Default Is General Swanwick Martian Manhunter?

Here are the things I saw him on the character to believe should be Martian Manhunter;
Hes not so shocked when superman revealed his x-ray vision or when he was flying, or even when he broke the handcuffs as Hamilton and Hardy were.
Superman could saw him with his X-ray vision but don't want to expose him
Superman told him that he trust him to convince the military that he's not a threat.
He has the black type for MM and could be possible cause MM camufalge himself maybe a new origin on the military?
Here's my theory.. as Wraith on Superman Unchained maybe MM landed on earth after his race was extingued.. The military received and MM serve the U.S. army without not revealing his true identity.
Another posible way is that General Swanwick (he decided to retire himself and leave the charge to Mayor Lane then General Sam Lane) could be moved away by General Sam Lane and then changing his identity as John Jonz and working as a Detective or a Special Force man but that's only a theory..
What's your opinion? Agree or Disagree?
Do you want MM be revealed after BvsS or in JL movie?

I liked Swanwick in MOS and I would love it if a plot twist revealed he was the Martian Manhunter.

Normally I would roll my eyes, but when one thinks about it, MM could go through MANY disguises and aliases trying to "try out" different personas. Also, I liked Harry's performance and his voice is very commanding. I could dig him as the MMM.

I'm cool with it. Just because I'm so ready to see MMH, and I like Harry Lennix, and it'd be a fun twist. It was weird that he read that line from TDKR too at Comic Con.

I like the idea because they would've already introduced MMH, and this DC universe desperately needs to be expanded if they plan on doing JL. With MMH already introduced, we can possibly see the likes of Aquaman and a new GL

Sounds like a good idea. Unless they wanted to go the JL cartoon route which had him being in the government's custody for many years.

Actually this kinda makes sense! Normally would think it's a bit far fetched but I really liked Harry Lennix in MoS and would love to see more of him in the next movies..

His planet was destroyed by Darkseid thousands of years ago, and he was the sole survivor. He traveled to Earth and hid until he decided to adopt a human persona once humans started to emerge. In the present day, he worked to become a general, in order to prevent another Darkseid invasion.

I like this idea. I also like the idea of him being so into his persona that he loses a sense of identity for a little while, and watching Superman/Batman band together kind of brings that back

If General Swanwick is Martian Manhunter, I wouldn't mind seeing more exchanges like this between him and Superman :

Harry would be awesome for the role (mo cap) with his voice and acting as if he were in disguise mode.. I liked him on MOS

Rewatched the movie the other day... the way Henry says "you wont" is the only piece of bad acting on his part in the movie.


And I HATE the "are you effing stupid" line...He should've just said "are you crazy" or something...anythings better than are you effing stupid

If he is indeed the Martian Manhunter, then you could have fun with the different personas J'onn can be, whether it would be a hardass general or quiet detective. This is an example.

I didn't see a problem on this line... seemed in line of "never gonna happen" .. I saw henry with its face and his presence pretty good in that scene IMO
