Re: Can Metallo character work in a Superman movie ??
I was thinking they could combine his classic origin (criminal/murderer who's in a near-fatal accident and has his brain transplanted into a robot body) and his modern origin (guinea pig for a military-contracted Lexcorp project). In essence, it would be a bit like Robocaine from Robocop 2 with Lexcorp replacing OCP.
Superman with realistic physics isn't Superman.
