's Iron Man 2 in the sense that in the end, it's advertising for the big event rather than focusing on the current story. Plus, Wonder Woman being in the mix as well as potentially other characters (if believed to be true) like The Flash, etc it just feels like they are trying to cram in too much so they can play catch up and not do the individual movies. In a way, it's smart because they aren't risking the possibility of losing money. At the same time, I just have a really bad feeling they're just trying to advertise more to Justice League than they are about making a really good movie. Which they need cause Man of Steel? IMO is... eh.

A villain that's very often compared to another villain in another superhero movie released the same year.......
BatManiac - 12/4/2013, 5:22 PM
@MrCBM

Metallo will be awesome and I have no doubt about that after seeing how awesome Zod and Faora was. Wonder Woman, however, is going to own this movie, even more than Batman.
ForeverPowerful - 12/4/2013, 5:24 PM
@Prime

Supes would be weakened by the Kryptonite, it would make sense for Bats to take him since were getting a more physical luthor. And the hint that they are going to reverse engineer kryptonian technology to make a suit of armor, that sounds like Lex.
BatManiac - 12/4/2013, 5:24 PM
Didn't some of you get the memo? This is MORE than just a Superman movie, evidently.
dracula - 12/4/2013, 5:25 PM
if the villains doomsday it makes sense for the trinity to be in it but for metallo no
SuperCat - 12/4/2013, 5:26 PM
MrCBM56 - 12/4/2013, 5:26 PM
Batmaniac

No doubt.

Edgy

Fair enough.

Sage

How often are the two compared? I can honestly say that I've never see a. Comparison. The two differ in a lot of ways, not even worth stating.
Ocelot - 12/4/2013, 5:27 PM


So we're going get a lame predictable third act team up between the two, film should have been about Batman and Superman clashing heads which culminates in a titanic showdown between the two.

Hearing absolutely nothing on Lex with this film, wouldn't be surprised if Batman takes the "luthor" role of the movie. If the main villain is Metallo, the military will probably end up creating him. I dont see them doing another extraterrestrial threat like Brainiac, though they could make him a computer.

"Didn't some of you get the memo? This is MORE than just a Superman movie, evidently."

Exactly! Much much more! Much much better!
