It's an awesome idea imo because I love MM and the actor playing him. I doubt it though

Off topic.....I know this is cliche, but put yourself in his shoes.

On topic.....I would absolutely go crazy if Swanwick turns out to be MM. That would be so incredibly awesome!

If he did turn out to be MMH I would be delighted, I really want to see him in a movie and soon and the guy who played General Swanwick would actually make a pretty good MMH as well.

Would love for this to be right and not just a theory.

Yeah exactly, if I were Superman and Zod threatened my mom, I wouldn't be able to show the restraint that Supes did, I'd probably train station his ass as soon as I could get my hands on the dude.

I still think its interesting that Harry Lennix read that TDKR quote at comic con. He wasn't that big of a character that it'd make sense for him to be at comic con. He was kinda out of place, but it'd make sense if Snyder had bigger plans for Lennix

People do realize that if Swanwick was John, thus having all of his powers, then he wouldn't need to bother in asking Superman on what his secret identity is and he could have talked with him telepathically so no one else could here.

I mean until some credible proof comes up to support this "desired" concept as being a reality, I think this is just a case of people wanting a character to be someone else that he clearly isn't.

It would be interesting, however one of my favourite parts of the character is the learning of humanity aspect, which would likely be lost if he's been around long enough to become a General.

Maybe he was just testing him. That's the excuse I would made if I retconned Swanwick into MM.

I'd be even more excited if Detective John Jones turned out to be Martian Manhunter.

And I'd love it if MM was played by Haysbert (or Lennix in makeup).

Flashbacks in the JL or a solo movie could do the job

I am just dying to see MM on screen, he is an under-rated character and one of my favourites from DC. So if WB wanted to make Swanwick into MM I would be delighted.

What I meant by "Agent Coulson" was that Swanwick's just an original character made for the films where he meets all the characters and soldifies this shared universe. Yeah I don't think he's got a man-crush on Superman, otherwise he'd be agreeing with the "He's kinda hot" girl

They could bring Lennix in to play J'onn J'onzz without saying he was that General all along. Just make Swanwick involved in first contact with the Martian during the Justice League movie, and have him treat J'onn well through it while the others treat him badly. Then have J'onn take on the appearance of Lennix later when he puts on a more human face. Maybe even kill off Swanwick to make the tribute even stronger.

That's not a bad idea, Afrobean, but I don't think any of us are so set on Lennix or the Swanwick character that we'd need that to happen.

If they go that route I'd rather have a different actor playing MM altogether. Maybe Lance Reddick, Peter Mensah, or Giancarlo Esposito?

Meh.
The interaction between MM and the other heroes makes for a unique dynamic; They are gods amongst gods, yet even in that company, he is a stranger in a strange land.
Even Superman, also an alien from a long one society/dead planet, can't truly relate, but CAN, ironically, teach him about humanity.
