Have I seen 24. How could you even ask me such a question.
I'm sorry I see what you're saying. Still, I would love to see him get a go at it.

If anybody could make it work, Kiefer can.

I am actually a year behind on 24. I am on season 5, or finishing it up.

I could see Jude Law as Aquaman. He needs to bulk up a little though.

That might work if he bulked up. For some reason I picture Aquaman as a very imposing figure.

For some odd reason I want a british actor to portray Metallo...he just always seemed to have that air about him...plus McDowell's portrayal was pretty good.

That's not odd. As I said earlier having him be an english speaking (meaning a british kind of accent) fellow would put him in line with TAS version.

No. I believe he was talking about the guy who is playing Loomis.

The guy who is playing Myers is Tyler Mane, Sabertooth from X-Men.

I know this was a rumor WAAAAY back during the very early Superman Returns days (before we knew the actual plot), but some guy came along with his inside source saying that in SR, Jor-El would be played by Jim Caviezel and John Corben would be played by Kevin Bacon.

I actually really like the Bacon as Corben casting. I think it would work well.

Would love to have Hugo Weaving as Brainiac.

Gerard Butler was great in 300. I'd be on board with a role for him in MOS.

After seeing Viggo Mortensen(-son?) in "A History of Violence" I'd second seeing him as a bad guy in MOS.

Kevin Sorbo was hoping to be Superman at one point, and he's a lot of fun, and he's already more or less bulked up. Would like to see him in MOS too.

And can't we somehow get Ahnold on board? If not as a directly-punched villain (he is getting to grandpa age, after all), then as an evil corporate type?

Yes. And its name is Superman Animated Series, episode called "THe way we all flesh"

I just mixed the Returns storyline with the episode.

Why is Metallo in such high regards on these boards? I always have found the character boring - even the best verion from Animated ADventures. What am I missing about him that causes his name to come up so often?

What if people thought he died in a car accident and was made into Metallo by Lex or someone and goes after Superman. But, Jason finds out what happens and goes after Lex or some professor out ofr revenge and Superman has to convince him not to. Plus, if it is Lex this coudl be his revenge on Superman by making his son a murderer and like him.

Martin Henderson gave a really good performance in Flyboys and he looks a lot like John Corben IMO, so i would like to see him in the role.

And whoever suggested Viggo Mortensen, that is a great choice as well.

Default Am I only person who doesn't want Metallo to appear in The Man of Steel?

One of the main reasons why critics, fanboys, and audiences bashed Superman returns was because they used Kryptonite again as Lex Luther or the villain in general's way of defeat Superman. Now fanboys are begging and drooling for Metallo. Metallo basically a guy with rock his chest who has super strength ( almost every villain now days has that ablity. Only reason how he got the ablity to expand size is because he sold everything that was human to the denom Neron. Metallo is no different then the Kryptonite continent or huge mountain of Kryptonite or what ever you want to call it. They are both ways recycle things that have been done hundreds of times and try to make new again. In other words, it's like having a box of the same old cookies with a new box. For , those who say Metallo is a "great" visual, he is not. Robots or cyborgs or what ever you want to call them have been done to death in the movies. Audiences want to see something new and exciting. Metallo and Superman fight would just like the one in SR where Lex and his idiots because they had Kryptonite flashing around Superman's face. Heck, Bruce Timm and Paul Dini had a hard time writing Metallo epsiodes because he had that dumb rock in his chest. Even though Brainiac is a robot, he is different. He doesn't need a rock to bring Superman to his knees because he has Artificial intelligence of advanced alien orgin;
  • Superhuman strength
  • Physical resistance
  • Telepathy
  • Telekinesis
  • Ability to manipulate energy derived from cybernetic form.

I'm just not really interested in Metallo. I find Brainiac to be much more interesting.

I wouldn't mind seeing a John Corben Cameo but no Metallo.

I wouldn't mind seeing braniac, but I would also like to see a kickass action sequence, just not sure who should be used for that.
