Default The official unofficially officially official unofficial-- METALLO-- CASTING Thread!

So who would you cast as Metallo if we are lucky enough to get him for MOS as a character?

I remember Wentworth from Prison Break lobbying for a chance to play Zod. Maybe he'd be up for Metallo?



I alsways thought David Duchovny would work. Many people suggest Kevin Bacon. I wonder if there is a good english sounding fellow to get a bit of TAS feel that would work?

Hmm... Jude Law for Metallo? heh heh

I like the idea of Viggo Mortenson in the role.

I heard the rumor was that it'd be the machine gunner from SR. I wouldn't put much stock in it though.

I kind of ignore that rumor. Not that I'm saying it's a terrible idea, it just doesn't seem all that plausible.

It really doesn't. Warners will want box office gold if they green light Singer again. I really doubt they would let him use a glorified extra as a main character.

I don't understand where the heck that rumor started. It was such a small character that it would make no sense in my opinion.

My honest guess is because Singer spent a good portion of the SFX budget and put so much emphasis on such a small, insignificant scene...it seems pointless to never reference it again. Someone put two and two together...and a rumor is started.

2.3-2.4 million dollars might do that to some people.

I wish they continued the scene further, it would have made for a nice Superman moment. The SWAT finally arrives on the roof only to find the two hapless security guards standing there and all the bank robbers wrapped up in the helicopter blades. Then they say, "What took you so long".

Anyone else surprised that after many years of the Hype's existance and a Transformers movie, the name Optimus Prime has only recently been taken?

this sounds like it is from a saturday cartoon

Not necessarily, but villians such as Metallo, Brainiac, Bizzaro, Eradicator, Darkseid, fit with the theme started by SR.

I think if they got Kiefer for Metallo, he would prolly own the role. Throw Hugo weaving in as Brainiac, and boy oh boy, look out..

Kiefer as Metallo would be great...but I think he'd make a really good Aquaman in a JLA movie, so I'd prefer they save him.

Hmmm. I am not sure if he is imposing enough.

The character of Jack is imposing, Kiefer does not have the stature for Aquaman in my opinion. I like him as Metallo because of the armor to support him.

Have I seen 24. How could you even ask me such a question.
