So if you've been keeping up with Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice you've probably already seen the images with Scoot Mcnairy boasting the green socks. The question on everyone's mind must be why green socks and who is he playing in the movie that would require this. I have seen answers from The Flash to a disabled Robin as well as most recently a new take on Oracle. Though they all seem plausible the one that i really believe possible is that he is set to play John Corben A.K.A super-villain Metallo.
My reasoning behind this is all speculation and also going through Metallo's history putting pieces together from Man of Steel and what we know for Batman vs Superman Dawn Of Justice. We do know Dawn of Justice takes place right after the events of Man Of Steel, knowing this means there will be consequences for Superman's destruction. These consequences will include the peoples trust towards him, the money it'll take for metropolis to be rebuilt, and also if my hunch is right a certain someones revenge. That certain someone will turn out to be Scoot Mcnairys character John Corben who in turn becomes Metallo following Superman's destruction. I believe he will have had an accident caused by the destruction leaving him for dead but being the friend of a certain someone turns that around. That friend is Lex Luthor ladies and gentlemen and we all know how he feels about superman.
I also believe John Corben will be a friend to Clark to begin with when he begins working at The Daily Planet which leads to him falling for Lois Lane. This leading into a love triangle that will surely heat things up between Clark and John. I also love the idea that leading up to the fight between Metallo and Superman will serve for some good conflict for him. He will know who Metallo really is and know he is in fact a creation of his destruction. This conflict will be a huge part for superman to overcome on top of everything else he has going on. Lets get back to how Metallo will go from Daily Planet writer to supervillain in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
Yes the man who despises Superman more than anyone the big bad baldie himself Lex is the fire that ignites Corben! I believe Lex will help rebuild John Corben with the technology from Lexcorp and thus manipulating him to take down Superman. In the comics Metallo needs uranium to keep alive and thats not something you can just walk in to any store and pick up. The bribe that Lex is sure to setup is Uranium in return for it he asks for superman alive to be able to experiment on him.That is what Lex's goal is, he wants to be like Superman but is limited due to being human. This is where Metallo comes into play Lex knows he cant really take down Superman he is limited, but Metallo he is nearly indestructible there is no way he can fail. This leads to a giant battle between Superman and Metallo maybe along with Batman? Take this with a grain of salt as nothing is set in stone yet! Id love to know who you think Scoot Mcnairy is set to play in Batman vs Superman!
